This week I thought it was about time I started adding squares to my mitred square blanket.
I made a very small start on this before Christmas but I now have all those gorgeous minis from my Advent calendars to start adding.
It's got a lot of growing to do, If I can I'm going to try and fit in one square a day until the end of the month, although, once you get going it's very hard to stop at one square, I love dipping into my baskets and choosing the next colour.
Like the rest of the world I've bee following the news on this coronavirus, It's very frightening how quickly and how far it has spread in such a short time.
I think we must all do our bit to ensure we are keeping ourselves and our family as safe as we possible can and to try and minimise the spread.
We have decided that unless it's absolutely necessary we won't be visiting my mum, if we are out shopping and work we can't be sure who we have been in contact with and would hate to think we have inadvertently taken something into her house. We will drop shopping to her and leave it in the porch from now on. Better safe than sorry!
I am not one of those people who has gone out and done enough shopping to fill a small bunker, I am just doing (or trying to do ) my normal shopping. I have always shopped for cleaning supplies once a month, I know how much stuff we get though in a month and it gets replaced every four weeks, luckily had just done that at the end of last month, so we are ok for those things for a while yet, I will not be going out to buy more before I would normally shop again Personally I think it's appalling how people have been selfishly loading their trolleys with all this stuff, I dislike unfairness.
My daughter could not get any baby formula last week and had to ring round every supermarket until she eventually found some, and they had only got four tins!. This week there are no nappies or wipes to be had, (yes she knows there are alternatives for these things), but If people are going to clear the shelves then It's only right that supermarkets limit the amount you can buy.
At the moment we are still going into work, although we have all been given the means to work from home if, or when the time comes. Most of the the lads in the office are up and down the country to different sites and meetings etc throughout the week, it's really only a matter of time until someone has it. I've decided that from tomorrow I'm not signing for any deliveries, I will ask the driver to sign my name for me, you don't know who's hands have touched that machine and I will be asking visitors to use the antibacterial gel as they enter and leave, just sensible precautions.
I hope that wherever you are you are keeping yourself and your family as safe as you can.
