I've been to the vet's today, Heidi pussycat has started being sick again. The new system now is that you ring up, speak to the receptionist, tell her what the problem is, and she speaks to the vet. Later on she rings you back and tells you to come and pick the medication up. Pay over the phone with a card. Vet David doesn't need to see Heidi this time, and the medication is the same as she had before.
The next step is drive to the vet, and ring when you get there. The medication is put into a basket on a chair outside the side door. Shout thank you to the receptionist.
Vet closes at 5pm so I went at 4.15pm, to time it so I could get some cat food from Home Bargains, then get my shopping from Aldi. It worked really well.
The town centre was dead, no one about except a security guy standing guard in the shopping mall. Two people in Home bargains so it was a quick in and out.
At Aldi there were five people waiting to go in, only took a few minutes before it was my turn. The shop was not busy, plenty of room to move about. Not at all stressful.
I made myself a mask so I thought I would give it a try. I put it on in my car before I went into Aldi. I was the only person with a mask on.
I followed the instructions but found the elastic around the ears doesn't work very well when you wear glasses and a hearing aid, so I got two pieces of Velcro and attached them to the elastics so it fastens at the back of my head. I turned a hem over at the top and inserted a piece of wire which can be bent to fit the bridge of your nose.
It's difficult to stop the glasses misting up. I wore it the whole time I was there. It's two layers of cotton, didn't put a filter inside because it would have made it difficult to breath. Not medical grade of course, but it made me feel better knowing I had some kind of barrier over my mouth and nose. Better than nothing at all I thought. I shall wear it again.
We've had notice that our Village Summer Fair has been cancelled. Understandable but a shame because it's a big charitable fund raising event.
Don't forget, it's check in day for the International Walking Group members tomorrow. Let us know how you are doing. I'm going out now to get one last walk in, two miles around the village.
Thanks everyone for sharing your ideas on the previous post on how you entertain yourselves at home.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
