We gave a home to 2 Kittens at the weekend they needed litter and managed to get that also. They are Arthur and Elsie 10 weeks siblings abandoned. In good health but timid. Not yet introduced them to Lucy dog and tri paw Albert.

I have visions of fun times ahead . . . when the two kittens discover that dreadlocks are good playthings.  ;)  :D

Hi

Has anyone received a text from uk gov telling you to stay at home

Funny to be honest, as I fall into the key worker sector so do have to travel a little

Congrats guis3, our last remaining cat is very old, in palliative care but keeps bouncing back

Many thanks

John

Hope everyone is ok.

The guy who delivers my medication turned up today with a mask on, telling me he will carry on as long as he can and he is sorry if he stops, I told him he is a hero and not to worry if he stops.  He is in his 60s as well.

That's a good link @Chrysalis

The Ocado delivery turned up and everything was there.

Standing about 2 metres I asked him how work was. He said they are extremely busy. But its gradually peaking off.

Got to give a heroes credit to all these delivery peoples for foods, medications/NHS and any other essentials.

They are life savers for many people.

Some bin men have seen a 50% rise in re-cycled food waste in the past week  :o some of it not even opened.   >:(

 A Lorry driver who delivers to supermarkets is finding the selfish car drivers are parking in the designated area for delivery lorries so he could not get in to deliver the much wanted items, after no one came out after a tannoy  announcement asking to move there cars, also some people were coming up to him to find out what he was delivering and giving him a lot of flack .
He could do no more but to take his full load away to the distribution centre, off load it and take another ordered load to another supermarket.    :(

Yes, I got it. I think the intention is to send this to everybody with a mobile phone. The link in the message takes you to the government instruction from yesterday. It's not special for those who receive it. The truly vulnerable have been (or are being) written to.

I got the text.  My understanding is theyíre not really coming directly from Govt; the Govt have simply asked all networks to send it to all their own subscribers.

Possibly just a PR stunt.   Iím not sure I approve, as it may encourage people to think itís OK to open links in unsolicited text messages, as long as they Ďcome from the Govtí. :-\

Are those messages being sent out by the various service providers, on behalf of the Government? I presume that is the case . . . unless it is being done by GCHQ.  :-X

Do we believe everything that emanates from the BBC?  :-X  (Rhetorical question.)

MOT exemptions

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/vehicle-owners-to-be-granted-mot-exemption-in-battle-against-coronavirus

We had one of ours serviced & MOTíd last week.  Good to get it done and to have confidence it is safe, but one of the very few compromises to our household isolation.
