EVERYONE should be staying at home/their garden.

Please don't come to Wales, people, because if you do, we'll get highly annoyed 😠

Dennab Looks like it's going to be a sunny one on Monday, so we're expecting to be overrun with fools.

I want one of them stinger things like the old bill have.

TheChimp Speaking of which, they'll be out in force on the ***, A494 and other roads that cross the border. The stupid thing is people who live on the Welsh side will nip over to England knowing the rules are slightly relaxed. The whole situation is ridiculous. Wales and Scotland may as well claim independence now but not before I've bought a cheap house on your side.

Agree TheChimp stay home you will have plenty of time to do something when it's all over. Plus it's only another day people just use it as an excuse to get drunk. If have kids just play some games with them.

SonsOfPitches It was the same with Easter but one thing I appreciate is not having to fast. Have you been doing that?

Dennab the body adjusts. First few days were difficult but then you get into a routine. I'm still working. The body gets used to the lack of food and water and right now with few days left the fasting isn't difficult.

SonsOfPitches Oh right! It's always fascinating to learn about. I know someone who is presenting on radio while fasting and you wouldn't know it from hearing them.

Staying home. Staying sensible. No bank holiday specific plans but this weekend I'm going to start a book I've been wanting to read for a while, watch Netflix and perhaps sit out in the garden if the weathers nice.

Same as been doing really. Couple hours work down the allotment, take dog for a walk, cooking & baking. Might set about listing the hoard of items put aside for ebay seeing as it Β£1 min fees this weekend.

Glitterandgold One thing I would say about that is selling on eBay will surely increase your visits to the local post office, an enclosed space which is worse than sitting in someone's garden. I sold a large item I need to drop off at someone's house but not allowed to do that apparently, even with the slightly relaxed rules. It all seems a bit backward to me. Do you see what I mean?

Dennab I rarely use the post office to send my items. Unless it's just a large Letter. Hermes is cheaper to send items tracked & Iv had less issues with them in the past than the PO. Also it's currently no more expensive to have Hermes collect direct from me. So as long as I listed all the items to end the same day, they could be collected/sent all at once. I believe some Hermes collection points are now also using lockers but Iv not looked into that closely enough yet. Although at the mo I'm just 'thinking' (me thinking aloud & doing are very different things 😁)selling a couple personal items, I have a very small business venture & my ebay sales are where one of my main sales come from, Due to my dwindling finances I will have to very soon start thinking about setting my shops back up.

Glitterandgold my Hermes is fab for collecting from home address. Post office way to expensive another one I have used is collect plus. Good luck selling a lot of people buying online now so it’s a great time.

Glitterandgold Good alternative and although I have a relative in the Royal Mail, they don't need to know that I also think Hermes are a lot better for parcels... 🀭 Good luck with the shops. I've seen a few on the high street shut down this week. Sad times.

Ann1984 Yeah 100%. I often read horror stories about Hermes but Iv honestly never had a single issue & I use them alot. The hermes guy who collects from us is an old work pal of my OH so that might help me πŸ˜„

Thanks Dennab Dont worry, No one here is telling πŸ˜†

I suspect the people who are taking the mick won't write it on here. I haven't driven beyond the local supermarket since the start but considering the 8 mile trip to wave at my Mum from afar across her (big) garden. I'll see how she is though because it would only be for her sake, not mine!

Dennab I think that would be nice especially because you’ll still be maintaining the distance and following the guidance! Ive heard people driving 100+ miles when they weren’t supposed to!!

Take the dog for a walk in the country (circular walk avoiding any other walkers or keeping a safe distance and saying hello), then sit in the garden (appreciating how lucky I am) and drinking craft beer from my local brewery who have delivered it and then spare a thought for those unfortunate who are suffering loss, bereavement or are trying to cope with this horrible, nasty, virus.

Tomorrow will consist of the following .......

Gonna make the wife a breakfast of bacon and eggs first thing.

Then I'll mow the lawns.

Afternoon will probably be a film, maybe Apocalypse Now.

Tea will be a carbonara (UK style).

Haven't got a clue about the evening, but it will definitely include wine.

I went for a (very blustery) walk yesterday and today I am in the garden picking up lots of leaves and branches which have fallen and created a mess.
