Emergency on Planet Earth #12

I WILL WRITE A NUMBER OF EMERGENCY ON PLANET EARTH BLOGS THROUGHOUT THE TORY SPONSORED CORONAVIRUS CRISIS.

What follows is a random collection of thoughts from a human being trapped in 21st Century British society.

Friday 17th April

Today, I have received a letter from Wrexham County Borough Council, offering Covid-19 testing for all personal assistants in the county, who are employed via Direct Payments. I have provided WCBC with the names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses of my staff and we will see how things progress.

This is a tremendously difficult time for everyone. In the past, I have been extremely critical of WCBC Adult Social Care, but I must give credit where it is due and say that I have been very impressed by the department’s response to the Coronavirus crisis. I believe there has been a change in personnel, and it is encouraging to see that vulnerable members of society are receiving the appropriate support under this new regime.

I look forward to a more positive relationship with WCBC in the future.

I am fortunate enough to live in a bungalow with an accessible and attractive garden, attached to my property. I often take it for granted, and during the long winter periods I am guilty of neglecting it. The weather this week has allowed me to spend time in my garden, tidy it up and make the most of some much – needed fresh air.

I have some large blossom trees in my back garden. which are great when they are in blossom: but very annoying when the blossom falls to the ground after a week or two at the most, to cause a white blanket of petals that need sweeping up. I shouldn’t moan, as the fortnight of glorious bloom more than makes up for the mess it leaves.

 

I should also introduce the latest garden gnome of my collection who arrived via mail order this afternoon. I am not sure what to call him. Maybe something like Potty to celebrate the heritage of Stoke City FC, his parent club.
