    Re: International Army April 2020

    Rant warning!!!!

    So this guy comes to our store to prepay an order. We have the door locked so people can't just walk in. I see he's not wearing either a mask or gloves. I put on both, unlock the door and ask him if can help him, but don't allow him in the store. He tells me who he is and gives me the details to cut the invoice which I do. Then I see he wants to pay with a credit card which means he'll have to come into the store and to my desk to do so. We have sold out of masks but I ask him to wear a pair of disposable gloves we have available, explaining that I need to protect myself. He says he understands completely because he's a doctor - a microbiologist!!!!!!!!!! FFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good afternoon from the garden! 10 more weeks to go in lockdown. Fed up listening and reading all the misinformation. Will go to WHO website. Just had my letter from Boris telling us to stay indoors. Cost 5 million I heard. Could have spent it better on PPE methinks.
    Feeling OK here!

    Evening everyone. Glad to be finished with work for over a week. Sometimes I am ok and other times worried and scared. Fear of the unknown I guess. Didn’t sleep well last night so feel out of sorts today. Better get food, that should improve things.

    Molly I guess it varies from we are ok to Arghh. I think this situation makes us evaluate so much.
    I seem to be swinging from a grumpy old woman to the kindest most generous of people. I think the grumpy old woman is winning.

    Surrounded by idiots does not help and if I hear anyone else say it is Gin or Wine O'clock I may not be responsible for my actions.

    (need a run!)

    Re: International Army April 2020

    Yesterday was a good day..............today started full of plans and yes the ennui set it...........a whole new world 'of what's the point'.
    I got a call from a friend who said 'you must get out for a walk'....................I didn't do that pre-virus I'll be buggered if I'm going to start now. I have a rather nice garden if I want to be outside.

    She actually rang to find out if it was okay for a bike ride............I haven't got a bike. Tbh I was a bit snippy with her.
    Mind you her son igot back to back in China a couple of weeks ago after a nightmare journey home..(feels odd that his home is China)....he got stuck in Hong Kong......not caused by the virus but engine trouble on his Virgin flight. Really weird that an English man is teaching Maths to Chinese students ( I thought they had that covered)

    @brit.........I'm sticking with WHO as well.

    And I still haven't got used to Mr. JC working in the back bedroom............I still bowl in there with groundbreaking news like the bloke nest door's brought the bins in and there's gammon for tea.

    Truly is one day at a time
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Evening,
    Do you like having him working at home @JackieClaire?
    @brit, hang in there. What about doing a strength and conditioning class via YouTube or something.

    Molly, any update on the job?

    Wondering how your mam is @satz123?

    Nothing to report here. Onto a couple of friends via zoom for hours and I'm exhausted now.
    Night all.

    Re: International Army April 2020

    Good morning everyone.

    It takes time to get used to them working from home but at this stage I am used to it. Zoom is great for the group meetings. I use FaceTime with my daughter but it is usually one to one or I hand the iPad to her Dad. Well our measures have become law, see a lot of cars being towed from around here. Tow company will make money.

    My highlight for the day is, I am going to colour my own hair. My neighbor does my hair so she is going to mix up the colour and leave inside her gate for me to collect and I will pay her by Revolut. The cut will have to wait. Crazy time! Hope everyone doing ok and that you are getting news of your Mom Satz.

    Re: International Army April 2020

    Evening All,
    The less said about today at work, the better. I'm still struggling with all the drama entering my home because I work here. I can see that everyone is anxious when they do need to go out these days. Terse and nervy. I'm predicting a huge rise in the incidence of agoraphobia at the end of this.
    How long do you think lock down will last? I asked my colleagues today and they all came in a the 6 month mark. I think they thought I that I am anxious to get back out there. They couldn't be further from the truth. Longer the better for me.

    You might get used to colouring your own hair Rustop. You can certainly save a lot of time and money. There's going to be a lot of man buns out there before the end of this.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?
