Experts may have got it wrong, but........record level of deaths today as we are hitting the steep part of the pandemic curve :? .

No time to relax precautions. :cry:

It would seem that my agency do not have work for me, but they have a habit of just firing out emails and waiting. It took a while to land my previous London run. I have been proactive myself, but most of the driving jobs are taken. John Lewis drivers for instance were switched to serve Waitrose. :roll:
I approached another company today, but they only look at applicants online and they had 100 applications today! :shock:

I am still waiting to see what help HMG can give, but all channels seem to be jammed. Maybe l’ll just try early retirement.......if there’s anyone around to deal with my application! :?

Now l feel a bit sick? Boris Johnson moved into intensive care as a precaution in case he needs to go on a ventilator.

Wishing him all well in these critical hours.

Do you feel it would be social , morally and legal acceptable to use the likes of pepper spray or a cattle prod to ensure social distancing is maintained , just that recent events at work and whilst out shopping , there are still people struggling to grasp the need for the rule and adhere to the 2 metre rule :headbang: :headbang:

I feel a bit like Moses at the moment, wherever I walk large gaps open up for me and people turn their backs.....I have been wishing for this all of my life and finally I get it.
Have to be honest, but I do like all this virus thing, the roads are quiet, people don`t want to be anywhere near you and the weather has been brilliant since it all kicked off.

I shall vote for it next time :yup:

an intersting read , in particular how things and people have changed their values
"An experience like that changes things, and for Ms. Yan it has reshuffled her priorities: Health and family first. Work, career, success — all of that second." :yup:

I have been delivering mostly foodstuffs to various places and the way in which they treat and expect the yard staff and drivers is totally different to the way in which the office staff expect to be treated.

When I do a collection, I am expected to take the paperwork no question, yet when I do a delivery, no one wants the paperwork.....So that is finishing tomorrow, I am no longer taking paperwork and if my drop tomorrow refuses the paperwork I am getting in the bed and having a kip while all the wankmuffin cumstainer shitblocking putrid fucking desk jockies work out how they are going to do it.....Because I ain`t fucking budging, they can all fuck off for me.

Well the local authorities appear to be quite relaxed, but sensible around here. I have to travel regularly when few other cars are out, but the police don’t give me a second look ( mind you they probably recognise me as a carer from my partner who uses a wheelchair and special van ). ;)

We know people in the health and care sectors and also people who have lost friends and family members so we know that death is going on around us. We also see the risks to older and more vulnerable people around us who we have to assist. We had to go to a main hospital last week for my partners son to have a minor opp. He was the only one on the ward and probably the last normal procedure that department were doing as the children’s ward was being turned into a pandemic ward the moment we left the building. Movement around departments by any public was strictly controlled. The order came through while we were there for all staff to start wearing masks. I heard that measure announced that morning on TV and l walked in with my mask in place. :?

We also met and chatted (at a distance ) with my partners old consultant surgeon who had operated on her previously. He had been in the main block dealing with Covid 19 victims and he gave us no illusions about what was going on. :cry:

We may be overreacting, but better that way now so we can get over the peak sooner. We can see that nearly happening in China, Italy and Spain. :ill: I am drinking ginger tea everyday, avoiding sugary drinks, and trying to reduce my Candida levels as l have a complex lung sensitivity l do not know how much that would mix with the virus if l was unlucky. :?

If l have any criticism of the authorities, it is the slowness in lock down and quarenteen of international travellers in the very beginning, and more recently the assumption that everyone has a computer to do everything online! :roll: Apart from all that things are generally good! :sun:
