What a kerfuffle, Tesco delivery man couldn’t find us today, when he did the gate was broken. After an initial consultation by Nigel (who tends the gates and other aspects of the Pioneer Centre) it was realised that the heat yesterday had had an impact on the workings of the gate. It had got so excited that it kept opening and closing, it wouldn’t stop, the workings getting dryer and dryer, not surprisingly.
It is working again now, thanks to Nigel, after being turned off for a while. Similar things happen in the extreme cold, it gets stuck. The gates are like humans.
Tesco delivery got through eventually with the prosecco for our first BBQ of the year. Yesterday I had put going to Aldi on my bucket list, I would love to be able to walk about a supermarket so great and get the wonderful bargains, but after my enjoyable exchanges with Nigel and Tesco delivery, I am content, and the Aldi trip is less of a priority before I die.
