  1. The isolation absolutely did my head in over the summer, when my back decided to go la-la for three months. Couldn't work, couldn't walk, couldn't do much at all. This s a pain, but 10 days is a doddle by comparison. Hope you're holding up in your current predicament and that you remain well enough to enjoy the coming summer, and maybe catch a few fish.
  2. I generally use Asda or Morrisons. They're okay and slots can be had for a quid. Not so great for short notice deliveries though. The one thing I have just run out of is coffee filters. Looks like I'm going to have to dig out my French press.
  3. I don't, but there are rules about tendering processes and your usual sneering style of posting implies that you feel that there was some impropriety at hand. That being the case, one would assume that you have at the very least evaluated the options available for service delivery and concluded that someone else would have been a more suitable provider.
  4. Well, I'm currently on day five of my Covid house arrest and as it's something that is likely to affect others, it's worth having a think about things to do in preparation. Some of them I got right and some I missed. Medication: Keep a stock on hand and don't leave it until the last minute to stock back up. Power and gas: I inherited a key card system when I bought the house. If you have one, be sure to keep it topped up. Bread: I've been keeping 4 packs of part baked baguettes on hand for a while and just rotating new ones in as I use them. Eggs: These will last a mon
  5. Who do you think the contract should have gone to, and on what basis to you postulate that their bid would have represented better value for the taxpayer?

  9. The important question though is "how are you now"?
  10. I seem to remember France and Germany impounding lorries loaded with PPE and bound for the UK, so the pot appears to be calling the kettle black. A German dominated Europe where you are expected to carry your papers.... Well, that's certainly a novel idea!
  11. One of the options when you go on the .gov site is for a postal test. Ant's post suggests that there might be a few issues, but I'm sure the majority will work just fine.
  12. Get yourself to a walk/drive in testing site. I was the only one there when I went to the one in Kidderminster and got the results 36 hours latter. It takes about 5 - 10 minutes in total, but you do have to go through the rather tedious and poorly designed on-line booking procedure first. For me, I'm now on day 4 of symptoms and for me at least, it's no worse than a mild to moderate cold - others aren't so lucky. If I remember rightly, you'e in South Staffs - so Kidderminster or Dudley would probably be your local centres.
  13. Do you know, I still haven't made a will. I suppose I will have to get around to it at some point.
  14. Well, this isn't entirely unexpected: "Your coronavirus test result is positive. It means it’s likely you had the virus when the test was done. You must self-isolate immediately for 10 days". Still feels like a cold at the moment.
  15. No, no. I didn't invite you to pull up your soap box and start moaning again. I asked "What do you think they should have done differently?".
