Sending condolences to biggins. I am sure you will find a way to p*y tribute to your aunt but of course you must take care of yourself too. Thinking of you at this tough time.

Oh, biggins. Really sorry to hear that. Like ejwrank says, I'm sure you'll find your own way of celebrating her life and mourning.

When my uncle died last year and there was a direct cremation, I took the day off and spent it reflecting on our relationship, his life and having a good ole' sob. Setting aside some time on the actual day of the cremation to deal with it helped me see it as final, even though I wasn't physically there. I hope you find your own coping mechanism.

Sending you all my love. xx

Not that I'm condoning buffoon Trump in any way, but is referring to Covid-19 as "Chinese Virus" so different to us referring to the epidemic of 1918 as Spanish Flu?
Maybe Wuhan Flu?
Is still a bloody insensitive and idiotic thing to say all the same.

most difficult thing so far is the worry.

is my nasal soreness me just blowing my nose too much?

is my head sore from just watcing too much tv last night without glasses?

no temperature though so its just self induced worry, but you cant help but worry you may hurt someone else.


Also, less important but somehow perhaps more in the long run - I wonder how many people are going to use this as an excuse to bunk off work anyway (when working in isolated jobs anyway), since you dont need medical evidence for it, the econmy is going to suffer bigtime.
No, I do not want to see Bad Boys, ok?

The reality of it all is starting to hit home, three friends out of work now for the foreseeable future, two work in the kids breakfast club in schools, and another one does fitness classes in gyms & Community centres in the surrounding areas! 😭

Until the government shuts down the pubs and the beaches are closed in the US (did you see the pics of Florida beaches full of young people on Spring break?), a lot of people will not take this seriously. We certainly could do with more courageous and smarter leaders during this crisis.

Well, London is said to go into lockdown by this weekend.

Also, a shout out to local corner shops. They might be more expensive but they still have food that bigger supermarkets don't.

One more thing to remember.
This is still flu season, it hasn't gone away because a more dangerous disease has turned up.
You can still get colds and flu.
Its a good job cv19 has different symptoms so we can tell the difference.

Wow! 40 tube stations closed in London. More will close. Looks like we are heading for a complete lock down. This is surreal
