Fuel? No panic.

"Don't panic," said our Gordon, "plenty of fuel for everyone, only one in ten garages will be affected, no need to worry, it'll be all-right, folks."
What a stupid thing to say. Anyone with half a brain would immediately realise that anything he says means the opposite. Hence the scenes of chaos at my local Sainsbury this afternoon with queues of cars waiting to grab any fuel going and queues of shoppers trying to get out of the car park as a result.

Hello! I still stop by occasionally to read your entries.
I'm happily allotmenteering and blogging about it!
Take care and have a good weekend. Flighty xx

Our fuel gauge is flashing, hope we don't have to travel far for some diesel this morning!

Welcome back, Flighty.
Paul, this morning Sainsbury's was completely dry but I got fuel with no problem at all at a local garage. Weird!
