    Hello all,day off today which I am glad of, we are being taken over/ merged with a new pharmacy group, some aspects will close and everyone on edge. Keeping everything crossed that all will be well but it’s a worry especially at the moment with the job market the way it is. 
    Raining here and windy but nothing too extreme hope you are all indoors warm and dry.

    Afternoon all.

    SGL, I hope so that nobody will be flooded. Winter plus virus, people don't need one more disaster.

    Hazel, nice that you done SM shopping. I'll go tomorrow.

    Rosie, Baileys, can I join you please?😊

    Debs, finger cross that all will be ok with job. Enjoy in rest of free day if you can.

    Here was reather pleasant day. Nice weather, I got one plant catalouge and seeds arrived from Italy. I ordered some conifer seeds and got two extra bags. Sadely, order seeds from UK becom almost unpossible.
    I have my readings for tonight and maybe join Rosie with glass or two.

    Hello everyone. Debs, that is rather worrying news. Will there be any redundancies and is your job one at risk? Ruby, excellent news about your Covid jab. Ante, is the difficulty with seeds because of import rules? I think I might join Rosie and yourself with a glass - my B's is salted caramel flavour.

    The main redundancies will be in the warehouse which will close and possibly some in head office. I am probably safe but I must admit I dislike change generally. 
    Ruby pleased you have had your jab. 
    Hope you can get the seeds you need Ante. 
    Baileys sounds good to me but trying to lose a few pounds. Not easy!

    Evening LB. It's about new rules about seeds and plants import/export between UK an EU. It' possible to import seeds but prices and taxes are just ridiculous on both sides.

    Debs, so nice to hear that your job is likely safe.

    I've just had a very depressing email from the Wildlife Trusts regarding the terrible news that the Government has granted emergency authorisation of a neonicotinoid pesticide for use on sugar beet. Sugar beet is not a flowering plant but bees and other pollinators will still be affected by it. It is going to be used as a seed dressing and will last for a long time in the soils, leaching into water courses and being taken up by roots, affecting plants and animals alike. I've signed the Wildlife Trusts' petition to the P.M. and emailed my M.P. Sometimes you just feel you are spitting in the wind (Ante: means wasting your time trying to do something that has little chance of any success).

    Sorry Ante, I should have refreshed my page as your post wasn't there when I typed mine. What a pain for you with the seed problem.
