meanwhile in the real world

I know I spend a lot of attention on fiction
but back in the real
merely voting for Brexit has done such damage to the value of the pound
that the news is saying many leading food brands
are asking for a twelve percent price increase
and that's actually fairly moderate compared to what the currency is doing.
And that's before we even leave and have to cope with whatever the new financial constraints within the EU will be.

And I can do absolutely nothing about this.

So I just keep hoping to win the lottery
and stay in fiction land.
