I can hardly keep my eyes open today.........................
I don't have to work, which is good. My food order arrived, and the delivery guy didn't practice social distancing which surprised me. But the sun was shining, so I suppose I'll be OK - and it was a short encounter [I'm being ironic]. The food arrived - a really huge veg box (it was listed as 'small'), and the bulk items which looked very big when they arrived - 3kg of red lentils, 3kg prunes, 6 cartons of oat milk, 1kg each of mixed nuts, cashews, oats, and a big catering pack of Cornish tea bags 1,110 bags. I'm not used to bulk-buying, so it was quite shocking! It also left me with three wooden crates and a big cardboard tray which I had to get rid of. I've put them all in the recycling and the rubbish skips, so hope I won't have upset anyone!
I saw two of my neighbours sitting having a chin-wag - they weren't social distancing either. Some of them have been waiting to receive a box of supplies from the Government - and asked if that was what I had received.
But at least I have food to keep me going for a couple of months if necessary! All shelf-stable dry goods, so no frozen/chilled things to worry about.
One of the houses opposite mine now has a teddy bear in their window (and a knitted pirate), and another house on the other side (where I know there are children) has pictures of rainbows in their window.
For some reason I just want to sleep today - perhaps I have Covid-19 without the cough or temperature?!
I did phone a friend this morning - and chatted for an hour. Her daughter knows FIVE people who have Covid-19 (untested).
Today, knitting has been my go-to relaxation - knitting and listening to the radio.
