Every 3 months or so I go to a local market and buy cheese for the next 3-months. I'd got down to my last few pieces of cheese and went there today, expecting either restrictions, heaving crowds or that it would be closed altogether. The market was as normal, the cheese man was delighted to see me and happy to take my £33, but it was very poorly attended. I even bought 'Er indoors some flowers.

I then went to a very large Sainsbury's, which was no busier than normal, many shelves were empty, but I got the dozen or so items that I wanted.


Flowers, cheese and supermarket shopping Martin?  :o

I'm hoping I will be too - Mr Josey has just gone out to do Post Office, chemist AND vegetables; if all is achieved it will be a record.

             The Wasteland

The French are sealing the borders
No supplies are being let through
Weíve drunk the dregs of Entente Cordiale
Now itís ďSauve qui peutĒ
The Army will be given new powers
To secure our goods from their shores
Meeting opposition with a Gallic shrug
In the manner of Jacques Delors
The TA Reserve will be mobilised
Our allotments will need defenders
(One Captain Mainwaring and his platoon
Are considered the prime contenders)
Keep calm! Donít panic! Stupid boy!
None of us are any the wiser
While under new powers the MOD
Has monopolised hand sanitiser
Bakeries will come under siege
For the smell of freshly baked buns
See us standing two metres apart
Opposed by riot shields and guns
The jam butty mines of Lancashire
Will be reopened in indecent haste
And there will be a national upsurge
In demand for potted shrimp paste
So the trawlers will gamely put out to sea
Then stay there till they think itís all over
Hoping to find some sanity restored
Beyond The White Cliffs of Dover

Roger

(Love all of "Despair's" poems - or pomes)
We tried to register for grocery deliveries the other day, but after spending ages reading the terms and conditions, still couldn't even register, let alone obtain a slot!
So we drove to the small nearby town we often shop at, walked into the market hall - just as usual, got what we wanted, came home. Also popped into a local supermarket, to top up essential wine supplies.
The rest of the time we've been online, or gardening, or housecleaning or doing odd jobs that we've always intended to get around to.... I'm even eyeing the back porch, it could do with a couple of coats of paint..... can I get that on line?

Sainsburys are supposed to be releasing more delivery slots on Monday -- everyone will be on line at midnight waiting to hopefully book one!

Has anyone had a dental appointment cancelled by their practice over the last few days? I am just wondering as I have one coming up.

(Yes I realise I am thinking about all the shallow, normal life stuff when there are far, far more serious issues affecting people. Sorry, but it crossed my mind as dentists work really closely to a patient.)

I was and still am a big Small Faces fan - surely it was 'Lazy Sunday Afternoon'?

Do you throw these little quiz questions into the middle of all threads? What a good idea!!

Yes Suey, I hope people will still patronise the shops who have helped them, my butcher had no meat at all today whist there was long queues at the market stall, I heard some say that a lot of fruit and veg would be wasted, cant hoard fruit and veg, a lot of it can't be frozen

My local electrical shop had completely sold out if freezers days ago, what on earth is wrong with people?

Thanks Roger for entertaining us with your wit and humour, I love to see your expressive offerings  8)

I went to B ***s chemist today...they were queuing outside to get in, the notice on the door advised entry for two people only at a time  ??? I wasn't desperate as I only needed a new pair of nail clippers, I doubt there will be a rush on them as by the time the worst is over, many people's nails will be bitten down to the quick  ;D ;D
