Today while out we received the replacement tree plantation for the diorama which means the Chinese jobs can fill a corner in the rubbish bin, so much utter trash comes from there its just like when Hong Kong started to export in their boom years a generation back then it all went expensive, don't believe me look at the prices of model buses in HK now.
I'm just about to download the footage from todays outing and I still hope to do a truck shoot on Thursday morning. Then we have a meal in The Crown our local, yes the very much refurbished local from which I was banned from for many decades after the encumbance of a harridan whose dog growled and worse - it has been so refreshing to have good beer, nice food and a friendly local back again for locals and visitors alike.
Our own Christmas plans have taken a dive as our long time friend Sue won't be stopping over anywhere just a day trip out to visit her relations, we are thinking of hacking our Christmas meat in half and freezing it at least it won't be wasted. This just reflects the situation for millions of families but still I see the youngsters haven't got their head around it merely getting a £10k fine, hundreds in a single house in Leicester, I think it should be a custodial sentence as the resulting infections could kill people and Leicester has already suffered from restrictions more than most UK cities. The queues at Dover docks are now over three thousand lorries and growing, that probably beats the departure from Truckfest!
Shots from Cannock this morning.
