Mrs Steve and I are fine. We live three miles out of Bude, in the middle of nowhere, and have to go into town to shop. We also shop for another couple who are older than us and who are self-isolating. On our way home we stop on a cliff top to go for a walk. There's hardly anyone out and about and there are huge open spaces. The weather's lovely at the moment. My 91-year-old mum is in a care home ten minutes' drive away but I haven't been allowed to visit her for two weeks, and she's too deaf to use the phone. I've been writing lots of letters to her. We can't visit or be visited by our children or grandchild. The supermarkets round and about have organised themselves very well to maintain social distancing, except for Lidl, who have done next to nothing and which is full of shoppers who are ignoring the guidance. I won't be going there again after my trip this morning to shop for our friends. If they want us go shop from now on, they'll have to pay Morrisons prices!
