New normal.........

Another good book finished, I have returned all the books to the library, and have decided to read from my Ipad, not my favorite way, I do love the feel of a book in my hands. I have about 6 books here to read, so I can still enjoy reading.
We had a lovely weekend away, in Somerset, we stayed with my brother, and I spent a day with my sister. On Sunday we all went out to lunch, to a small village called Shurton, it was great to have time together, we are not sure when we will next visit, but it will be months away.
Daughter was in our village when we got home, so plenty of cuddles with George and Will, Will helped tidy the garden, our lawn was pink with petals from the Magnolia tree, I don't think we are going to have many blooms left. Just for a while some normal time. 
We popped to our local Lidl's  for some shopping, not as bad as we feared, we got most of what we needed, but not much fresh raw meats, no eggs or tin foods and the frozen section was almost empty. It was busy but not manic, our local Iceland has announced it will have an Pensioner shopping time on Wednesdays, this will allow us to get milk and eggs.
We have watched the government's announcement today, which will now be happening everyday and  I'm worried. So many family and friends in the huge at risk group, we have friends in Spain and Canary islands all on lock down, a doctor in Australia who is front line.
I think it's time to say, don't take risks, stay safe..................


  1. I am glad you got to spend some time with loved ones. It is a worry having so many in the family that are at risk, especially when we cannot do anything about it except look after ourselves. Stay safe and take care, Mxx

  2. I seem to keep having problems leaving comments on your posts. I'm glad you managed to get to see your family, who knows when this will all be over and you get to see them again. Daniel and Jasmine have both been asked to work from home now, which is good as Jasmine is in a high risk group. They've had to cancel their flights to Colorado to see Jasmine's family though. Mick's company are playing it by ear day by dad. I doubt they'll be asking Eleanor to work from home with her working in a hospital laboratory though.

  3. Glad you had a good time away. I've decided that I much prefer a book to hold too, I think it was why I was struggling with reading. This 'thing' is scary, the supermarket by where i work has been rammed both mornings so far this week, people are not just buying a few things either, they have trolly's full! Aldi is now restricting to 4 of any one item, 1 if it's toilet roll and two if it's nappies / wipes. Take care

  4. I am glad you got to spend time with your family. We need to be around the ones we love at times like this.

    I will be leaving Kris's early tomorrow and then both Harvey and I will be up here again on the 27th to take Kris to his specialist appointment.

    God bless.

  5. Lovely you were able to have some time with family before we all had to take so much extra care.
