    No. But I'm not going into supermarkets until I think I'd be safe and that looks some way off. My age and recent 'indisposition' render me at risk.

    On the rare occasion I need something from a shop, I pop in the local mini-mart if they're empty of customers.

    She is Marco. I was coping fine alone for the couple of years she was down in Kent looking after her ailing mother, but I suppose it's a reasonable idea for her to be handy just in case I have another 'funny turn'. Not that it's likely.

    Looks like Diane Abbott is going to lose her meal ticket now that Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended. Obviously a hatchet job for Starmer's new order (new, New Labour?). She won't survive that, perhaps she can find a more suitable career. Novelty doorstop maybe?

    Only if they sold her in the pound shops. But I would prefer to have her located outside my front door, where if she was posed a certain way could be very effective at scraping the mud off my wellies.

    You crack me up Steve. A good belly laugh in these times is worth a lot, thanks.

    Wellie scraper is a good idea.
