So here we are another beautiful plague morning on the edge of the fen , lots of Apache gunships playing with the RAF today so its a tad noisy not sure whose they are but its war games season at the moment . This usually horrifies the incomers who buy homes here , it doesnt cross the mind that we are surrounded by huge operational air bases . If youre raised here you just dont notice them anymore. Wish id had my camera yesterday as the Spitfire went over with an Apache following it , that must take some skill slowing down enough to follow but where else could they get to do that .
Received a lot of wish bits and bobs i ordered before the lockdown yesterday . theres one mystery pack of seeds that i havent ordered , they look like tomato so i may just plant them in a pot out of curiosity . Is anyone else getting fed up with ebay and stuff coming from China , i know its drop shipping, it says its a UK seller but its not until you get the invoice it says its coming from China with a 5 week delivery date . Really need to visit Wilkos for loads of bits and bobs , does anyone know if they are open?
Then theres the whole sorry race carry on in the US , once again i think the edited highlights we get to see bear no resemblance to what is going on , more people are realising that we are being fed stories for our leaders political advantage . The UK wont ever understand the race issues in the US , we were a slave owning nation in a different sense , slave holding was only for the very rich who might have a few house servants as a status symbol , it was mainly within the empire that slavery was common , so it didnt ever cross anyones path at home . Until the 50s people rarely saw a black face in the UK , even in this day and age in most of the rural parts of the UK you will see no one black . There were so many poor in the UK that slaves wernt needed , though nowadays modern slavery is becoming more comman here . So what do i know not a lot ...and i admit it
