Another rant.

Well, not a rant as such.

Just in from work, and I have to say that judging by the amount of people out today, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the numbers rise sharply.

I feel really let down.

Does anyone think face masks will be made compulsory?

I sincerely hope not. I think my local pharmacist is thinking about early retirement because he is charging £3 a face mask and let's face it, they are disposable after each time it is used.

I am quite looking forward to it. I have raided my stash and made myself some masks from really pretty floral material with lace and ribbon trim. I have several, they are easily washed and ironed with a really hot iron.

Patterns are readily available online and they can easily be made by hand. You do not need a sewing machine.

I have some, DD is a therapist, is unable to work at the moment and has some spare ones, if I go shopping I will certainly wear one, whether or not we are advised to.
