England Warrington Tesco

25 May 2016

Cold and damp

An early visit to a Tescos in Warrington

It is now cold and damp, no warmer than 10 degrees today, and then it started raining, just enough to keep everything permanently damp. This is England 90% of the time.
I again woke up before 5 and went for a walk, this is my only time to take photos and whatever, because my work days are very long with long commutes.
Todays commute wasnt supposed to be as long, but I got lost once due to the useless Garmin GPS, and then on the way home I spent over an hour in queues waiting to get on or off motorways. The best part is when you are stuck on a roundabout in no mans land and need to cross 4 lanes of roundabout.
Apparently roundabouts are an engineering miracle that result in no traffic congestion.

I did however get to see a few different towns today, including Widnes, St Helens, Wigan and Bury, from this I have gathered that Warrington where I am staying is no better or worse than anywhere else, everything looks pretty much the same, the centre of each town has the same 3 or 4 mega supermarkets, and a heap of stores for poor people.
Tomorrow I am thankfully working closer to where I am staying, so possibly more photos of actual things then.

I went for a 5AM walk into a junk yard full of scary retired parade floats. I retreated fast when I saw a few caravans that looked like people lived in them dotted around the junkyard.

This evening when returning home I turned on BBC1. The state of British entertainment is hilariously bad.
Here we have a woman dancing with her dog with a broom to the Benny Hill theme.
Every channel has something similar. Or they have a voice over telling you what happened on what you just saw and what might happen after the ads. Someone really commentates repeates of sitcoms and encourages you to tweet in what you think about a characters hair do or outfit, then they read the tweets out live between ads and the show being back on.
Your other option is interviewing a family about the issue of the day, generally the exit from the European Union currently. Why the particular familiy is chosen is a mystery, but then you get the hosts of BBC news debating what a random family said about the impact of Polish people on the NHS (Medicare) for the entire rest of the day.
