This is just an observation and not meant to be in any way political. I am sure it applies to many men other than our Prime Minister and I am sorry if what I am about to say offends anyone's sensibilities, but this morning I watched our Prime Minister being interviewed on Breakfast Television and I couldn't help noticing (not for the first time) - and I couldn't help thinking I was meant to notice - that the way he sits leaves little or nothing to the imagination and in my view is in very bad taste. Am I old fashioned or am I prudish? I don't think so. In my younger (much) days I have posed as a model for painters - it is just that there is a time and place for everything and I just don't think political interviews on Breakfast Television is it. There, that's said, I will leave it there.
So, what kind of a day has it been with you. Here there has been torrential rain on and off and I believe the River Ure is well over and many local roads impassable. The good thing is that the river can go down just as quickly as it can come up. It is said to be able t o rise twenty feet in an hour. The gas man was scheduled to come to service my boiler before winter but he never arrived. I wondered if the state of the weather in the area had held him up but at half past one the Gas Board rang to say they were sorry but there had been so many call-outs through break downs that there just had been no time for their scheduled calls. They have remade the service for early December.
Other than that it has been an uneventful day with nothing much happening. Tomorrow is supposed to be much warmer as our weather comes up from the Azores and our torrential r ain should have passed out into the Atlantic.
After tomorrow I have two busier days - Thursday my Covid booster and Friday ear tests for a new aid. I have now completed my antibiotics for my urinary infection so I am hoping it has cleared up.
See you all tomorrow.
