Life isn't getting any cheaper

Goodmorning everybody!

Gorgeaous day we had yesterday.! So in the morning I did some tasks I gave myself( I always feel more to it when its nice weather) and then Jan and I grabbed a sandwich, sitting in the garden and sat there quiet doing some cross words.
Then i guess the sun made me a bit sleepy, cause I took a little nap, wonderful!
Jan had no shift, so he took a little walk when I was taking my nap.
In the evening we watched some tv and some of the news always is able to astonish me LOL.
Beginning this year the government had the tremendous idea of giving free hand to the costs of denstist care. Till then it was a bit controlled by the government, and though not really cheap, it was payable. But now they wanted to be "free-economy", hoping that the free marketcompetition would lead to better prices and so on. Well, what everybody already expected happened: it didn;t get any cheaper, in general prices for tooth care went up by almost 7%. But some things had a raise of 50%!!!.
Now government wants to bring it back to the "old situation"again. LOL!
This minister of health care has really some great ideas(ironically speking!!). Her policy resulted only in a health care more expensive and cutting out some things out of the basic package, nobody is happy with it.
And everything is getting more expensive and sometimes I wonder why, cause for several things it does;t seem necessary, but oh what a good excuses the general crisis can be!!!!
And slowly I have the feeling that this "free market prices competition is only asking more wor of us, simple people. Yeah, you can try to compare prices, e.g. for energy, than you will have to go on internet, read all the packages of several energy suppliers and you must figure out which one is cheaper. Well, that is to be done, but then you get the change of supplier. They pretend it to be easy-peasy, but in practice it isn;t always so. But if you want to do comparison for several things, energy, water, health care, insurance of all kind, morgage etc. you will have serious work on it which takes a lot of time and I believe that at the end, it all comes to the same level.
And there are still a lot of people, mostly elderly, senior citizens, who don;t use internet, so impossible for them to sort it out. And even with folders, it's almost impossible to sort it all out.
If I would do this, I think I would really feel like a hopping frog. I hate it.!!
And conclusion: no matter where you go and what you do, all prices are going up. Same with groceries, all getting more expensive. No, it is not fun.

Okay, I got that off my chest let's move on to some "Lighter stuff"ROFL>
Hoorray, Jan has work this evening again, and already for Saturday and Sunday evening. I hope they will find him something for tomorrow and Friday too.
So this evening I will be all alone again, snif. No, I am just jocking. I don;t mind it too much, an evening is passing by quick enough. And I can watch a soccer game tonight, still for the European Championship, this is already the semi-finale.
So when he will leave at about 17.30 am, I think I will spend some time at the computer and then install myself on the couch to watch the game. I hope Jan will have a not too bad schedule, so that he can be home again before midnight(has to work till 23.00 am).

Sometimes I almost wonder if I still have cats LOL! In summertime they like to spend a lot of time outdoors. Well, Brodski is a lot of time in the garden but Dikkie likes to stroll in the nieghbouring gardens. And around 17.00 they are most of the time together in the garden and when I open the kitchendoor to it, they hobble into the kitchen for something to eat. And then disappear again.
It happens though that also Dikkie stays most of the time in the garden and when Jan and/or I are there, he comes to us, and seems to tell us about his adventures ROFL. My God, he can meow  in all kind of ways!

Hmmm, long enough blogpost I think, better go on to a gift from Arlene, come great slusters she made with the "Belive in Fairy Magic kit. Enjoy them!

And my kit is a light one in color, with some splashing accents in a very bright blue, or even turquoise. Named it "There was a Time". Now time for me, to have another coffee then get dressed and do something around here LOL! Have a wonderful day.

I agree about everything costing so much more now. We don't ever seem to get more for our money. Ever wonder how come these really smart folks who run for office and get elected are so stupid once they get in office? It's mind baffling. As for your cats, they are regular little wanderers. I am always amazed at how animals can wander, yet always find their way home. I'll be leaving work soon. You have a great day. Hugs, Edna B.

So happy Jan is able to work again. Times ARE hard these days with prices going up all around us.I know how you feel.
The weather has been nice here the last few days.Almost TOO hot.KWIM?
Christy's cat is strictly an indoors cat.She only goes out if she is on a leash and someone is watching her the whole time. She is like a scared rabbit when she gets out there accidentally by herself.:)
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely kit with me. I LOVE the pretty birds and the gorgeous blues with the browns.:)
Enjoy your soccer game!!!:)
