Hi guys ,
At this tragic time with all what's going on I thought maybe we could all try and think positive,if we can ,so thought maybe we could all keep in touch a bit more if that's possible and  try to keep each other's minds occupied with something and keeping our chins up .
I wish you and you're families all the luck and look forward to reading and sharing some good stories .
Dave

What's every been up to? Everyday seems just unreal at the moment and with me being a keyworker I get to leave the house and get about, but can notice the wife and kids starting to get fed up and starting to feel a bit down

Amo, I'm a plumbing and heating engineer and am rushed off my feet with work.
Being self employed, I'm used to working all the hours God sends, so to be at home all this time, I'd have gone mad

More laudable in current times than mine, unless of course you're a granny with no heating or hot water

Have decided to take 2 weeks annual leave from Monday to try and boosting their Morales up plus have some DIY jobs around the house I have been putting off for later.

I'm working from home as a software developer whilst looking after my 5 year old kiddy...as you can imagine I'm not getting too much done! 

I would love to know how many times she says the word 'daaaaaaad' per day.   lol

Good Subject Dave!!

We are all blessed to have a similar interest, it’s great that we can use what knowledge we have to escape the current reality for a short period of time!

I’ve never been as grateful as I am now to have a corner of the ocean in my own front room!!

Everyone stay safe, look after yourselves and your loved ones!!

No storm lasts forever!

This self endulging thing , I've put on about 2 stone and gone through loads of chocolate and ice cream, pizzas ,
Then I find out it's self isolating not endulging ,
Government never could explain anything properly.

If you think that's bad spare a thought for me. I'm covered in a rash and itching all over since wrapping myself up in rockwool for 7 days. I thought the government had said "self insulating"!

(I'll get my coat.....)
