Used to Be Proud

In the News

I have totally lost faith with the welsh people.

yes we not able to buy certain things for 17 days, this is to control the virus that has killed thousand. If your kettle breaks boil a saucer but going on pictures before lockdown everyone seemed to be in the pubs. If your child soils the quilt you as a parent has a duty to give up yours to keep your child warm.

This is not for people to get there five minutes of internet fame.

People are still not fussed here despite lockdown.

My neighbour has a business selling window blinds and there was 5 cars outside their 2 houses this morning. Not exactly an essential business.

Parents (in their mid-70s) and cousins won't listen.

I've given up tbh, because no-one's listening.

TheChimp exactly as I feel too but I am listening but people's morals have disappeared. Parents in park with kids groups out gathering and my aera has a high number of cases we never coming out.

To be honest it sums up the Covid response in general, just a pure mess. Did you see this article? https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/tesco-apologises-after-wrongly-saying-22906623

You cant buy a quilt to keep your child warm but you can get a bottle of wine. Somethings not right and don't blame some of them for kicking off.

Ann1984 I agree its only 2 weeks and its not the end of the world but I'm sorry if alcohol is classed as essential then something is seriously wrong

I'm not in Wales so no lockdown for me but I'm in tier 3 and you wouldn't guess your non essential can still be bought from internet if you really need them. We going out as little as possible. I'm going to do everything I can to protect my family.

Some do have a point you try a kid if their birthday is in those two weeks that their birthday isn't essential. What is essential to one may not be to another. B&m learnt that from the beginning. ( My hubby works for B&M)

I do like the sentiment (protecting the smaller shops ) but sadly I think at times that they have forgotten that the internet and the likes of Amazon exist , so they are effectively driving more money away from all local shops onto the online traders .

By the way Ann, Stella is back down to £9.99 on Amazon . I said I'd post it when it dropped below £10 but someone beat me to it !
