Once more it is down to PMP to bring out another aspect of life and living as we do astride the M6 motorway we are well placed to monitor the truck traffic, this time at the end of our road, alone in my little IQ a two minute drive and getting the remote camera set up for a couple of hours and then a few snaps with the still camera which forms the slide show tonight. Tomorrow we have to go to Handforth Dean to shop, we also have our more elderly neighbours shopping to get. First hopefully M&S at opening time 8am and then to Tescos next door for their golden oldies hour at 9 am. We can go by the new road straight to Handforth and don't pass through any substantial urban area at all.
There are still lots of jobs to be done, was hoping to carry on with weeding but council have stopped collecting the waste, I can't see the bin lads were in any danger and it was a younger neighbour who told us they weren't collecting, she'd seen it on Facebook. Locally there is no news at all and you have to hunt on the net to find contradictory advice on shop opening. Why not have a standardised set aside times for elderly, NHS and essential workers etc , it could vary by area if need be but at least it was county sized the older non internet people would get to know. I had a phone call from Devon again with people who know us asking for advise and completely in the dark as to what they can do, their bus service to their village has ceased. Yet again the vulnerable, elderly and disabled are certainly in 'it' but it is not together with Eton toffs.
