    I think I must also be turning into a cat. At this rate the lockdown will need to last at least 2 years for me to do everything I thought I would be able to do while not working.

    Sorry to hear about Popeye, such a strain on you and him. Could you order a supersoaker on Amazon and blast water at them maybe, or hook up a hose if you have an outside tap. Cats do not like water unless in their bowl lol.
    Mr Fuzz has changed the times of his visits and giving me the run around. He turns up for breakfast late, came back lunchtime but I only give him seed twice morning and evening and not much, he must gave a small tum. But its now 6pm and no sign of him. He does his unique run down the garden and goes through the tunnel in the bank that the foxes used to use at night. I think his wife might be in the adjoining garden where there is ground cover so we now call his route “the tunnel of love”. Its really strange that he arrived just before lockdown and he has added another dimension to our days and he is very funny. Long live Mr Fuzz!

    I think this thread is like toilet paper and hand sanitizer -- the most popular item on the board, which had no idea it would ever be expected to keep up with the demand for these posts.

    I'm the same, brought all the stuff in, how many bags do they think we need, one bag had one article inside. Sanitized every piece of food that was either in tins or plastic containers. But what do you do about fresh veg? I have just been rinsing with water and then been keeping them in quarantine for a few days. Managed to get eggs at my click and collect, actually had plenty but because I could see that the eggs were coming up as "sorry this item in unavailable" so many times, I thought get some while I can, then googled about freezing them. Can be done, not sure I would want to though. I only either eat eggs for breakfast or Greek yoghurt, usually bought out of Lidl, the brand I purchased from Asda leaves a lot to be desired.

    Still thankful I managed to get a delivery slot though.

    Y'all have reminded me of one of my mother's favorite books, Gift From the Sea, by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. She wrote it while vacationing on Captiva Island, off the coast of Florida, about 1955. I know we're not at the beach right now -- I wish we were! :) -- but the idea of taking some time to settle into a different rhythm reminded me of this book. She wrote:

    “The Beach is not the place to work; to read, write or think…The books remain unread, the pencils break their points, and the pads rest smooth and unblemished as the cloudless sky. No reading, no writing, no thoughts even – not at first.”

    “And then, some morning in the second week, the mind wakes, comes to life again. Not in a city sense—no—but beach-wise. It begins to drift, to play, to turn over in gentle careless rolls like those lazy waves on the beach. One never knows what chance treasures these easy unconscious rollers may toss up, on the smooth white sand of the conscious mind; what perfectly rounded stone, what rare shell from the ocean floor."

    “Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.”

    Actually, this is exactly what this feels like at the moment. Life has taken on a completely different rhythm and it will definitely take sometime to settle into it.

    Sorry to post so late at night, but having heard the news about Boris the beast, my thoughts are if he croaks it, then we as a country are left in the hands of short term, self serving expense fiddling politicians. I am not a political person, but Boris the Beast as I call him has played straight so far. I hope he pulls through.

    Good morning/evening folks, a 5.9 on the dice reflects a late lucky dip into pantry and discovering the extra pack of hot cross buns I'd scavenged from Tesco, only had one but took all my meagre willpower not to have two.
    Have a lovely day all, stay safe.

    Good Morning and a 6 for me today. Oh how often I wished for that score at the throw of a dice, but now! :banghead:

    Daughter collecting Mrs MCs meds from chemist today, feeling guilty in allowing her to convince us she should do it.

    Hugs for those still feeling unwell or in a roll of care or worrying about friends or family.

    Make the most of your day, time is a gift to be used responsibly and with care and marvelling at Spring all around us is no bad way to use time.
