The latest developments in government decision-making around COVID-19 is evidently having an effect on more than physical health.
This week, the Welsh government decided to ban people from buying ‘non-essential items’ in shops.
And just who decides which items are essential and non-essential you may ask?

Mrs. Bloggs was shocked when she went to replace her five-year-old daughter’s coat, which the child had foolishly lost, to be told she could not buy a replacement as this was a ‘non-essential’ item. …

The photographer lowered her camera:
“She’s a real glutton for social attention.”
Please save the date 26th October 2020 1–2 pm EST cos we are having a parteeeee!
It’s the birthday of one of our favourite MuddyUm writers.

(And also because I’m not available on the 27th.)
The thing is, our birthday girl is a tiny bit shy and a little retiring, but she loves SURPRISES.
That’s why when I read her story warning friends NOT to throw her a surprise birthday party, I knew immediately she meant the opposite! …
