Should be the end of the Eurovision for us, thankfully we left kid.

We were in Eurovision before we joined the EU and could be after we leave. EU membership is not a condition of entry.

Meanwhile as the EU is trying to set up a EU wide system to distribute ventilators to where the need is highest.. they are including us.

Brew.  I sincerely hope it turns out to be just a cough. I managed to acquire a humdinger  presumably from the flight as I was in Portugal  a while back. Nearly coughed inside out but came to no lasting harm .

Brew sorry to hear you're feeling a bit rough. It's probably only a problem connected with flying, being in hot and cold places.  At the moment we are having really warm weather during the day and it gets cool in the evenings. Often I get up in a morning with a slight cough and sore throat . It passes quickly. Hope so anyway keep safe .

Thank you nonna, the more I consider the symptoms the less inclined I am to think it's CV and more just a bit of a snotty nose and a sore throat.

You can't panic or bulk buy with a ration card.

Glad to hear it Brew but still be alert. This morning new rules, shopping once a week absolutely no running , biking , walking ,taking baby in pushchair. Heavy fines and 3 months prison in some cases . Drastic? Yes but we have to do it for the sake of ourselves and others.

Perhaps the first bit of good news on the subject.....seriously.

Apple had closed their shops in China for the last month, but they've now reopened  because they consider the worst may be over.

Just read on the BBC News website - China has reported no new cases in the last 24 hours. The first time that's happened since it started.

Reasons to be Cheerful. Number 2.

I no longer feel guilty about having another drink. Seems an insignificant thing now.

(Number 1 was the Euro Song Contest!)

I've just read there are so many people going online at the moment the EU is suggesting ISP's stream films in low resolution or risk slowing the internet down to a crawl.

I have just been out to go to the chemist to pick up my prescription and have a wander round the shops to admire the empty shelves. Got milk but bread is rarer than rocking horse teeth, tea and coffee about the same. There wasn’t any bird stuff for my bird feeders either strangely, unless someone has recipes to use it? 
I wore my mask for the first time, felt a bit silly, but then there was someone else in the supermarket with one as well. Gave each other a thumbs up and queued together at checkout. I did get some strange looks, but better safe than sorry and I have read that there are some who don’t have any symptoms but are still contagious which is quite scary.

Apparently a fight has broken out at the local Asda, this is really bringing out the worst in people, know now why I prefer my dog! Of course the scammers are on to it as well, didn’t take them long did it, I really do despair of some of the human race they really are despicable. 
So now I will be self isolating, just taking Kai out for a walk each day to get some exercise and fresh air. Got loads of pod casts to listen to and plenty of knitting etc. Just wish we knew when it will be over, at least the news from China is better, have to hope the virus doesn’t re-emerge when the lockdown is finally eased there.

Glad your cough has eased Brew, keep safe NonnB and family my thoughts are with you. Be healthy everyone.

I decided to have a go at self isolating, boredom didn't set in as i thought it would, just a bit confused why one box of 'Rice Crispies ' had 6743 and the other box had 6772 in it !!

Diane Abbott has called for the BBC to stop filming Casualty & Holby City so the staff can help out with the Corona-virus outbreak ....

Brew, if you've not coughed today, you must be using the wrong tobacco. Try smoking yer roll ups with a bit of stone dust or pepper.:rolleyes:

Went to the local farm shop this morning, it's usually quiet. They were only allowing 5 customers in at a time and people had to que outside. Never heard so many moaners because they had to wait. Well done to Bramcote farm shop for taking precautions and staying open and not raising prices.

No time to get bored here. 35 min on the rowing machine this morning and plenty of gardening to do - digging for England! Also lucky enough to have access to lots of quiet fishing venues. I'll be fly fishing on Blithfield reservoir tomorrow - about 4 miles of bank to roam on. No personal contact and plenty of fresh air. The only thing I'm likely to catch is a trout :biggrin:

I do believe that keeping up beat is a healthy thing to do.
