Online shop

After weeks and weeks on endless nights and early morning hours of non sleep trying to book an online slot for a grocery delivery, I finally got one with Ocado. Can’t believe it! Don’t have to be rationing toilet paper and worrying about food. Sorry! I’m not meaning to upset anyone who is having trouble in getting a online shop, but I live alone and I suffer from chronic back pain so I can’t do the early morning slots that the supermarkets are offering and I have no one who can go for me so very happy.
Anyone who is my predicament, I would suggest keep trying and and if you see the time of this post, 4.18am, you might also be lucky and get a slot. Yes I’m shattered! But happy I can relax and not worry for a little while.
Now time for some sleep!
