You Couldn't Make It Up.

The powers that be in Blighty Tweeted last night that people in Greater Manchester,  parts of Lancashire and parts of West Yorkshire can not visit their neighbours houses but you can meet them in the Mosque, Church , Restaurant or even the old rub a dub.  You could even go out of your county and meet them there.

Call me stupid.  But am I missing something?  I think I will go back to 'Portugal'my polytunnel and pot up some perennials.

  1. There have been even more changed since that announcement. Goodness knows how Wales will clamp down again now - we're full of tourists!
    In the greenhouse is probably the safest (and sanest) place to be!

  2. West Cork is full of tourists too. There doesn't seem to be anybody at the rudder at the moment. Perhaps having a gardening holiday at home is the most sensible thing to do the veg artist.

  3. I'm caught up in this. I just don't understand. My granddaughter is 4 on Sunday. We won't be able to visit her now.

    1. When I saw it you are still allowed to meet outside. It reads as not inside. Unless they have updated it as it is worse than they thought and if so the best thing would be to stay home.

  4. Hi Christina. I have friends that are in the same situation. We tell them to meet their family in the supermarkets, pub or maybe a day out to another county like Cheshire.

    Over here you can go in a pub that serves food and you can have a drink if you pay at least nine Euros for a meal. You don't need to wear a mask in there but you do in the shops. It all seems illogical.

  5. I think they have to do, what they have to do and if it is at the drop of a hat that you have to go back into lockdown then so be it. People need to stop moaning about it and as much as possible just stay at home. It isnt hard. Yes you cant see your family as much etc but not meeting inside a tiny terrace house front room is a good thing at present. I can only see that it will get worse. And all inside places that arent homes have people there to enforce the social distancing. Restaurants pubs etc they are all distanced. Inside someone elses home you might be in a 10x10 foot lounge stuffed with furniture and people. This is what they are trying to stop. people being crushed inside. Its common sense. So yes I do think on this occasion, you have missed the messages meaning. Meet outside, dont meet in a crushed front room. Social distance. wear your mask in a restaurant when you arent actually eating. its not rocket science. If people dont have the common sense to know what to do, then we will end up with a complete nanny state and no one will be allowed to go anywhere. We all need to just get on with it and all find our own little Portugal in our home or garden. It will be over at some point Dave, we just need to hold on tight till then.

  6. Thanks for your thoughts Sol. I think if they said meet in the garden or park would have been more sensible than meeting in a pub or restaurant with no mask. No wonder England is at the top of the deaths rate from Covoid in Europe. A country like Japan with twice the population has only just over a thousand deaths.

    I think it will go on for years and I wonder if I will ever see a live Rock band again. Thanks.

    Over here when we couldn't travel further than five miles. The airports and docks were still open for people to travel to England. Nothing seems to make sense.

    1. It would be better if they went the way they have in Scotland. and said ok we are rewinding to phase 2. and then everyone can go to the government website and refresh themselves on what they can and cant do. It is top-tastically sh!t at present this year is the worst. But we have to do what they say. It just shows by the resurgence of it that we cant get away from it, life is now changed. End of. Till there is a vaccine or it goes away as we stay inside more, this is how it will be. You can go out one day, boom, tomorrow you cant. As much as everyone wants to have a go at the government and the politicians, really at the end of the day, they just want as many people to survive this as they can. I want everyone to survive. I dont want anyone in my family to get it. I think we need to all have a level of respect for others as well. I have worn my mask all the way through this. I dont know if I carry it, I dont want to give it to anyone and anyone die as I didnt wear a mask and clean my shopping trolley or hands. My aim at present is to get through this will as many loved ones as I can. If that means I cant go into my neighbours house then so be it. I also dont think you will ever see a live rock band, at least not how it was. I think it will be seated the tickets will be 3 times as high and they wont let you stand, sing along or get out of your area. It is sad, but Dave, I would rather you were here and alive. We have live youtubes some of your bands are probably on there jamming.
      Be safe, be well my lovelies.

    2. Very good points JayCee. This time last year I was in Kent looking forward to watching bands at A New Day festival and drinking pints with two of my mates from Lancashire. Thanks for your thoughts Sol. Hope your house and garden improvements in Scotland are taking shape? I miss your posts.

  7. I have just read that cases are rising again in parts of England. I am worried that those of our residents who have started to travel across there now will be bringing it baack home with them and start off a new wave here.

  8. Yep. We share the same concerns here in Ireland JayCee. We live in very worrying times.

  9. We are getting stricter measures now and I am quite happy to follow the rules. Rumours are that we have the first case on the island. We are trying to find out if it's true.
    I don't want to catch it and I don't want any of my family to get I'll either .
    Some rules seem strange but we obey .
    Seems wild orgies, beach parties and wedding raves are the main culprits now. All forbidden of course

  10. Thanks LA. It's good to know how other countries are coping and dealing with it. I just wish there wasn't so much contradicting and one rule for some and not for another. I see people walking out of shops and taking off their masks. But they don't need to wear them in a licensed premises or a restaurant. It doesn't make sense.

  14. Boris Johnson must be Irish...to be sure, to be sure. Dress him in a leprechaun's outfit and he would look the part. With apologies to any leprechauns reading this comment.

  15. Ha,ha. If he was Irish he wouldn't have voted for Brexit YP. How did people vote for such a clown?

    1. They listened to the mindless chant dreamt up by Dominic "Never Say Sorry" Cummings: "Get Brexit Done...Get Brexit Done...Get Brexit Done". Of course it could never be "done" and now that COVID19 has come along Britain is truly up shit creek and the current captain of our ship is a supreme egotist. I refuse to call that twat "Boris" as if he was cuddly eccentric. To me he will always be "Johnson" with the name spat out like catarrh.

  17. Nice to know that there is someone else out there who has common sense because most people seem to have lost theirs.
    The poly tunnel is a good idea, I tend to get lost in a book, crochet, uke or anything other than the 'thing'.

  22. SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE IF YOU LOVE YOUR HUSBAND OR YOUR EX LOVER  . if I refuse to share this testimony it means I am selfish to myself and to the people I love so much whom might have similar problems, my husband left after a little misunderstanding and never came back home at first I thought it was a joke he left me for his mistress outside, all this happened September I am sharing this testimony because Christmas is around the corner and will be a very bad celebration if you don't spend it with your loved one's, so many men will live their wife and celebrate Christmas with their girlfriend, I complained to my very good friend she told me she had such problem in her marriage until she was introduce to DR PADMAN a specialist doctor who specializes in bringing back broken homes and broken marriages DR PADMAN  website: https://padmanspell.com/index-3.html  cast a spell for me in December 2nd surprisingly my husband came home December 6th apologizing that I should forgive him that this will never happen again.

Drying Onions On The Irish Riviera..

It's  supposed to go up to 18 degrees this week.  Time to roll up the trouser legs and put the knotted handkerchief  on one's head ...
