We feel lucky.
Lucky to be retired. Lucky to have a pension. Lucky to have no mortgage to pay. Most of all though, lucky to be well at this moment in time.
We potentially had our last joint walk with a friend. The cafe we had thought about eating in was small so we weren’t sure what to do, try eat out or go home. It had already closed so that solved the problem.
On the way home, planning on heating and eating a pizza from the freezer, we drove past a huge and empty restaurant. It normally serves 100 and again we wondered if we should risk it. In the hour we were there, eating a beautiful soup, just 4 more people came in. We all chose to sit at least 15’ away from each other.
If we are going to be shut in soon, we took the risk, copiously washing and cleaning our hands. We have to shop tomorrow so again, will have to venture out and be careful.
DB had a letter from the doctor today informing him he will no longer be allowed to pick prescriptions up from the surgery. He nominated me to do so otherwise they would have to do it. Also, all online appointments have been removed. We now have to phone up. Hopefully we won’t require any.
The times they are a changing.
