Fun with hydrangeas

Not a good start to the week. Between the England match on Saturday; John Redwood's blathering on about replacing public library staff with volunteers; the latest Honours List (not so much as an OBE between us); the rain pouring in at Catty Library again; and half the staff being on diets this is not a happy ship.

No doubt we can look to our fearless leaders to provide a morale shift.
"Fecking hell," says Sybil.

Speaking of hydrangeas; did you ever see those heavenly deep blue ones atWindemere as you walked up from Bowness? Or are you too young?

Is Robert Green a volunteer then?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Pat: only ever in photos, sadly.

Macy: I've nothing against volunteers, used properly. Using them to replace paid workers for to pretend to provide services on the cheap isn't using them properly.

And thus was a Sibylline prophecy uttered.

Madame DeF: indeed. I suspect you are kindred spirits.
