A busy day doing things

We got started quite early. I listened to the Radio 4 programme about St Paul, but it was not at all deserving of the promotion it had received. Then it was off to the bank to attempt to transfer some money from New Zealand to New Ferry. Let's see how we get on. While there, Viv bought some more bird nuts. After that, to Birkenhead, to buy some shoes. Viv also bought some bits and pieces for cards and similar, and is obviously all set for invitations. On to Bromborough, where we bought (among other things) another red stool so that we have more places to sit when playing the piano or having breakfast.
The electrician visited, and we now have light in the toilet but not in the morning room, which needs acompletely new fluorescent tube or possibly even fitting. Let's see what the next days bring.

Now to the pointless bit.

I heard on the news this morning that Iran has removed some seals from their nuclear installation and that this has caused an international uproar. However, other questions need to be asked about this. Why did the inspectors decide to put seals there in the first place? Wouldn't it have been better to guard the installation with German Shepherds or Rottweilers or something? And it seems inhumane to have used seals, as it's a long way from the sea and I'm sure that they wouldn't like it in the heat there. Still, I suppose the inspectors know what they're doing.
