What did we achieve today . . . ?

Kirkcudbright Hospital, Google Maps April 2021

Todays activities and expectations . . .


Get up at 7.30 am, go to local Hospital at 9.30 am and receive Flu and Covid vaccinations from nice Nurse.

Go to local electrical shop and pay for new microwave and small kettle to be delivered after shop closes at 4.00 pm.

Go to Hairdresser at 1.45 pm and both get haircuts – pay using new issue of Visa card using chip and PIN so that card becomes validated for contactless payments.

Discover that local garage that appears to have closed off its petrol pumps has done so because it is going to have a revamp, and not stop selling petrol permanently. Relief !


Wait around for delivery of new microwave, but nothing appears . . . but – – – – – by bedtime my OH tells me that the delivery being today was never a certainty. There’s a lot of misinformation about these days !

Wait around for Amazon delivery, initially “before 10.00 pm”, then “before 6.00 pm”, finally gets here in the dark at about 6.30 pm.

Put off eating because of expected deliveries so finally get sprouts and chilli con carne sometime after 5.00 pm.
