Plague 2020

So here we are in the world of panic , just spent a happy hour trying to explain to a foodbank organiser that she needs to stop whining and get her bun into gear . They havent had many donations this week and are starting to panic , if people have to self isolate a lot of people will have no income or next month under the wonderful universal Credit they will get diddly squat to top up their income , plus it takes 5 weeks for Universal credit to kick in and thats if anyones in the call center to answer the phone .  So being a pragmatic person i suggested they set up a local Paypal account then advertise it through the local press , facebook etc . It seems they have a national system through the Trussel Trust network but not all foodbanks are affiliated to them , plus people are often more willing to help locally . The foodbank has good connections with Tesco and that should help them get what they actually need .
What will happen locally is a big worry for many , we are a tourist area , there are tons of trinket shops and few real shops , the coop seems to have most everything at a price of course . pasta and bog roll seem to be the main shortages , im well stocked up with everything , though i ventured to Lidl Sleaford yesterday , just caught the uht milk delivery so topped that back up , but theyd had no milk since the weekend , id ventured in for a couple of jars of sweet and sour sauce and came out with £20 worth of weird shit as my other half calls it . On a strange note ive had to stop buying lidl white bread it goes mouldy even before the sell by date , not a clue on that one.
Popped into town abandoned MR BH with useful son in the plague pit of Wetherspoons and had a mooch round Sleaford its packed  with charity shops , nothing interesting in them . But Wise Owl a local bargain shop chain did yield some of my favourite soup the discontinued M&S sweet potato and parmesan , plus a carrier bag full of weird and wonderful pot noodles another popular dying and not feeling the urge to cook mainstay . Plus point to having hayfever this early you get to go to the front of the queue pretty quick when you have a sneezing fit
