Comment: Hi Ellie. We spent 20 days straight inside... then I couldn't take it anymore... ran out of 1/1 and 1/2 for my coffee, and mum run out of bananas (about 10 days in to the 20 at home).... so I ran out yesterday with my mask - we have a beautiful masks that were handmade for us by a wonderful swapping partner here on swap bot. I do not have gloves, have never been able to find any. But I carry baby wipes and wipe down my hands frequently while shopping and before I get in the car. We have been watching, Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. All of which I had prior to the quarantine. I am glad to hear you are safe and keeping busy. Stay well... it's almost over :-)
Comment: Have the dust bunnies left yet? You know they multiply don't you! Stay safe!
