    Going to work this morning at 5 and seen loads of cars tbh. Normally I'm the only one on the road. Made no sense since no shops open till about 8.

    Although today seems alot less people about in general but it is raining. Ask again when the sun pops out later.

    Only real thing I have noticed is less cars on the road at peak hour, more people out jogging since the gyms are closed, but other than that it's business as usual. Work on civil projects and while there's distancing around the offices and crib huts, it's business as usual out on site. Actually probably had one of our busiest weeks, sites seem to be ramping up to get things over the line.

    I'm happy enough to work away atm, we aren't getting the 80% of wages over here. It's annual leave or LWOP. They have doubled the dole but I imagine there will be all sorts of hoops to jump through.

    In the village we've set up a self-help group offering support to any who need it from lunch-time soup to collecting prescriptions, messages etc., and trying to ensure no-one's left isolated.

    Very quiet by me, just people out walking the dog etc.

    Still normal trains seem to be running.

    6 coaches with about 2 people on each train, why the * are they not just sending out 2 or 3 coaches on them?

    Seems like a waste of fuel.

    Down the main town road. Mostly be the factory workers that pack the veg I assume. Thought it was strange considering its normally empty. Think there all doing extra for the extra demand.

    Kids out playing (must be * for parents, I’m lucky my bhoy is 20, fit and healthy) been out a few times for supplies and haven’t seen police once on either journey My dealer dropped round with supplies, he was wearing a bandana over his face and surgical gloves but still out delivering as he’s providing a social service, helping to alleviate the boredom

    Well how are things in your local areas now Cool Celts??
    On my local estate and immediate area still a really good reaction on the whole tfft
    But on Facebook there is a Big Blog on the Greater Local area and there is still a small army Arseholes out there.TF they are heavily outnumbered but enough to really * off the vast majority.
    Some of the things some of these Arseholes have done defies belief.

    The local hookers are wearing masks and tyvek suits, it's good tae see them adopt a cautious approach amidst such a difficult time for the industry. :50:

    Working as a park warden last weekend and the park was nice a quiet,has a reputation as a bit of a rough place but the local scum have gone into hiding.

    Was stopped by the guards on the way home,guy must have been no older than 20....apologises for stopping me and then ask,s me is there anything i need to ask him about the virus?considering he wasnt wearing gloves or a mask i thought better than asking him anything.

    Anything you want to ask me? Aye could you please back off to *.

    I haven't noticed much as have been indoors most of the time. I'm waiting on a work related call at 3pm then going to go a walk up the canal for an hour or so. Last time I went there were a fair few people out though, just dog walking, cycling etc.
