Cheaper than a night out, still A night out I can’t have So, in broad terms, fuck it

Had my first day/night off the drink yesterday. Felt strange not to be sat in the sun with a glass of something. And then chilling in the lounge later without a glass of red. 
Aiming to do it again today. 
Reckon we’ve drank 7-10 days non-stop recently.

Green for garden & food waste. They’ve cancelled these for the foreseeable future but did one last collection last week. Everyone was out trimming their bushes. Even my Mrs!!

The new instruction is to place food waste with our general waste - but I’m too conditioned now to be able to do it. 

Black bin for glass, some plastic, foil, etc. 

Blue is cardboard and paper. 

Grey (our smallest bin of all) is general waste. 

Regarding the tips - pain in the arse. Reckon more so than ever they should be open. Every man and his dog is pottering around and clearing off the guff they’ve stored for many years!

I didn't know there was so much regional variance on bin colours

black: standard

Green: garden and food waste

Blue: cardboard

Brown: bottles

Currently, no green collections so that all goes in black, and blue and brown every four weeks

Which is not enough for the amount we're drinking

Chorley have changed a fair bit over the years, most recent being your brown bin that was garden waste turned into your cardboard/paper bin and you have to pay £20 a year for a grey bin for garden waste.

Our bin of shame got a reset today.

Gonna aim (loosely) to not drink til Thursday nights virtual quiz night. 

Given its two nights that should be doable.

Anyone else been sensing an increasing feeling of tension in the air in the last week or so?

Some absolute dickhead driving, some moody faces/encounters in the supermarkets, also plenty of knobbers blatantly flouting the social distancing rules.

Not sure how long this lockdown can last without some form of major disorder, i think patience is wearing a bit thin in certain quarters

Drivers going way too fast.

Cyclists on the pavements despite the roads being quieter.

An increasing number of people going round to others houses for a chat (keeping 2m away, of course)

Yep, annoying as fuck

Colours exactly the same over here in East Manc 

Used to be green bin emptied every week with the other three on a weekly rotation 

Now it’s grey/black only. No recycling bin collected at all

Seems weird not recycling but at least I don’t have the shame of a bin being emptied of 3 weeks worth of wine and gin bottles

On the subject of bins it really does me off.

We got a smaller black bin, and less frequent collections. 
Im fine with the once a fortnight collection but I just want my big bastard bin back.

To be honest, I've not noticed anything untoward. No more so than normal. Arguably, since all this kicked off, folk have been a little less "rushed".

Had a couple of people walking in the road instead of the pavement for some strange reason- no one else around so no need to, but other than that nothing obvious.

He'd no doubt be one of those twats who, once at the front (no problem there) would proceed to go through a red light because nothing is coming.
