Well now Kenny is in part retirement, he's not breathing as much fire, so he might be able to do it without melting the balloons :-D :-D :-D

LaGooner Report 13 Oct 2020 20:22

Oh dear YG we have no new cases close by that we know of.


YG Report 13 Oct 2020 20:18

I was looking forward to a really good natter!! I went out after work and bought fresh flowers, vacuumed through, washed the kitchen floor, cooked my tea and put smelly candles out and all to no avail :-D :-D :-D :-D Aah well, it saves me doing it another day!!

According to the local paper, there have been 10 cases of the virus in very close proximity to me. I think I had better dive under the duvet and stay there for the winter :-0 :-0 :-0 :-0 They referred to it as the park area and there is only the pub between me and the park. Whether that was a general description for what we call 'the first estate' or whether it has originated from youngsters gathering in the park, I'm not sure.

Boooooooooooooooo YG, that is such good news about your bubble :-D :-D :-D. A shame about your pals though :-(


YG Report 13 Oct 2020 19:56


I'm here :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

I was waiting for a friend to arrive for a catch up before the midnight hour strikes and the new restrictions come in, but she has sent a text saying that her stepson has been sent home from school as another pupil has the virus, so she can't risk coming now. My other friend's daughter, who is a learning assistant at school, was also sent home last week as a pupil there had the virus and she has to stay home for two weeks even with a negative test result. My friend has been allowed to go back to work though.

I'm very disappointed as i don't know how long it will be now before i can see either of them again :-(

Good news about the bubble though! I was looking on the website at lunchtime to find out and then R sent me a text tonight to confirm. Now its up to the nosy neighbours whether they don't realise that I am in a bubble and report R when they see me there 3 times a week. They have recently reported another neighbour because their dog was barking!!

ZZzzz Report 13 Oct 2020 19:45

I don’t know where YG is so don’t know about her bubble.


Mazfromnorf Report 13 Oct 2020 19:37

Well we are allowed our bubble and we are all tier two I think ,so hope I got the info right .The statement mentions child care and the support bubbles .
I would struggle to get through the winter months with out my bubble .even though my job is lighter there is no banter as we loan work most of the time .


LaGooner Report 13 Oct 2020 18:55

Mazfromnorf Report 13 Oct 2020 18:50
