Lockdown seems to be working here. A couple of cars and a handful of people and that's that.

All good.

It was 15 and cloudy where I am. I am in the grim north though. Obviously people should get out for a bit of exercise/fresh air, but not grilling out in parks in groups.

It was beautiful here in Brum, very sunny and warm but not too warm, perfect pub garden weather dammit.

Apparently it's going be sunny and mild here tomorrow, fingers crossed. Would like to at least sit in the garden for a bit.

15 is balmy, friend - lovely melancholic vibe

There are weird misconceptions and so on though, on the way home Mr. H popped into a Premier corner shop to get some vape liquid, and I just casually mentioned we could get some pasta if they had any. A woman working there overheard and scornfully said "We don't have pasta, no one has any pasta!" as if it was ridiculous I'd even considered it. There were two shops within a minute's walk of there that had plenty, it was only because we were already in her shop that I even mentioned it. It's really not as bad as it's being depicted online in a lot of places, but yeah that's enormously dependent on where you are.

Yes, all the booze was gone in the shop at the end of the road (save one, poignant pack of Corona), plus fruit and veg, meat, bog roll etc, you know the drill by now. Ashen faces, cunts tutting at shop assistants. Twenty seconds walk away the other slightly scabbier looking shop had everything. Ales from every corner of the earth (Yorkshire). Looooooads of Freddos.

My idiot busybody neighbour has decided this is the perfect time to have a new roof installed. And, because he is an impossibly nosy busybody piece of shit, he spent the whole time on the roof getting up close and personal with the roofing crew, chatting with them and making sure they did the job properly (not that he has the faintest clue what they were doing; he's just one of those self-professed experts on everything that actually knows nothing). I am genuinely looking forward to his imminent death.

It's a shit lockdown because I went to work this morning, went to the shop when I came home and went for a short walk. All allowed, all outside my house.
Lockdown my arse.

So far, but really feeling the need to irresponsibly nip to the shop for booze and chocolate.  The small pleasures in life of which are somewhat lacking - rationing my beers at the moment, it just won't do.

If memory serves, it wasn't my garden or my fence.

But what I consider "essential" and what the popo consider "essential" may differ!

Still, they probably have better things to do

Well you know, that and the risk of bringing the wrong type of corona home to the parents.

All the joggers are out.  I think all these facebook twats think lockdown is a great opportunity for them to get into the shape of their lives!  Fuck that, it's a good opportunity for me to get extra fat and watch absurd amounts of TV.  or maybe they are all usually down the gym?

Two policemen were walking down the street knocking on people's doors, and blatantly not observing 2m distancing to the poor person who opened up.  We decided that we would talk to the dirty bastards through the door.  But they never knocked on our door.  Fuck knows what that was all about.

They're asking your neighbours if they'd heard that you're a nonce innit.

I am at my mothers at the mo - she’s out of hospital now (mass discharge from reading on Monday btw)
I grew up here and it’s very close to the M4, I took the dogs for a lunchtime walk yesterday and it was the first time since the 80s where there wasn’t a constant roar from that bloody road - no cunts about either so just a serene peaceful walk in the sun, I massively enjoyed it I must say, looking forward to today’s

On the topic of going out - can you cyclist cunts just stop? Don’t the nhs already have enough to worry about without you idiots gonna by out and doing your high risk exercise? Pricks

We're being responsible and because Mrs Alberon has been ill, but is fully better now, she can't leave the house till Friday, and I can't leave until a week Friday. Saw a few people passing yesterday, mostly dogwalkers, but also a couple of kids who, to be fair, seemed to be jogging.

Thankfully the last few days we've sat out on the patio in the sunshine and it's almost hot. Won't last into the weekend, but it's been nice to sit out there and get some fresh air.

One of my colleagues at work is deemed in a high risk group. She's been told to self-isolate for twelve weeks. In a flat. I love my books, games and TV shows, but I'd be climbing the walls inside of a fortnight.

I never imagined it would be a deadly flu pandemic that would close the gym that I'm at war with but a victory is a victory. Silence is golden and the bedroom window is open.

Ireland now in lockdown since yesterday but I downloaded a nice cache of films to watch so who cares? Wonder if my muscles will atrophy from under use soon.

Cycling banned now in France, innit? Also, I trust by now everyone's seen that video of various mayors around Italy losing their shit with their citizens, including one mayor personally going outside to order a pair of dozy eejits to stop playing fucking ping pong and get back indoors.
This lockdown in England souns a bit half- assed to me. At least here in Moscow we've got the especially released lions roaming the streets to keep us all indoors.

The old twenty pound notes don't go out of date for ages do they? I don't think the bank have set a date yet.

Don't understand the animosity towards cyclists. Just let people exercise how they like. As long as they're not riding around in packs and spitting in the faces of passersby, it's none of your business.

With the roads less busy drivers are not as alert as usual - they are going out and putting themselves at risk of being hit by a car and it is simply not necessary
The nhs do its need to be dealing with Colin in his “team sky” Lycra being nobbled of his bike at this moment
