I don’t believe it, this morning one of my AFO fasteners has snapped. It’s not so much the inconvenience of making it difficult to walk but more the disappointment. My custom made AFOs are not cheap, equivalent to the price paid for, say a C60 Sapphire. This is the second time this has happened and it’s down to poor materials used.

Backers on a certain Kickstarter watch launched in early 2020 complaining that their watch hasn’t been delivered yet and asking for refunds, complaining or threatening legal action. Had they been asleep when they backed the campaign? Do they still now not realise that global manufacturing has been on a gap year and the small orders are at the end of the queue? Surely they must know that they don’t get consumer protection, and if the project folds then they get nothing. :censored: ](*,)

A couple of members here also backed the same watch, so they may know what’s going on already.

Suppliers who say they will be in touch and then don't, this can be for anything. Its just so frustrating!

Caravan club sites which close large proportions of shower and toilet facilities in the name of covid.

National trust places closing cafes, and generally making it impossible to buy a drink without a ridiculously long queue, whatever the weather.

I work with morons. Summer break is only two days away, and it still cannot get here soon enough.

Bought an extra hot coffee so it lasted me longer on my drive to Crewe. Missed my cake hole and scalded my chest. Dropped the brew on the floor in my train cab and wasted it. Absolutely perfect.

What on earth are the BBC doing. Day 1 of Wimbledon , and they aren't showing Djokovic's match live from the start, especially as he is playing a brit. What a joke. They wouldn't do this with Federer or Nadal.

Why oh why has the country forgotten how to drive! I witnessed several near misses and some hilarious stupidity on a North to South drive today. People were bad, but not so many people and so bad, before lockdown! Madness!
