:(

I'm getting low on supplies. I have enough food to last me another day, although it's not the type of food I fancy at the moment. So I've been toying with the idea of venturing outside, tempting myself with the thought of cheese and avocados...but I'm daunted by the fact that there's five flights of stairs to negotiate before I'm at street level. Although under normal circumstances, the supermarket's only a five minute walk away, today it seems to me as if it might just as well be on the moon. And even if I do make it there, I don't know how I'm going to carry all the stuff I need back home with me.

Maybe Mum was right, and I should have stayed at hers a while longer. Contrary to my expectations, this walking cast hasn't made life any easier for me.

ETA: Problem solved! My kindly downstairs neighbour's just offered to take me grocery shopping tomorrow -- I can load up the boot to his car with all the goodies I require, and he'll even lug them upstairs for me.

Yay neighbour!

It might be worth finding out (for future reference) if any markets in your vicinity deliver.

I discovered accidentally a few years ago that a few of mine actually did. Plus at one, you can phone in your shopping list.

There's only one supermarket in the Netherlands that delivers - but signing up for the service is a long and arduous process, and it isn't cheap either. I could make enquiries, but I'd be up and about again before I'd be in the position of actually placing my first order...

Just one!

I was so shocked I just inadvertantly kicked my dog.

She's not very happy with you.

Poor doggie! Please convey my apologies to her.

Hmm - not often I tell people they need a Tescos - but you do! When my friend broke her leg she just shopped online at Tesco - even here on our little island Tescos do online shopping and delivery.

We're lightyears behind on the rest of the world...
