It was a bank holiday yesterday.

Out of politeness I will answer but a little rude of you to ask.

I always carry my sales file and samples in the car so always ready to work plus customers ring me often even when I am on a ship or foreign country and I will help them.

Some people ask me to post photos like I do when we go to the beach so a little upset with your attitude.

 

Graham. Your attitude is fine, your photo's of you and Pauline eating your McDonalds breakfast are fine. In fact when you don't post them I often wonder if you are eating proper. Hope you are nearly fully recovered and hope you ignore nasty comments. The moment we are allowed to be out and about we will be off.

I don’t want to upset anyone least of all you - one of the most pleasant and helpful members here. But I am confused! On one hand you say you’re working but then point out that yesterday was a bank holiday! But that’s all beside the point really. I just echoed the comment made by another member - something about the wisdom of making such a long journey in the circumstances we find ourselves in! You can’t blame people for asking legitimate questions! 

Thanks.

85 miles down the motorway to get there is nothing to me as a very experienced driver as is the drive home.

I am expecting everywhere to be in tier 4 from December 30th coupled with an eye operation I am booked in for early January it might be our last opportunity to go to that great outlet for a long time.

How lovely to have breakfast in bed. Pauline spoils you 🤣

No snow here in West Sussex and I am just grateful my morning walkies with Freddie was, for once lately,  not in the rain.

Thank you.

I hope you had a nice Christmas.

Best wishes for your op - I really hope it goes ahead as planned. As for the entire country going into Tier 4+, I think that’s the only sensible thing to do. Avoids confusing rules all round.

For the first lockdown I never drove more than 3 miles and Pauline and I worked from home.

The rules are confusing.

Looking at the shadow, does he drive a minitrain?. I always wanted to be a mini train driver. Tell him not to stop for a coffee. That's bad 🤣

Best wishes for your eye operation Graham, I am still waiting for another appointment to replace the one cancelled in the Summer.

We are only about 15 miles from the outlet but rarely go there, York is where we do our main shopping but mostly in town in normal times.

Our favourite supermarket is on the edge of the City and that's has far has we go at the .moment.

Sadly Son in Law has it.  As a family we have been so careful.  I haven't seen them,  close up for months and months.

 

He works indirectly for  Border Force, so had to drive , often with a Police Escort, around where the Dover 'lorry stack' was.

 

Its a shame when they were so careful indoors, even their  teenage daughter  took herself up into the loft extension for 7 days when someone in another part of her sixth form got it.

 

Luckily he isn't too bad.  They followed every rule they could but having to work is probably what got him.

Thanks Eric.

The eye Infirmary is for eye problems only so hopeful it will go ahead and be successful.

I hope you get your appointment rearranged soon.

Sorry to hear that and hope he makes a fast recovery.

He serves as a reminder to us all how easy this can/could be caught. He like our son 

has no option but to go out there to work and for them who can work from home should do so.

This close to getting our vaccines is simply not worth the risk.

Your teenage daughter is a shining example to us all, she thought of others first, she could have gone out with her mates ,shopping etc . You should be proud of her, she did right by you all.:classic_smile:

To be honest I am in no hurry to go anywhere near the hospital at the moment, unless it is essential.

Hopefully he will make a fast and full recovery and your family don't catch it off him.

We have got up to more snow falling, it is only light so hopefully it won't stick because I can see that it looks like some of yesterday's snow has already melted.

I awoke this morning to find it had snowed overnight. Only a light covering, but the sky is clearing and the snow is slowly beginning to melt. Still bitterly cold though🥶

I believe it was at an eye appointment on November 2nd that I caught it as we had been nowhere else before symptoms started on November 6th.
