    Today I made a purchase I may not have done under 'normal' circumstances: one of those jigsaw puzzle portable boards. I have a 1000 piece puzzle of the map of the Underground I have been threatening to do for a long time. Have you bought anything out of the ordinary since Lockdown?

    I almost bought this Multifunctional Waterproof Art Backpack this morning. For when we're allowed to roam free again. Gonna do some plein air painting.

    You can wipe pvc down. It is unexpectedly practical, if noisy.

    Neither purchase was actually for me.

    I'm intrigued by the PVC skirt, I have to say. I have a fake suede one. I love it.

    I bought some cherry tomatoes for £3.00 from the local shop, as opposed to far less at the supermarket.

    Still, not a problem, and I'm happy to support them.

    Doing the same, ordering as much as possible of food shopping from a local organic/ health shop. It costs more but it's easier than facing the supermarket at the moment and I know the supermarkets will survive this, the small traders might not.

    Why's that? What's it doing? Often-times people think they need a new laptop, when in fact all that's required is a clean wipe and a reinstall.

    A gizmo for connecting an iPhone to the TV in order to see YouTube videos on the big screen.

    You'll need an adapter for this when the next iPhone model comes out.

    A new kindle. My old one started working again, but at least the new one is supposed to be waterproof. :)
