    @brit.........

    Spoke to the S&H this afternoon and managed to keep from crying..........they are home to a whole new world. He'll be on 80% wages for the next three months not sure what his missus will be getting but they've got savings. They got a hire car from Manchester and managed a shop at an M&S......would you believe at a service station..............apart from reeling from the cost, they'll be fed for over the weekend. They can hoard the pilchards and quinoa.
    Once they've got over the jet lag we'll talk properly.

    Mr JC managed to get all th shopping for his Ma & Pa including the wallpaper paste.

    And trying to put a smile on my face................. SIL is starting a group zoom/face time or whatever its called. I'll be waving from behind the settee.

    Will Boris be isolating with Prince Charles? I'm sure they've plenty to chat about during their confinement.

    Molly, your management team need taking out the back and smacking around. Our libraries all shut this week until further notice - and we're known for under-reacting. Please write them a formal email registering your concern at their lack of action in reference to public health guidelines and the definition of essential services Vs Work Health and Safety guidelines. Keep a copy of it at home.

    My workplace is now closed for all staff and students. I believe that the call came too late for us to ever have confidence in executive management again - not that I ever did. I am so glad that I made my own decision for my health and the health of my family - and threw the gauntlet down to them. There is enough chance that I will contract the virus while fetching groceries for my parents without additional probability/possibility coming in to play.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    I'm just so glad that all your babies are making it home in one piece, although in your case @brit - only just!

    Glad all the babies home. More measures brought in here tonight so myself and Molly might be home next week. Am sure my place will stay open but not sure that admin staff will be needed. Have to wait until Monday to find out. Only silver cloud is you can walk within 2km of your home so once again the woods will keep me sane.

    Evening all,
    Great the kids are home You can all sleep now.

    Really hope they cop on now Molly, they can hardly make you go in with the new measures tonight??
    And @satz123, its really honorable that you are going in to the nursing home, it may not be deemed 'essential' on paper, but you play a big part in keeping the place running smoothly. Remove that role and it will put pressure on someone else who might take a shortcut with PPE or skip washing etc..

    Like you Rustop, we manufacture active pharmaceutical ingredients, so unlikely to close.. my job has not slowed down, but no commute and I can work in my PJs!
    Bridge - whats your work wear like this week??

    2k running loops now!

    @paulywogg - good for you getting straight back on the wagon. Its been said here a few times, AL didnt get us and this virus is NOT going to get the better of us either.
    The big thing now is everyone drinking together on zoom/facetime.. (Mollys idea of HELL ), the rate of home drinking is going to go through the roof!

    I may well post something about that. I have put forward that all Zooms have to be done in fancy dress. They're getting back to me......

    I'd like to know what you're wearing too.

    Hola everyone. Hope all are going ok.
