--------I"m in isolation now for over a month, i go to the supermarket once a week. My friend visits me, and we sit in the back garden at social distances. -------My fridge as magnets to remind me of my travels, to over 47 countries in Europe. I did take a ferry across to North Africa to Ceuta.------------

-----At the Supermarket, customers wait outside at 2m distances till called to enter- the floor is marked out at 2m areas, one person at a time. At the Cashout the assistant is behind a perspex screen. Near the supermarket is a Fish & Chip takeaway, closed at first, but now i noticed a hand written sign saying, order from outside the front door and please wait at 2m distance from other people. Strange times. STAY SAFE.

I think because of the Virus lockdown here in the UK there are more tidy gardens. There seems to be a lot of dog walkers, do you think they are borrowing dogs. I have noticed that the local store of B & Q have opened with regulations like the supermarkets. Distancing outside and in store. B & Q are a hardware store, D.i , Y. -------------------------------------- The council have changed the way they work on Rubbish collect, { Waste or Trash,} The green wheely bin for garden rubbish is suspended, the reason being is the men in the recycling lorry, are normally close together in the drivers cab, and this is too close for virus reasons. So now the Garden rubbish men will help the recycling van. Pity,Green wheely bin for garden rubbish.

Hi Alec, thank you for sharing your experiences. I'm glad your fish and chips are still available. I like the photo of your garden and the chairs. We are not as in to separating people in queues here but I noticed today they are doing it in Marks and Spencers here. Plus you need to be temperature checked now to get in.

All the best,

Irene

I have been interesting in reading other peoples reactions around the world. I mentioned on another blog that this pandemic seems to have made our world a little smaller as we all share this one common moment. We are staying in as much as possible here in Baltimore, Md. We have a small wine bar not far from our house that is open to purchase carry home bottles of wine and food from their kitchen. We call in advance and they bring our order out to our car.
