Slightly late

 I've enjoyed one of those glorious Winter bugs the past couple of days so have been in bed with a bucket, but moving swiftly on this particular one seems to rush in and out on the tide so am already feeling a lot better. Now we have hit December may I unapologetically share this new topper from my early morning trawl round Tesco this morning. This one is promoting the community foodbank. I know the existence of such things in a country such as ours riles some folk up, but I don't think they're going to disappear anytime soon and people should not have to go without sustenance whatever the rights or wrongs of the situation. 



Have a great weekend🎄

Industrialization of our food means we have to address community sharing in different ways.

  2. Simply and wonderfully put: no one should have to go hungry, no matter what.

  3. Well said! My sister-in-law volunteers to serve at a food bank -- and she now buys packages of adult diapers for an elderly care-giver who broke into tears when she found that first donated bag half full. Who could have objections to this lessening the burden of a wife caring for a disabled husband?! * Another volunteer slips extra cans of tuna fish into the allotment of another senior whose sole friend is a street cat...
