seems shops have the essentials, not too bad everywhere seems empty and not many people.

I gotta venture to the shops tomorrow. Pretty sure I am going to turn some heads in a face mask and gloves.

Sanderstead Waitrose today, 2 metres apart queue, no more than 45 in store, trolleys cleaned as they come out, NHS can queue jump, max of 3 of any item, reasonably stocked, only thing they were short on was pasta and chicken and a few other bits. Staff well happy.
Long may it continue…felt like it was supermarket sweep once inside.

Good luck Pad. Into our second week here in France. I’ve got a 7 and 11 year old here. Hyperactive and stuck in an apartment :o If yours are anything like mine you’ll be working harder than the missus with the fucking home schooling haha haha

Logged on to Ocado out of curiosity more than anything and it's a 3 hour wait. Mental.

Went to local Tesco at 6:30am. Was pretty busy for that time of the morning. Most stuff was available, eggs and bread were the only things not there.
I went in full mask and gloves. Amazed me the staff didn’t have masks on. Some didn’t even have gloves on. Also loads of old people wandering around looking like everything was normal.

I'm about the only white person in Australia wearing a mask I think.
don't get the eggs thing, you can't really freeze em, boiled/fried first maybe.
I'm still going to work, ghost-town, got a whole bus to myself this morning. I'll keep going until we go full lockdown, I get paid by the hour and our bailout is shit compared to yours. Basically they doubled the dole for anyone claiming it now. So a lot of part timers will actually get a pay rise by sitting on their ass. Double dole would barely cover my rent though so I'm still working as long as I can. Our government is so fucking stupid..

I dunno if they work really but made me feel more comfortable being in there. I got them for work when we are cutting stone so figured might as well use one.
