Quite a thing this sneaky bug that hides inside people who show no symptoms.  Easing of lockdowqn here in the UK but not so sure this is a good idea with medical experts predicting another spike in the Winter.  Still over a 100 people dying every day although the numbers are becoming less every day.  I am still not going into shops. The only place I go into is the pharmacy for my medication - once a month.  They have a one in one out policy which suits me. Usually when I go I'm the only one in the queue which is great.  Going again today so wish me luck!  Here's a stamp sheet ( first for 10 years!)  I cobbled togther from an old one I made in the 80's. To commemorate this milestone.

It should have arrived today.  Maybe tomorrow but I'm thinking the post office people have decided not to let us play!

Mary Anne -  thanks for trying a second time - fingers crossed!

I'm calling the first attempt a failure.  Second attempt went into the postbox this afternoon . . .

106th day of self isolating.  Good for you Martha - yes, seems very reasonable to attire yourself in all the PPE you can muster!   Hazel made me a mask but as I don't go into shops I havent worn it yet but it's in my pocket for when I do.  Gloves sounds like a good idea too.  Those implements designed for opening doors and poking buttons etc. seem like a good idea too.  I use my elbows a lot more these days - good for gates and turnstiles!

i am with you Michael, I do not listen to BoJo. Well, i never did, to tell the truth, but now I only listen to the experts. I only go out with mask and gloves, some white cotton ones I  had bought in the chemist long ago for something I forgot. Only to the park for some fresh air. It is quite desserted where I live. There is plenty to do in the house and garden and my busy Mail Art world. I cannot understand how my friends complain of being bored, non artist ones that is.
