LIFE but not as I know it

Well I bit the bullet and went shopping yesterday, 3 days before my 3 week deadline but  I didn't want to get caught up in any Easter rush, especially as the shops are shut Sunday.  As I pulled up in Asda carpark at 2pm I could see the queue snaking around the building. I grabbed a trolley from a carpark bay and joined the end, positioning myself 2 meters away from the person in front.

A  women and young boy joined shortly after. I became very conscious of him coughing and fidgeting behind me, at no point did he cover his mouth, nor did she ask him to. I realise it's not always possible to shop alone but I ran out of sympathy when the father got out of his  car and walked towards us, he was coughing too and spitting, he then handed  some money to the women before returning to his car. Why put the child in further danger if he's already poorly. She knew I was uncomfortable and said loudly 'poor daddy has given you his chest infection'. Hopefully we'll be better soon.

I kept moving further forward, I was wearing sun glasses and a snood over my nose and mouth but I  couldn't wait to be allowed into shop and away from them. Following the arrows I managed to find most things and I even picked up some YS mince for £1.12. I'm an in and out person anyway and I'm even quicker now!

Things have certainly changed since the pandemic was announced and the subsequent lockdown which made it even more surreal.  I know one thing for sure I'll be sticking to my shopping once every 2-3 weeks even when things get back to 'normal'. I felt very uncomfortable and once I got home everything was wiped over, I stripped off placing my clothes in the wash, showered and changed. Extreme....maybe but I'm not taking chances, I'm asthmatic and  the stats for the over 60's death speak for themselves!

Later, hubby asked me why I hadn't managed to pick something up.......I think the glare I gave him said it all. I explained that he hasn't ventured into any public place for over a month and therefore has no idea  how alien and scary it feels.

To our surprise our only granddaughter sent us a lovely picture and letter yesterday through the post, saying she was missing us. She enclosed a stamp for us to reply so we didn't need to go to the shop, thereby keeping safe.  I made wrote a letter and placed it in a card I made before  popping it in the post, I know she's really looking forward to opening her first letter.
The tape I've ordered for the NHS scrubs bags I'm making has gone missing in the post. So I've raised a complaint through Ebay and low and behold 5 more 'not received' feedbacks have popped up. So I'll be claiming my money back. A lady on the For Love Of Scrubs page gave me details of  someone who has stock and I contacted them. Fingers crossed it comes Saturday,  then I can get the bags to Colchester hospital on Sunday via my  nurse friend.

I'm having a break from sewing this weekend, I aim to get out in the garden and do some crafting. Murphys law, the weather is brilliant, unlike the  usual Easter break and we can't go anywhere!! What's your plans for the weekend? Bye for now. TX

    2. I had my first outbreaks and I was tested back for both HSV-1 and 
      HSV-2. Both my husband and I tested positive for HSV-1. Last year I found 
      out my husband was cheating, so I decided to do a retest on all STDs 
      including HSV-1 and HSV-2, only difference is that this time I went to a 
      different clinic. Anyway I tested positive for HSV-1 which I knew I had but 
      surprisingly HSV-2 as well, I was so upset and got divorced with my 
      husband. 3 months ago a friend of mine recommended me to an African Herbal 
      doctor DR.Edidia. I explained everything that I have been passing through 
      all these years to him and he encouraged me that I will be cured 
      completely!. I ordered for his herbal exploit/medicine and used it 
      accordingly to his direction and within short period of using the herbal 
      medicine I was cured completely from my HSV-1 and HSV-2. I'm so relieved to 
      say that I've not had even one outbreak ever since again and I was also 
      tested Negative by my doctor. I'm feeling so great! from within and I truly 
      endorse this product, it really works. His herbal medicine is very active 
      and effective, and other 
      can of cure for HERPES, DIABETES, CANCER, HEPATITIS, HPV,HIV,COPD,KIDNEY FAILURE,PCOS and other diseases..... You can 
      contact doctor edidia on email: dredidiaherbalhome@gmail.com and

  4. I'm impressed with your three weekly shopping trips. I feel like I'm winning if mine lasts a week.
    The card your granddaughter sent you is so sweet, I wouldn't mind being on that island right now :) and how very thoughtful to enclose a stamp for you to reply.
    This weekend will probably involve more gardening, baking and our daily walks. X

    1. Jules, you live in such beautiful countryside it would be rude not to enjoy the walks around you. Staying away from the shops has made me realise I shop unnecessarily sometimes. Making things stretch certainly makes you think about food and meal planning.

  5. Not a pleasant experience is it. I am glad I am all stocked up for a few weeks, I just don't want to be out there, and people are just acting so ignorant aren't they.

  6. It was nice of your GrandDaughter to send you that card and for you to respond but can I kindly ask all your readers to please not post items that hopefully you will be able to personally give to them in a few weeks time. My son is a Postman, the Post Office have no regard for Postmen - there's no PPE for them, they're being forced to do their rounds and then being bullied to do overtime to deliver rounds for the Post men who have gone down with the virus. His Manager gave them a pep talk yesterday, about how the Post Office has got to stay 'profitable' - my Son told him what at the price of us dying - the Manager was nearly lynched and had to lock himself in his office. So if people could kindly remember that your Postmen are out there doing their best, the less that is posted, the less he and all the others have to deliver, the safer he is and the safer my Grandchildren are - thank you - sorry for waffling xx

  7. It's nice that the Royal Mail is helping to keep us all in touch with each other, thank goodness for the postie. Sometimes he's the only other person I speak to apart from Alan if I'm outside when he calls. (He leaves the mail on the gate post if he sees me so we don't get close.)

    1. At least the posties can keep as safe distance. The public have been told how to respond to delivery drivers, carers and others that approach your property. I opened the door just as the postie arrived the other day. I immediately stood right back in my hall and asked him to just put it on the step and thanked him for all he is doing.

  9. I went to Costco yesterday and had to line up for 45 minutes but everyone was very conscious of distancing etc. It's great when you get in the store because they let so few in at once. I was all done and back in the vehicle in 15 minutes. When I went to the grocery store I found that was far more stressful as there were a lot more people and always the few who seem to be oblivious to the present situation!!

    1. Yes there's always those few who think rules are for other people. I'm so glad I went when I did as the queues tiday were apparently horrendous.

  10. There are always those that don't follow the rules. Here stores keep saying it is not a time for browsing, to get what you need and get out as soon as possible. They also say that only one person per household should do the shopping. I know sometimes that is not possible, but really letting your children run like wild creatures through the toy section is not even close to following what we are asked to do.

    God bless.

    1. I know its not always possible to leave children at home but the father was there and in the carpark. Some people have no sense at all.

  11. I am cross on your behalf regarding that mother and child. Why was the child even with her mother and not in the car if she KNOWS it is making people uncomfortable. And she's ASSUMING it was a chest infection. I had a 'cold' (it could have just been a cold but might not have been) from the first week of lockdown and when I lost my sense of smell and taste I made sure to not go to anywhere or any shops for 2 weeks just in case it WAS the lurgy even though I wasn't coughing or a temperature.
    I had a cross incident the other day (and I've got to say, it's bloomin' MEN in my experience who are oblivious to the rules).
    I had a brief trip into Londis to grab a few things (there were 3 women inside and we were all very sensible about maintaining our distance, warning each other when we were wanting to go backwards, waiting politely), I then went for my walk across the fields holding all my shopoing. As I walked home, my husband CBC called me and asked if could get some sultanas for making Hot cross buns so I headed back via Londis. Because my 2 experiences there have been good (1st time no one was in there and then the last time was fine) This time there were all men in there (at various times, not all at once)- they seemed to have no clue about maintaining distance, waiting politely or warning you when they wanted to go somewhere. I had to beat a hasty retreat into a shelf a couple of times when a man just barged his way round the corner (I said, "Could you give me some warning please!?" and then queueing, the man behind me kept getting closer. I looked pointedly at the tape marks on the floor. Once I'd paid, I ended up stuck less than a metre away from two men as I finished at the till and a man was standing at the entrance whilst his child got something from the toy dispenser and the man behind me pushed his way to the till. I was stuck about 50cm away from the till because I physically coouldn' get out because of man and his child getting a toy from the dispenser machine. Finally dispenser man and child moved and 2 more men barged their way into the shop meaning I still couldn't get away from man at the till! Stupid men!
    I have to say, I agree about shopping being a bit of a traumatising experience. I hope you manage to stay safe!
