Ocado and Waitrose are both locking up. Waitrose sort of randomly (Probably load related), but Ocado is freezing you out unless you already have a delivery scheduled.

Seems like we have some serious supply chain issues beginning to surface.

About 40% of the businesses in town (Moreton-in-marsh) are either closed till the end of the month or are now operating under reduced hours.

Listened to the government update today - hopefully some of the interventions will help a bit. Financially, we can hold out for about 9 months - so a bit better than most, but it's pretty clear the shit-storm is just beginning.

On a happier note - Birdland in Bourton-on-the-water is remaining open for a while, so we can go hang out with the penguins for a spirit lift!

UPDATE: nope...Birdland now closed as well
