Tuesday is generally the day for me to buy groceries and do any shopping that needs to be done. Today I went in search of a garden kneeler but was unable to find one that didn’t feel like it would tip over if I used it to help me get up off the ground. I think I will be donating the ground-level garden-beds to son to care for, as I don’t fancy crawling over the lawn to find something to pull myself up with!

There seemed to be an inordinate amount of traffic on the road, the sort of volume that used to occur around Christmas or on a Friday prior to a long weekend. So it was no surprise to come upon a recent accident, where a driver had obviously tried his luck when coming out of a side street and had ended up collecting another car.
I went to a new (to me) supermarket this time, intrigued to see what they stocked as it can vary widely between stores, even between those in the same group.
This one seemed to stock a lot of gourmet type foods, so perhaps their customer base is more up-market than the normal stores I visit!

The weather now is so different to what we had yesterday. Today is overcast and it has tried to rain a couple of times.
We gave Mayo the Rat a proper burial last night, after grand-daughter returned from school. She picked some white flowers to place on his grave (in the lawn) as he was a white rat. Very appropriate, I thought.

No post tomorrow as I have a distance to drive to attend a funeral – and I think I have written enough depressing stuff the last few days anyway.
