Hi! again! Another day of shock,horror! You’ve probably seen that we are getting deeper into the proverbial with lockdown in Melb. being extended for a further 6 weeks and now covers all of metropolitan Melb., still including Housing Commission blocks and some country areas.
NSW border will be closed from midnight tomorrow except for people with special permits, yet to be issued! Working that out will be a logistical nightmare because, for example, Albury -Wadonga are two towns facing opposite each other on the border, (River Murray) NSW and Vic, with half the population of each working across the border.
There are 55 crossings of the border requiring several hundred police and Army personnel to control.!
All lockdown controls to revert back to “tough!”
Weather still crook! Grey sky all day and fine drizzle!
Shawlands Welcome and so are your positive messages! Makes a change from some other threads! (Who said that?)
Hope you stay! Where are you from? Not being nosey, but it helps to have a mental picture just for conversational purposes. Guess you’ve spent all that tax refund by now including its interest!
Grandmabatty; Thank you, 10 out of 10 so far! Do these words have appropriate Scotch adjectives, or is that automatically implied? I was teached “hoots mon” by the Goon Show characters, along with “Och Aye”, which I’m sure you’ve laughed at. Anyway, I do know now that “Scotch” is reserved for inanimate things such as whisky, eggs, porage, salmon mist etc. and not humans.
I’ll bet your kitchen is a magnet for wasps with all your jam making, but unfortunately I think it’s bee stings are said to be good for rheumatics; but as gym lovers say, no gain without pain!
I’m surprised that we get very few European wasps here because I’d expect them to proliferate with such relatively mild Winters. Now, flies! That’s something else!.
Megs; Shielding must be a necessary evil and obviously wouldn’t suit Alf Garnett with his regular outings to the pub! We’re surprised to see on TV News how relaxed everyone, or many anyway, seem to be regarding lack of social distancing around pubs and the like!
My nephew’s better half, Michelle of Bournemouth, she of the “beige cardi “saga, said last evening that they can visit their local regularly for a meal. Btw. she reminded me that it’s not only beige cardis, but shoes, skirts, coat and head scarves! Hardly beach wear!
