Speaking of which: O.K.'s colleague had his coronavirus test results - and he is negative!! This means that O.K. and I can spend the weekened together. Because of public transport still being a risk that can easily be avoided, he will pick me up here tomorrow and then drive to his place with me - not be most environmental friendly way, admittedly, but this is truly an exception.
We won't be visiting anyone, or have visitors at the cottage. The original plan "before Corona" was to host the family lunch on Easter Sunday, which has always been at O.K.'s sister's in the past years; we wanted to return the favour for a change and had already planned the full meal, with leg of lamb and all the trimmings. But we can always do that some other time, can't we.
Yesterday, I went shopping, having run out of fresh fruit, salad and dairy products. For the first time since "all this" has begun, I had to wait outside my local supermarket because there were already a certain number of customers in the shop. It wasn't very long before I was allowed in, and then I only bought the essentials, of course ;-)

With the warm weather and (mostly) sunshine, and the occasional neighbour walking by, it was rather pleasant; different from what we would normally do, but still nice. It was good to see both my parents "in person" (as opposed to on the screen of my mobile phone or my ipad), and they are in good spirits.
