The nurse-practitioner from FiL's doctor's practice has just phoned. FiL is in the care home, under sedation, being given a small amount of oxygen. He is unable to swallow, so is only having a small amount of water to keep him comfortable. We will not be going to see him because he would not be aware of us, and the risk of catching the virus is too high because there are now several confirmed Covid-19 patients at the home.
This week has been clearer as to days as we've had assorted deliveries, one a day since Weds. Butcher today with their special offer of 3 of 6 items for £12. I ordered the lot. It'll keep up going for a good while. A dozen meals for us. All locally farmed.
YD has had the results from her last project, and has done very well, all things considered. Her tutor is pleased and has given some helpful hints for the future. He thinks she would have done even better had they been able to go into campus, use the equipment there and have help. She had a mixture of 1, 2i and 2ii, so is hovering between an upper second and a lower second.
My friend Di the aqua instructor came round for some eggs earlier and we had a socially-distanced chat. I also gave her a couple of the brownies I made on Wednesday. She loves them. Another friend should be here soon for her eggs. We still have 18!
Chicken report: three eggs today, from Lottie, Dottie and Griselda. There were 93 eggs last month, plus two broken ones.
