Still Far From "Normal"

We went into Paddock Wood with a couple of bags of stuff to donate to charity shops. The first I called at was closed. The second was open but had been so overwhelmed with donations it wasn't accepting any more until Thursday. The third was open but not accepting donations on the premises; instead I was directed round the back- where a couple of helpers were sorting through donations and stowing them away in a lock-up garage;  "Put them at the end of the line" said the  one in charge when I offered her my bags. It was a very long line.
