I thought that last week, when the only carrots I could find in Waitrose were the expensive "heritage" ones. Might as well treat myself, I thought, as I am not spending the money on anything else at the moment! And jolly nice they were too!!

You CAN go out, shopping etc can still be done unless you have health issues of course? I will have to get some supplies in early next week, I actually bit the bullet and tried Tesco's online again (Sainsburys will not accept me despite being a registered customer, yet I regularly get emails from them?) but Tesco have no deliveries for a month at least so I might just as well get my own from either our Sainsburys store or Iceland. No other shops are open apart from the pharmacy, pet shop and the butcher. Oh M&S will be but I can't afford another mortgage, and they have no freezer stuff anyway. We filled the van up with diesel two weeks ago as we should have been in Reading last weekend and heading for ten days in Scotland today so that tankfull could last me a long time as, apart from nipping into town, I wont be going far until at least August! :-) Just glad that we sold the car three weeks ago now! :whistle1:

In your situation Pete you could register as a vulnerable person on behalf of your wife and that will get you onto Sainsbury’s register, you’ll find delivery slots available. Go to gov.uk

She isn't really vulnerable though Liz, I don't think only having MS or being unable to walk counts as she doesn't have any heart/lung or breathing issues?

Edited to say I tried registering but, as I thought, she isn't classed as being vulnerable.

I thought that anyone over 70 was classed as vulnerable?

No problem, the forum does need some of us more junior members. :whistle1:

Not all shops have implemented the increase to £45, apparently - just had an email from Aldi saying that they will be doing so from April 8th. Just thought I would mention it, as it is worth checking before you start buying.

Nobody should have implemented it yet - it should be done on Wednesday 1st at the earliest.

Ah - thank you. Hadn't realised that. Sorry.
