Sorry about the layoff, Boeun. Glad youíre still managing ok, regardless. Toilet paper shortages seems to be a common thread in the lockdown experience.

Itís become a little better here in my part of Oz, with tp turning up more reliably on the shelves. Still not back to normal. Because a relo dropped off a 24 pack heíd scored and, the very next day, a grocery delivery arrived with tp for once (instead if the usual out of stock disappointment), i now have an embarrassment of riches. All to the good - i can now spare plenty of rolls if others run out without worrying whether weíll still have enough.

Hand sanitiser was another item in short supply but seems to be improving, in part because we have two local distilleries who turned their hand (pun intended) to making it. Some of the compounding pharmacies also started making their own and offering refills.

Although i spent a lot of time at home before all, I miss being able to get out and spend a little time - in a cafe, at the beach, meeting up with relos, and just exploring. Had been planning to try to join some groups and start making some local friends but thatís going to be off the table for a while. Did slip out the other day to pick up some take-away. Local cafe does a wonderful Easter egg latte - could not resist. Do drive through service (well you park out the front). Was lovely.

Theyíve just had a run of fresh local prawns (shrimp in US) and Iíd love to go into the fishermenís coop to pick some up (on special too) but even mum (who adores prawns) says nope, too risky.

I got laid off my job, but luckily my husband is working from home and his company is doing well. We are annoyed and bored, but healthy and well. If we could only find some toilet paper!

Hi

Sorry itís taken a while to reply. Been distracted by everything thatís been going on. Just thought to log in and see how how all were going too.

So far doing ok here in Oz. Moved cities with my elderly mum before Christmas and even before this had already been stuck at home more than usual due to all the bushfires and smoke haze around. Mumís in a high risk group if she gets the virus due to her age and health. Iíve also had lung damage due to a chronic condition. Iím trying to get everything delivered and stay home.

So weíre worried and saddened by how much loss of life there has already been worldwide. Hopeful weíll get through this and come out the other side.

Sending virtual koala hugs to all of you.

I've started a time management tips thread in the General area, if anybody would like to contribute. And maybe we could share more recipes? I'm always game to try new recipes.

I keep checking here every once in a while, to see what people are doing.  I am saddened that there isnít much discussion going on.

Mainly, I plan ahead. I choose what I'm going to wear the day before, if it's for the morning, or earlier in the day for evening. If I need to bring anything with me, I gather it and place it on the kitchen bar which is very near the back door where I exit.

Wow! Yes, 6 inches would have prevented me from getting to work also.

I remember the one winter when we lived in an apartment house, I hated having to climb down the stairs from our third-floor apartment, because they were outside stairs.

Were you ever snowed in, i.e. the stairs were impassable?
