Following on from yesterday's post regarding the man on the doorstep selling his drawings. When my cleaning lady came this morning she listened to my story and told me that there had been something on Facebook yesterday about these people selling drawings - apparently there was a woman in the next village going round at the same time. So it was not genuine and it was indeed some sort of scam. Hopefully somebody will have phoned the Police in the area. Also I had an e mail from friend S saying the man had been there and that she too had felt sympathy for his situation - so that made me feel better.
It is worth pointing out to you that I have a chain on my front door so that the door opens only a fraction and no-one could enter. Also I always keep my Patio door locked and my kitchen door opens into my garage which is always locked, so I do feel fairly safe. Nevertheless, it is quite unnerving when this kind of thing happens.
Anyway enough of that. Today, after a pleasant, sunny start, it is now grey, breezy and cold. I had to go into town to post a letter (yes, I have a post box directly opposite my bungalow, but I had no stamps left) and to call at my Solicitors. But I came back home and made myself lunch and since
then have done very little other than read the paper and open my mail when it came. One of the things which came was my replacement Blue Disabled Badge for my car - it said to allow six weeks for renewal - I did so and it has come back almost by return - very impresive.
Another thing which impressed me today was that last week the wind blew over my green garden waste bin. I e mailed our local council asking if I could buy a replacement and this morning had a lovely e mail from them telling me not to worry they would call within the next week and either repair or replace it free of charge. So now I am sitting here thinking - the world is not such a bad place after all.
Keep well and virus free. See you tomorrow.
