In ordinary circumstances where would you have chosen to spend it.
The Gower coast for me - and I'll be there as soon as all this is over.

I don't wear a hat.

Posted by: firefox (1493) Report abuse

Posted by: tonker (21366)   Report abuse
Is it a brown hat?

My word, another one?

I absolutely LOVE the Lake District.
We holiday there one or two weeks each year.
This year is most problematic with Coronavirus.
I hope it can be controlled and allow movement of people later in the year.
We stay at a fantastic self catering property called The Coach House at White Moss near Grasmere, visit ‘Cumbrian Cottages’ website.
It was once owned by William Wordsworth, who bought it for his son.
It has been thoroughly modernised inside and sits in an acre of land.
Not a cheap property to rent but we get totally chilled when we visit.

I’d be quite happy walking locally, somewhere like up Wigan Flight to Haigh Hall.

Was quite content to be out in the garden today.
Not sure how long that will last. I like getting out and about but a big no, no at this present time.

Posted by: tomplum (6188)  Report abuse
a kindly reminder, there are 4 reasons only to go out

1. essential shopping
2. exercise, riding a motoe bike or car is not exercise
3 going to work and returning
4.medical reasons, doctor appoinments

we are in lock in,

Usually I am quite happy spending a day working in the garden.

However, garden had become my main social connection. You have to pass my garden to get in or out of the locality where I live, and almost all the neighbours would stop and chew the fat. Also, were I sitting having a coffee or an alcoholic drink, they know a spare cup/glass is always on hand but no passers-by now.

Yet another beautiful day.
More gardening for me.
What are people doing to fill their time while isolating.

Mainly in the garden weather permitting, knitting when darkness has descended. When the cooler weather arrives it's a good time to clean, organise the greenhouse. Before doing any planting in there I will finish painting garden furniture, an ideal place Following that a tidy up and reorganise my attic workroom after the winter work done up there. It's never ending, how people become bored is beyond me.

I might have imagined it but I seem to remember someone forecasting snow for us next week. Wonder if snowballs will be outlawed.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:
Cold on Sunday and Monday with a fresh breeze and a few wintry showers. Less windy on Tuesday, but still chilly. Rather cloudy but with some sunny spells at times.

I -spy I should imagine the virus can live on snow

Posted by: i-spy (14699)  Report abuse
I won't be chucking one at you then PeterP

I am told these viruses don’t mind cold. They don’t like hotter weather. That is why the normal flu viruses are at their peak in Winter. .
