Something upset me this morning.....

Dairy farmers local to me have been forced to dispose of their milk. Apparently police have forbidden milk tankers access to smaller roads. Too dangerous I suppose but only because nobody is gritting smaller roads at all. The suspicion is a milk shortage is being averted by bringing it from mainland Europe on the relatively free-flowing motorway network.

I'm off for another cocoa.

I just walked down to our local co-op to discover only 6 pints left on the shelves.
So I bought 2 for the weekend.
The woman in front of me had 12 litres in her basket.
Maybe she has a big family

Just another example of the "we'll protect you from yourselves " state that Britain's turned into.
