I dont have a smart phone , crap hands mean i would just be tossing it on the floor all the time and theyre way out of my price range . My credit is so far through the floor that a contract phone isnt happening . Having an income below even normal benefit level doesnt compute . My other half has a smart phone hes attached to my hip so why would we need two phones ? Once they switch us to Universal credit i will have zero income and become a complete non person in the governments eyes .
But to lighten things up a little Tesco sent me a load of delivery slots for 3 weeks time , i always used to use Tesco for bulk deliveries as soon as lockdown started they ceased any local deliveries , havent seen a Tescos van for months . We have been stuck with the weird world of Morrisons and the strange substitutions once a month . So now we should be able to self isolate shop 10 weeks in beggars belief really .
I went down to pick up a prescription missing from the last bargain bucket of other halfs medication list .
Why had we not been using the delivery service ? Because we were told our son must pick up our prescriptions and he cant drive so surely one person picking them up makes sense . Plus he cant pick up one item on the list only i can as a nominee for class A drugs . So im still stood tapping my foot at the window in the sunshine 20 minutes later as they discuss procedure for controlled drugs in the current situation. We can only get a class A drug on a hospital prescription anyway and believe me it seems to cause tons of problems , theres always some new bright spark GP wants to put him back onto the new wonder drug that nearly killed him . They dont like it when you tell them to scroll back a bit and spot the seizures and heart problems it caused first time around .
Meanwhile fishing season is great this year BIL is likely to be off work for some considerable time so theyre toddling off together twice a week having got clarification back that its ok for him to fish with a carer due to disability . This gives me tons of time to work in the garden so im happily pottering .
We also got a letter from the council telling us all the help available to us as vulnerable tenants , better late than never , but out here i didnt expect help, the village network have supported the very elderly and ill the rest of us have muddled along as best we can
