This morning we drove to Gainsborough to do our weekly shop at the Tesco supermarket. I headed straight to the pet section and was dismayed to see the shelves completely empty – not even a single can or dog biscuit. Fortunately we have enough dog food at home to keep Rick fed for about four weeks, after that he will have to eat chips with the rest of us! There was no milk, rice, pasta , flour or toilet rolls. Even the wine was rationed to three bottles per customer.
Meanwhile in Australia the sisters have managed to escape the madding crowds and have pitched their tent at an idyllic, secluded site next to a creek and nearby beach. Looks like a great place to self isolate. Have fun girls.
