Fresh produce, shops.

I usually try to grow some fresh produce in my small container garden, but think this year it may actually be a necessary task as the supermarkets seem to be struggling to

Fresh fruit and veg in wooden crates at a market.

I know social Media always build things up and people and add the same sort of things again and again but it really does seem as if there is a problem getting some goods into this country and this includes some foods.

It doesn’t mean anyway I’m going to start it just means there’s less choice available. For most of us this won’t be an issue, but for those with allergies, eating disorders, or other conditions that affect food choices this could be a big issue!

I wonder how many people will start to grow more of their own food this year as a result.


Who am I?

Now, I could sit here and tell you my name, age, where I live etc… but that wouldn’t tell you who I as a person am.


I am someone who is more than happy to abseil from the roof of a building, yet worries about not knowing the depth of drop of a kerb.

I love to listen to music, but want to be able to hear and understand the words, so I don’t like Opera.

Other people’s company is lovely, but I prefer to enjoy one or two people’s company rather than a party/group of people.

Definitely a major dog lover, I am a huge animal person, but cats aren’t really my favoured kind of pet. I’d rather have a dog, or a Bearded dragon, or a snake. Sugar Gliders fascinate me, but I’m not sure that I’d want one.

Food wise I prefer my meals to be simple in style, and not covered in fancy sauces. Though I do like sweet n sour chicken, and that has a sauce. Snacks, salty quite often, I don’t tend to add salt to food, but do enjoy the occasional salty snack. I am a fairly fussy eater, but I do know what I like.

I believe everyone is of equal value, and no one should suffer due to the greed of others. Each person should be able to afford to eat, keep warm, housed, and clothed to a comfortable, safe, and decent level.

I absolutely encourage everyone who can, to vote. Remember if you are in the UK you will need voter ID for the next chance to vote in May, so find the list of what ID is accepted, and if you don’t have it then apply ASAP for free voter ID before the rush nearer the time starts. Stand up and be counted.

I prefer cold to rain, but my favourite seasons are spring and autumn. The summers are starting to have heatwaves, and winter is just wet, cold and windy. I go out in pretty much any weather, unless it’s not safe for me to do so.

Gardening is a great therapy, very peaceful and I love to see what I’ve planted grow and come to life in front of me, I container garden though as it’s more accessible. Last year as well as flowers, I grew tomatoes, peppers and strawberries.
