Simple acts of kindness

I went up to the village shop this morning (goodness knows when I’ll be able to go again) and a nice young woman working there said, ‘We must all look out for each other, mustn’t we?’ When I got home, I found a note in my letterbox from my young neighbours, saying I wasn’t to hesitate to ask for anything I needed and giving all their contact details.

These simple acts of kindness restore one’s faith in human nature.

I spoke too soon

I’ve just gone to Tesco online. There is not a single slot available until April! After this weekend I may be told to stay at home. WTF am I supposed to do? I can’t believe that all the people who’ve nabbed the slots are over seventy. I wonder if they’ll refund my Delivery Saver payment, since I can’t get deliveries?

PS Waitrose and Ocado websites both down. Any ideas?
