THERE are no upsides to the Covid-19 virus, but I have to say that, as one of those of a certain age told to self-isolate, I have had to adjust to how I get my daily newspaper.

My little trip each morning to the Co-op to get my National newspaper has been a habit since the first time The National was published. So this week I took the opportunity and with a degree of trepidation I navigated the joys of the internet and accessed and subscribed to the e-edition of my newspaper.

I have to tell you now that after two days of using the e-edition, I am absolutely delighted with it. Easy to access, easy to navigate and easy to read and adjust. You can even print from it. I do not know why I have not done this earlier.

When this virus is overcome and we are back to normal I intend to stay with it. When you work it out it is tremendous value for money.

Can I suggest all in my position – and even those who are not – give it a try!
