Seems Scomo can’t go a day without saying something quite stupid but in this case he really put my cat among the chickens.. what I sell are not puzzles but they are pretty dang close. This has been our busiest week ever. I now sit here with paper and a pen so I can write down what people are ordering then go and put everything ordered aside once an hour or so, otherwise I’m just up and down all day and I don’t get much actual work done.
Plus I have been waiting on stock which comes from China, so all of that is thoroughly sprayed with anti bac spray once it arrives here. Not much of it has been, because there are not a lot of planes flying at the moment. I did get a big delivery in yesterday and much of it is already gone. Great for the business, great for the people being kept amused, it is keeping me very busy and I need to make sure I take actual breaks. People can just message me, arrive in my driveway, I’ll bring their stuff out, they tap their card and away they go.
I actually hit tilt today though.. There is only one of me and only so many trains I can keep running on the tracks at any one moment. I’m going to get an early night and start again tomorrow. I might need to aim for a day off and a day out soon, too.
The parents needed some items today plus I had to go post some things to customers so armed with my trusty facemask, hand sanitiser and anti-bac spray, I was off. The only thing I could not get was sultana cake mix – the shops here have completely sold out of cake mix.
I found toilet rolls! My parents think I am a superhero lol. I was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time, but I know there are folks doing a loop of the local shops several times a day – they go to Aldi, little Woolworths, Big Woolworths, Coles, IGA, and then they do it all over again.
We have everything we need here already – though I did grab some extra milk and green capsicum enough for 3 weeks of pizza today – but it was a lot of hard work to make it so, and who knows how much risk was involved in that.
For some idiotic reason the supermarkets here turned off online shopping very early on when online shopping could actually be the answer to this whole problem – stop the people endlessly going to stores, stop those who are bulk buying toilet paper because you only deliver once a week to each address, and stop the risk of having to go out in the world among the other people. Protect the supermarket staff from all the germs, remove the cash from the equation..
But I guess the big brains in charge aren’t thinking outside the box.. :)
I do not have to leave the house again until Friday morning when I have to drop the parents car off to be serviced, but then it will be back here pretty quickly until we have to go and collect it later that day. I will update you again on the weekend!
