I would really like to know what's happening with testing kits and PPE for front line staff like my son who will be in a red zone nursing Covid-19 patients tomorrow. I find myself getting more and more angry with the people who are running the show. They'd jump to it quick enough if it was their loved one on the front line.

The doctor who's regularly on This Morning (can't remember her name or exactly what she is) said today that they're having distribution problems. Doesn't help I know, just hope they soon get it sorted out.

Sadly, the Isle of Man announced it's first covid-19 death today :(

3 patients have been hospitalised; 1 has been released; 1 is still there.
There have been 65 cases, so far.

Antacid tablets seem to be non-existent. My usual Ranitidine have disappeared. We tried to obtain some Zantac, even trying to buy them instead of on script. They've disappeared too.
Phoned the surgery again and I now have a script for something else - something "sole" but not Lansprasole (?) because they negate the effect of something else I'm on.

  I haven't been able to get Ranitidine on prescription here for months. Nothing to do with the current problems.

I know this is trivial, but....

Two of my cats have a special cat food for sensitive tums. Anything else goes through them like a dose of salts. Online orders are taking 2 - 3 weeks. My vet nurse daughter has obtained some for us - but she’s in Devon and we’re in Bristol. Don’t know whether to go and get it (we would of course allow the two metre gap between us) or risk DHL.

I struggled to get the last lot, however it arrived eventually. No chance this time!.

Back to garden centres, the gov, has defined “home” as including garden, outbuildings and greenhouses,  if shops selling items for the home can remain open, then they should be included.


What better therapy could  there be than to be out on a nice warm day, planting for the future summer days and the harvest to come.

The cafe at my local garden centre in Ellerker has turned into a grocery shop, so anything from groceries to gardening stuff can be ordered by phone, email & facebook and delivered, though they haven't had time to arrange online ordering,
