Bubble Trouble?

Thought it might be a topic during this latest lockdown, to see how anyone and everyone to express how,and if they are coping with a "social bubble"! Do you have one? Are people finding it hard to actually have a social bubble with family or friends or just a  lack of a bubble?

    We are doing as we did in lockdown1, keeping ourselves to ourselves, going shopping for food once a week and that's it.
    It was far far easier first time round as the weather was great and we spent our time in the garden, harder this time due to the weather and shorter days, only 23 more days to go though.

    I'm in a support bubble with my daughter and grandson, which i'm extrmely happy about. I don't have any friends where i live and these are the only 2 people i ever see, even in normal times.

    I had a support bubble the first lockdown which was my boyfriend who lived local, however we are not together now so I have no bubble as my family dont live near me and have their own lives to lead and they support my mum

    I have my son who is great help but he is isolating currently due to confirmed case in his class, so I cant have him do my small errands and finding it hard to get online shopping slot

    Oh well sure we will get by

    @woodbine Iceland dont deliver to my postcode there is only Asda and Sainsburys, going t look again later today

    I can get out myself if my son helps me out but I dont normally go on my own due to my limited vision I wouldnt want to knock anyone down on my scooter

    I'm sorry to hear you aren't together with your boyfriend anymore :(  Big squeezy hugs from me.  I hope you are doing okay.

    I'm in a bubble with my household (me and partner) and my mum who lives alone.  I haven't seen her in a while because she was awaiting a test which has today come back negative, so that's good news as I've had to leave her meals/food on her back step!

    My son & daughter-in-law live only a few houses away & are in my social bubble as I live alone. My son has decided that, as he works in a small, yet busy food retailer, neither of them will come into my home, rather visit me in the garden during this 2nd lockdown. He feels that if I got Covid-19 it could only have come from him, as I don't go anywhere. It's hard, but I know he's looking after me....
