    Earlier today at my local supermarket.
    Maybe not a funny reality, but it did make me chuckle...

    I just returned home from Floating steal Island yesterday, quite a shock
    Today I took to the normal routine of washing car, further shock all the neighbours (bar one in the street) had taken to washing cars
    I’m not sure what has been the greatest shock!

    Agree, it’s one of those rock and hard place decisions
    Out at sea you find oneself surrounded by relatively well known strangers, at home you have family .....
    Harsh reality!

    Everyone must have little projects around the home and garden. In the recent gales, we had a fence panel blow out. Decided it wasn't worth trying to repair as most of the panels are started to go at the base. So ordered new panels from a timber yard, and went to our local hardware outlet, only to find that their stock of fence paint and brushes was low. The guy said that they were having trouble getting more stock! Everybody must be panic buying fence paint now, just in case. :rolleyes: :frustrated:

    There are many words I want you use to describe such people, non of which I can use on a public forum.

    My daughter , her hubby and 2 of my grandchildren come home from Spain today . They ve been in Lockdown over there for a week now . No panic buying over there , everything very well controlled and spotlessly clean . They will be in self isolation at home for 2 weeks , 2 weeks before I can get a hug from my only granddaughter , a month in total. Tough times indeed .

    @Verbarthe, hope your family will return safely.
    I wonder though if perhaps you’ll have to hold off on hugs sadly, even after their isolation?

    Maybe we should all try to be more self-sufficient.



    Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected. Sometimes laughter is the best medicine. Enjoy!

    I reckon, by today’s pricing, that short clip would have cost more than a blockbuster Hollywood star enlisted hit!
