Was trying to work out when is a good time to try the shops in this "new normal". Went for around 7pm, if I spotted people queuing to go in I'd about. But was fine. Still gaps but gathered most of what was after, even a bottle of handwash!
I think shoppers are splitting into two groups now, those aware of the surroundings and doing the best they can to distance, and those who are oblivious 🤨
I got the car mot’d yesterday before they made an exemption, I had it done at the village garage which is pretty much a 1 man band.
He always does my car and is good. He was saying he will struggle to cover the rent for the garage premises even with the help. Which will be a disaster if he goes! He also went round to help someone who’s car was not starting, they were saying new starter motor but it was just a new battery which is significantly cheaper but they could not afford to replace it. So people are on the fine line..
They are if you had my wife's strict diet restrictions.
There is not an awful lot of 'nice' things she can eat but plain sponge/madeira cake is one.
Our wee village community shop is being brilliant, they know who needs support and while we are managing fine they came up with skimmed milk, white bread, eggs and bananas for my mrs yesterday.
I agree, but we know the egg shortage has nothing to do with people flooding out to make cakes don't we
For what it's worth, we had half a doz eggs in the house yesterday so my not working daughter whos a self employed hairdresser made a good cake. We dont normally eat cake, and dont very often eat eggs either. However the cake she made will last the best part of a week with sensible slices so the 3 eggs will have gone to good use and their life and use has been stretched out. We now have 3 eggs in the house, but so be it we will get another half doz whenever we can, if we can.
