I had the same thing in November last year. Not for three weeks though. It did occur to me to see how long I could not drink for (that's how I managed to give up smoking), but a world without beer is just too boring to contemplate.I got ill Easter last year, a kinda flu bug, went of beer for 3 weeks. Longest I've ever gone without a pint in my adult life.
Could you list every decision they have made as i am fairly sure they haven't got them all wrong.Well the Tories have got every decision wrong so far so why change it now?
I am not here to defend Boris or the Tories but i do wish when you scattergun the coronavirus threads with your anti Boris posts you would at least do me and the other members the decency of replying to reply's to your post especially when they prove them to be wrong rather than ignore them and moving on to your next anti Boris post..Now that useless idiot has told Dr Khan to watch her tone. Defend that Chippy or should I watch my tone.
That will force all working parents to stay off to look after them if lockdown is eased.
The way its going when lockdown is eased most people still wont go out as they wont fit through the front door!!I can't and won't say how others feel but i am at a point now were i want to go out, i am retired so i can do mostly what i want i am now in my 7th week of lockdown and am totally fed up with it, i know this might sound daft but i could get in the car right now and just drive to blackpool or anywere thats how i feel, i won't though i really feel for those who are locked down with kids there is no escape for them or a high rise or garden or yard it must be awful, the only thing thats keeping me going along with it is my hobby of brewing well to a certain extent i may even not like beer anymore if it goes on much longer never drank as much in my life or eaten as much
This is the problem and its going to be a hard balance to strike working or trying to work from hoem with kids is a very difficult. Not sustainable at all. Plus routine and all that is very imprtant for children growing up and all that . LIke I said in posst above my work place are not going to tolerate it forever.
I am not any advocate for coming out of things until we are ready but at the same time I have neevr understood the perception of why its such a controversal opinion on this forum that getting the economy going in some form is important.
I maintain the opinion that this virus will kill more people and ruin more lives from its economical effect long term
People were phoning 5 live in the last couple of days saying they have never seen so many cars on the road if the government relax the rule on travelling to holiday homes and places where you can walk the dog or walk/run its going to get a lot worse, i feel sorry for people who work in the fuel filling stations they have to take cash and take signed receipts their risk of catching this is going to multiply many times over in the next few weeks.The way its going when lockdown is eased most people still wont go out as they wont fit through the front door!!
IN all seriousness I train a lot from home anyway but last night I had a great opportunity to go for a run for the first time in weeks and when lockdown first came in it was silent around yesterday I had to dodge so many people.. even say a group of teenages walking down teh canal drinking beers.. I was amazed at how normal it looked and I think a lot of people are just breaking it casually now anyway
It could be because people have just realized its a bank holiday friday and are off to stock up? - lets hope.Just cycled home and rush hour is more or less back to normal. I think people are hearing the message the lockdown is going to end soon so are thinking, 'seeing as it's ending soon, I may as well go out now'. 649 deaths and 6,111 new cases today. This isnt going to end well
These fuckwits should be made to sit down and read stories like this (from our local paper)Just cycled home and rush hour is more or less back to normal. I think people are hearing the message the lockdown is going to end soon so are thinking, 'seeing as it's ending soon, I may as well go out now'
