"Another week gone by already - tempus fugit as they say. The highlight of this forthcoming week was that, today, we had somewhere to go & something to do. Monday is the day that my 15 yo & I plus the dog go to town to pick up our weekly freegan box from a charity dedicated to saving perfectly edible food from landfill. They have been my lifeline during the lockdown - I find it difficult to queue at supermarkets &, even though I am in chronic pain, have mobility issues & an incurable degenerative spinal cord condition, I am not considered a “vulnerable” enough person to access any special “shopping hours” because I haven't made it onto the government’s list. Mind you - it’s not just me - scores of disabled folk have been similarly left off “the List”."
