Tanks, but no tanks

Thu 14 Jan
Report written by Lucy Hill

Frances & I had been asked to help Mr V move some furniture in his flat to make space for a new armchair that would be arriving soon. Poor old Mr V had only just been discharged from hospital having had a fall, and was feeling quite tired following all this.

We arrived, and Mr V let us in. He thought we were here to measure up and bring his new chair. We explained that we weren’t, and that we had been asked to help with moving his table and old chair to make space for the new one. Mr V, we had been told before the mission, was very particular about how things were done, and he did not want our help to make some space today.

Not quite plane sailing!

Frances tried her best, offering to help move some of the piles of his music manuscripts, or to rearrange the position of the table in the middle of the room. Mr V was quite adamant that if we were to move anything it would cause great confusion, and tanks, but no tanks to our help.

We did have a little chat, and admired Mr V’s war memorabilia - he had quite a collection of model tanks and planes! So we headed off, and hoped that when his friend visits tomorrow she has more success than us at getting his furniture moved safely.

Priori-teas in the right place

Tue 12 Jan
Report written by Frances Collier-Wright

Mrs Y is new to Goodgym and had submitted her list in advance, but when I went to collect cash and bags she was ambivalent about the choice of shop. When I suggested Aldi she was delighted and added a couple of extra items that you can only source there. So off I went to Aldi, cheerful at first but with a nagging concern growing - her chief shopping priority (and the only one she had checked was definitely on the list) was Yorkshire Tea, and I wasn't certain that brand would be available in Aldi. Being from a family of Yorkshire Tea drinkers myself, I knew no other would do, and had resigned myself to a duo shop with a stop at Tesco for the all important item. But, Aldi came through! It had everything Mrs Y needed and, even better, the tea was 120 bags for the price of 80. I'm no mug, I know a good deal when I see one, so without further a brew, I poured myself over to the tills and, steeped in re-leaf, returned to Mrs Y with her 2 bags of much needed supplies.
