I've had two jobs cancelled or postponed so absolutely nothing..not been out of the house in days but I do have a cold so ....
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

One of my clients cancelled their appointments with us for the foreseeable future due to the current circumstances, I presume the couple had just watched Boris's scaremongering speech on the six o'clock news, I expect more to come :(

You need to wash it more regularly now while singing Happy Birthday.

With everyone self isolating that’ll be the next crisis, no car shampoo as everyone takes to washing their cars and doing the garden

Can these places afford to shut down for 2/3 months ? It almost feels like prohibition era USA...stop anything that is fun and keeps you sane but you still have to work.

It seems they will get compensation now that they have been ordered to shut.

If this goes on 2/3 months I can see the murder rate climbing as we spend 24 hours a day with "loved" ones...Justifiable homicide in some cases maybe.

Given it was practically the first dry and almost sunny day of the year, in the land of seemingly perpetual rain, this afternoon I took the opportunity to get a coat of primer on the new garden gate and cut the back garden lawn. The first time it's but cut since last year so it was bloody hard work and perhaps a machete would have been easier than a Flymo :roll:

It has been much drier up here Cat, consequently I've cut our lawns four times this year. Been in the garden for four hours today, now I'm suffering with a hot water bottle on my shoulder :)

Took the dog for a 2.5 mile run through the woods, trying to get fitter and loose a bit of weight during the isolation. Cut the back lawn for the first time this year, took the dogs for a walk with the wife, had dinner and now watching films

Quite a nice relaxing day really

Walk on the beach this morning, then a takeaway chip butty from the Bay Hotel before heading back from North Yorkshire to the Peak District. Lit the fire, got the house warm, and listened to King Crimson.

It seems we have a postcode group set up to make sure everyone is ok and can get the essentials, so I'll link up with them tomorrow. The local shop is being treated sensibly, fortunately, and several local businesses have chipped in to help.

Looks like decent weather coming up, so will get out for some long walks in the next few days.

When I moved to Cardiff in 1992 the amount of rain we get took some getting used to Mrs64. Up until then I had always lived on the eastern side of the country (York, Lincoln and Herts), so was used to it being somewhat drier.

I'm sure for the first month I was here it was cats and dogs :rain: every day. However, the people at work said if you think it rains a lot here (Pontypridd) it rains twice as much again at the top of the valley, like Treherbert. I swear they're all born with webbed feet !! It's like a series of mini micro weather systems as you go up the valleys.

However, as I've now lived here longer than anywhere I'm sort of used to it. However, that's not to say I like it :roll: :)
