Hubby and I are well in Newcastle, NSW Australia. He has been working from home for a week so far and I am retired. We plan to get our out-of-control garden into some sort of order, including the vege patch.

The supermarkets here are very well organised, although there are a lot of empty shelves for some items. The special access hour for the elderly - I guess that's us! - and people with a disability has been fantastic and there are social distancing marks on the floor and a security person at the entrance asking everyone to use hand sanitiser before being allowed in. Very civilised.

The blood & plasma donation centre is still open so I am donating as often as I am allowed because there will be less eligible donors than usual due to the risk of infection.

My twice per month session group has sadly had to cancel further sessions until this pandemic gets more under control. This will be the first real break for this session group in nearly 40 years. I'll have to commit to practising music on my own. Not as much fun.
