Shielding treats in Wales

Lockdown in Wales has been a great inconvenience but absolutely essential, but some have had a taste of lockdown plus plus because of having a ‘shielding’ letter from the Welsh Government. I had lymphoma two years ago and even though I was discharged from the Haematology clinic in June, I was still included as a high risk person. For two months we did not go out of our front gate, but in June another letter came with some changes, notably being able to go outside to exercise but still keep to the five miles limit. Thank goodness for Sainsbury’s on line shopping, having priority arranged through local authorities, in our case Denbighshire.
I’m hopeless at cooking but I’m a dab hand with the vegetable peeler and can opener. My wife (and our two grown up children for that matter) is an excellent cook. Without her excellent cooking and baking I would not have survived the last three months, or indeed the last 54 years. One extra treat we had was a Welsh Afternoon Tea through the post from Daffodil Foods in Pwllheli. We also revived a habit from the 1980’s, an aperitivo of Martini Bianco with ice and lemon on a sunny afternoon.
When the five mile limit was lifted in Wales, on Monday 6 July, we went to Llandudno for a walk along the prom from the new lifeboat station to near the pier entrance and then had a drive thru KFC in the Junction!
