  1. I like that you used the correct spelling of aisle 😇 😄👍
  2. Tried a couple of different Tanqueray gins, haven't tried that one yet though. I'm halfway through my second Bulldog, our favourite gin at the moment 👍
  3. @Milkman as a member of our local council waste team, you sound like the perfect customer 👍 Quite often see when picking up the recycling a bin out with 5 or 6 bottles in the bottom of it! 🙄
  4. I would imagine that councils will be concentrating on rubbish rather than recycling for now. I would also imagine that they will relax the rules a wee bit.
  5. @Milkman our local FB buying/selling pages are full of folk looking for running machines and weight benches. Meanwhile I'm getting roasted on a thread by questioning whether going to the recycling center is deemed 'essential travel' apparently it is because 'I missed putting my bin out' translates as an emergency situation 🙄 Well they had better be quick, I have it on good authority that, like sites up and down the country, they'll be closing very shortly.
  6. Just been for a 20 minute walk with Mrs Turvey, didn't realise I was so unfit!!! Can see this enforced home time might be a good time to start going out for a decent walk and getting the legs and lungs in decent order.
  7. Try to enjoy your enforced time off, not easy I know. Get out in the fresh air, go for a walk..... responsibly of course. I've just contacted my work and have decided that due to health issues, MS, I won't be returning for the foreseeable future....12 weeks being the recommended time.
  8. What part of 'No UNNECESSARY travel' are people finding it hard to understand? https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-derbyshire-52055201 I do think, however, that the guidelines being shared etc should make it plain and simple that driving somewhere to exercise is not allowed. We had 5 muppets up here yesterday driving out to a beach to surf! Apparently they drove there separately, so that's all right then 🙄
  9. Die Hard? Is it Christmas already? 😄
  10. We've not done green waste for a few years...... thank goodness, very labour intensive. Our recycling centers are still open but on shorter hours..... for now, I can see them closing sometime soon. We're still picking up recycling for now but again for how long I'm not sure, I would think it won't be long before there won't be enough drivers and crew so they'll concentrate on rubbish collection. As far as I am aware MS isn't on the 'stay inside for 12 weeks' list but is on the 'be very sensible and careful' list. If you catch CV-19 with MS you are at risk of your MS flaring up, which I really don't want.
  11. I drive for our local council but have been off work for the last couple of weeks, non CV related. I also have MS, not had a relapse for 9 years 🤞, and am due back to work next Tuesday. I normally work alone but I've been informed by workmates that a few drivers have gone home this week. There's every possibility that I could be in a dustcart next week with 1 or 2 crew members and the chance of catching something. To say that I'm getting a bit worried is an understatement. I don't know what the alternative is, pickup following dustcart with ONE crew member in it emptying the bins.
  12. I need to get out more......oh, that's right, I can't!!! 🙄😃
  13. Pic of you in a couple of weeks! 😃
