If you can get a grocery delivery slot, watch out for those substitutions.  My daughter ordered paracetamol two weeks ago and they brought sanitary towels as an alternative. ???   The mind boggles if she had been a he.

Boris has decreed we are allowed out as from this afternoon, yippee!

Can you imagine how busy the solicitors will be in 5 months time?, murder or divorce after being locked in together and not allowed out for 4 months, only joking

Perhaps they've decided there's a shortage of solicitors as well as of doctors etc.

It really makes me feel like falling asleep till about November time and wake up in time for my birthday, what worries me also is, a lot of people who suffer from depression will be suffering more if they have to be cooped up for so long

I think we have to avoid large gatherings the latest from Boris

Thank goodness for the camaraderie  on Rootschat

On the radio this morning there were quite a few people who were saying that as much as they loved their other half, 4 months locked up with them would drive them mad.

Went shopping for two things this morning at 10:00 hrs when Costco opened. Absolutely nuts. They were queing to get out. One person at the door checking trolleys as the shoppers left.
Did manage to get Spaghetti, Macaroni and Lasagne elsewhere.
We are all destined either to get a lot fatter or a lot slimmer.
How many will consume the stuff they have bought, more quickly, just because they know it it there in their cupboards.
Ahh, the human mind.

One last thought. If they start rationing food, which they are already talking about, how will those who are shopping for the weak and infirm, manage to purchase goods for them?
(No, I cannot sell you that. You purchased the same items yesterday. You are hoarding.)
