    Oh Suzeanna I got an email from Tesco telling me about the changes to their opening hours. I never thought to mention it here. I am so sorry! I will post here if I get more emails about any changes in the future. We had heavy rain last night and its very overcast today. This would have been the start of the Easter influx of tourists. They are not missing anything with the weather anyway. It is lovely to have the place entirely to ourselves though not by the circumstances.

    Suzeanna that's fascinating, thanks for sharing. My grandmother took a Jewish lady and her child in after they managed to escaped the Nazis from somewhere in Europe. She was visited beforehand by govt. officials who told her that things could go badly for her if the Nazis invaded Britain and discovered she'd given aid to Jews. My grandmother replied "them buggers won't beat us". The lady and her child stayed for a few weeks until she discovered her husband had also escaped and was in Glasgow so she left to join him there. My grandmother also took child evacuees from London escaping the Blitz. She got a lovely certificate at the end of the war signed by the King as well as one signed from the Queen (later the Queen Mum) but she never displayed them. I'm sad to say they've since been lost in one of my house moves โ˜นโ˜น On the 50th anniversary of VE day I put up my grandmother's original bunting from the actual VE day celebrations and on the same house as it was still in the family then ๐Ÿ‘ Griff I agree with you by the way on the fines. There are some really irresponsible, selfish people about. We were out clapping last night. My home town really showed their appreciation big style again this week ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Don't forget there is a repeat of the Clap For The Carers at 8pm tonight.

    My pals are technophobes so can't do home shopping themselves. Just had one bit of good news. We got the money refunded for our flights to Southampton from when Flybe collapsed. Just need the rest of the holiday costs sorted on the insurance now which is considerably more than those flights!

    Suzeanna that sounds fascinating about the SOE. Super brave men & women who served behind the lines, I have much admiration and respect for them ๐Ÿ‘โค I am waiting in eager anticipation to read Owl and Wispa recollections of their tracking ๐Ÿ˜ I just happened to check Sainsbury's site yesterday at the right time and got a delivery spot for Monday. I had a Tesco booked for Tuesday but as I have a delivery saver all paid for in advance with Sainsbury's I am going with them. My friends are going to take the Tesco slot so I shall order their stuff for them. The husband is in a vulnerable group and she is terrified of bringing Covid-19 home to him when she has to go shopping. I couldn't change the address as I'd started the order already for myself but she'll bring her car round to pick their groceries up from our garden which is a lot better than going to the supermarket herself.

    I don't recall that Owl. Tell us again!

    Griff I saw that some of the Chinese meat markets with the bats, pangolins etc. had opened up again and indeed some had never shut down in the first place! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ On the other hand some areas in China have now closed down and banned the dog meat markets. Lets hope that movement overtakes the rest of the vile trade. The 1918 Flu pandemic started in the US when bird flu crossed from wild ducks to domesticated ones and a young farm lad contracted the deadly flu from them. He was about to join the army and took the flu with him to a camp for soldiers about to embark for France. It spread from there. It's just amazing that we managed to go 102 years without another pandemic but here we are.

    I very much doubt that April will be the best month ever Jazz. Have you seen what's going on in the world ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Is everyone sleeping alright? I'm finding I'm waking up a lot through the night. Eve I'm glad the kennel cough seems to be on the mend. My brother's family dog, Taz, had to go into our vets HQ at Cockermouth yesterday for a scan. He's always had a dodgy tummy but he's lost loads of weight lately and has had a dire rear. There's no signs of tumours or anything like that but they have diagnosed a digestive problem with an unpronouncable name. Anyway he's on new medication and diet.

    Well please thank your neighbour from me Owl. That's a fantastic effort from his workplace ๐Ÿ‘

    Yes indeed blackmagic. I stand corrected. I think a lot of people of all ages really don't get it. This is a serious situation and we all gave a part to play in it mainly by staying put. However there are are way to many selfish people who think the rules don't apply to them or do but don't care.

    Aren't some people beyond ruddy awful and rude Suzeanna. I make a point of thanking all our delivery people. We couldn't do this without them ๐Ÿ‘โค The little Mace shop in town is going to deliver us some shopping tomorrow or the next day, whichever they can manage, for which we are very grateful. I picked fruit on a kibbutz in Israel and loved it though it was hard work. If I was younger, fitter and not in a risk group and found myself with no work I'd have a go now at picking fruit & veg. Right this is where I do an impression of my grandad! "Kids today don't know they are born. Its all self, self, self". I know we have some truly good, caring young folk but oh the self absorbed, self entitled ones need a kick up the jacksie.

    Good luck with the switch Eve. I hope it's all trouble free. Blackmagic I hope Cleo recovers from her cough. My old vet always said our local park should be avoided whenever possible as it was a breeding ground for germs with the concentration of dogs using it from not just the local population but from all the visitors dogs.

    Cumbria police have been stopping campervans, motorhomes and caravans and sending them back from whence they came as well as day visitors in cars. We are high on the list of the number of Covid-19 cases in any area of the UK no doubt in part to all the clowns that arrived here the weekend before last. Locals are reporting any 2nd home occupancy and any sort of parked up mobile home and the authorities are acting on the reports. I'm sick of those people who think the rules don't apply to them and continue to put themselves and more importantly other people at risk as well as adding to the pressure on our wonderful NHS workers. Right from the off I have been cleaning the letterbox, front door handle and the front gate after every delivery with antibacterial spray and wipes. I've got a note on the front door to let the delivery people know I'm doing this and thanking them for bringing our deliveries.

    Exactly Griff. We can make this work with modern technology. So you will all like this one. Police tweeted: "Non-essential reasons for travel, Pitlochry to Wakefield via Cumbria to pickup up a puppy.
