    Housework for me. What I used to be able to do in 2 hours now takes all day cos I have to keep stopping and sitting down. Couldn't have gone anywhere anyway  as even if I could walk to the car, which I can't, I wouldn't be able to drive it. Looking forward to tomorrow though as a very good friend is coming to visit me.

    I’ve done nothing different today. Just waited in for a furniture set to be delivered which I must applaud the lads for as they respected my space and worse masks, cleand surfaces after them and wore PPE.

    You're good at finding those coffee deals @fluffycat. I went to YO! Sushi for the first time, and enjoyed it. It was all well organised and distanced, and town wasn't anywhere near as busy as I'd dreaded. We did go a bit earlier to avoid the post-work rush though.
