    Thank you for your good wishes.

    I’m in N.Ireland, up on the coast and at present we have less than 5 diagnosed cases and no fatalities in the region. However, everything is in readiness and procedures in place. Grim viewing as my bed was wheeled from A&E to ward.

    The Cardiac Specialist at A&E on Friday joked I had picked the right time, two weeks ahead of the curve.

    Quite empty as non urgent cases released so staff are plentiful and very friendly.

    Just waiting since 8pm to go to theatre so hopefully speak again and good luck to everyone.

    Those face masks are only any use if you have the virus.

     

     

    My one protects from the virus. It’s a FFP3 class respirator which stops airborne virus and is recommended by the World Health Organisation.

    You need to wear a face mask whether you have the virus or not, I don’t know who spreads these rubbish rumours about things like ” it’s only for those with the virus”, I wish people would check facts before just posting the same incorrect statements circling social media!

    Unless you have been tested for the virus and been given the all clear and since the test not had contact with anyone or anything that could pass the virus on to you then you may be carrying it without any symptoms and passing it on to the unsuspecting public by just breathing, wearing a face mask would greatly minimise this.

    It’s government who spread the BS about mask simply because both Lab and Tory have let manufacturers over the decades move production to other parts of the World for cheap labour and overheads and now with Germany, France and some other EU countries along with Russia and Turkey banning all exports of mask to other EU member states and the rest of the World you can now see why they bellow from the rooftops that masks aren’t needed as it covers up their incompetences over the years while they were lining their pockets.

    Remember this after this is all over and they come begging on your TV for relief of some sort or other because of some local disaster as the UK is one of the most generous in the World in those matters but maybe we need to think about looking after ourselves in times of crises in future when the rest of the World tells you to get knotted and also make the government of the day more accountable to British interests in Briton in future.

    Today was my first day out, except for a 1 hour walk (be lucky if I could walk for an hour). The last time I went out properly was sunday. I went home to get my car & clothes as I have temporarily moved in with my party. Forgot my camera as there are some great sunrises/sunsets in the peak district. We went for some shopping in fesco, but she didn’t get rubber gloves, dishcloths, bleach & a large kitchen knife. Guess I’m safe for a few days as she can’t get rid of any DNA yet. However time will tell.

    Now here’s a thing about not going out…

    I have an IP camera at the front of my house that looks down on the front garden, car on driveway and part of the road and this road is a city suburban side street and the camera records 24/7 with files being over written at about 2 weeks.

    The recording software when looking at a days records put a time marker on movements when in infra-red night vision mode so it marks every time a car goes past my property and was astonished to see today no less than 30 cars went past between 12 AM and 6 AM today, 3 were police cars but 27 were private cars.

    Anyone have a guess as to where they would be going though I know one of the cars was someone across the road who works for First Bus and has always gone to work in the middle of the night but I’ve never seen so many cars at that time under normal circumstances.

    so far so good ive been able to get another supermarket delivery and ive 2 scheduled for wiltshire so april is all sorted. the only time i will need to venture out is around the 14th to collect prescription and get some meat from the butchers next door to the chemist.

    his meat is so much better than the supermarkets, and cheaper most of the time.

    bread making today so loveley smells through the house later lol.

    Some could be unmarked Police cars?

    Do you have industries/jobs in your area that work ‘funny hours’ such as bakers, train drivers/train cleaners/train engineering etc etc?

    I don’t know that one as I’ve never really paid it much attention though I remember from my sleepless nights awaiting my appeal for PIP a couple of cars would pass between 4 and 5 AM and about 4 or 5 between 5 AM and 6 AM.

    There is a couple of bus drivers in the street that work all sorts of hours but being on the edge of the city I think most of the traffic comes from out of town folk cutting through to pick up the best main road into the city centre avoiding jams but jams are no more at the moment.

    Nothing else other than the local supermarket that’s the source of most local traffic here and a shopping centre a mile down the road but nearly every thing is closed there at the moment as are the local schools.

    The extra staff could be what’s going on but I can see the local Morrisons and Iceland stores out my bedroom window and there’s no lights on there until delivery lorries arrive from about 6 AM.

    Checked back to last Monday and its about the same 30 cars every time between 12 and 6 but not the same frequency but between 2 AM and 3 AM showing nothing at all on all 4 days.
