  1. Thought I’d order some paint from B&Q today so that we can do some decorating whilst we have time on our hands. The system is that you can order items on line and then drive to the store where B&Q staff will put your stuff in the boot for you outside the shop. Seems like a great idea but when I tried to access their website there is now a ‘virtual queue’ to even get onto the web site to browse. I assume this is to stop the web site from crashing … but the 3 times I tried today I got a message saying the expected queue time would be an hour!!!! I think I will have to try in the middle of the night?
    I have to say a really big thank you to Alison for opening the Pharmacy today on a Bank Holiday. Mum needed an emergency supply of corn plasters and I was able to get them in a relatively ‘safe’ way here in the village instead of queuing with lots of people in Kingsteignton.
