We have had a thread like this before, I think, but I'll never be able to find the previous one, so let's have another.

There was "I've finished washing the shopping", which came into our lives earlier this year. This week I've had another one - "I've got an appointment at the library to take my books back." Any more?

About to go out to do shopping, check you have the essentials, money, cards, specs, list.....oh, and mask of course.

Sorry you can't pop in to see your brother while he is here as that would make 7 of us

We'll get together, for a zoom.

“I am going to a library two miles away to collect a book I requested before lockdown from the library just up the road.”

“ My Granny might have been right when she said that library books are nasty germy things”.

I think I'm really getting the hang of this online board game

Illte Sat 19-Sep-20 16:05:25

'It all depends on whether the government change the rules again'

As in 'I've booked a birthday meal out for tomorrow, but whether we get it........

My wheelie bin goes out more than I do.

Only 3 people allowed in at a time. You will have to wait outside (in the rain)

Whitewavemark2 Sat 19-Sep-20 16:20:22

I’ll leave your birthday present and card on the doorstep, ring the bell, and then wave from the bottom of the drive!!

Alegrias Sat 19-Sep-20 16:37:48

Don't worry, I've brought my own cutlery, and some bleach.

I need to ring the charity shop to see if they're accepting donations.

NannanTo4 Sun 20-Sep-20 09:11:05

I’m not going to the pub

Minerva Sun 20-Sep-20 09:13:27

I’m shielding. Would you please step back while I take the shopping from your crates.

moobox Sun 20-Sep-20 09:14:05

No, you can’t come into the garden. I’ll meet you in the crowded pub down the road in a few minutes.
