Had a chilling email from work suggesting things are going well for the company. On the plus side it also says they're getting many 'rona absentees coming back so hopefully they won't want my services for a while :up:

Those who are jealous of the furloughed - you bloody well should be, it's great.

I continue to work as I have throughout. I thoroughly enjoy my Twenty mile each way commute :-)
Sometimes I work from home and then I don’t get to enjoy my commute.
Time spent being groovy to each other is always well
Spent

But that's what people voted for dynax! Did they expect anything different from the Tories?

And you also need to factor in the additional hit from the Crash'n'Burn Brexit that's coming down the line!

:stupid: And by that I mean I’m with @Six30


Regarding the probable pay restraint in the public sector. It was a betrayal when it was done over the past 11 years and it will be when they do it following all of our work during the crisis.

We've had no take out food of any description, no deliveries,
since before the lockdown started!
Seeing @Tiggie 's going back to work pics made me really want some.

Sue hasn't been off our property for 9 weeks!

Today we went for a drive and on the way home we got this! :thumb:

Still waiting to find out if the province is going to be uprated to Phase 1.

If it does happen, then Monday is the first day I can ride.

Which will make it that I did 65 days in the hole!

Went out today for a careful bimble, that lasted all of 2 minutes before becoming much more normal.. Aaanyway, traffic seems to be back to normal and there is technically a 2 people at a time rule at the petrol station kiosk but it is unenforceable when you can't see who's in half the shop. People not following social distancing rules at the entrance, public petrol pumps, this is never going to go well.

On the plus side it's 99.7p a litre!
