Let’s look on the bright side of this awful virus.
The good news:
(When I say ‘we’ I am assuming that ‘we’ are all doing the right thing!)
BUT, some not-so-good news:
I keep saying that I won’t go out to shop anymore. It’s not worth the risk.
BUT yesterday morning I donned a pair of disposable gloves and braved the fruit market just after 7am. There was hardly anyone there. I grabbed a trolley and piled in fruit and vegetables. Picking up a rockmelon (remember, they’re no longer ‘cantaloupes’?) one finger of a rubber glove was torn. Luckily, I had made doubly sure of safety and anointed my hands with sanitiser as well as wearing gloves!
Despite the higher than normal prices, I managed to buy a decent amount of fresh food for just over $50.
Home before 8am.
These are strange times indeed.
We must keep ‘doing the right thing’. Somewhere there is a tiny light at the end of this long and gloomy tunnel and, hopefully, when we reach it, we will all have a new appreciation of what is important.
Have I mentioned before that, even before COVID-19, I would never, ever, have gone on one of those horrendous cruise ships?
Keep safe. Keep well. Wash your hands.
