    Hi Rosie.

    One more day to go! Sorry for not replying earlier - I wasn't feeling too bad when I started the thread, but had a really rough last couple of days. I seem to be feeling much improved this morning though, touch wood.

    Sam, that made me laugh . Are you really in self isolation? I'd quite happily while away the days playing with Lego if I had some How are you coping without Fantasy League?

    Westy, I can't believe the stupidity/selfishness of people standing in the queue with coronavirus symptoms, having returned from Italy!

    How is your dad taking the news about over 70s having to stay at home? I spoke to my dad's partner today - apparently after BJ's statement, Dad announced that he was going to offer his services to elderly neighbours - helping them to do their shopping etc. Totally oblivious to the fact that he, too, is over 70 and has a serious heart condition! His partner has had to have "strong words" with him about putting himself at risk. He's not a happy bunny.

    Exiled, I have a vision of you going round the supermarket with your trolley, waltzing past the baked beans and toilet roll aisles, and heading straight for the Stella! The important things!

    Dave - you are absolutely right, I think the pictures of empty shelves on the news, just sets off a chain reaction - people who weren't panicking see those pics and panic! It's been nice to see people offering to help elderly, although I was saddened to read about people offering to do shopping for the elderly - taking their money and not coming back with the shopping! Another thing people could do to help is donate to food banks as they are struggling with a big drop in donations and some having to close/reduce services. Don't forget pet food if you are - my cousin is a vet and said she had the worst working day of her life yesterday. People coming in wanting perfectly healthy dogs put to sleep as they could no longer afford to feed their dogs after losing work due to crisis Others were coming in asking for elderly dogs to be put down, in case the surgery had to close, and not wanting their dogs to suffer if they got sick and this happened. So sad.

    Oh Bongo!

    At least they can't shut down our virtual little pub.

    Hope you are all okay and have everything you need x

    No, me and Isaac (my youngest, he might be manager of my team by the time the season start again) haven't been in isolation for real, but we've not been to play group or soft play or anywhere. So sort of!

    Its amazing how much I used to watch sport tho. I've discovered this woman who lives with me. She's my wife and is quite nice. I will probably continue to talk to her until all this blows over

    Well, work has been closed a week now, the pubs closed since Sunday night and I’ve finished Netflix and Sk Movies (well the ones that interest me).

    I’m going off my rocker. With my situation, I daren’t risk crowded places. Not self isolating as such, more just avoiding places where social distancing can’t be respected.

    Heard today that work will be closed til end of April at least, so it looks like DIY, baking and Stella are my only options for sanity. So expect collapsed cakes sitting on uneven shelves, hic hic .

    Divorce lawyers will be the only ones to benefit from all this malarkey.

    I hope you are managing to stay safely on your rocker, Exiled.

    Oooh. Chocolate cake for me please. Collapsed is fine.

    You are doing the right thing. It's a pain, but I guess over a period of a whole life time, it's only a small part of it and it's more important we all stay safe so we can have many more days to enjoy. That's what I'm trying to tell myself, anyway.

    Mmm yummy. Very nice cake.
