Shopping this morning was pleasant for a change. No queue outside Lidl at 08:15, plus almost empty inside. Within half an hour, we were at Morrison’s, similar there as well. In both shops, I only saw one other person wearing a mask!
By 09:10 we were home and getting everything put away.
We are going to sort out the spare pantry and boxes under the bed pantry in the next few days. If this has taught us anything, it is to be even more prepared! Who knew toilet rolls and elastic would be in such demand, not me.
Once the pantry is topped up, and a list of those items made, I shall begin topping up and increasing my under the bed pantry. Brexit is looming and as it is no longer in the papers, goodness knows what agreements (or not), are taking place.
Prices have certainly risen over these last few weeks. Loose tea has increased by 35p a packet, tinned fruit from 80p to £1 a tin, pilchards for Ruby from £1 to £1:20 etc. My shopping bills have risen so building up spares will happen all through this year.
That Brexit box (or two), kept us going over the first few weeks of lockdown so I am pleased about that.
