So yesterday several days post flood we thought lets go to Lidl , he does the usual sit in the car and supervise and i hobble round , strangely the place was heaving , we'd just timed it wrong and it was 11.10 so after the silence everyone had gone in . plus there were hoards of pensioners trying to spend £40 to use there £5 off a £40 pound spend . I would struggle to spend £40 unless i bought loads of booze ...lol needs not wants shopping .
The worrying one is i buy the same stuff every month it usually costs £29 and it came to £31.60 so thats another little price rise this month , the food budget doesnt go up if your on a state income so all these little rises matter , your usually buying the cheapest own brands anyway so you cant just drop a brand in quality.
Theres an awful lot of flooding around here all the ground is waterlogged and we are due yet more rain , theres lots of breeches in the small rivers and land drains . the water was under the front door at the weekend but its a concrete floor and we just take up the carpet tiles till it goes back down . The passage at the side of the house was like a river . The roads are interesting in places and there are a lot of people cant read road closed flood signs to the locals endless amusement .
