Thursday 21st March 2019 – Retail Therapy and First Day of Spring

With the conservatory spring clean complete, I have turned my attentions to a spot of retail therapy. As much as we like to support local shops, even the major chains; when they don’t have what I want in stock, I turn to the internet. Over the past few days, I have ordered a variety of items, a couple which were out of stock in the nearby store and others not available locally. Who to support is a difficult one. If a local store does not have what we want ‘on the shelf’, should we as individuals drive miles and let the exhaust fumes from our cars add to the world’s pollution or is it better to order from home with one delivery van/lorry making multiple deliveries and only emitting (although more than a car) one lot of fumes. Also, is shopping online denying the local workforce jobs or should we look at it from the point of view, it is creating jobs as someone is needed to man a warehouse and another to drive a delivery van. I am not sure there is a perfect scenario.

Monday 25th March 2019 - Vandals

Today’s entry is short but far from sweet! On Friday, between 3.30 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. several cars parked on the High Street were vandalised. I was notified in the early evening, so I could post the incident on Overstrand Life’s Facebook page, but I chose to wait until the morning so that I could photograph the damage. The term ‘keying’ is used, when lines are scored down the side of vehicles and this is what happened to the vehicles involved, one of which was only purchased new a couple of weeks ago. Whoever did this mindless act is up for speculation and although the police were notified, I personally have strong doubts as to whether the culprit(s) will ever be brought to justice and punished.
