    Just using my local shops, plus the convenience store, not using the supermarket at all. We go out tomorrow, my wife does a few shops I do a few, shopping for the week done in about 45 minutes.

    I've actually found the click and collect slots a bit easier to get than the delivery ones and to be honest even when this is all over I'll probably carry on doing those. They're really handy. Book your collection time then do your shop as you would an online one. You then turn up at the shop tap your booking number into a key pad and someone brings it all out to you. I did one this morning and was in and out of the place in less than 5 minutes.

    Reported cases was 80 - the actual number was much, much more.

    Looks like we got away with the VE day silliness then and much of the other breaking of distancing rules since - cases still falling.

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    Missus runs 2 schools, both academies, both early doors...out of 81 teachers they have 16 who can actually come in. But not at the same time. Staggered to minimize the risk. No actual curriculum will be taught. Max 8 to a class. no games. No toys. Not even the child's proper teacher in most cases.

    800 kids, around 80 are saying they are coming in.

    And the point of all this is?

    I don't think we were that silly to be honest. Yes, social distancing got down to half a metre but people were outside and barely anyone went through the airspace previously occupied by someone else, so not much transmission would have occurred.
