    Ugh! What a dilemma to deal with, getting the wrong shopping order. The stores around me have plenty of food but toilet paper is still in short supply. W bought more food than usual at our last grocery excursion but that’s because we usually eat out several times a week, since it’s just hubby and me. I guess I will be cooking every night for the foreseeable future. It could be worse! Stay safe, Anne!

    I have cried quite a few times seeing photos of elderly people looking lost in shops with nothing on their shelves and people. It’s so sad.
    I got my Tesco shop today and it wasn’t half as bad as I expected. It sounds like you had quite the drama with your delivery. I’m glad it was sorted quickly.
    Have you tried your little local shops. We have a little Tesco express just up the road and it has just about everything in apart from the loo rolls.

      we have a fabulous local shop which is a franchise of the Co-op, it has everything although the co-op is not the cheapest of stores. We can even get toilet roll! I do think this will all calm down if people just shopped normally. The supermarkets will stay open and there is enough food and supplies to be on the shelves if people just stopped hoarding.

    Glad you managed to get your shopping back. It’s gone crazy in the shops at the moment. Our local shop hasn’t been too bad although I have seen more empty shelves over the last few days and we had 10 days when I couldn’t seem to get toilet toll anywhere before I finally managed to get one pack. I’m buying more at the moment because I have family to shop for who are self-isolating but I agree that if we all just buy normal amounts of things, then it would be better for everyone. It makes it so much harder for people who rely on that one shop and/or have limited budgets. Hope that you can manage to get a delivery slot again soon. Thanks for hosting #WotW. Stay safe x
