Thankfully, we had a very large store cupboard but this is becoming increasingly depleted day by day. We had done a very large shop prior to lockdown. We are blessed with a village store that delivers so we have been able to do a top up shop on a weekly basis. Realistically, it is not affordable for us to replenish the store cupboard there but we needed to do something. Our daughter had sat up each night trying to get us a delivery slot at Tesco's to no avail so finally we phoned the help number on our high risk letter. What a wonderful service, we now have a delivery slot for Thursday and have already put the order in. Time will tell if we get it all. There were some restrictions only 3 of the same item and a limit of 80 items per shop. I must admit it was a great relief to us both. That was Friday...
Saturday was spent baking and getting a few more animals ready to share with the Sunday school children. Another poem was added to the journal which I will share at a later date.
Sunday, a traditional roast and listening to the Church services. Life is very slow paced but it continues and we are blessed. We have only had 6 cases on the Island with none of them hospitalised and no deaths due to Covid 19.
We finally managed a walk over the croft now that it is all dry it is easier to walk. We knew there was nobody about you can see for miles but such a joy to get some fresh air and exercise a little. It was nice to spend a couple of hours looking through past photos. This time last year a little trip and walk by the lighthouse at the Butt of Lewis.
Hope you enjoyed reminiscing along with me?
How was your weekend? We are certainly living in strange times. Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
