“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and autumn was awakened.”
Not so Raquel Franco, we are back in a mini heath wave, it reached 31 degrees yesterday in places, but thankfully not here.
Anyway this blog is about the news and the new restrictions, which to my mind seem a little on the ‘WHAT’ side. Some areas are under a new lock down (ours being one of them). We cannot go to other peoples houses or have anyone visit us, however we can go shopping, work, the pub, restaurant, in fact anywhere else. The country as a whole now as to abide by the rule of six, people can only be in groups of six, can only have six people in their homes and gardens, however can still go to work, shopping, pub, restaurant, school and on protest marches of any number. Now to me I can see that some of these things are important and need to be done, but really are marches really that important that they out way the risk of spreading Covid?
The government body that monitors GPs has as good as said enough is enough GPs will have to start seeing people, there are far too many consultation being done on the phone and over the internet and not enough face to face being done, meaning thinks are being missed. The doctors in return have said they see people where appropriate. I have firsthand experience of this, remember a few posts back and the trouble I was having with my knee and leg, well the out come is I have not seen anyone face to face and am now having physio over the phone, yep that’s right. The physio phones me explains the exercise to me, then I just have to get on with it. Neither of us know whether or not I an doing these exercise correctly, or if I have correct alignment of all my body parts.
And on that note 😁
Mary Poppins decides to grow some vegetables. When she picks her crop in the autumn, her carrots, potatoes, onions, and spring beans have all failed, but her cauliflowers have grown a treat.
She picks them, cooks some for Sunday lunch in a cheese sauce, and they taste wonderful.
After eating them for a week she notices two things. Firstly, her lips are full and glossy, unchapped, uncracked, and require absolutely no lip gloss to make them look full and pouty.
Secondly she has really awful bad breath and even her cat won’t come near her.
Pleased with her lips, however, and spotting a money-making idea, she contacts a big cosmetics company and explains about the lip-enhancing qualities of her cauliflower crop.
After a month of testing the company buys the entire crop of cauliflowers for a phenomenal amount and requests that Mary grow some more as soon as possible.
The company proceeds to make lipstick out of them but experiences problems in the the final product manufacture. The lipstick does not gel correctly into a solid stick and ends up crumbling upon application. Quality controllers also find that, even as a lipstick, the bad breath remains and have to put it down as an unfortunate side effect.
As they are nearing their production deadline and adverts for this new wonder lip enhancer have hit the streets, the cosmetics company has no choice but to produce the packaging with the following caution.
Poppins’ Pop-up Lip Enhancer:
SUPER CAULI, FRAGILE LIPSTICK – EXPECT-HALITOSIS
BRIGHT BLESSING TO YOU ALL
(yes I have logged out and I am back, just heard that hunting groups don’t have to adhere to the rule of six either)
