    Default Freedom at Last.

    We have been self-isolating for months and getting supermarket deliveries of indifferent produce picked off the shelf by disinterested parties, or maybe robots.

    Yesterday we decided to break free and drove to a large supermarket at the crack of dawn, gloves and masks and all. It was pretty empty, except for avoiding shelf stackers.A

    What a revelation to see fresh produce as we remembered it and be able to choose our own.
    We bought tons of stuff and returned well satisfied with our expedition. Dennis

    Well done Dennis a dawn raid on the supermarket! So much food to savour and I bet it tastes good. The peaches and nectarines are at their very best just now I have discovered.

    problem is that the only way to tell if supermarket strawbs are any good is to smell them. Which you can't do with a mask on - nor should you go sniffing at packaging!

    Oh Dennis, I bet that was lovely and so much more enjoyable than being stuck indoors and your meal probably tasted better too! We went to our favourite bookshop on Thursday and it felt so wonderful to be out and about.

    Yes Jules, we have to enjoy it before there is another spike of the dreaded lurghi. Dennis.

    I’m still finding it very difficult to go out and actually enjoy it - the new Covid meaures(which I know are necessary) make me feel stressed. Things just don’t feel normal yet. Maybe an early morning excursion like Dennis is the answer!
