I have had a day off today and have spent most of it trying to sort medication for parents and partner. Lots of queuing outside pharmacies and GP reception with lots of space in between myself and the next person. Currently allowing no more than 3 inside at a time. These are very sensible precautions and quite frankly I preferred waiting outside, although glad it wasn’t raining ☔
But people are so rude. Comments like I phoned my order through this morning why isn’t it ready were common. Those of us who’s scripts went in days ago waited patiently. The staff were rushed off their feet and still smiling and being polite 👼
I am back at work on Sunday and still trying to get my parents’ prescription! Hopefully I will be able to unwind a little with my knitting. I have got a new book Knitting with your leftovers by Fiona Goble which I am quite excited about 😊
The supermarket shelves are not as full as they usually are and the poor staff are rushed off their feet trying to keep the shelves full. We are not going to panic buy. In the event of self-isolation we will be rooting round at the back of the cupboards and in the depths of the freezer. Perhaps some of those tins that have been there forever will finally get eaten. So we may have some dodgy meals but we won’t starve…
On a brighter note I have started my walking regime again. It feels so good to get some fresh air and see the Spring flowers 🌷🌷🌷 and the early blossoms 🌞
Spring has sprung. The garden is a mess. We may run out of food but I have plenty of yarn in the stash to see me through any possible isolation.
My partner becomes a grandpa at the beginning of April. His daughter is expecting a little girl – I went to the Baby Shower last week. I have been working on a little cardi for her which I have finally finished this morning 😊
So this month I will be using up some of my baby yarn stash so as to have some bits and pieces to offer on the big day ☆☆☆
Maybe something in just one colour next so as I don’t have all of those ends to sew in…
I dragged this out yesterday afternoon, not because I am particularly fond of it or the old wood inside it but if it floats away over the fence it will be a piece of single-use plastic further down the river!
The river breached the flood defences the other night and neighbours round the corner have been evacuated!
I am cheering myself up by packing my gift for the baby shower on Saturday ♡♡♡
Apparently there could be another 10 days of this ☔☔☔
