# Happy Friday.

# As my wife is classed as clinically vulnerable to Covid we do our grocery shopping online and get it delivered. It greatly reduces risk of infection.

When England went back into lockdown the public were assured that there was no need to stockpile as supply chains were robust and well stocked. Either people haven't been heeding that advice or the state of supply chains has been grossly overestimated.

The number of items unavailable for delivery has been increasing week on week with our latest order short to the tune of almost 30% of its value.

  1. We've noticed the increasing unavailability of lots of items at the supermarket where we do our weekly online shop. So we keep a cupboard stocked with tinned food so we can rustle together extra meals.
