I actually consider myself very lucky in terms of my requirement to go to work. This means I am out and about and can call into supermarkets on my way home. Straight in, straight out!

I am off today for a much needed break - had a weeks annual leave booked but cancelled it due to the situation - and tried to go shopping only to discover queues round the car parks because supermarkets are only allowing a few people in at a time.

I hope this is because all the people self-isolating are out food shopping. I am hoping to continue to pop into the shop on the way home as needed.

If not Sainsbury's are open from 7.30 am until 8 for NHS staff so I may have to take advantage of that. Won't be able to buy any frozen stuff mind!

Keep well, keep safe xx

No I don't remember it, but I probably wouldn't have watched something like that back then. Might have done in present day though(prior to C-19). However I do watch The Walking Dead :shock:

I have watched a few virus disaster movies in the past. Thing is they always end up with them able to produce a vaccine from the first survivor and it works straight away and save the world. If only that was true.

I am advised that 'Contagion' is the movie to watch - a friend of mine's 12 year old daughter actually thought it was about the current Corona crisis.

Not sure if I would want to watch that to be honest?

I do like disaster movies and we watch quite a few on SciFy channel. But in the middle of watching I am thinking 'why on earth am I watching this' :lol: Now it is a bit like living in one instead of watching. In the virus ones I have watched, they always make a fantastic vaccine from the first person(usually the main star of the film) who recovers. Straight off saves the world!
