I caught a bit of the news this morning, amid all the flurry regarding exam results, Algorithms, school opening or not and the wearing of masks, some Universities are worried about a further outbreak. One person was concerned that the uni's would become treatment centers for sick students.
It's a bit late in the day to open that can of worms.
These issues should have been addressed much sooner, after all this is the 8th month of C-19.
I am ready for a winter outbreak, my "corner shop" is well stocked. It's in the corner of the craft room and extra to my pantry.
No, I have not been emptying the shelves!
No, I do not regard myself as greedy.
And No, I am not bragging.
Each week I have bought a few extra items. Food stuff, toiletries, laundry and cleaning supplies.
By the beginning of November I aim to only need fresh foods for
5-6 months. I have always kept a well stocked house and this year have just pushed that by a little.
If we do have a surge then I will not need a weekly delivery, so I will be able to cancel alternate weeks freeing that spot for somebody else.
Equally if the weather is really nasty I will not need to worry, and will be in a position to help another household out.
I was snowed in for a week, many years ago, and fed 3 other houses till the roads were opened.
We had a little shopping trip this morning, Michael needed an orbital sander. His had been worked well beyond it,s use by and was all but dead.
I also picked up a Lidl £1.50 fruit and veg box, it was a bargain. asparagus (omelette with some Stilton tomorrow), grapes, bananas, plums, tomatoes, lettuce and carrots.
I estimate that 90% of shoppers were not wearing face covers and were huddled in groups rather than standing back and waiting for a moment.
We were in and out in record time and back home for a late breakfast, bacon baguette with brown sauce. swoon.
Now we are off outside, with Herbie as foreman, to do a bit more in the garden.
