State of the post-office

I looked through my The Plague tag and thought I would add these photos to my personal record. We go here most days with stuff being sent from Shop on the Borderlands. I miss the friendly Gunnislake post-office with Jack the dog and windows that let in the day-light, though we're starting to know the staff here a little, and it is undeniably convenient that they are open such long hours. Even if the postoffice bit is closed, we can still drop off parcels. It's a bit of a pity that it's not dog friendly, or else I could walk here with the dogs and the parcels. At least, I could on light-parcel days and those are not very common now. Anyway.

Things are starting to feel relatively normal again, though that's partly because masks and distancing have become normal and I think something like 85% of people here are now vaccinated. There are still random shortages of.. everything. I bought new tyres today, having suddenly realised that three of my car's tyres were looking very worn indeed, and fortunately I did not need four tyres, because three was All They Had.  I didn't notice any major problems with petrol during the petrol crises recently, but that's probably because of the spectacular quantity of Oil Refineries.  I took this photo of the oil refineries tonight:
