With the power being off for scheduled maintenance, after doing some work in the garden, we went into town for lunch at the Bistro de Paris where I had my usual Buckwheat Galette, today's was with mushrooms, potato and blue cheese - delicious. Doug also had the same as last time, the big breakfast. There was a steady flow of customers. I did notice hand sanitizer near the door but apart from that it was back to normal.
We then walked down the main street, which was no different to a usual Wednesday, to the A.T.M. at our bank. I needed to get some cash - we have needed cash a few times during lockdown for firewood etc. and I was able to borrow from an envelope we had ready to give Doug's grand daughter at her wedding which had to be postponed due to Lockdown. We didn't have to go into the bank, just use the machine outside but there was a security guard only letting a certain number of people in at a time.
Then it was a visit to browse at Trade Aid where we ended up buying a couple of cane baskets for our firewood.
We then drove to the Supermarket for our first "live shop" since Lockdown began. Apart from the perspex screens at the checkouts it was just the same as before, then to the Pharmacy for repeat prescriptions - no sanitiser there.
The power cut was a lot shorter than we were told so the power had been back on long before we got home.
The day started quite cold but warmed up during the day - I see it is set to get down to 6 degrees tonight.
