I am about to order a book, other than that I have bought nothing in Lockdown apart from food & drinks.

God knows what the wife and off-sprung have bought though, parcels arrive every other day.

I will be putting a number of bids on various wines though in the upcoming week, having done a bit of analysis over the last few weeks.

I love this.

Coffee in the morning
Run in the afternoon
Pissed in the evening
And something for the wife (assuming you didn't order a ventilator)

A battery for the digital thermometer for $5.47 (It's an odd one and not readily available at the drug store)
I also got a new leaf blower that I ordered on line, but went and picked up curbside at the store (does that count?)
A set of ink cartridges for my printer which is doing double duty during these times.
My wife bought some cosmetic stuff... not sure why as she's not going out.
Some flowers for a friends 50th anniversary (which reminds me, it's ours tomorrow... maybe I should order some for my wife...)

Thant's about it I think, apart from ordering a few take outs on line that required pick-up by me.

Be very careful buying knives online, Peter. Brands like Global etc. are copied and if you're not careful that excellent bargain could turn out to be nothing of the sort.

Supermarkets have taken on extra delivery drivers but they still can’t meet demand ........what is selfish is people who would normally shop at supermarkets themselves and have taken up all the delivery slots, therefore impacting the elderly and the vulnerable.

My Max normally relies on supermarket delivery, he is profoundly deaf and registered blind as you know .....he cannot get a delivery slot at all, so he sends me a list and I get it all for him. He’s even afraid to take his guide dog on a working walk to the local shops as the dog isn’t trained in social distancing , so just been taking him for a free run or short walk every day.
Paragraph 1. Have they? I don't see any evidence of it judging by the comments I have seen. Perhaps they could lend their staff out seeing as they avoid their tax.

Paragraph 2. See point 1. And they pretty much all work for Amazon do they not?

Paragraph 3. Totally my point. Even with extra drivers they can't cope, hence the need for more help.

Paragraph 4. I am also high risk, as is my missus and her mother who lives next door, we are also having trouble getting slots because of teh selfish, hence the need to refuse deliveries of non essential, and release those drivers to food deliveries.

I could get used to our new government, Amazon.

They do treat their employees pretty s***e, but not as bad as the tories.

Imagine if we had a government that not only promised you what you voted for, but also delivered it to your door and you could track it !!!

For all delivery drivers, you are my world and I am sincerely grateful.

With regards to Amazon letting their drivers switch to supermarket deliveries, are there enough suitable vehicles? Dont all the delivery van's have to be, at least, partially refrigerated?

Thanks. Not that bothered about professional chef stuff TBH. Something better than the decade old blunt stuff we have in the house.
