One last thing ...

Byline: SUNDAY, JUNE 14, 2020 ECHO 19 SUSAN LEE The ECHO's Print Editor tells it like it is ..

THIS week, I bought some cushions.

I know, that's probably the dullest thing you've ever read but, oh, reader, it was marvellous.

Yes, I had to queue to get in the shop, sanitise myself to death before stepping over the threshold and then navigate the one-way system.

And, yes, staff and customers wore masks and, in some cases, none-toopleased expressions. But I was in an actual shop, browsing in real life rather than online, chatting to other people face to face - albeit two metres apart - about whether that shade of green really went with the blue. It was the merest taste of how we used to live and it was bliss.

Yes, the experience was strange but, if this is the "new normal" when it comes to shopping, I'll take it.
