Today, December 2nd, is International #Slavery Abolition Day.

In its classical sense, slavery today is a thing mostly of the past, but let's not forget about today's borderline-slavery cases, such as debt bondage, wage slavery and child labor that still abound around the globe. Those are still serious and must be addressed.

Part of my physio is kneeding bread, here is today's loaf

It's infuriating trying to shop local at times. I went into the local furniture shop today and asked them to order in a specific model of cabinet. Response: "No", I asked if he could check as I wasn't in a major rush and was willing to wait, to which the caring salesman said "No". I then asked if he would even check if it was available, so again he responded "No".

This annoys me as I am keen to but come up against this.

PS this wasn't a young person, it was the shop manager 🙄😤😡

Finally I'm contraption free after the Pico pump was removed from my leg yesterday 🕺🏻🕺🏻🕺🏻
