Hi my names George...

Post by Who2 »

Had to deposit some very old reissued cheques into my Irish Bank, today.
So I had a walk around, looking at what pubs will be up for grabs next year.

This is Grayson's/Claire's front door view:

'Note tai-chi and covid enforcers lazing around..

This is our fire station that Boris shutdown, as I socially try to distance in the queue for our post office.
15883
"The first fire station was at 27 Farringdon Street, replaced on this site at the corner of Farringdon Road and Rosebery Avenue in 1871-1873, and was probably designed by Edward Cresy.
They were also the most militant hence Boris' actions....
Oh! he also had to ride by them every morning as did Jeremy.

Last but not least this sprang up the other day.
15884
The crane opposite The Eagle (which has a sign in the window 30 years 1 March)
"Will the Hotel open before The Eagle opens ? Another quandary.

Back to the block, tomorrow Sainsbury's Islington to spend my 'health jab vouchers
on silly expensive things..... 8)

Ps: Why do MP's live in Islington ? it's a sh*thole..

Office for National Statistics & Oxford University use me as a guinea pig taking blood and swabs every week.
Every week they send me the normal letter showing my negative result.
This week showed a positive result, 'Oh my God! now what ?
Reread the letter stating that "I had tested positive for antibodies.... 'la whaala! I nearly had another heart attack.
nb: After having had the AZ jab...

So all good there then, except upon presenting the food voucher at Sainsbury's till last Saturday,
the lady looked at me blankly and stated "this is for Selfridges lol.... 8)

Ps: £50 quid for blood £25 quid for swabs.

@Who2

I’m not sure if they’re still open but, if you hurry, you might get a bargain.

A little black cocktail dress would suit you.

Selfridges online Food Hall, totally ridiculous, all crap and all expensive.
Ended up with this crappy item, one also had to take into account one's delivery fee.

This arrived today it came in a huge box, wrapped up in tons of crepe tissue paper.
15885

"What is it ? You may well ask....
'It's a ruddy expensive stainless steel olive oil dispenser, 'no home should be without one.
Selfridges online and only £20 quid plus delivery, get one before the rush.. 8)

Ps: "I should have known not to shop at a place that, sells fridges....

That’s the sort of gadget they’d confiscate if you tried to bring it to Egypt.

Looks like a sex toy :lol:

They’d be looking for the batteries.
