and forgot nothing

Hoping to save precious weekend time, I ducked out to do the grocery shopping at lunch time today.

In good news, it was relatively quiet and people were appropriately socially distancing. Hand sanitiser and trolley wipes were plentiful.

In less than good news, it takes 2-3 times longer than in the Before Times because you need to allow time and space for everyone to select their items. Some people can linger for over 5 minutes choosing sausages.

Hot tip: cue up a decent audiobook or podcast for these occasions.

Despite the relative ease of the process, I felt as if I needed to sit in a quiet room and decompress for a bit – perhaps even (badly) meditate. Unfortunately I only had time to smash down a sandwich before jumping on yet another call.

Must allow time for that after the next trip.

The problem is that one’s usual products aren’t available and it takes time to figure out the closest substitute!
