Saw a vehicle marked "Video Surveillance Unit" yesterday in our village.


Presumably you do know they weren't sent there by the government  to spy on your village, don't you?

Mike, saying what was seen. Absolutely no idea if related to the PM Statement or not.

Here's a clue. It wasn't.

I've been sticking strictly to the government guidelines and I know they're right to take this measure. I just can't believe things have come to this and can't get rid of this horrible feeling inside, it's like a stone inside me.  I wake up every morning feeling depressed and now I just want to cry.
I feel exactly the same  :'(
Before we went onto lockdown I felt so anxious at the thought of going onto lockdown.. Now it's happened there's a weird kind of relief in it.. But I just feel down =(

Have to get the car MOTd by next week.


My MOT expires on 29th April. Tried to book it for as soon as I was in the one month period, but local dealer couldn't do it until 6th April. At the time I booked it, there was no advice on social distancing etc so I thought no problem about driving my car there. Hoping they will collect and deliver, they didn't sound very reassuring when I phoned them yesterday.

After feeling stressed out about this situation I am telling myself there is nothing we can do about it other  than be sensible, this is me telling me, the sun is out today and it is beautiful, makes a whole lot of difference

My lounge is bare awaiting a carpet due to be fitted today, well it won't, all furniture out except 2 garden chairs we sat on last night, so we have no idea when the carpet or suite will return, one good thing is I don't have to hoover or dust the lounge, oh joy!!

If it stays nice I might just sit in the sun for awhile, I did manage to put plants out yesterday,  I know it won't be warm but hopefully I will get some Vit D

Try not to be down MrsS 2012, there is always Rootschat for a chat,  we have to be sensible

Take care

Here in Cyprus we had the lockdown you've been told to do for a couple of weeks but got stricter last night. We also have to carry ID around with us.

MOT - here they have extended the date for 3 months if your MOT is due under lockdown.

I checked the government website this morning - looks like they've only done that for HGV etcs here, not private cars - but it might change.

Mike Ashley has covered himself in glory and shown his class (once again) by proclaiming that his Sports Direct stores will stay open because they are essential to keeping the nation fit.
I'd say he wanted to keep them open for the simple reason that he is intent on carrying on lining his own pockets and everyone else can go to hell.
Thank goodness the outcry has forced him to change his mind.

Thank you Louisa  :)
Funny you don't think about the little things like MOTs etc. Obviously the PM has said only leave the house for work, food and medicine/healthcare which sounds straight forward enough but it's all those other important little things that we probably don't even think about!

I just hope that everyone remembers this after things get back to normal and boycotts his shops. He tried to profit from  a crisis, so hopefully it will end up hurting him where it hurts most.
