PS: sorry I  missed WIP Wednesday. No matter, though – things are still quite boring (though subject to some concerning estimations of yardage)

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
