“We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!”

21st century

April 21, 2020

Here we are twenty years in to the 21st century, and I just bartered four toilet rolls for a bag of flour. Who’d have guessed it’d be like this, eh?

Peedeel has been in self-quarantine since last Monday. He is poorly but recovering. And he is happy that while most people bulk purchased toilet rolls, he bulk purchased brandy!

Sadly the girls, both totally symptomless, have had to self-isolate also. We are here together but apart, and so alone – I am, it seems, the poisoned apple in paradise.

Cheers for now, boys & girls
