Mrs Knulpuk returned from Sainsbury with loo rolls today. The only thing they never had was peanut butter, which makes sense I suppose.

Someone told me that cat litter was sold out but I didn't think cats were that bothered by Covid-19.

That's understandable. Which household pet do you suppose is doing their business on Knulpuk's peanut butter though?

Local big tesco restricting numbers in the stores, queues outside with markings on the floor for distance. All worked really well and they had everything I was looking for but I don't know how that will work at the weekend, assuming that it will still be busier on the weekend nowadays.

Did a weekly shop today. Took Mrs S as she was doing the shop for her Mum, and a few bits for some friends down the road. Pulled into local Asda car park and it was only about 1/4 full. Cue a guy counting customers going in & out. He said they're only allowed 190 customers in at a time. Found it remarkably quiet inside. Managed to get everything including toilet rolls. Next time, going again at 3:00pm. Definitely the time to go.

Had a food delivery today but no toilet rolls or washing up liquid. Wanted to order another delivery for next Thursday but slot was full within a minute but luckily a previously full slot on Tuesday opened.
Within 5 mins they set a new rule limiting o line orders to 35 euro.
