Let the bodies pile high #Sundayramble

Regular readers will know that I share my thought with you on a Sunday morning and just ramble. What’s on my mind this week? My health mainly. I’m getting on now and have the usual aches and pains as well as long-term medical problems. I requested some medication a couple of weeks ago and despite answering questions from a nosey receptionist the medication wasn’t sent. I tried calling them this week and I was 9th in the queue which meant at least a 2 hour wait hanging on. I gave up.

Rising prices and other worries. #Financefriday

As we go into Autumn, we see inflation at 3.5% in the UK and a recovery that is much slower than expected. Investment income is likely to be lower than the rate of inflation so we won’t be getting a real return on our investments. Some stocks look cheap but they are only worth buying if those companies can actually recover from their covid related problems and get back to normal. Many people are still shunning the entertainment sector and staying home. I expect to see rising prices in pubs and the entire leisure sector over the coming months.

How to enjoy taking pictures. #photography

Whether you take pictures with you phone just for a record of your life or you buy a DSLR and become a photographer, you can get some enjoyment out of it. You can wander around recording what is there, looking for interesting shots and maybe even inspiring others. I recently saw a photograph, I think it may have been taken in Downing street. It was of a room and someone had left a Henry vacuum cleaner in the corner of the room. My vacuum was hopeless so I did a bit of research into the Henry vacuum and then a advert came up on Facebook with that same vacuum cleaner on special offer. What a coincidence! I enjoy taking pictures so I might take a picture of my new vacuum cleaner today. That will set a pictorial record of this day in my life.

Is it safe to go to events now? #Sundayramble

If you’re new to my blog, I share my thoughts with you on a Sunday morning. Well, my website is working again and so I’m pleased about that! It’s quite a clean design but I’m not 100% happy with it. I wish I could use the empty space at the sides of the text. Anyway, the weather here in the Black Country is unsettled and we could get showers today. I might venture out with my camera. I’ve hardly taken any pictures this year. I’ve had constant problems with the pandemic keeping me away from events. Anyway, is it safe to go to events now?

Keep the faith #financefriday

In times of trouble some investors sell and buy into gold or something less risky and others keep the faith and hold waiting for the economy to recover. It  is difficult for small investors to invest in gold and property but these days bullion dealers do sell one gram gold bars and at certain times they are a good investment. The price has been dropping for some time and now might be a good time to buy. I think the price could go a little lower, however.

Blogging and photography #ramble

I’ve been struggling to get this website the way it used to be before it was hacked! Anyway, I’ll share my thoughts with you, as I usually do on Sunday, even though it’s only Thursday! Tomorrow, I’ll write a finance post although not much is happening in the finance world except for a rights issue by Easyjet! I had to use a different theme for my website so it looks quite different and I have to keep checking the mobile version in case there are errors there too. This is a blogging and photography site so I try for a suitable theme.
