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
