Lost & Found During Covid
We have ALL lost and found various things and aspects of our selves during this last 2 years of Covid and we will ALL - NEVER be the same as we were before.
Those assuming life will get back to as it was before - are foolishly naïve while the rest of us know full well, that things will NEVER get back to as they were before.
It may be wishful thinking for many - It may even be a desperate hope or even a desperate NEED for things to return - but globally too much has happened to alter things for years to come and BREXIT is just a part of it.
The Supply chain was destroyed when a monster ship blocked the Suez Canal and the backlog of container ships will take a long time to catch up.
Products in short supply, like silicone chips - because the staff are not digging the mines, to supply the processors to supply the chip making people to supply the car / watch / and all computers and techno things and tens of thousands of factories cannot make their products without the chips and so the supply chain slows to a crawl.
Many people are also stocking up on supplies - wisely so - but it puts a strain on the suppliers now you are buying treble the normal stock - and not just of toilet paper which was never in short supply anyway - but everyday supplies and shelves are empty which is a first for many - and as many more take time off with a cold ( er - not a cold - Covid - which now is no different to a common cold - or so we are told ) and many could be working but choose not to as they still get paid and this disrupts the entire chain of supply and demand as there are too few staff to cope. So we go without.
BUT - We have gained a huge amount as well.
