Re: Coronavirus

LadyA,I forget,where are you located? Isn't it interesting how the lockdown is so variable? Im sure your SIL will be pleased to get his business going again. I'm in Rep of Ireland, Tweetypie. Fingers crossed all will go well. Our Health Service was on its knees before this, with outrageous waiting ...

Re: Coronavirus

Hope everyone is keeping safe! Here, our lockdown begins to ease tomorrow. Very very slowly and cautiously. It's going in phases of three weeks, lasting until the Autumn. First to be allowed open again are business that are mostly outdoors or where social distancing can be maintained. So, son in law...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Today's "reason to be cheerful" is that I only have another couple of face masks to make! I've made a stack of them for myself, mum, dau, grandson, step grandson, and now just have son in law's to do. Although I might be tempted to do a few spare. I've been experimenting with fabrics/combinations of...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

I am secretly enjoying this lockdown. Is that wrong? I'm secretly enjoying it too! I've never been able to spend so much time at home before, and am really enjoying it! My garden is starting to come together, all grass neatly mowed. And yesterday, I started clearing mountains of brambles, which hav...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

My mother, who is elderly, frail and disabled but lives alone, excitedly told me when I went in this morning "So, from Tuesday, I can go out for a 'no contact' walk. If I could walk!" :lol: :lol: Over 70s have been "cocooning" in their homes. I've told her that, weather permitting, I will take her o...

Re: Coronavirus

Aw, I'm so sorry, bym. And Hen Gen is right. It doesn't matter how old, frail or ill someone is, and it doesn't make a difference how long they've been ill. We're never really prepared.

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Aw, that's brilliant, Hen Gen! Well done, that ewe! Some tentative cheer here, because last evening, our Govt. announced a "Five phase plan" for reopening the country. We remain in lockdown until May 18th. After that, it goes in three week phases, because, the Health Experts say, it will take a coup...

Re: Weather

I spoke too soon! Yesterday felt downright cold, and we had very heavy rain. I had to turn the heating on last night. This Winter, I didn't buy any heating oil, relying on the stove backed up by electric infra red radiant panels. However, oil is so cheap at the moment, that I could fill the oil tank...

Re: Hello

Who knew you could make wine out of marrows! I think you can basically make wine out of anything. Whether you should, or would want to, is another issue! On my walks around home, I keep eyeing the gorse bushes speculatively. That wonderful coconut smell of gorse! I've been told that gorse wine is w...
