  1. Poor man. Fingers crossed they can help him get better soon.
  2. I'll send the Deliveroo geezer over to Yakima Valley to get some
  3. Everyone outside tomorrow for a game of social distance Aunt Sally. There'll be a cold buffet supplied by the WI. Please state any special dietary requests.
  4. Oh that's HGs phone. He must be next to me in your contacts list
  5. I've lost my phone down the cushions can someone ring it? The ringtone is "I predict a riot"
  6. We have supplies at the moment (GP surgery Bucks). All routine referrals have now ceased. Some of the GPs are showing signs of increased stress levels but unlike secondary care we do have the luxury of closing our door for phone call screening and when patients do arrive they can enter the foyer and be screened again by intercom as to whether they have an appointment and usual questions about foreign travel/symptoms before they come in. Receptionists are pretty much exhausted at entire shifts spent on the phone repeating the same advice mantra over and over and often fielding abuse from callers. We are getting information from secondary care regarding cancelled outpatient clinics. At some points in the day it is impossible to contact any of the local hospitals as their phone lines are being used to full capacity calling patients to cancel clinics. Dermatology are asking us to simply send photos of rashes etc for advice, Neurology can often video call patients, Complex Needs clinics are suspended and Vague Symptoms pathway also, Cardiology are triaging back to us asking the GPs for more in depth information so they can only see the more urgent cases. Ladies giving birth can only have one person as a birthing partner (that may have changed to no one now I'm not sure) and no visitors for anyone obviously which must be hard for the families. General Surgeons sent a note asking us to limit prescriptions of antibiotics. Not sure what that means, maybe ckn does?
  7. Ooooh absinthe .........proffers glass
  8. How come you're all drunk already. Have you had a lock-in without me? And why is it so smoky in here? Where's the management?
  9. My daughter and kids are in isolation. She put the bins out this morning for collection. She said she has never done it so slowly before, the sheer joy of fresh air, hearing traffic and not listening to the kids bickering for just two minutes.
  10. Will I get a freebie Sunday for Mother's Day?
  11. 'Ere Landlord. The bloke on table 15 has taken the ketchup off all the tables and put them in his rucksack!
  12. Good idea. Lets just sit in the Winchester till it all blows over. [Lowers voice] Anyone want anything extra..........high quality stuff......masks, hand gel, 2 for a tenner as it's you.
  13. Reminds me of the team building session at work where we had to say something positive about ourselves. Mine was "well I'm not on crack so there's that"
  14. Same here. They could have at least held a referen...........oh wait
  15. Oh now I've had to Youtube Is She Really Going Out With Him and It's Different for Girls. Great old school stuff.
  16. As soon as the vaccinations arrive we get marched off to the nurses office to have ours so had it a few weeks ago. Supposed to be a bad one coming this year. Always have mine in case the kids get the flu and grandkids need taking care of.
  17. I have an estuary accent unless visiting wider family when we all seem to switch to cockney. I think we have more glottal stops and add in unnecessary Rs so "I don't known when we last saw each other" would become "sorr each other" and "not a good idea is it?" becomes "idear is it?". Hs are dropped so we have "Ave you seen er?" as is L so milk becomes miwk, syllables are also dropped so January is Januree and library is libree. R is also thrown aside so "park the car" becomes "pahk the cah". All just laziness really.
  18. My shoulders are tensed. Why would you say yeah, no? But I know they do.......arrrrgh!!!
  19. Advice and advise, practice and practise, effect and affect. Definitely could of and would of but the one that really makes me turn violent is pin number
  20. The vote!!! Don't be ridiculous. Next thing they will be asking if they can go out to work and demanding a front door key
  21. Love this. Very well cast. I watch on iplayer so thank god I can skip the annoying songs
  22. I've seen sets of half a dozen plastic egg shaped things that you use to crack the egg into, cook it, then put in fridge until needed. I agree with the rolling mentioned above though.
