A quick note to ask you all how you are coping, and hoping those of you who live alone have a relative or neighbour nearby to bring in your groceries. Have any of you tried using the OAP hour at the supermarkets to get your supplies? If you buy milk, choose "filtered" which has a "use by" date of at least three weeks later. Much better than the normal which probably only last up to a week even in a fridge. Did you also know you can freeze milk? I buy a 2pt bottle for emergency and freeze it, making sure it is fully thawed before use. Before the lockdown, I was able to get my hair permed and cut, so hopefully it will last a while. While the weather has been like a spring day, we have tried to do any outdoor jobs, such as mowing the lawn, cleaning the patio and windows, weeding the garden. We have made it a habit to do one job per morning, so that we don't tire ourselves out and they will occupy us for some time. Feet up after lunch usually means a half-hour Nanna nap! All I can say is "what a lot of tripe on TV!"
As you are all aware, we are in a unique situation with the Coronavirus spreading through the country, and you should keep an eye on what you should and shouldn't do to keep yourself safe.
Group gatherings are liable to assist the spread of the virus, and so our Forest Ladies Lunch Club monthly meetings will not go ahead until further notice. This does not mean we cannot keep in touch and hopefully all members will do so by phone or email to make sure each person is OK and doesn't need any help.
