I did give great consideration to what I was going to buy and to my surprise Tesco was almost empty people wise!! There wasn't much meat or bread but a delivery was due soon and there was toilet roll. Vegetables are more important to me than meat. But now I have a dog I have to consider him.
2 loaves bread
2 x 6pts semi skimmed milk
2 x 1ltr UHT skimmed milk
1 x 15 mixed weight eggs
1 bag carrots
1 bag onions
1 tray salad tomatoes
1 large cauliflower
1 white cabbage
2 bags oranges
1 bag dried puppy food
1 box bran flakes
1 turkey leg (Bertie)
I purchased the UHT as there was no fresh skimmed. The cabbage is versatile, I can cook it, make coleslaw etc. The cauliflower can have a cheese
I've even put the cauliflower leaves in the bottom of the steamer ready for dinner with the florets and butternut squash on top. I kept some seeds from the tomatoes and squash ready to plant next week.
Hubby is under strict instructions not to help himself to food willy nilly as meals will need planning. The things I bought will enable us to get through the next 3 weeks without having to do any more shopping. I'm actually convinced the only thing I may need is milk. But as cereal is being alternated with toast to eek out the milk, I may not have to.
I noted that Boris left it until after the shops were shut to make his address to the nation otherwise I think there would have been a mass stampede to stock up again. There has been reports of shopping delivery sites crashing since he advocated their use!
My friend has just texted me to say she was told at 10:30 last night not to bother going to work. She is a parts delivery driver. At 8:15 this morning she was told get yourself to work or you'll find you wont be paid as we have to hear officially.....WHAT! Is Boris not official????She said nothing looks like its changed at all!
Things have definitely changed near me. It's so much quieter and it's like stepping back in time with hardly any traffic.
My family WhatsApp every morning and we try to include something we are grateful for during this frightening time.
Yesterday the youngest daughter said she was grateful to her hubby as he had done some much needed DIY. I was grateful for technology despite moaning about it in the past.
- I can see my children when I speak to them
- I can get books and audio from the library without leaving home
- I can play scrabble with my friends who are miles away.
What are you grateful for? Bye for now. Tx
PS: I loved the meme that literally arrived seconds after the broadcast.
Boris head in hands " Right you ****ing lot, you can't be trusted, so now you're GROUNDED"
