There's a petition going round to try to stop schools being reopened before it's safe. How anyone in government thinks small children can be expected to do social distancing is beyond me. Those in charge must have come from a different planet...
A bit of good news for once! My local intensive care unit is at the Royal Gwent in Newport - they have been the worst hit hospital in Wales and have been having a really hard time.
Not only are things improving a little- but yesterday the first covid case they admitted way back when has been discharged. He has gone home to his wife and four children.
Anyone else got a trembly stiff upper lip?
Yes it makes me mad, how on earth can social distancing be practiced in games like Footie & Rugby, I would like to see how anyone can tackle another player and keep 1.5 metres apart. It's absolute madness, the problem is Australia is too sports mad and common sense becomes a casualty.
What is so hard to understand is that football is allowed to take up again but two pilots in seperate planes kept in seperate hangers were fined for breaking social distancing rules for breaking the ban to allow them to do an Anzac Day flyover. As OH made the point, they would have to be ***** good pilots to fly closer that 1.5 metres apart.
Anyhow they can have their football as I’m not one bit interested in it. They’re all overpaid anyway. They only kick a ball around.
We are allowed to get some retail therapy tomorrow so I’m off to get some new clothes. If, of course I can fight off the other tracky dack, hoody wearing granny’s. So tired of looking like a house wife, needing a haircut and looking like a dag.
Good news. Our LGA is now virus free. The last patient has now been cleared. All the same our fingers are crossed.
Perhaps equipment modification = clown shoes!
OH is moving into my little study. His department are supplying him with pc and monitors, finally, to enable him to work from home. So.... all my folders and tree charts and copies of Wills and service records and photo albums are all going into several big boxes for a while. In short, I have to move out.
My favourite coffee that has been out of stock everywhere since March has just appeared on the doorstep (online bulk purchase). The day just got better.
Bet you look gorgeous Sue x
Now that is bureaucracy gone mad, I hope those pilots appeal those fines, or even better get the story on TV, a programme like 60 minutes or The 7.30 Report, let's have some idiots with red faces.
I certainly do.....
Just dont get caught in the background whilst he's going live.....
I think BH should just keep wandering by clutching a biscuit
I was more worried she may stroll by after popping out of the shower.
Now that is more likely.
My daughter was in an important conference call a few days ago, with clients, when her ragdoll cat decided to use the litter tray nearby. Ten minutes of frenzied digging and thumping about and she had to confess what was going on.
I've just paused by my study. It looks remarkably tidy now. I don't recognise it.
We have all seen some funny things going on behind the scenes on these video calls. We watched a weather man last night presenting the weather forecast from home and his golden retriever decided to get in on the act. Last sight of the dog was his gorgeous snout right into the camera.
Or maybe keep wandering past with various exotic and unusual items....
Report in a local paper today.
A couple who decided to come on a day trip to Cornwall was sent back to Surrey an hour after they arrived.
The lockdown flouters drove 265 miles to St Ives today and were asked to turn around by officers who were patrolling the town.
It transpired that the couple had driven 265 miles from Surrey for a day trip due to forthcoming exam pressure and thought their trip essential.
Both were issued with COVID-19 penalty notices and immediately decided to cut their outing short and return home.
