Just when we were toying with the idea of putting off the shopping for another day as the milk rationing was working well, Suky's slightly runny eye over the last couple of days got much worse and she started to seem really off colour.
A trip to the Vets was quickly arranged and with clever social distancing everything has been sorted out. She is on antibiotics and eye creams to try and halt a bad eye ulcer, with a follow up visit destined for Thursday.
Anyhoo ... we decided while we were out we would carry on into Llanrwst and visit the Co-op for milk and bread. I'm glad we did it was deserted, completely unexpected for 11am on a Monday morning. I picked up a four pinter of milk, a sliced seeded loaf and two packets of buns along with the above pictured Co-op Frozen Meal Deal. I thought it good value for £5, it's all things we will eat and a delicious treat for Alan who had finished the last of his ice-cream over the weekend.
I also found this!!
There were a few on the shelves, but I was good and left the others to hopefully be shared out among people who need it more than I need a stash. Hopefully the country's flour situation will start to improve soon. Seemingly it is out there just in industrial sized bags not our little 1.5kg sized ones.
We also rather naughtily took Mavis out with us, it would have been too cruel to leave her at home on her own, taking Suky out in the car and not her ... so she came along for the ride. Alan took her for a mini walk while I waited for the Vet to bring Suky back out to the car park, and then while I was in the Co-op he strolled quietly around the distant bushy edges of the car park with them both on short leads. It seems to have settled her a little bit she was starting to go stir crazy.
