Covid and Non-essential items in Wales

Well, I think they have lost the plot completely in Wales!

You can buy alcohol ( but the pubs have to kick everyone out at 10pm,) yet you can't buy a hairdryer or clothes....Huh?

How on earth is buying a saucepan (non -essential item) going to affect covid? I see hordes of secret spies being employed to peer into your trolley as you try to get your shopping done. You will be fined. Is this a new way to squeeze money out of Joe public?

Make ridiculous rules and fine people who don't know which end is up anymore.

On the subject of chocolate, I got a free bar in my delivery this week - Tony's Chocolonely - Caramel Sea Salt - it is the most delicious chocolate I have ever tasted! Too good to share as well - it's fairtrade too 🙂

Did you watch the Andrew Marr show this morning Bridget? The Health Minister (I think) was suggesting it was to help local shops??? And Andrew said - how will that help? - it will drive people to purchase on Amazon - you wonder if there is any joined-up thinking sometimes! Enjoy this soggy weekend - Sally 🙂

Nice if the real motive was to keep us all safe and healthy, we all know something has to be done, and sacrifices have to be made, but who comes up with all this, Amason must be loving it lol, And yet to see and thought for what all this will do to peoples Mental health, Wales as in Scotland seem's more about political grandstanding 🙁

Sigh! The wrong people are in power Sally, landed here from planet DOH! :-O
What I object to, is the hordes of underpaid people policing us, people who have no proper training will make snap decisions as to what is essential or not.
Happy Hippie has it spot on, chocolate is an essential, maybe I will hide mine in between the broccoli and bread.

George Orwells thought police and now supermarket hairdryer police. I wonder sometimes if this isn't yet another whimsical social experiment?

Andrew Marr is asking the questions we would all like an answer to. Is there too much control of the population under the covid umbrella.
The GREAT RESET harnessing the 4th INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION is upon us and we won't like it.

Take the red pill Happy Hippie. The rabbit hole goes deeper than just shopping restrictions. 😉
