For s minute there Alban, I thought Vanita had treated you to a fly tying rotary drier 🙄

Steve
No such luck Steve its Vanita's it cost £60.A rotary fly tying drier would have saved £10 at £50. The drier will get its maiden voyage tomorrow.

First jigsaw finished tonight. It was a joint effort. Two more have been ordered for delivery early next week. They are time consuming and satisfying. I wonder how many we will do before the lock down is over?

I believe HMQ is addressing the nation tomorrow so remember to get out your Union Jacks and have a virtual wave.

Morning all, washing about to be put out on the repaired washing line our new spare is in the garage never to be used . Plans for the day go for our walk this afternoon whilst the chicken is roasting. I see our Mark has gone into hibernation again (take care Mark ) .

Morning guys.
Breezy out there and waiting for temp to rise, need some rays. :cool: ☀
That wasn't a good shopping experience! Just managed a Morrison's online shop (my mother's fault as she likes Morrison's), should be delivered tomorrow between 16:30 and 17:30. Still have an Aldi shop tomorrow to do, just hope they've got in what we need (unlike Morrison's though might have been better in store). Trying to do only one supermarket shop per week.

Rang dad this morning. He now saying he thinks he may have had a stroke???????. Had to take him some paracetamol up(prescribed to him). He was asking for a comb so I took one I found in my tying room(yes I sterilised it first). They are going to do an online/phone call tomorrow. Last place he needs to be is in hospital.

Afternoon all
It's bright but chilly here not really sitting out weather. That hasn't deterred thousands of idiots determined to get out into the country side and sea side. We had another Ocado delivery and quite a number of items were missing. We can ring them up on Wednesday to see if there is a free delivery slot.

The new rotary dryer has had a spin and clothes were dry in next to no time. Wonderful.

Not sure what my neighbour is doing but he seems to go out in his car at least once a day. He is over 70 and not in the best of health. Very strange. He has family come round now and again. He obviously does not know what sta at home means.

I’m afraid my dad is well into his eighties, has all sorts of medical problems that put him well into the very vulnerable group, and despite still having all his marbles and being very intelligent he just refuses to accept the current situation. I’ve told him time and time again on the phone that he should not be going out at all, but he just carries on as normal!

I don't believe it are rules for the ministers and rules for the public? Below is a quote from the press.

Scotland's chief medical officer is under intense pressure to resign after police issued her with a warning for visiting her family's second home and flouting her own public advice to stop all but essential travel.
Iain Livingstone, Police Scotland's Chief Constable, said officers spoke to Dr Catherine Calderwood about her breaking the official restrictions on movement during the coronavirus pandemic and "issued a warning about her future conduct".
The extraordinary move came after Dr Calderwood issued a grovelling apology but failed to resign after being photographed with her husband and three children near a coastal retreat in Earlsferry, Fife.

My mother came walked round this afternoon, it was her exercise and first time out for over a week. I let her sit on chair on my drive and I stood in the back garden with the gate open, social distance maintained. Turned out not the weather to sit out and soak some much needed rays. ☀

What's the saying Alban? Do as I say, not as I do!

Evening guys, just watched the Queen’s speech it feels like Christmas but without the family.

Been in the garden most of the day so didn’t need the exercise of a walk, looking better but still lots to do. Some friends of ours got us some shopping yesterday & also got us some trays of pansies so some of those have gone in.

Still lots of idiots going off for picnics & socialising, I can see a full lock down coming, they just don’t seem to get it, the NHS has enough problems without them adding to it.

Keep safe all of you.

The younger generation won't know what has hit them if the government imposes Martial law.

The news tonight says that Doctor Calderwood has resigned. It was the only right thing to do under the circumstances. I didn't know about Stephen Kinnock Noel. The news also says that our PM Boris has been admitted for tests as he is failing to make a full recover from the CV illness. They are playing down the situation saying it is not a serious. I have a feeling it may be more serious than they want the public to know. Someone I know is a long distance runner in a local club. Apparently they have been out on the streets this week clocking up 45 miles in the name of exercise. This cannot be right they are pushing the boundaries and breaking the Rules.

Morning all
Bright sunshine but a very chilly breeze. I don't think we'll be sitting out today.
The organization who manages our estate have sent a magazine stating the landscape gardening company contracted to maintain the estate has closed down. It looks like I'm gardening having given most of my equipment away. Our communal garden areas are quite big. The family who I gave my Flymo to won't let me have it back as they are in lock down.
