Looks like the UK will be going into a lockdown, albeit regional, makes it more palatable for the populous that way.
Anyway, house on the market, selling all my shit, need to be gone from this place forever as it is no longer fit for purpose in my opinion.

I really do not have any plans to return, infact I would rather top myself than have to live here a moment longer than required, it really is a fucking most horrible place to be.

Not really a plan, but an observation maybe not up to att’s Standard, but..... Up until recently my van delivery jobs had been taking me all over to places in the lower half of the UK l didn’t mind going; London, Chelmsford, Southampton, Plymouth, Chard, Truro, Carnarvon, Llandrindod, Shrewsbury, Leeds? lOl and the pleasant countryside on my way there. But over the last week l’ve been places I’d rather forget. No style, no character, no apparent history or culture now either. Fortunately l only have to drop off pre-packed consumer goods to a trade goods inward loading door, scribble a recipients name and leave. ;)

Apologies if you live in such a place, but it just struck me seeing in some towns and cities a sea of thousands of houses hemmed in by a mess of motorways, next to a mess of trade and retail sheds feeding the occupants. Every town or suburb with it’s own drive through Costas and McDonald’s next to a Cineworld, and if you’ve bought too much shit there are also ‘self store’ sheds to store all the shit you no longer have room for in your tiny hutch. As one comedian likes to put it; “at least there’s somewhere for all these mothers......to go!”. lOl
If you are clever and rich enough you can even go to one of the builders trade sheds to buy the bricks to build a home extension (if there is any room) so that you can self store more shit at home. Many new town areas feature new homes packed in like sardines all hemmed in by local feeder roads with hedges or fences that make them look more like prison compounds than pleasant housing estates. Sometimes l forget what town l am actually circumnavigating. They all look like they came out of a factory pack! What a life!? :roll:

I’m sure there are lots of nice people living in those massed hutches, and talking to people wherever l go can reassure me that there is life there, but what a world of shit we have made? Millions of people going home to their compounds with a TV dinner and a flat screen, or will that be a curved screen soon, so that they can immerse themselves and make believe they are really living? LOCKDOWN? We were already there!

I guess l am just showing my age!? This is not the world l grew up in. :old:

Aw shucks! I was enjoying a bit of dystopian fantasy. lOl

The popular fascination with such sci-fi pessimism is actually a useful stress relieving tool for the anxieties of modern life........or so l read. ;) Then we can go forth and do something more creative...........like make more sci-fi movies about dystopian futures! lOl
