    I should be in Tenby today, but I'm not. Instead I visited Home Bargain, the first shop that I have been in (other than the one I work in) in nearly a month.

    I also got to visit an abandoned premises, and opened a stinky neglected fridge that was full of Black Mould.... I may never recover my sense of smell....

    :urgh:

    Whether or not they open up again, I think that fridge needs flinging asap x

    He who must be ignored doesn't use it, in fact I don't think anyone does. He's volunteered to clean it anyhow, hope he does the same with the mouldy car....

    A small word of caution. This might be a one off. It may not be. I used Big Foodie last night, not the first time and it sure as hell wont be the last.
    Popped my ST postcode in and pre ordered for one of the very few Chinese takeaways on the list, Oriental Kitchen. Not our usual but take what we can, they dont deliver to our end so we arrange collecrion. All done and my wife sent to get the food.
    Its closed. Our order had been sent to the same named restaurant in Bilston, so it had either been mis-listed or a glitch with the website. Oriental Kitchen no longer appears and BF refunded me but just in case have a check on the confirmation email.

    Rather worrying, hopefully not. Even if not through that, it's not the best place to be at the moment (just had a relative catch the virus and die from it,whilst recovering well in hospital from a lung op)
    My heart skipped a beat or two when their cat ,who escaped the house while she was being put in the ambulance and sat guarding the ambulance, then decided to narrowly avoid being squashed under the wheels at it started off.

    Powered down my loft to fit some proper lights, my NAS box never came back up. Been trying to sort it since 4pm yesterday, looks like I may have lost some stuff I can't replace :(

    Yesterday
    I needed to visit Daughter's Front porch to collect "Brians Box" It went well, I picked up the box to return to the car..... Managed half way!!!!! The box began to fail! I began to lower it to the ground as quickly as possible! Not quite! the contents deposited themselves all over the drive.
    Daughter saved the day, Providing a washing basket (maintaining social distance) so the situation could be saved. Fruit and Veg all over the place.
    I proceeded to place all the goods in the basket. A couple passed on the other side of the road I called out " Its pick your own" Situation recovered Cost?
    One squished Tomato!

    Mangetout Rodney!

    What a lovely day for walking over the common field and around here.

    Could have done with an hour in the Kings Arms garden (for cooling purposes only) before heading home.

    It's here, postwar aerial photos don't seem to show any structure there.

    I'm sure that in the late 90's it was always covered in water, there was also a large semi buried pipe nearby, but we couldn't find that either...

    There were sidings off both sides of the 'main' line, but they were on the other side of Common Road.

    There was, however, a small siding to the south, where the VW place is now.
