Re: #OneGoodThing #coronavirus #covid19

It is difficult to see too much good in this situation, especially as we are being urged to avoid company rather than seek solace in it. One possible benefit is time. Time to reflect and to address some of the things that perhaps we neglect or brush under the carpet when we are very busy. We are th...

Re: Coronavirus

Currently there is a danger of applying London appropriate measures to the whole country - calling for all construction sites to shut down because in London the construction guys use public transport is madness.

Re: #OneGoodThing #coronavirus #covid19

Started new job on Monday ( after just under 2 years of early retirement I was getting a bit bored and needed to widen my horizons ) and completed day 1 which was mostly admin.

Re: Coronavirus

While the supermarkets have been decimated by idiots panic buying everything from bog roll to flour, onions and sultanas, the smaller & independent shops in our local town still have pretty much everything available.

Cheers,
