Apocalypse shopping

So this is shopping now, just in case this is all a distant memory one day. Fortunately, unlike what Charlotte is reporting from Scotland, toilet roll is still plentiful, and pasta has not sold out, not even the fancy and exotic things like bucatini, nothing is rationed and no one is stockpiling. On arrival, however, you are now sanitized and then given gloves and as you walk around, there are little red markers on the floor telling you where to wait to give way to other customers, though as you can see, we didn't have much giving way to do. A lone sign at the checkout reinforces this. It's hard to remember that just three weeks ago, you simply ran in, filled a basket then ran out again, happily chatting to others or passing products to those beside you.
