Sunday

 Good morning, everyone.  Sorry I'm a bit late; for once in my life I overslept!
It's misty and dull outside but perhaps the sun will break through later on.  Hope so anyway!

Yesterday was nothing like I had planned.  Beth wasn't feeling so great so I said we'd cancel and, I hope, she is coming round for lunch today instead.  So much I said about yesterday applies to today instead which is going to make for a shorter entry!
(did I hear a few cheers?  lol )

I did get into town though, to pick up my meds.  M&S was completely open including clothes, Holland and Barrett was open and the pen street market food stalls were all going great guns.  I was surprised how many people were out and about too.  Not as many as one would expect on a Saturday morning but it wasn't empty by any means.  

I found I was running out of my favourite vegetable stock powder, Marigold, so I put together a short list and, late afternoon, I popped round to Morrisons.  No crowds, no shortages, no gaps in the shelves - I don't know where all this panic buying in going on but it is certainly not in Mid-Essex.

To my delight, Dad has totally taken to Zoom now.  I sent him a link to a 'How to . . .' site after he asked how one starts a Zoom chat and yesterday evening I got an invite from him, just to check he'd got it right.  Well done, Dad.
(He doesn't read this so I've said it to him elsewhere too!)

Today, after a late start, I'm doing very little until lunch time.  After lunch (fingers crossed) it is shelf building and then I'm doing nothing again.  Well, nothing that could be seen as 'work' anyway.  I'm looking forward to the Strictly catch up.  I know who I think should go but you can never tell with Strictly, can you?

I'd better go and get myself sorted out after my oversleep.  See you all tomorrow xx

  2. That's fantastic news about your Dad taking to Zoom ... well done to him. Does this mean he will also be able to stay in contact with you brother and with other family members?

    Friends who have been in town since Thursday are saying that there is no noticeable change to the number of people out and about. It's not like the first lockdown when the town was deserted.

    1. I'm hoping so, Eileen. He's fired off an email to everyone to tell them!

  3. I’m so thrilled your dad has got to grips with zoom, so you now have another way of keeping in touch. These methods of communication are so important just now and being face to face makes things so much easier. I think just his willingness to try it is fantastic.
    There doesn’t appear to be any panic buying here either. X

  4. Even the Strictly Spoiler website is no longer absolutely sure whose out each week as they now have no audience so he doesn't have a reliable "mole" anymore.
    Your Dad is brilliant getting to use techie stuff!
