The day has started off overcast, but seems to be clearing a little and I spy patches of blue sky through the clouds. It’s chilly though. Both of us have had showers and our towels are out on the line as there’s sufficient wind to dry them.
The stew is cooking, and I shall whizz Hubby’s portion so that he can drink it. He has done very well these past few days and managing more solid foods in small doses. It is a strange diet eating all foods that are considered bad for you, but if they can be tolerated, we can progress to ‘better stuff’ later. He’s put on another pound.
I went up to the supermarket today to get some soft supplies in for him, and town was heaving. The shop was packed, nobody giving anyone any space, but at least more masks were being worn. The shelves are interesting, plenty of chocolate, cereal and biscuits, but cleaning liquids, toiletries and kitchen rolls were low today. Their freezers have plenty of pizza and fish, ice cream is OK, though individual lollies, cornettos and frozen desserts are few. Frozen veg is also low. I was going to treat myself to some bacon but couldn’t get to the chiller section as it was choc-a-bloc with people loading their already laden trolleys with fresh meat. Some people seemed to be in a trance as they weaved aimlessly between shelves either side of the aisles. Most of these were actually men, and they didn’t appear to looking at anything, let alone picking something up to purchase. At least the sniffer guy wasn’t there today, and I heard someone talking on his mobile saying that it was good that there was plenty of beer and alcohol available. Each to his own I guess.
Hubby has just taken Maggie out for her second walk. With the cold weather, she is beginning to stiffen up, so we are trying to get her into the habit of using the garden more.
