    The zoom meeting went by the way, completely forgot, both to sign up for it and to try to attend  ;) the fencer arrived at 7.30 that day to try to beat the rain this time, so by 10am I was ker-nackered.
    But I have a fence!  And a side gate that opens, as well as my nice metal front gate hung again.  I've lost the catch that goes on the support, so fencer guy fashioned a piece of wood that sort of has a snick to it.  Very cool.  
    Supermarket delivery arrived - erm, twice as many toilet rolls as I ordered?  Cans of tomato that I didn't order.  And the hash browns that I buy as a treat were scrunched open by a machine claw or something.  I've thrown out half the pack (its the "or something" that I wonder about, could be anything, including a rat) and 20% of my order was a no-show - I think supply lines are getting a bit stretched.
    Tidying and re-ordering the house has been the order of the day - shopping still to be disinfected etc, and the garden tidied, though I made a second pass at gathering the leaves today.  Bit by bit :smiley:

    Great news on the fence & the gate. 
    Less good news on the shopping though.

    Fabulous news on the fence & gates!  I'm sure you are quite pleased to check another one off of your list!

    I'm with you on the grocery disinfecting!  I had a large [email protected] order arrive over the course of last week - various storecupboard items we use regularly that were cheaper by far to buy from 'the beast' rather than the supermarkets & a bonus is completely contactless delivery by default. Still though - everything needs a good clean & then the kitchen floor given a good wash down :blush: - but it's been a challenging work week & all I really want to do is veg!  At some point though, I'll get to it!

    Finally managing to keep all the balls in the air and juggle the budget!

    Not sure if you know that the bark can blow away?
