A No1 buzz cut does me. Head, eyebrows, beard. Takes about 5 minutes.
Sheep in June, dog moults once a year. Sorted.

I have long hair, and haven't been to the hairdressers for 40 years. OH/other family member cuts the back and I do the fringe. However, 10 days ago I asked for 4-6 inches off the back, so I now have shoulder length hair. Nothing to do with CV, just fancied a change!

I had the same experience with Sainsburys, trying to get an online delivery for my Mum. To start with I couldn't get a slot at all, despite getting up all through the night on successive days. Then lucked out and got one. Then they announced priority for the elderly and for 2-3 days the entire site was down. However, since then its been great. They are tending to release slots only 1-3 days in advance so you do have to keeping checking in to find one, but it is working and I am mega grateful. They knew my Mum was elderly via her Nectar card, but currently you can self-report, although I suspect that will be superceded by Govt database which is being given to retailers. I ask myself what is this Govt database, is it our NHS records? Anyway, this is not the time to quibble.

It does ask for your NHS number so yes I suppose they do know if you qualify. It doesn't ask what's wrong with you, just gives a list of complaints and you have to tick if you have one of them - real or imaginary! It does ask if you've had a disaster letter but you can register if you haven't had one.

I believe there has been a huge surge in the amount of food waste going to landfill. Downright criminal any time, but particularly at the moment.
Lead me not into temptation. I can find the way myself!

I read that this is because of the huge amount of food ordered in advance by suppliers to canteens restaurants and other commerciual outlets which are now closed. It comes in huge packages which can't be split up because of the difficulty of re-labelling it in smaller portions to conform to EU food labelling standards. So it's being wasted.

Indeed. Cherish the time you have with your family. And contacts with your friends - by whatever means you talk to them. xx

Very interesting and somewhat chilling Marigold. We should all be so grateful to the people keeping things going for us.
