#69303 You gotta do what you gotta do mate, simples, we all have. I'm still out and about all over the country, but I'll have to have a rethink about doing it, two of my seminars have already been cancelled. This is just the start.

#69313 What you're doing is the best way to keep yourself and your family safe John,

Apart from isolation and obsessive hand washing, we're also leaving anything we have delivered in the porch for three or four days in case it's been handled by someone who has taken enough notice of biosecurity. Anything that can't be left is sprayed with a potent sanitiser I make myself.

Over the top?? I don't think so. With my wife's chest problems and my own reduced immune system, any exposure to a contaminated surface could be a death sentence for us and there are so many reports on the radio of people who blow their noses or cough into their hands and just carry on without realising that they could be contaminating everything they touch.

#69321 Hi John,
If it has to be done then so be it .. still better than a 6ft box as that is even more isolating :shock: :handgestures-thumbup: :obscene-drinkingcheers:

#69328 Bear in mind young men went to war and made huge sacrifices, you’ve been asked to sat on a couch for probably 12wk. Easy when put into prospective. Plus on the positive side, the weathers only going to get better
Stay safe JB , easy do it

Wife working from home
Daughter still working (hospital)
Lad still working on site , he has ashma but boss won’t send him home so he doesn’t need to pay him
My work going to close from Monday until further notice. I won’t be paid but if you ain’t got it you can’t spend it

#69371 There are going to be plenty of challenges ahead. In 36 hrs I will have completed my 14 day isolation since being evacuated from Northern Italy via France (as aircrew refused to land in Italy) after getting 1 day of my skiing holiday. 7 of us in 1 house has had its challenges but fortunately no symptoms yet. Stay safe everyone and remember - you have your Koi to entertain you - some poor unlucky people only have netflicks :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

Had an outing on Friday. Only managed a couple of hours due to the ice cold wind and forgetting my fishing suit.
Enjoyed it though, had about 5lb of skimmers.

#69395 This isolation is a killer I tell ya :eek:

My current routine is, have a lie in, get up log on, have a few calls with work, do some painting in the garden, finish up, get changed, head to penguins (man cave), drink lots of Carling and eat pork scratchings, come in and have dinner, go to bed, then repeat :handgestures-thumbup: :obscene-drinkingcheers: :lol: :mrgreen:

I used to pop out occasionally to shop, but now the missus has to do that as I’m one of the vulnerable :lol: so, here’s to more good weather :handgestures-thumbup: :obscene-drinkingcheers: :obscene-drinkingcheers: :obscene-drinkingcheers: :mrgreen:
