We are now digging down into our collection of VHS tapes, which should keep us more than busy.
Online delivery and curbside pickup (we call it ‘click and collect’) are both cancelled here. You can only get grocery delivery if you apply for a special exemption and are either elderly, have a disability or are in quarantine. Which is a good idea, but depressing that it had to get to this point...if youre that stressed you should be doing curbside pickup or something not wandering through the store.
Went to the supermarket yesterday for a top up shop. Our last was about two weeks ago. Then, there was still a little rice, not much flour, no toilet paper or tissues.
Now, most of the fresh fruit & veg were gone. All of the eggs were gone. Milk apart from home brand was all gone. All the bread, all the rice, all the flour and sugar, all the oil, most of the cheese, most of the butter, all of the cold meat (except the vegan stuff of course!)
I was able to grab a few bags of chips and chocolate. That should keep me going for a bit.
For the time being, I'm doing take-out far more than I used to. Supporting the local restaurants.
Really? I hadn't seen that - I live in NJ and follow NYC news pretty closely, as I worked there for 30 years.
