Today it was my turn to work and Tracy was off with the children. I spent most of the day on my work computer or on video and phone calls. Some of them were quite interesting, but I can’t tell you about them.
Tracy went out on a big shop today with Lucy. We’ve decided that Sainsbury’s in Redhill is clearly awful. Tracy went to Morrisons and it had plenty of everything that we wanted. There weren’t significant gaps in stock like the Sainsbury’s has, and it was much cheaper because Morrisons give NHS staff a 10% discount.
The other feature of today were a number of deliveries. Over the course of the day we had several parcels delivered
- A load of meat from a local butchers
- Lego for Alexander and Lucy
- Garden stakes so we can continue to fabric bits of the garden we’re taking back control of
- A degusta box (with cider, broccoli crisps and other interesting things)
- A replacement laptop battery
After dinner Alexander and I went on a long walk to burn off all the calories we’d eaten. We covered 4.5 miles and walked most of the way he went to school to the bottom of Frenches Road, and then back up along the A23 to Merstham station. When we were at the station a 12 carriage train pulled in. None of the doors opened, and when it pulled away we saw only three people in the whole train.
When we got in Tracy suggested Alexander try on his PPE.
