More measures to combat the virus come out daily at these News Conferences, which I think are conducted very well. I have an order from Tesco coming in the morning and a well-stocked store cupboard so I should be alright for a few weeks to come. I am used to being alone so dont see any great problem there either. The important thing is to stay away from other people, both for one's own sake and for the sake of others.
I have been doing last minute jobs before battening down the hatches. The lady who cleans for me is not coming for the foreseeable future after today. Her husband is seriously ill and worries about catching the virus and we both think it sensible that at present she doesnt come. I live alone so nowhere gets very dirty - I shall clean one room each day which I am sure I can manage. After she had gone this morning I drove to the Medical Centre to stock up on hearing aid batteries and then called at the bank to stock up on a small amount of money (buying on line and not going out much means I shall not need much actual cash). I had intended to go for a walk with Percy after lunch as it has been a lovely day here, but all the dashing about this morning meant that I was too tired to go out this afternoon. So I was forced to watch another episode of Inspector Montelbano (thanks again Tom for putting me on to him).
Looks as though the highlight of my day tomorrow might well be getting the dustbin ready for the bin men on Wednesday morning. I do usually go to a Strugglers meeting at half past ten on the third Tuesday, but am undecided whether to go or not in view of the ban on movement and gatherings. Oh and my Tesco order will arrive between eight and nine in the morning so I shall have to be ready for that. Sounds as though it will be 'all go tomorrow'!
Everything, apart from the wretched virus, is carrying on as normal - Spring is springing, the birds are all nesting now - hopping about with beaks full of bits of this and that - haven't seen any lambs yet but then I haven't been very far from home. Nice day forecast again for tomorrow so Percy and I might have a stroll. Till then...
