    Good morning Army!!

    Its back to a mass confusion.............we can't go visit Ma & Pa but their cleaner's and their gardener are allowed to visit and have a coffee after he's done his job. I can't nip next door for a coffee but their cleaner's allowed in.
    The pubs opened and lo and behold the rate of infection has soared in the 20-29 age group. I'm not a virologist but I'm not stupid.
    I'm tired of it all...........the thinking 'that we're all in this together' seems to have gone.

    But I have got a bulldog tapestry and a beagle tapestry to get finished to be made into cushion for Chrimbo pressies..............it stops my mind whirring.
    Tired of it myself, Jackie. And more tired of the fidiots that think that they shouldn't be "forced" to wear masks and keep a distance from others, etc., etc. My brother's ex-wife posted a lovely (not) article someone else had written -this is it - thought you might all find it interesting. Not at all my opinion, especially since we have 250 to 350 new cases every day here in Greece and if this keeps up 1) we're going for a second lock-down or 2) it's gonna bite us in the butt. By that I mean that most of us will get it eventually, symptoms or not. This is what she posted....

    Please, don’t look back 5 years from now & have to admit that you spent an entire year of your life wearing a mask, cooped up in your house & avoiding all the people you love. A year in your life that you’ll never get back.
    I am not saying this virus isn’t real, or that there aren’t people that could really be affected. If you’re at risk, take precautions, absolutely.
    BUT, we should not be forced to live in fear. We went from being a free nation to being told we couldn’t go to school, couldn’t go to church, couldn’t go to our grandmas house, couldn’t pay respects to a loved one through a funeral.... and when we were allowed to do these things, we were told how long we could be there, how far apart we have to be, what to wear....
    Yes, our health matters. But you know what else matters? Family. Friends. Church. School dances. Football games. County fairs. Family vacations. Neighborhood BBQ’s. Life.
    One day, you’ll hug your grandma for the last time. One day, your best friend will cry on your shoulder for the last time. One day, your son will play his last football game. One day, your daughter will wear her last prom dress. One day, they’ll have their last day of school. One day, you’ll spend your last day laughing with your Mama. One day, you’ll dance your last dance. Don’t waste the days you have by living in fear.
    Your time here on earth matters & God didn’t put us here to be afraid of everything He’s blessed us with. Live your life while you have the chance. God is gonna call you home when it’s your time. Virus or no virus.

    No consideration at all for the people who are mostly at risk - older people, people with health problems such as COPD or any respiratory illness for that matter. My Mother's companion who has two heart valves that need replacement but they can't operate so his heart only works at 40%. Yeah, at some point my grandkids will hug me for the last time but hopefully it won't be because some fidiot not wearing a mask or taking precautions to protect others, passed the virus on to me. FFS!

    Okay, rant over.

    I had a drinking dream a couple of nights ago. I had a really restless night and when I finally went to sleep I dreamed that I was trying to find some AL thinking that that would calm me down enough to sleep. I finally found a hidden bottle but realized that it was only 13oz and not enough to get me thoroughly pissed so I would have to find some more. That's when I woke up. Funnily enough, even when I have a real problem sleeping - it happens sometimes and I don't get more than a few hours sleep, I never think that if I had something to drink that would settle me. But my subconscious obviously is still wired to the old habits.

    In other news - the temps are supposed to go up to around 30-32C on the weekend so I guess the Satzy wan will have some nice hot weather to enjoy before she goes back home.

    Molls - it sounds like you had planned some really nice vacations - Cyprus, Canary Islands. Too bad you couldn't go but I'm sure you will get there eventually. As for Athens - if you ever manage a trip to our fair city, I would love to show you around.

    Wishing you all a day as good as you can make it.

    Jacks - we know who the beagle tapestry is for. The bulldog...?

    Re: International Army September 2020

    Enjoyed reading back everyone's posts very much and so glad Satzy is safe.
    Today I am pleased with myself. I have been trying to do my 7k walk every day. The loop I do has a nice steady hill in the middle of it which I slog away at so my cardio fitness will improve. I use a little app called 'map my walk' which announces periodically my walking speed in an annoying robot voice that I usually ignore. Today I realised I am about a 1 minute per km faster than before. So my 7k walk used to take me nearly one and a half hours, now it takes me an hour and fifteen minutes.. so clearly am making progress. I have also lost 25kg since I started about a year ago and my ankles don't hurt so much any more so the stretching afterwards is paying off. All of this makes me realise I might actually reach my goal of losing another 10k and celebrate by starting dancing lessons. I've thought about running but to tell the truth I'm scared of falling over. I am such a clumsy thing. I wonder if I can find a way to un-clumsy myself? Perhaps some dancing will help me get my coordination back.. might start looking for salsa dance steps on youtube.. hmmmmm.. I ponder on that and am off to bed.
    Nightski!

    Calling into say nighty night, luckily I checked so I didn't cross post with Molls, night nighty, pet.
    I actually watched Prime Ministers question time today and it was quite refreshing to see Boris get his arse kicked by the future Mr. JC..........KeirStammer.
    I also spoke with a cousin who was born with many health problems and slight learning difficulties. He's so down I had to put my big girls pants on and while I can't help with his health problems we ended up having a good auld moan and a few laughs.
    @fickle.........well done you. I wonder if that tracker would work on how many times I go up and downstairs because a) I've forgotten something b) I've forgotten what I went up there in the first place c) I've gone upstairs without stuff that I was supposed to take upstairs and repeat at leat five times a day.

    I like the salsa idea.......go on give a go......I went to belly dancing classes when the kids were little..........supposed to be a great way to get rid of baby bulge...........I couldn't move my legs for 24 hours without pain after each class.............so it must be good for you.
    Nighty night lovelies.

    Re: International Army September 2020

    Checking in from my phone.. pain. Electricity off here again, back in 30mins it says.
    Stirls, that post is v dangerous. I'm listening to a lot of different experts on the radio and sure, theres a lot of interesting ideas around herd immunity etc., but we need a vaccine first I think. We wear safety belts in cars, is it really that big a deal to stick on a mask?
    Some people feel very entitled, they cant see beyond their own needs.

    Super fickle. If you were here, I'd have you join my Fit4life group
    Dancing would be every bit as good as running.. I'm rubbish at dancing, being sober does not help matters either!!

    All getting a bit messy again JC. It's the fidiots and meejets that have to be told how to behave.
    Index finger needs a rest after that.
    Night xx

    Re: International Army September 2020

    Good morning everyone. Well done Fickle, just shows if you stick at something you can achieve results. I am back at Pilates, just finished a block of 4 classes. She is doing a lot more stretching this time and I am enjoying it more.

    Meeting two friends for coffee this morning. First time I have seen them since lock down so looking forward to a great catch up.

    Evening all,
    Mad busy day. But tomorrow is going to be great, half day for a hair appointment
    Watching Borgen on Netflix (I have subtitles and dubbing on!), its really good if you like politics and media. One character has a drinking problem..reflecting normal life.
