  1. I spent my Day 11 in the Heritage Hub working on my new series ‘At Home with Your Archive’ to great success. Another beautiful day but I am not going for enough exercise.

  2. 3 of our friends form Bristol were supposed to have been coming to stay for the weekend but this visit has obviously been cancelled. Don’t know when we get together face-to-face again.
    Hubby tried to go shopping at Tesco in Kingsteignton at around 11:00 today, but the queue was back to beyond the click and collect point. He decided to abandon that idea not due to the wait (time is not an issue at the moment) but he was concerned at the sheer number of people trying to shop at the same time as it would be difficult to stay distant from one another. More success at Red Rock Brewery in Humber though – they are selling bottled beer by the case so we are stocked up for the weekend!
    My laptop has decided to die on me so I spent much of the day searching the internet for businesses still trading who may be able to supply a similar model as a replacement. Thank goodness for technology in these trying times but as we take it increasingly for granted, when it lets you down you can feel powerless to take back control.
    Another first this evening – we had a ‘facetime’ drink with friends that we usually meet at Then Old Workshop on Friday nights – this was actually really fun and great to spend some time chatting ‘face-to-face’ with a beer in hand!
