  1. We are having issues with fires near me. There have been 4 or 5 on the moors around here. Not sure if these are idiots with BBQ's / camp fires, arson or accidental. It's been very dry here so does not take much for a fire to get out of control.
  2. Yes, I agree, stay safe and I hope your house and neighbourhood are ok.
  3. England has had one of the warmest and sunniest springs on record when we have not been able to take advantage. What are the odds that when they restrictions are finally lifted, the weather will change. Or maybe it will autumn or even winter by then.
  4. The Great Tits left their nest today, 7 of them, now hiding in the garden, still being fed by parents.
  5. It seems we had some campers near here, who thought it was a good idea to have a BBQ. Setting a forest on fire in the process. Idiots.
  6. It could be too sad to see all those shops with nowhere to go. Hopefully, we will be on QV, but maybe not with the big bands.
  7. That's the one, I have booked. Was a very good price and includes breakfast.
  8. Thanks for the advice. I have a booking with Holiday Inn Express in Southampton for August. If the cruise is cancelled but the hotel is open, I might go anyway and then move on somewhere for a few days.
  9. I have received email confirmation that I will get refunds for the rail tickets for June so that is good. But still nothing from Holiday Inn about when I can expect a refund from them. It has been cloudy here all day, but clear now so off to watch the ISS pass overhead.
  10. Some shops and outdoor markets here in England will open in June, with other shops opening later in the month. No news yet on when pubs will be able to re-open.
  11. I am thankful that at present, I don't have anything more to worry about than my next cruise. The thing I am missing most is visiting my friend who I have not seen since March. My June cruise (not with Cunard) has been cancelled so now booked for July 2021. I have cancelled the hotels and trains. So far Premier Inn as the only ones to have processed a refund. They were very quick so a big thank you to them. We had home grown potatoes today, not very big, but lovely.
  12. I am luck enough to have a garden but I can also I am within walking distance of the countryside. I can understand why people who live in cities want to travel. Maybe I am greedy, but I don't want to share my countryside visit with thousands of others even when things were "normal".
  13. I had an email from work today, still no date for when I will be back. But I don't think it will be within the next week or so.
  14. Clearly that person does not know anyone who had been badly hit. For most it's a minor thing, but not for all and as I don't know which I would be, I would rather not find out.
