I won't be bored. We have a flat to decorate as we found the house we want to buy in Plymouth last week, put a deposit on it and for some bizarre reason, they want us to get an estate agent in as soon as possible (after the lockdown ends). I beats me why the rush, as the house we are going to buy won't be completed until about Christmas! If we sell early, we'll be stuck with renting for 6 months. But at least we get to choose the fixtures and fittings. This is the house -

Did the last of the clocks this morning so we were on two time zones for a while. Explained again why the clocks change. That I'm not doing it to fool him!!!  Waiting for amazon with my coffee. It's 150 x 6 refill bags and at £15 is cheaper than the supermarket. I like Nescafe. I've tried others but I like this and I'm not willing to change.

^^^^ Nice one! :)

We've finished painting the bathroom. Just the door frame and door to complete and then the carpets can be fitted once they are allowed to do so.
Tomorrow I plan to do more gardening. I'm slowly moving a lot of the plants into the old pond (which has been filled with concrete, rubble and sand so far), topping the topsoil up as I go. I've done about a quarter of it so far.

I took delivery of a work laptop, so I'm now officially working from home, which will help stave off the boredom.
Best call of the day today? - a bloke who reported his neighbours threatening him - as I gave him 999 advice if they turned up tonight, he told me he wasn't worried as he had some friends coming round to celebrate his birthday!! I told him that's now illegal and he claimed he didn't know, then said he'd meet them outside instead! I said that was illegal too as it was more than 2 people..... he then said oh OK I'll tell them not to come. I didn't believe him and told the local area to wait for the calls from his neighbours!  ::)

Figure out why turning off the modem at the wall trips the house RCB.

I noticed this morning that the amplifier light was on, and that is wrong as it should go off when the PC is turned off. A gadget socket that was free for Eon years and years ago is supposed to do that.

ALDI was in-and-out, no problems, with stocks of all I wanted.

Tesco, 200 yards away, had no queues outside, but as everyone tried to keep 2m distant and follow the arrows, we soon formed logjams behind Middle Eastern and Pakistani people blocking the aisles chatting loudly on their phones. They were getting around the  "1 trolley, 1 person, maximum 3 of each item" policy by adding 3 per trolley, then 3 more in the one pushed by their spouses....

Some shouting and ramming ensued.  :grumpy:

The plan was to pressure-wash the paths and patio, but the huge clematis will drop its petals soon, and that is a large mess, so I'll sort the compost out instead, tidy up some potted plants and do a sweep around.

HoN had to collect his prescription today. I went in the car with him, first time out of the flat in 3 weeks (since the last time I went out for a drive with him). Stayed in the car while he got soaked in the queue for the pharmacy. Oh, the excitement! ::)

Updated my online shopping basket for tomorrow . Next slot is 3 weeks away .
Hoping for some ruling on family visiting properly. Seriously considering letting them in the kitchen. Still two metres from us because this is driving us daft now. Family visit outside his bedroom door at the moment which is a bit better than the gate, but no fun for them when it's cold or raining.

Well, I'm up, and showered, and dressed, set my fitbit to charge, stood still for the 2 minutes' silence at 11am, now having brunch.

Was going to plant out the new patch but forecast is slight ground frost Sunday night so I'll wait until next week.

There is not a single flag or bunting out in this road (I wish I'd had time to print some and colour them but I've been working hard from home :( Since most of the people who live in our street are older than me, I'm amazed they don't appear to be marking it, and no self-distancing street party that I'm aware of. :-\

No flags or anything round here. Definitely no street parties but there are a lot of younger ones here. There used to be everyone out clapping on Thursdays, then it got spoiled with fireworks going off.

Lots of jobs in the garden. It's time to get the chilli pots ready, and cut the clematis back  hard. The council is "thinking" about reinstating green bin collection after much pressure, but until they do the trimmings will be wrapped in a tarp in the front garden.

Home Bargains. 20 minute wait, OK in the shop.

Aldi. No wait, OK in the shop.

Lidl. 15 minute wait, then almost as soon as I got into the shop an elderly gentleman in front of me got pissed-off with 4 Pakistani kids running amok whilst their parents blocked the aisle as they chatted on the mobiles. He swung his trolley around to stop then bumping into him, then bellowed at them at the top of his voice. A word I have not heard in over 40 years. They all got the message and squeezed themselves against the side of the aisle and let him advance.  On the way to the till, 2 huge obese women blocked the aisle whilst they had a very foul-mouthed chat. So I played curling with my heavy trolley. They got the message, as did the security guard who told them to do their shopping and then chat outside.

Tesco. A huge queue in blazing sunshine, so I came home. Lucky for me that the prescriptions won't be ready until late tomorrow afternoon.

Got home, put away the shopping, Did the washing-up whilst the chicken cooked. Now I'm on strike for the evening. Wine calls!

Spent most of the day gardening. Replaced a fence panel. It doesn't look odd because we got a spare panel when the builders downstairs replaced the fence of their garden and we saved them throwing them away...
The plants are growing well, lots of flowers coming through.
Oh, and the estate agent says our flat is worth £210k-£215k!

Pressure-washed the paths, patio, hardstanding and car. Covered the car against the honeydew. Put out the patio furniture (which is now in need of replacement) and parasol, all finished at 17:25. Then I was asked who is going to do the washing up and make sometime to eat.

  :grumpy:

So I did the washing up and reheated the last of the Algerian couscous.

Tonight I will pre-empt the inevitable bad back and have a few bevvies...

No, there are hundreds of complaints about them not delivering and they are sending out bogus delivery information to everyone and then claiming they are delayed in the post, it took Amazon about 30 seconds to authorise a refund which shows that they are on to a con, trouble is they are not the only ones out there doing this at the moment

Post by: Tâf on June 01, 2020, 21:18:09 pm
Started to repair the garden table. The legs, etc. are solid, so I have ripped of the rotten top slats and I am replacing them with treated bed slats. 3 coats of Ronseal needed, so I have given the bottom sides two already. One more tomorrow, flip them over, attach, cut and shape the ends, then start sealing the top.

The benches are falling apart, as are the two chairs, so they will need a total replacement. But with just 4 chairs with arms this time.

This is a similar design, but I have a few tweaks to make them more robust and weather resistant.

Got the prescriptions, did the shopping in almost deserted Aldi and Tesco (closed one of the 3 tills open just as I was ready to leave).

The person in charge of tobacco sales will only allow 10 packs per brand put out. She buggered off a few days ago, and no more stock can be shifted to the sales area. All they had left were a few packs of Superkings Original Black at £12.42!!!   :o  :o  :o  :o

I've tried everything...

The ridge of the mask needs to be UNDER the specs as high as you can comfortably wear one, with the ridge wire pressed to the shape of the nose and cheekbones.

Breathe through the nose as much as possible.

The tiniest drop of soapy water allowed to dry on the lenses, and then wiped clear can help. Or commercial antifog fluid (which is basically just soap and water anyway).

Can't breathe thru my nose, it doesn't function well.

I've put a pipe cleaner into the seam to create a ridge wire and give my glasses something to hold on too.

I seem to have more of a problem on the left side, potentially due to miss shaped nose and having solid frame glasses with no little pads on them. So I can't get the glasses to hold onto the mask.

It won't matter on the train as I can just take my glasses off, but driving lessons are restarting... So taking glasses off might be an issue.

Join the growing mass that are calling our local GPs to get them to reopen the local practice and get the flu and pneumonia jabs available. We are hoping the pressure will get them to do something to return to some sort of normality. The local Health Authority have been no use in that respect.

Tesco flu jabs are by online appointment. Got one for the lad (21st Sept) but the system won't let me book the other 3 as they are free "and should be available at health clinics".

Our (very local) circular bus run by a private company used to run once an hour to a local village.

It has now moved to "fflexi" meaning it doesn't have a timetable, but you have to request a pickup and drop off via an app.

Getting the lad to put the app on his phone and make a booking was the most difficult thing I've had to do in ages.

"OK, it's now booked" he finally said, "pickup in 7 minutes, I'd better get my shoes on, grab a bag, and hope Mum will also be ready".

No, she wasn't..... and they have now set off at her slow pace to hopefully catch it... in 2 minutes...
