    I have ordered some chocolate online though it's not what I'd usually buy and apparently won't arrive till May! I stayed up till midnight last night to see if I could get a delivery slot at three different supermarkets - no joy. And @Fairygodmother I know people are happy to help, I keep reminding myself of that and that when this isn't happening I do things to help locally, I just find it hard sometimes, as I'm sure we all do.

    Happy Birthday @ArtemisBow - enjoy the cake!! Glad you got a lie in as well.

    Considering some baking and cooking later. I'm trying to do different things on Saturdays even given life's all a bit Groundhog Day at the moment and I'd normally get some different food whilst out on a walk, so I'd be kind of re-creating that routine.

    Also resigned to basal being up for the duration - not even enthusiastic gardening and house cleaning is working as well for me as walking three/four times a day does. Unless I go up and down step ladders. I have a weird body...

    Actually, I think it's more my body and especially my blood sugars prefer my walking spread out across the day rather than just one mandated piece of exercise a day.

    QUESTION.

    if on a normal work day you would wear your clothes from say 7am to 7pm, is it ok to wear the same boxers for 1 hr for 12 days when dressing up to go out for the daily walk?

    Sounds perfectly reasonable. On day 13 you can then turn them inside out and start another 12 day cycle. Maybe just maybe we’ll be out of lockdown in the space of two pairs of boxers.
