Have we all escaped to the garden ? the blogging world is very quiet at the moment except for those of you on the opposite side of the world slipping into winter . Meanwhile ive dropped into the world of fishing and gardening . The veg is very late this year but thriving and ive had a couple of days of grandson on garden slave duties and despite there being snow on the ground when the plum was blossoming its looking like a bumper year . Outside in the real world im not sure im noticing much difference to our lives from the Covid restrictions . We dont holiday we dont go to cafes or pubs in fact we can pretty much not go anywhere due to his dire walking and breathlessness . MR BH starts another round of hospital visits in a fortnight so hes trying to cram as much fishing in as he can so its fish one day, two days zonked on painkillers life at the moment plus BIL had a bit of bad news health wise so ive now got two of them planning their funerals , I expect they are both being a tad over the top just yet . Its just wait and see time. I expect they will both fall into the latest government wheeze buzz phrase "managed decline " which i think is government speak for hurry up and die before you get your pension ! or if you love them as much as i do translates to Die Pleb Die . I have just posted off 600 pages plus of medical records and supporting letters and forms to the cold planes of Hell known as the DWP , we await with interest which of their many ploys for losing it they will go for . The usual its gone to the wrong department , this one had two different addresses to pick from to send it back to , you always pick the wrong one . We also usually get we havent received it letters at which point they get a huff on because you have proof of postage and tracking information and announce they will look for it , usually takes 2 weeks to find it . plus ive cunningly indexed it all stamped his National insurance onto every sheet and stuck pretty coloured tiny post it notes into the juicy bits . You never know i could be wrong they may just continue to pay him his state pittance without problems , but i cant see there has been any improvement in their behavior over the last year , theyre still killing the disabled on a regular basis. You know lessons learned and the usual bullshit speeches it goes on and on .
