    1. Good on him! I’ll definitely give him a clap. I heard an interview the other day with a young man in just your son’s position. He enjoyed the camaraderie with those who’d had to make this hugely radical shift and was feeling positive, so I hope your son’s able to feel the same.

    1. We’ve never actually had a home delivery yet. I hear that the superhuman efforts of everyone involved have pulled the home delivery market up to 10% from 7%, so this isn’t surprising. But yes, they seem a great set of teams.

      1. They have been amazing . . . we are now on a vulnerable list and so getting delivery slots is relatively easy now. Thank goodness as we are also ordering for one of our neighbours.

      1. The message is loud and clear- stay home! Even though, here in Portugal, we are starting up again from 2nd May. No details yet but I don’t think we’ll be opening borders for a while.

  1. Snap! I too have a scarecrow today, but one from several years ago. Yours is fabulous! I haven’t even bothered to try and get home deliveries, last time I looked there were no slots for over three weeks, but my son in Doncaster has finally managed to get a click and collect slot for May 3rd. He is vulnerable as he has diabetes and other underlying health issues, but not vulnerable enough to appear on the govt’s list. Fortunately he has had a friend drop food off for him at the doorstep.

  2. A very cheerful scarecrow, when we all need cheering up. The food deliveries are so essential for so many, and those who go out everyday to provide this service are definitely owed applause and thanks.

    1. We don’t get a home delivery, but everyone says how cheerful and helpful these teams are. They start order-picking ( not the drivers, I guess) at 2.00 a.m. apparently, to maintain Social Distancing.

      1. That is an incredibly early start.
        We don’t get deliveries either – there are those who really need it more than we do. A few grocery stores offer it but I gather that the demand is so high that the lead time can be as long two or three weeks.

    1. We’ve never seen one either. Well, having read about the tsunami of demand, we never even tried. Milk and vegetables are all delivered as usual, and now bread too, so we’re managing pretty well. Hope you are both ok x

    1. Well, scarecrows is a misnomer in fact. But what to call them, in some way that is readily understood? Like scarecrows, they’re made of no-longer-wanted domestic items, and also rather like scarecrows, they’re no use at all in scaring crows. Go for it!
