  1. We are finding the customers of our little bakery/shop/off-licence are responding really well to our offerings of treats. I think that people need something to look forward to as they have had to forgo other, bigger fun things like any type of holidays or days out. One of the downsides of staying in more is that I find I am doing a bit more online shopping than I might do normally. I justify my purchases by making sure to order useful things so I have recently received a mini electric hotplate for making Greek coffee, a pair of rubber tap spouts for our kitchenette sink, a wifi booster to improve the broadband in some of the upstairs rooms, and electric hand beaters for making buttercream, etc. and I am waiting for some thermal gloves for working with frozen stock, a couple of wooden pot scrubbing brushes, oven gloves, loaf tins and greaseproof liners. I think I must miss my £shop visits!

  2. Another beautiful spring day spent in the garden. We had tea with our neighbours, all sitting in a huge circle 2 metres apart shouting at each other but it was really fun to do a (nearly) normal activity!
    We put up fairy lights in our cherry tree to cheer everybody up and do our part to add to this week’s Shout Out to the NHS and other key workers tonight.
