I fancy a 400 mile round trip to Cornwall. 8 hours for a stroll on the beach. Shambolic new guidelines.
A selection of options has been presented and are dependent upon other issues, circumstances and data.
Certainly not rubbing anyone’s nose in anything. I just don’t see the logic in this refund to everyone, better surely for Motability to keep it to enhance its system of grants for those in need.
I don’t know about rubbing anyone’s nose, but I can tell you the wife will be rubbing her hands.
using gel or hanwash/soap?
This £50 payment will be a welcome addition to many household budgets. Many of us are currently paying around £260/300 a month to have our cars parked in our gardens doing nothing. RSA will have seen a huge drop in claims so morally, this is the best thing to do.
I have tried the “ready steady cook” flatbread recipe, its a piece of cake if you excuse the pun and I will try and post a pic next time I do it.
We have the benefit of monitoring the situation in other countries before we take decisions here. I think it is going to be a very slow and methodical process.
I think next week we could well see the 1st signs of an easing of restrictions which will take place in the 1st week of May.
Tienes razon tharg.Lo siento Julie. No me di cuenta que no hablas español. Spain have relaxed their lockdown rules but they are still more restrictive than ours in many respects. Interested to see who leads the 5pm press conference.

Jolly nice day doon south today. A pity can only enjoy from inside.
Es una buena idea, es algo creo que necesitamos hacer aquí.
<p style=”text-align: left;”>I see a “top” US politician has suggested injecting disinfectant. The same one who said the USA would be open for business by Easter.</p>
Can’t beat bean to cup coffee. We use lavazza beans. And cafe rosa decaf.
A quick thought, we supposedly have brilliant scientists throughout the world yet, on the simple question of wearing face masks, they cannot agree.
Pleasant, sunny and warm. Ideal day to visit the beach, in different circumstances! Todays visit will be via “google maps”.
Many food programmes now on the box.

Our local Tesco has priority slots for this week. Iceland had de livery slots for all this Wednesday and Morrison’s had a couple too. They release slots at different times. We are using Asda as they offer a recurring weekly slot so no need to keep checking. Good luck and agree too dangerous to go out.
Best practice is to keep checking multiple supermarkets several times a day.
I recall predicting that car numbers would fall to zero. This was a tounge in cheek comment which followed a drop in numbers due to the price cap. Never could I have imagined this.
I am going to predict the next move in numbers will be up! I am not sure when though. I wa also thinking like many others in the 1.5m we are going to be paying for leases for many months with the car sitting completely idle.
I feel China will have many questions to answer and, financially, has much more to lose.
I think that once this is over, this country and many others will be reviewing its relationship and its dependence on China and Chinese products.
The exercise issue needs to be resolved very quickly. The vast majority are observing the lockdown and rules but if they see others flouting them might conclude “what’s the point or if you can’t beat them etc”. No doubt a very difficult situation but I think now is the time for action. We are seeing that social distancing seems to be working in other countries. On a different note it’s being suggested China should pay financially for failing to report the virus. There are many stories about this on several mainstream sites. £351b is the sum mentioned for the UK.
We leave relatively close to Salisbury and after the novichock attack did not visit for some time. It took over a year for things to return to normal and it’s probably going to be the same for the country and indeed the world. I was chatting to a friend who is a retired head teacher and he told me many private schools will not reopen and we turned our attention to the sporting calendar. If Covid 19 is, as forecast, going to be around it seems inconceivable that sporting events, pop concerts etc will be able to continue, certainly not in their present form. Perhaps people will reflect on current events and reconsider renewing their season ticket and sports TV passes given recent comments. I suspect overseas travel will be a lot more expensive with likely temperature and other checks becoming the norm. Do we now need HS2 and a 3rd runway. I have only seen 1 aircraft in the sky all week. Finally it’s pleasing the vast majority are observing the lockdown and several London parks which were still open today will be shut to the public tomorrow and on that note the New Forest national park have made it Crystal clear that they do not want any visitors whatsoever.
Hi, fwippers. Great! Glad you got it to work somehow. Wish I could click and collect but that is just too dangerous. Mrs Tharg, all 70+ yrs and 6 stone of her is just too vulnerable for me to risk getting this bug. Cannot go into any shop. Finally managed to get an Asda delivery last night; secret is to wait until a few seconds after midnight which, it seems, is when the shop puts up new slots. Still pretty much hit-and-miss though.
Very good news. We managed to secure a Tesco delivery for a fortnight and an Iceland one too for this week. It’s very hit and miss. There does need to be a proper system so the 1.5m can have priority access. I hope to be able to release our click and collect. That worked well, drove up to collection point. Groceries put behind car and my wife out them in the boot.
