No plans to go out this weekend. Everyone is being told to distance themselves from crowds as much as possible.
I was told by my boss that I will be working from home for the next few months. I think it will get more difficult as time goes on but at least I am one of the lucky ones and still have a job.
Supper is a stew with steamed vegetables.
We have had beautiful, sunny Spring weather for the last few days and it looks like continuing into next week. The good weather has encouraged everything in my garden to grow so it is a good opportunity to start preparing for the summer. My lawns need raked and cutting, the ground cleared of last yearís growth, the larger bushes and roses need pruning, some of the plants lifted and split, and weeds removed from the earth.
While I was rummaging around in the attic yesterday, I found my Great Grandfather and Grandfatherís gardening books and seed catalogues. I am going to go through them with my mum this weekend, as she has some wonderful stories about their gardens and plant nursery.
It is Motherís Day on Sunday but we have nothing special planned other than spending the day together.
I spent this morning (and yesterday) grocery shopping. I took my mum to our local supermarket, as it had an hour set aside for elderly and vulnerable people to shop, but the shelves were empty. There were plenty of Easter Eggs and boxes of chocolates though! Apparently, they are not considered a necessity! I dropped her back at her house and visited a couple of our local shops, only to find the same thing. When I was standing talking with a group of people at the checkout (at an appropriate distance LOL), one man whispered Ďif you visit the shop around the corner, they have toilet paper, only one packet of four per customer thoughí. We have got to the point where sources of toilet paper is a great secret
I hope everyone has a good weekend and stays safe and well.
