Well my sister's fella is making very small steps in the right direction. From being described as as near to death without being dead, he's now sat up, off dialysis and yesterday was breathing on

My great fear now that this lockdown is in force... mullets and bowl cuts.

Just think of the children.

We children of the 70s and before can attest to the horror of such things and are truly thankful that the internet and mobile phones with cameras didn't exist.

All the bog roll has been delivered to Waitrose in St Leonard's, all the counties supply.

I will give that ten minutes, the pop up to Asda while Gingerjon looks for a Waitrose within 25 miles of here

Here's the specific guidance.

Including:

"hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts, campsites, caravan parks, and boarding houses for commercial/leisure use (excluding permanent residents and key workers)."

So I guess folk will be turfed out in the morning whether they have anywhere to go or not.

It just says 'work' in there.  Other things say key workers.  

I'm guessing more clarification (again) on the way...

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Quick query, not seen anything commenting on this... 

What if you're currently away from home? I've not seen anything to suggest hotels, guest houses, etc. have to shut. I know some are however, but is it to be enforced? 

Are people supposed to head home immediately? 

Our son is in Leamington - as he was working in a spoons until Saturday (cleaning, last customers were Friday) so the plan was for him and his last remaining house mate to sit it out a week/10 days then early next week (which coincides with an end of month) she would head back to Liverpool and him home to us - leaving all there gear in another set of mates house until the end of summer when they have next years house booked from - that would save a few months rent and get him back with us (where he would have a better internet connection for uni work)

 

Now not sure what is happening

I think it will be clarified as they go.

Maybe they expect to keep the coffers filling by fining folk. They could make millions each day by standing in front of City firms where the Partners think their law/accountancy firms make them "key workers", £5k a pop billed directly to the firm.

HR not essential enough? I got a call today from my Mental Health worker, working from home today.

I'm still not sure whether my landlord will still evict me on 02.05.20 as his Section 21 has requested.

When there are Skype meetings now, there is lots of fun with the women finding out how each others hair colour and style is naturally.

But sadly, school photos did. I try to pretend I was looking for a Johnny Ramone look but was really my mums bowl. 

You tell the kids today that and do they believe you?

I think (only think) that driving is safe. But, it is hard to trust that people are really going to stay in the car and not meet up with people. The rules have to be easy to police too.

Last week, I drove to forests and emjoyed splendid isolation. But, were I stopped on the road, coudl they believe my claim? Safer to make m ehave to justify why I was out at all.

Its about non essential journeys, being in the car in and of itself isn't going to Spread the virus, but, what if you break down, what if you have an accident.

 

Just stay in unless you have to.

John Ashworth (a reasonable Labour MP thus excluded from ever being its leader) is raising the question about whether the curfew applies to the construction industry. Unless I hear anything different, I'm going to Barnsley tomorrow.

Official answer.

I'm sure there will be things put in place for the self employed. Should have been done earlier and given higher priority, of course.  However, the number of initiatives already taken in a very short period of time is huge and it'll take a huge admin exercise to get all of those up and running. 

I thought they might have introduced help for self employed today but the new isolation rules etc have  had to be brought in.

Maybe tomorrow.

Text from a post from my Dad on Facebook. Some people are going to suffer here more than others. 

It is with heavy heart that we have closed the Pontefract Food Bank immediately. Following the guidance of no more than two gathering we would be unable to operate. We will keep the situation under review but as Trustees we have responsibilities to clients and volunteers to operate safely.
