I am certainly going out much less than usual. I have plenty of reading material, I have my computer and I have Percy - surely walking round the block alone (apart from Percy) and just saying hello to folk I meet is as good as self isolation - I certainly hope so. My store cupboard is fairly full and I can, presumably, keep having Tesco Home Delivery Service to my back door once a week. So if they do bring in Self Isolation for those above a certain age then it will be possible. And in the event of us actually getting some warm, sunny weather I can even sit out in the back garden (only sat out once last year - it was never warm enough).
We are all four going out to our usual lunch today - but for how much longer? I shall be sure to wash my hands after climbing the stairs holding on to the metal handrail. A far as we know there are no cases up here yet (in spite of the fact that I go to lunch on the edge of the largest army garrison in Western Europe) - although there are supposedly these hidden cases, so who knows?
Salmon on spinach with a Hollandaise sauce I think today with lovely veggies and roast potatoes and parsnips. Eleven am now - off for a shower - may be back later in the day if there is anything to report.
Yes, delicious lunch as usual and for me followed by cheese and biscuits with celery, grapes and apple slices. Finally a cup of tea as the four of us sat in the bar. Far fewer people there than usual today - the coronavirus is beginning to bite up here now I think. I feel sad for the people who own the restaurant where we had lunch - lovely people hope they will be able to withstand the trials and tribulations of the next few months.
