  1. Husband used his car for the first time in over a month to collect the Tesco pre ordered shopping. Now need to look out for another slot for a few weeks. They get released at midnight but after a day working and childcare I can never stay awake….also have the dilemma that slots should be for most vulnerable…..

    Found out last week our daughter got a place at the village school….who knows if that will start in September…..

    Her little friends in the village have written a few notes and left flowers on the drive – so cute.

  2. Bishopsteignton Heritage held its first ‘Zoom’ Trustees Meeting today – so many firsts! After a couple of attempts and a bit of ingenious patching in of one Trustee using Facetime instead we held a successful meeting and it was great to see familiar faces again.
    Spent the afternoon in the garden painting garden pots that had got a bit faded. It felt good to do something productive and one mustn’t let standards drop despite the fact few people may see them!
