    Night lads. More fencing to finish in morning. Not sure what I’ll do with the dozens of brownie points I’m building up

    Just a heads up The Ministry of Defence have been told to be on standby for complete UK lockdown as of Sunday evening at 6pm... No one is to leave their home's unless you work in Front Line Retail or the NHS...

    I heard this directly from my neighbour Trigger who is best friends with a guy called Boycey. Boycey knows a guy named Del who drinks down the pub with his uncle Albert. Albert was in the Navy during the war so knows his stuff.

    While my girls were growing up, home and away was part of their daily life. That damn character Alf seemed to use that line constantly. Is it widely used in reality

    Yep! So are a lot of sayings that people think are simply stereotypes of aussie slang, but, fair dinkum, they do. The most famous would be "G,day" as well as strewth, bonza, coming the raw prawn, arvo, sanga and a lot of others.

    Extremely quiet where I live...

    Only went out myself to deliver food to the old folks and the roads were empty and just the odd person walking about.

    Seems though looking at the news that gatherings are still happening in other parts of the country. Means we'll be forced to stay home soon as people are obviously not listening.

    Where are you Jammy?

    Everywhere quiet in the Dales. A few walkers who are being sensible.

    It's the supermarket where the risk lies up here! You can't get supplies without joining a crowd! Deliveries are very delayed and people only getting bits and pieces of what they ordered.

    No known cases in my town just yet but you get the feeling it's all around you!

    Agree about the supermarkets.

    Before anyone thinks I'm a namby pamby it's not that I'm scared of catching the virus, it's more I don't wish to be a burden on our NHS and I have elderly parents who need me about so they can stay home.

    Flaw in the system
    We only wanted. 2 bottles of milk son in law nearly had a punch up in Morrisons management Wetherby to get them no doubt
    He also wanted 2 for themselves
    What did they expect him to do buy for himself put it in the car then go back for our 2
    They must be joking
    Afraid the government need to get agrip
    It’s alright asking people to do shopping for those in isolation but to then subject them to abuse is xxxxxxx ridiculous
    Still waiting to see what they are going to do for the self employed
    There are many things which have not been thought through properly<steam>

    It's just how it is 2p I'm afraid.

    Had a wholemeal loaf for my folks and a white one for my family and was only allowed to purchase one.

    Guess I could have gone back in and used another check out but it just wasn't worth all the queueing for a lousy loaf of bread.
