    We live in the countryside, about 5 miles from the nearest supermarket, so shopping it is !

    Yep, I agree, shopping it is. Might as well go in a proper car and I have a decent run to the nearest supermarkets too. Hopefully they are getting a bit quieter. The panic buyers must be running low on space by now. All that toilet roll, pasta and flour will take up a lot of space! Goodness knows what they are doing with it all - are the three connected??? I would have thought the opposite!

    I usually un-sorn the cobra in April, as the weather is usually ok, but don’t know if it’s worth it as there are only so many times I can claim I am going shopping officer, and besides our local food shops are only a five minute walk away, not even far enough for the needle to move on the temp gauge.

    We had a caravan holiday booked for next week in Devon, and I made a big mistake and looked at the forecast for next week in Devon, sodding glorious all week

    Very frustrating for me. I don’t want to SORN the car even though it’s off the road. It’s in my brothers double garage and needs a mere half days work to get her mobile as she is still taxed, MOT’d and insured.
    We have also just moved house just over a week ago, (we got that in just in time) and I’m desperate to get her back to where she belongs, in my garage so that I can finish her off for Le Mans in September.
    But I can’t realistically go to my brothers house during this lock down period to work on her.
    Annoying to say the least.
