Has anyone heard from Martin?  He's not been on since Tuesday which is unusual.

Possibly, - as the weather has been so good, - everyone, (who can) is spending as much time as possible outside?

Has anyone seen any articles about why bread is so difficult to get , apart from the previous panic buying? BBC news did an article on flour this morning but I didn't hear them say, there's a shortage of flour so there's a shortage of bread.

When all this started, flour was as difficult to find as toilet rolls!
And my local store (Tesco) were limiting people to 1 bag of flour per person!

I wanted SR flour to make my usual Easter Biscuits, and was running out of plain flour.
So I had to make 2 trips ;D

Bread also seemed to be in short supply, but I didn't need any then.

I subsequently got a sliced loaf (thick, wholemeal!), a baguette (wholemeal, to go with cheese for supper), crumpets and muffins (for breakfast).

And, of course I mean toasting muffins! ;D
The other, American, sort should really be called cup cakes? ;)


P.S. It might be sunny, but it's darned cold out there! Only 8C.

When I saw those pics and the videos, Jennifer, I was open mouthed. That's not the London that I am used to. It brings home what has happened.
