    Hi. Raining here this morning and OH had a craving for something from the nearby supermarket. I have an on line order to pick up from the chemist next door, plus two prescriptions I was planning to collect on Monday. Phoned the pharmacy to see if by any chance the prescriptions were ready, not yet but if you give me an hour? I told him not to worry, I’ll come in on Monday, expecting that we’d be there and back in half an hour. By the time OH had got ready, found wherever he had left the car keys, found somewhere to park in town, and he’d dithered over the herbs and spices shelf, the prescriptions would have been ready. Now I’ve got to go back next week, grrrrrr.
    A fairly mild grumble, but it’s left me annoyed.

    @Ergates I'm finding the lack of fuel is focussing the mind a bit on unnecessary journeys! That would bother me too.

    Is that for this year or next year?

    We’ve been lucky down here, we got a full tank last week, and the garage we passed in town this morning had both diesel and E10, although no E5, and no queue. We are both retired and only do short trips, so at least we aren’t in desperate need. As long as we have enough petrol to get to the hospital if needed, we’ll cope. Hoping daughter gets home ok from her week away.

    That's lucky. None to be found anywhere round here without stalking where deliveries are going and waiting in a huge queue- luckily we don't use the car much!

    I drove past 2 filling stations. One, with 6 pumps, had 2 vehicles in it: another with 4 pumps had a van using the air  pump

    Bradley Walsh ! Is there anyone who has been more "promoted above their abilities"?
    Devon.

    I don't know what he's been promoted to but he seems ok to me so far
