Yeah it just seems illogical to me, How its been handled. Boston and Lincoln are or were high, Peterborough was higher ,they were tier 2 we were tier 3 ,tho they have now moved up to 3.
Its easy enough for us to follow rules as we are in the shielded group and have not changed what we do at all. But if your out there trying to lead a normal life ,it must be hell.
I have always said protect those who are vulnerable, and let them be sensible too, help those of them who have to work and can't,and let the rest work ,not get into debt , keep the country running.
Over the way we have a bloke who runs a hookey garage from his house, hes clustered daily with lots of different folks , his kids and their kids visit, yet he has a vulnerable wife. I have never seen him with a mask. Yet so far hes escaped , you cant wonder that folks think its a scam.
We had a friend died down Bracknell way, his cousin in East Cheshire had his handyman die of it , a friend in Woodhall caught it , and recovered.
I just count us as lucky,no work worrys,we are both retired now, and because of Garrys Injurys and stuff we do get nice supermarket delivery slots ,tho its still no easy.

Thanks mate, she's all good now.  The Mrs & I both got it after her and are generally feeling okay now, we just have a feeling of tiredness, loss of smell/taste (comes in handy after the brussel sprouts tbh  :D ) and I get out of breath easily.  Lungs have the tight feeling like the start of an asthma attack all the time, if you know what I mean.

I think we've been fairly lucky considering what some people have had with it.

Thanks:

Getting fed up of lockdown now... anyone else? My main concern is my 18month old - he goes to the childminders twice a week but that is literally all he does the other days we struggle through trying to entertain him - looking for gaps in the weather to go for a walk or to the park... I’m sure it will have some kind of impact on his social development but hopefully we can catch up for lost time when things are back to normal... zoo and aquarium visits are always top of the list. I have a mate who works at Manchester seaside - he’s the curator actually, and he has promised me a personal guided behind the scenes tour!!

Hi, being a plumber and heating engineer, I can say without a doubt people aren't taking this seriously.
I have worked continuously from 23rd March last year to present day, and really busy too. It's just starting to slow down now, for me anyway, others are booked months in adavance.
Having a lot of work makes me think about the poor souls losing their jobs and businesses, it's almost like I feel  I'm doing a bad thing (catholic guilt background, now almost gone).
With reference to my first line, In March last year, I was virtually alone on the M25 and M3 motorways, everyone wore masks in their homes, people were paranoid to the point that in some peoples homes I had to don a CSI white coverall.
This time round virtually everyone has to be told by me to wear a mask when I get into their homes. It's got to the point that I've prepared a text to send to customers in advance of my visit telling them to do so and that I will be wearing one/have alcohol spray to disinfect handles I touch etc. AND STILL, I get to their homes and they ain't wearing one!!
Worse still, on 23rd December last year I was working in someone's house looking forward to having my 82 year old mum over for xmas (she's had pneumonia, so I have to be really careful), and my son  from his PHd digs in Reading. No one in the house apart from me was wearing a mask.
Next day, the father of the two young girls in the house announces that the youngest tested positive for covid, so they had to have known it was a possibility to have had a test done in the first place, though he claimed it was in advance of his in-laws coming for xmas.
So, having been in contact with the family, I had to isolate which meant no mum or son for xmnas, I was f***ing livid!
 Every day now, even with this new strain people are far more lackadaisacal than they were last year, it's getting a real pain.
I can't furlough as I'm a limited company, so I have to go out there risking even my own health (I'm 58 and have apnea so breathing difficulties necessitating a CPAP machine).

But... my tang's doing better and soon he'll be in the DT so it's all going to turn out OK. He says, fingers crossed..........

Your right people all over are starting to ignore the rules. Just amongst neighbours I’ve seen gatherings of 3 or 4 households (and the owner of the house is a nurse!) and lots of friends and family visiting - far more cars than there could be if it was just a single support bubble. I get similarly angry when I think about people loosing their jobs because others can’t be bothered to follow simple rules. I may be fed up but I kind of feel entitled to be (and to winge about it!) because I’ve actually been doing what I’m supposed to!!!

Round here, we live in as small rural village...very few have changed their behaviour. One bloke runs an illegal garage out his house ,every day seven days a week customers arrive , hes one of those who edges closer and closer as he talks to you...People  have visitors ,one lot live in two homes at the same time coming and going.
We are getting fed up but we are better off than many,we have a big front and rear garden ,we can walk up the lane surrounded by fields. Spring is coming and I am getting out in the poly tunnels.
Food and everything else gets delivered and disinfected or quarantined.
Sunday Garry as a clinically extremely vulnerable person gets his first vaccination ,as my only sin is being old I have to wait for the next group down.
I am sure if I was young with kids I would be tearing my hair out.
Why not let the likes of Garry and I shield and  if of working age support us /them and let the rest who are in little danger get on with it.
