I tried it out as an occasionally-healthy vegetarian. I saved 2 pounds and 15 pence.
It's a start. I could have splashed out a bit more on the snack. I
had trouble finding a vegetarian main meal thingy over 2 pounds and 40 pence. They
must think that vegetarians are cheap.
Why does my computer not like my Arcade Fire CD? It has no right to
censor my music.
Thank you for being my gran.
I'll miss you.

The DCA plans to be the first government department to introduce
regional pay across the country. This measure has been brought in to
address recruitment and retention issues. There are five bands: Red --
Pay Range 1 Inner London, Orange -- Pay Range 2 Outer London, Yellow --
Pay Range 3 Hotspots, Green -- Pay Range 4 National + Pay Range and
Blue -- Pay Range 5 National. The DCA does not plan to bring its pay
into line with the average pay of the Civil Service. The department
has yet to explain what data it used to devise this map (presumably
recruitment and retention figures featured highly). Hotspots in the
north include Manchester, Liverpool, Birkenhead, Bootle and Salford.
Most major cities fall into the national plus range. Cambridge is in
the same range as Leeds and Nottingham. If you work in Leeds, you'll
earn more than those who work in York.
Their heads are still falling off. I have had to drastically reduce
the length of their stems to try to save them. They're supposed to
cheer me up, not depress me. I shall stick to small heads in future
and stay well clear of these cabbages (thanks for the identification
swamprose) on stalks. The jug's still good to look at.
I shall try not to blog anymore tulips for a while. Maybe I'll go find some cats.
British tulips, grown in Lincolnshire. Their heads are so big that a
couple snapped off their stems.
I'm sure there are things that I was meant to do today.
