I used to be like that and it is very rare we run out of anything that I am in charge of, but our holiday in Spain and the shut down here has sent me into laid back "don't worry about it" mode It is good for my mental health but not good when I live with a "leave it until tomorrow" person It is this person who is in charge of checking the oil tank!

Had to put the flaps down on my hat this morning because its a very cold wind a blowing.

Just to show I´m not telling fibs about how life can go on in my part of the world.
Yesterday there were 6 fishermen tents by the river and the MH. I walked the opposite direction this morning so only saw what was in and near the car park.

It's a tough life....

Your freedom to act MIGHT be used by some to suggest that the German Government has handled this crisis more rapidly than the British.....

NB I did say "some people" as I would not want anyone to think that I MIGHT not believe the UK Government acted in a timely manner. 🙃











There is no "think" about it - I am 100% certain that the UK Government were slow to react to the possibility of a crisis...... 😢😰😨🤔😪🤕🙄

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I think it´s more to do with the part of Germany I live Dave, a part where tourists are quite rare for a start.

I´m also in a village in Oderaue

Obviously not

I rang the police a few weeks back and asked if I was permitted to take the Navajo for a spin, the answer was yes.

Protection must be warn when shopping Roy (my shopper) tells me.
If you want to know how things are being done here.

Heike and Jürgen still go to their caravan at weekends, Jürgen still goes to work, Heike is working from home.
Maybe its to do with following the rules, Germans are maybe more obedient than the Brits.

Yes I did wonder if the Germans level of obedience for rule following was key to their success rate in tackling this virus. Perhaps if the Brits were better behaved we might have been allowed to do such things in a safe manner.

To be fair, I'm amazed at how compliant we Brits have been! I think I saw somewhere that Boris' Social Scientists were predicting 20% non-compliance and that was a reason for holding off the Lockdown for so long.

Following an earlier tack, I sit here at the end of a country lane in a sleepy little Norfolk village with fibre broadband giving me 71.3Mbps download and 18.63Mbps upload (Ookla) despite two folk using it at the moment. We also get 24/7 phone calls (limited to 1hour) for £28 per month.

Brilliant Gordon. I can only wait and see for speeds like that. But our calls are round the world with no time limit.
