So here we are at the Silver Jubilee Plague post . Well its sunday morning in the fens and its much like every other Sunday morning in the fens , sunny but a bitter wind so until it warms up a little i will sit and have yet another cuppa , put in several loads of washing and contemplate various garden chores i need to get round to . May take the cats out for a toddle as ive spotted a skip...lol nothing like raiding a skip for anything useful .
while trying to clean the awkward stair window last evening i nearly burnt out my retinas, now since lockdown there has been a bit of a competition going on with a couple of the neighbours who are stuck at home , there have been daily deliveries from the builders merchants , fork lifts whizzing about , much sounds of machinery etc . You can only see into the gardens from our tiny stair window and then only hanging out of it to clean it . One appears to have built a small brick bungalow at the bottom of his garden and the other has paved everywhere and installed a huge hot tub which i was truly unfortunate to witness at just the wrong time last night as he waddled down the yard to climb in stark bollock naked . Why me??
Then theres the fact that due to public outcry the Local Council is opening the household waste sites with social distancing rules , which seems like a good idea . Till you read all of it . You must go only with a prebooked appointment , it is only for garden waste , you may not take a trailer or van . Now it may be me , but surely fly tipped garden waste is the least of the fly tipping problem it will biodegrade where its dumped eventually , not ideal but thats what will happen , surely they would be better accepted ordinary none biodegradable waste to reduce fly tipping ? To obvious i feel .
Daft publishing of the day , i spotted a death by Corona map by postcode making the headlines in the Daily Heil , very misleading , it looks like there have only been the odd deaths in this county so it makes us look like the best holiday destination in the country come releasing everyone . Surely a map of Corona cases would have been more useful . The survival rates are really good here , you have to be damned unlucky to die from it . Mainly because we dont have a great many black or asian residents or areas with high density living . We also dont have a great many hospitals or GPS and a very high pensioner population , so if the hoards turn up it could quickly turn us in to the killing fields.
