If Outdoor running is banned I have a gym with weights, treadmill, bike, rowing machine 

Under the stairs is half way to being converted to a sauna

The sprogs paddling pool is getting an airing out right now 

Our Maude is an angry Irish so she’ll be doing sparring sessions 
 

Then head to the Shed for a well earned pint and a game of arrows

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Aye, the supermarket cleaners are more essential than ever

There's a lot of people involved in keeping public services open

And supermarkets

They are looking to hire "thousands" to keep things going

And most of them Will have had a completely different job a week or so ago

Exactly, there are lots opportunities at the moment,even if they are short term.

It’s a sad situation when the McDonalds statement has made the thicker members of the extended family realise that we may have a problem

Im now in isolation. Nowt to do with the virus. I called them all thick cunting fuckwits for a having a Mother’s Day meal at the sister in laws and they now won’t speak to me. And the matriarch is sat in Royal Oldham with pneumonia on a ventilator 

Hard work when it’s your own being cunts

It's a bad do. My aunt posted on facebook on friday night in a packed pub as a last hurrah. Her daughters told her she was an idiot but she actually replied she was more likely to catch it at work. She works as a hospital receptionist. I fucking give up.

If it does come to a lock down and they stop running outdoors, I'd recommend running up and down stairs for a time limit you set yourself.

I can run miles cross country. But three flights of stairs and my legs want to pack it in...

In lockdown last week on holiday overseas. Sneaked out of my room to nearest flight of stairs and ran up and down them for a good 20 mins.
Mainly 1 step at time for beginner. 
2 steps here and there for intermediate. 
3 steps for advanced. 
And 4 steps for the nose breaker level!
Whenever I work from home I tend to use my stairs as part of my workout.

A sauna under your stairs? 
 

WTF is that all about?

Don't know where you've got that from but there is no mention of people who have to go to work on there.

Only essential workers go to work in a lockdown.

Aye, just thought it was odd that piece Micky posted didn't mention it,  otherwise it seemed pretty comprehensive.

 

I think I probably found it on FB. To be honest, I think they will undoubtedly have an essential workers policy and undoubtedly a list just like we have. I think the problem with the UK list is that it is extremely wide. Just about everyone could justify being out and about if they wanted to. 
I work for a local funeral director, does that make me an essential worker? I'd argue it doesn't; all I do is drive either a limo or a hearse and carry a coffin into church/crem. Or then I could argue that I am just because I work in the funeral business. 

An NHS worker is on the list but unless they are actually travelling to or from a workplace WHICH IS TREATING CORONA VICTIMS then are they really essential?

Are there lots of people up for taking them though? 

That's the next big fallout, isn't it? As supermarket workers and others fall ill/have to isolate, a lack of people willing to replace them as everyones getting 80% of their wages for doing nothing.

Would make sense to me that if employers are giving the government a list of workers that are furloughed, and there are vacancies springing up across essential services, then it shouldn't be too difficult to match one to the other.

Unfortunately other diseases, illnesses, injuries, treatments haven’t stopped because of Corona, many NHS workers are surely needed in other capacities?

Ok, reworded; a nurse is on a day off. Is she/he still an essential worker on that day?

Not that day but what’s your point? That day is probably their day to go to the supermarket?

Ferry. My in laws are off to a wedding from the family of the people who own the ferries between mainland and Orkney so it’s also a free ferry which is even better! 
We are just piggybacking onto the weekend. I’m doing the north coast 500 either side of it. 

Which one? Short sea crossing, I’ve a connection as well

Wife works for the NHS and did that “NHS” shopping hour at Tesco Middlebrook yesterday, she said it was fucking farcical. Massive queues & empty shelves.

How’s it policed 

do they have to show some id?
