I can get a seat on the train, with either side of me empty as well (continuous row of seats along the carriage facing inwards).

I like bells.  When I lived within earshot I would open the windows to listen.

Working men's club shut .No karaoke , No pissheads shouting good night at midnight . No fucking droning bingo calling on sunday afternoon . No auld biddys blocking the street waiting to pick up the old man . No abandoned taxis ( the club gets used as an unofficial taxi office ). I can get a parking spot outside my house . The club sold their car park because it was not kneaded . My arse

The probable cancellation of our holiday in France late May to mid-June will mean veggie sowing and planting can proceed uninterrupted. And our chances of a varied diet of fresh fruit and veg is improved.

We have a "rag & bone man" who patrols the streets whilst his sidekick rings a handbell out of the pickup truck's passenger window. It was a sufficiently sunny morning that we had the patio doors open.

I shouted (and I am very good at shouting) "Bring out your dead! Bring out your dead!"

I hope he heard me.

Backing training off has meant that I have been able to visit an osteopath and a physio and address some niggles.  Working from home means I can do this during the day.

After three years of feeling guilty for imposing 3 years of after school club on my 8yo son, I get to spend lots of time with him before he grows up.

The Railway Hotel (anag: Hot Willy Area), run by socially responsible Green Party chaps, closed a few night ago. However, they have been busy.

https://www.facebook.com/RailwayHotelSouthend/

They have started to broadcast lives streams of bands playing to an empty bar.

They have started to sell beer online, delivered to your door, Southend area only.

I have just ordered 4 pints of Ghost Ship for £10.

Bach without a doubt.
