Not Asda this time but a shopping update.

Went into Sainsbury's yesterday (long story involving daughter's dead car battery, 2 petrol cans for mower and more which I won't bore you all with) but there was no queue (probably since it was a lovely, sunny Bank Holiday and everyone headed to the beaches). Got the few items I wanted and went to a checkout.
Woman at the checkout found hole in bag of sugar so an employee brought a new one (passing very close right behind me to reach it over to till operator). Next was a man with a few items (we were chatting from a distance while waiting) and as he left, and before I could move forward, I felt someone along side of me. Turned around and it was same employee now chatting (very close) to the people waiting behind me. This girls was only about 2 feet away so I looked at her and asked "Do staff not also need to social distance?" She gave me a funny look so I said "You are very close to me at the moment and also were a few minutes ago." She jumped back behind the screen and made another (different) funny face. Luckily she didn't say anything or else I would have reported her!
In better news, last night 2 daughters & 1 partner came to visit last night. We sat outside in car or deck chairs, drank our own coffee, walked about the garden (we've made lots of changes since lockdown started) and had a wonderful evening.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

My sister and I haven't seen each other since the middle of March. However, yesterday, when we were talking on the phone, we both realised that as neither she, my brother in law nor I have really been out or come in to contact with anyone, there is no reason why we can't meet. So sometime this week they are coming to me and we can social distance in the garden! Luckily as well, where we live, there have been no new reported cases for a few days.

You can meet ONE other person from another household, outdoors.

The government scientific advice is that you remain 2m (6ft) apart.

You CANíT visit friends or relatives in their houses or indoors.

Nor can you gather in a larger group with people who are not from your household (apart from a few exceptions, such as funerals).

Higher fines will be imposed for anyone who breaks these rules.

Well Iím sure I can find a loop hole, as certain a government adviser managed to! They will be bringing me shopping, they wonít be coming through the house, we will social distance. As my sister is partially sighted i.e needs assistance, she canít meet anyone on her own and I canít touch her to help her to a seat etc.  ;D

Does she listen to "In Touch", Tuesdays, Radio 4? Part of tonight's programme was about visually-impaired people and social distancing.
I made a very late visit to wee Tesco as I'd run out of milk and bread. I only go there late evening or Sunday afternoon, hoping there are few customers.  Mackerel in tomato sauce is back in stock so I bought 2 tins. The other tinned item on my list wasn't there.

That's in England.

Yes, the situation in Northern Ireland is different-
"Groups of up to six people who do not share a household can meet up outdoors while maintaining social distancing."
