  1. Finally completed the amalgamated video for last Thursday’s shout out forNHS/carers/key workers. it can he seen here: Been helping and watching it work its way across the world via social media all day.

    Received a Tescos delivery in an eight hour slot reserved for those of us considered at “high risk”. I booked it on Monday morning when actually there were normal slots available which vanished between 7 and 9am. Turns out the high risk deliveries come from Exeter, whereas the normal ones come from our local store in Kingsteignton. I’d have preferred not to have involved city folk.

    Spent a surprising amount of time separating Dad’s items out and sanitising everything I could sanitise. Thanks to Lewis for dropping his stuff down to him.

    Had another home delivery of cider and some fantastic cheese from the Old Commercial.

  2. Watched the video of last Thursday’s ‘Over The Rainbow’ shout out to the NHS. It made me cry…what an amazing village we live in. Thanks to everyone who took part and to James for pulling all the video footage together (I know this was a really lengthy and challenging job) the end result is a true masterpiece.
