It's Monday, so I won't need them until next Sunday. SBBM, right?

Just back from Tesco the loo roll shelf was almost empty and the hand sanitiser shelf completely empty. There was a sign, "limited to 5 per person" ,ho the fuck needs 5 hand sanitisers all at once?!

Madness.
In Fulbourn Tesco last night, there was one forlorn multipack of toilet paper left (not that we needed any), big gaps in the tinned food aisles and virtually no pasta/rice left (which doesn't bother me as I don't particularly like pasta). Lots of fruit and veg still available.

We are now in escalated Covid19 delay phase at work. No hospital visits by central team staff (or hospital team visits to central team offices). No face to face meetings. Central team staff to work from home as much as possible.

Tesco Update 10/02/2020 12:15

Loo roll plentiful, Hand Wash premium brand only, Bleach zero.

A hitherto unpublished symptom appears to cause the elderly to randomly stop and point at empty shelves, thus blocking the aisles.

Waitrose still bereft, but Tesco Express had stock. Only premium options, so I chose one laced with coconut oil.

Which is good, obviously, because I'm on a ketogenic diet.

All 3 stores we have been into have loads of toilet tissue, hand wash is hard to find, we are running out, not panic buying.

Our boiler is on the fritz. We have no heating or hot water. It's OK for Jon - he's in a nice warm office at the hospital. I'm stuck in a cold house, with a grumpy dog, waiting for the gas engineer to arrive.

The good news is that the gas engineer is Perry... a veritable Adonis.
