How is everyone doing. The UK is now 72 days into the Coronavirus Pandemic. For us it all began on the 31st January. How the time has flown and yet there are more people dying and still people are NOT listening to the guidelines. Yes I know it is the Easter weekend, but we have been asked repeatedly to stay at home. Only leave home for food, medication and exercise. It would seem that some people think that when they go out for their exercise it takes all day and requires a picnic. NO NO NO. Even here today, we have seen more walkers and cyclists and there have been more cars on the road. Now of course some of those people will have been sticking to the restrictions, but having listened to some of the people walking over the bridge, some were out on a jolly. I will repeat myself yet again for those who are reading this and not getting it.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STAY AT HOME. YOU WILL BE HELPING TO SAVE LIVES. Today 917 people lost their lives, that brings the total number of deaths we know of to 9875. This does not include those who have died in care homes or at home :-(
We are at home on our mooring and following the restrictions to the letter. I have not actually left the Arm at all yet, because I am actually too worried to do so. Keith only went to the post office, because he had too. But he went straight there, and came straight back. With so much time on our hands, it is a great time to get done all the jobs we have put off, or had no time to do. One of those jobs was our hosepipe bunker. It used to house the other moorers tumble drier, but as we do not have one, I store out hosepipe and bits and bobs in there. Anyway we noticed that our long bunker lid which is connected to it was always wet, I then figured out that when it rained it was seeping through the felt and into the long bunker.
