  1. Day 11 since I first tested positive & I've still got 2 solid LFT lines. Under govt regs I can now go out & about even though I'm still testing positive, but I don't feel comfortable going to anywhere indoor. Most weekends my wife & myself go to a line dance somewhere local, but I wont be going unless I test negative....

  6. Hi Alpha and Jill Sparrow Apologies for delay in replying. Other memories are of walking past the garage at the top of Maud Street on the way to school and the delightful smell of some kind of solution that wafted out from there. As you got to the top of Maud Street and turned left, there was a little shop that was divided into 2 parts, first half of shop being sweets, papers etc and the second half a grocery type store, I remembered being allowed to weigh out the potatoes! I had two lovely friends who lived just across the road from Hope Cottages on Maud Street, Ja

  8. I posted this on the Nottingham from the owd days Facebook group as I was looking for more information. Found out that the building in the background was the old Heathfield Pub / Hotel on Arnold Road, Basford. My dad, Derek Chawner, is front centre: I knew he was in the Boys Brigade but apparently this was the junior section then known as the Life Boys for around 8 - 11 year olds.

  10. They're all stood facing Arnold Road, on the end of Heathfield road. Have you any idea of the year Rye? My missus had an Auntie Lily, who lived at the other end at no.1.

  12. Today was the first day that I have felt reasonably well following a week with a heavy cold. Not had a cold for years and can't remember one as bad as this. Several LFT's proved negative. Anyway, yesterday and today I wrote a short story, intended for juniors, for our club magazine. It is entitled The Enchanted Trout and is about 3 trout who are on a mission to help our Planet. Our club chairman liked it so much that he wants more instalments, so it is becoming a trilogy. I even did a steady 70 minutes on the bike and rower, so things are looking up. Life is good

  13. Now that people don't have to get a PCR test after a positive LFT, there will be a lot fewer cases reported, as I suspect that not everyone will report their positive LFT. So expect 'a dramatic drop in cases' in the next few days...

  14. I know I left school many decades ago but wouldn’t it depend on volume not mass as to whether all the virus in the world would fit in a bucket?

  15. BK. We have been in there ONCE. Never to be repeated. I agree with every thing you have written. Ask Catfan, he will point you in the direction of a good Chippy in Skeggy. Our favourite at the moment is right up the end of the promenade, turn left at Seaview pub and a few yards down is 'The proper little chippy' used by the locals. Gotta be good.

  16. !sickly! Unfortunately there was no show from our American cousins Elaine and Dan. Mick has suggested why as to their absence, but that didn’t quench Frank and my selves’ thirst for quaffed as many pints as we could of that much loved Harvest Pale down our open necks within the time confines we both found ourselves in. A big thank you goes to Chrissies husband for keeping my throat lubricated and not forgetting frank my master at arms who too kept me topped up with the greatest beer on the planet. Mick was as usual on form and went early to catch the last stage coach back to Sawley after qu
