    Call it gluten free veg lasagna? We have no trouble getting parmesan, even recently.

    I admit that I hadn't tried to get Parmesan recently. Its good that it is still available for those who value it. Maybe its too expensive for the masses.

    Use it in veg lasagne along with courgettes. Really nice change from the traditional meat.

    Not sure being over it allows you out of isolation. Have to ask Boris.

    This is a smooth running operation. I used the ASDA app to announce my arrival. The shopping was in trays from which I transferred it to my own boxes. No problem maintaining >2m separation. Even if it had been raining (it wasn't) it would be fine . The drive through area is under cover.
    I allowed substitutions but they were few and sensible.
    I am very impressed and my estimation of ASDA has risen. For normal shopping I prefer Morrisons but as far as I know they have nothing like this. Sainsbury and Tesco are not convenient for me.

    Savour it. Emotional moment when I hugged Julie this morning.

    RTBC:
    Although a lot of places made a big thing about free hot drinks etc for NHS staff they all closed...All bar LEON on Tottenham Court Road. Wasn't sure they'd consider me NHS staff but I went in and explained and they gave me a free coffee, very nice it is as well, it made my morning (It also made sense because it meant not having to go to the canteen which is a bit small and makes social distancing hard)

    Washing machine guy came yesterday, needed a part so put it on order. Part available today, fitting booked for Monday. Not quite the next day service we had first time around but better than waiting 2 weeks...

    Working at a table next to my indoor bike setup is handy. Every hour or so my heart rate watch reminds me to move so I can hop on for a minute or two and not spend the whole day sedentary. :)

    Not sure if this is a RTBC or a WGYG. One of our local Facebook groups shared a graphic to show their appreciation of all the people who had no option but to continue working. A Farmer was on there (RTBC) and he was wearing dungarees, a plaid shirt, and had a piece of hay hanging out of his mouth (WGYG).

    Oh? You mean like all Scotsmen are in kilts? Yes, very irritating stereotyping. We all know you spend all your time in an office, counting all that money the Government pays you. ;) :p
