 :)  thanks.

PS  ... Coles and other online groceries options in Australia have announced they are stopping all online ordering due to over-use of their system, practical issues etc.  Real world outcomes,  causing vulnerable people to miss out on their groceries etc unless they go to their local supermarkets between 7 am and 8 am.  When only the aged with ID can go through the supermarket....

That is a new development today. According to this they will still deliver to the vulnerable and isolated:

... though I imagine many who fit into that category may not have the facilities or the ability to order online.   :(

When are you back from France, Mike? Let us know and you can start taking bookings.
Supposedly the end of the month, Jen, but we're maybe going to come home this week instead. They've closed all the cafes and restaurants here, so it's not as much fun as it was - and if (when?) we get the virus we'd rather be at home then here. Just  sorting out a vet's appointment to get the dog's passport stamped.

Note the apostrophe! I said my next door neighbour's (dog) not my next door neighbours  ;D Although I would be quite happy to walk them as well if requested :D

Years ago there were on sale dog leads that were rigid,with a collar attached.
It really looked as if you had an invisible dog on a lead!
Teenagers were walking all over Bury with them.
Now if I can find mine ,and am stopped and pulled in by the boys in blue (or black )I will swear blind again that only intelligent people can see dogs of the particular breed I am walking.( canít think of a breed off hand ).
Should ask great grandson ,they are moving to a new Grumbelow,you know a house with no upstairs.
Well the sun is shining, we have just had delicious fish and chips and are off to the cemetery to feed the birds soon.
 Perhaps the dog I will claim is on the lead is a Gruffalo.

Oh dear, now you've started something - panic and bulk buying of dogs so that over 70s can go out.  ;D ;D
