Keep A Grip

Gas prices rise. Keep a grip. Income Support dips. Keep a grip. One for the price of two. Keep a grip. Profits drop. Pubs shut. Empty shelves. Employment hit. But keep that grip, says Boris.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool Image by mohamed Hassan from Pixabay   P.S. Out of politeness, I decided againstContinue reading “Keep A Grip”

Pressure – Silly-Savvy Poem

Pressure Lockdown, lockdown, when we going to lockdown? Now we’re in, now we’re in, when we going to get out? Lockdown, lockdown, when we going to lockdown? Get us out, get us out, when you going to get us out? Relax, caution, relax, caution. Back. Last one, hold on, last one, hold on. Hassle, hassleContinue reading “Pressure – Silly-Savvy Poem”

To My Beloved Boris

Dear Beloved Boris, Mixed messages from you this morning. The virus is out of control and further restrictions may be necessary. Schools are safe! Of all places, how can a classroom full of 30+ children, sitting in twos, who are not allowed to wear face masks[1], be safe? Where is the logic in your statement,Continue reading “To My Beloved Boris”

Business As Normal

Business As Normal Big surge. Fast spread. No end in sight. Breakfast briefing at Downing Street. Full English. Boris bursting with bacon. Pinged. Carpets bloody, but getting on with it. Business? As normal. Copyright owned by Jay Cool, November 16th, 2020 Image by Pexels from Pixabay

Storm Diary 12 – Celebrity

Tuesday 17th March 2020 Second day of Non-Sick Sprog’s home-schooling. That can wait. Today can be a late start. First, I must get to Aldi before all the shelves there are empty. Tesco has run out of tomatoes. And I need tomatoes. Tinned, boxed, tubed or free-fall – I need them! But, before I riskContinue reading “Storm Diary 12 – Celebrity”

Storm Diary 10 – Business

Storm Diary 10 – Business Sunday 15th March 2020 British. Business as usual. I check to see whether Non-Sick Sprog’s football match is still on. It is. We’re British, so why wouldn’t it be? Does a kids’ footy match count as a petri dish? Probably not. Lots of shouting and running around in the openContinue reading “Storm Diary 10 – Business”

Storm Diary 8 – Somethingness

Friday 13th March, 2020 Gave Non-Sick Sprogs lifts to school and work, avoiding all temptation to stop for a shop; have no wish to be coughed upon by the folk of Sudbury, whether they be the clientele of Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, or Waitrose! Returned home and washed my hands. Delivered Sick Sprog’s usual breakfast ofContinue reading “Storm Diary 8 – Somethingness”

Silly Politics – Boris’ Eggy Feet

Do I really want to go forward with 2020, when I’ve just had the most bizarre carrot on a stick dangled in front of my senses? Who, in the UK, or for that matter, the rest of the world, be it of American or European ilk, would want to egg old Boris on, as heContinue reading “Silly Politics – Boris’ Eggy Feet”
