It's a chemist, which runs a chain of retail outlets and some franchise outlets in big supermarkets. They have an online link to see if your nearest is affected by the delay, and it brings up a list of 420 outlets, as far south as Lincoln.

My local outlet, 5 km away, is in a branch of Sainsbury's which is open 7 days a week. But I don't know what days their van drivers work.

Glory. Chimney swept. Much easier with the right rods rather than drain rods though even then the most difficult bit was getting the baffle plates of the wood stove back in properly. This time it only took about six goes. - About half the number it takes the professional when he does it so I can get a certificate.

Grumble: our postmen are allowed to go on strike, per immediately. So that means I can kiss that Xiaomi Mi 7 smart band goodbye for now.

The USA railroad unions might decide to go on strike before the holidays causing major disruptions to just about anything that moves in and around the country, including gas and oil.

Last time they really got close to that POTUS made it clear they could not strike. I'd expect the same, especially as he likes to ride.

Ah, the ancient Chinese curse coined by a British official. There is scant evidence that it is either ancient or Chinese. https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/may-you-live-in-interesting-times.html
