True to say that people will be going out of business all over the UK; I feel desperate for them, and those consequently who become unemployed, including those involved with theatre and panto, but the damned virus does need people to make it spread.
Good point about the catering industry needing time to sort out their orders. Times are hard enough without being forced to pay for produce they can't then use.
As to visiting out of area, surely it makes no sense for people under moderate or severe restrictions to be allowed to visit areas which are not under special measures. The best way of spreading the virus is for infected people to visit the other end of the country in the way that Dominic Cummings did!
Truly I despair.  :'(
I am glad to know Jeff is finding the strength to tidy the garden. That kind of work is rather meditational I think, and hopefully offers some solace.
A full day for Ankerdine.... I hate being smothered in cigarette smoke, so I am not surprised you were upset by it.  :'(

Tackled the French windows in the kitchen today.
All the nooks and crannies ,frames ,glass etc,then  hung the winter curtain .it is double glazed ,has blinds but still a cold spot ,so the curtain helps .
Ordered from Flash Harry’s Mummy ,Body Shop catalogue ,some pressies.
Most for down in Suffolk  so will be distributed  down there.
Books ordered ,but they will come here and join those I got  for birthdays and not yet delivered!
Postage will be sky high as  and  when .
Sent a copy of a photograph to my friend today ,taken in 1961on a trip from the hairdressers ‘ .I did not not go to a hairdressers .I wore mine in a French pleat.It was a meal out.I went with a friend.
Well it was where the M1 was being made,Chorley I seen to remember.
Well it was like taking women to the Wild West ,great big navvies !
Some still had their wellingtons on!
Didn’t like it when you refused to dance with them,so my friend and I spent the best part of the evening in the Ladies .
We were frightened to death our husbands would find out ,so we sort of stuck up for each other.
Found the photograph when looking for one my son  wanted of my Moped he has just completely renovated ,to make sure he has all correct..I used to go shopping on it to the big out of town Supermarket,with my daughter in
a seat .That was in Belgium.
Safe,as I could legally use the cycle paths .
So I sent a copy of the photo of us I found to my friend and we laughed so much thinking how much we did not enjoy it.

Well ladies, stricter measures, why can children go to school but not  to  their 
grannies?
People just do not understand.

Had cleaned the fridge really well for delivery on Tuesday.
All packed in,but last night ,getting milk out for a cuppa the door storage ledge fell off.
A bottle of milk, lemon juice, a jar of olives ,a small jug of milk so I had a bottle to put out ,all smashed on the floor .
So all cleaned up ,broken glass stuck in my slippers.so they have been binned .( they were overdue for binning!)
 Had not put the ledge back  properly.
Well  time for another cuppa ,
 Cheerio folks ,look after yourselves .
“ See you “ tomorrow no doubt.
Viktioria.

You pack so much into  a day, you must go to bed exhausted

Hope you picked up all the shards, don't walk about barefooted just in case

Perhaps father Christmas will bring  you a new pair of slippers if he allowed out at Christmas time

I've got a feeling we'll all be in Lock Down (or Loch Doon, in Scotland), because of School holidays, also most Car Factories and Building Trade usually shut down for long holidays in December.

 ... at 9.15 I’ve a nice dress on ( over my jumper and trousers) , necklace make up and a glass of wine...

 ... tipped the wine back into the bottle after toasting him... not a drop passed my lips..

 ... I dress up again pour another glass of wine... I tell you I’m sorely tempted to drink this one... but I pour it back into the bottle...

Caroline

Hello Caroline and All

The wine and at 9.15 too, has been noted ;D  ;D

Just poured a glass (well half a Mug) of White Australian Reserve Wine (From Aldi and quite palatable too  :) ) ... I've left the dress bit out though (over my shirt and trousers)  ;D

Take care all, Mark

Aha,only yesterday prior to the accident I ordered a pair of slippers ,German.
Wool lined with Worishofer( ?) foot bed.
Washable at 30degrees.£19-99.
Will come in a day or two,
I  have  loads of slippers - a slipper fetishist !
That  was  admirable foresight don’t you think.

I am not getting notification of posts re the Diary ,have to go through  unread  posts.

Just looked in on’”Summer Holiday” —— Oh my laws, what a load of rubbish !
So over to Mrs .Brown .
I have just cried laughing ,but can’t tell you  :o
He / she is going to slim tonight.
His/ her sister in law is going out tonight ,her husband is taking her for tea and biscuits ,she will have to give blood first though  ;D ;D ;D ;D
Cheerio.
Viktoria.

Well ,a bit earlier to bed tonight .

Can't fault you for the vino Mark, Aldi does some decent ones. And great Christmas cake too when it comes to buying time.  :)
Pleased to hear you gave the dress a miss, but if it's good enough for Grayson Perry......   ;D

Viktoria, love the tale of you and the terrifying navvies!  ;D ;D

Aldi’s Ferrandiere Cabernet Sauvignon ,a lovely spicy finish .
I hate dry oak/ tannin finishes .
This one is lovely .
And I don’t like reds usually .
Not dear either.

Well the navvies ,far from home if they had homes ,many Irish ,and to be fair they had every reason to think we were as many other women’s outings there obviously were .

Only we weren’t .Well my friend and I weren’t .
I think we were naive though .
Even at 24 ,we really were .
We felt deceitful but were worried our other halves would some how find out.
We had no way of getting home so had to wait for the others and the coach,
We have laughed so much since but never did we let our OH know.
Different times .
Viktoria.

Viktoria, Glad you've had a laugh at what you've been watching.

Roobarb, I like the 'Specially Selected' Chocolate Cake every week or two, I cut it into 4 and have a slice a night  :)  :)  It is the same cake our Coop sells in a different box their cake is dearer. No G P, my Wife wants a Man  ;D

If I said to Mrs P a year ago, I'd look like a distinguished Dentist when out  ;D  ;D , she'd of thought he's crackers! No Aston Martin though  ;D  ;D
