  1. But still complying.... I'm not a lover of apps to be honest, any app, so tend not to have many of them on my phone.
  2. I had a funny one last week, I did my usual and said I have to do track and trace and can I have their details and they told me they were giving me a fake name! By all means, write or give a different name but don't tell me in advance that is what you are going to do. Silly man, I'd have not been the wiser had he not told me.
  3. Or just do the written log in rather than the app log in. The written log in goes nowhere (unless there is a positive result from somewhere else and they are honest/actually remember all the places they have been) and gets destroyed after 21 days. I don't have the app, I just do the written log in. If anyone asks or insists (a written log option has to be provided), I don't have a phone that has the capability (I do but they don't need to know that)
  4. I didn't actually say that. I said MY life was fairly normal now, I didn't comment on anyone else. I have been impacted, heavily so - financially, emotionally, mentally and with the loss of people I love since the pandemic began (vast majority not Covid related or logged as such). Funerals have been awful because of the restrictions and I am pleased to see a lot of the restrictions have been eased in that area as we have had to miss the funerals of loved ones and indeed, had to work within very tight restrictions for funeral attendance for my dad's one who died during the short November lockdown. We couldn't have a wake, you can have one now with a decent amount attending, we had a very tight limit on how many could attend the service, the number is only limited to the size of the venue now with safe distancing (for where we had my dad's service, with the current rules we could have fitted at least 3 or 4 times the amount in). Mum was stuck with a very small amount of people who could console her (just me and my boys as we were already a bubble) and no-one allowed inside her home apart from us, for a widow who had been married for 60 years, this has been incredibly difficult. All of her care was down to me, my siblings and their families were not allowed to come in the house to help with funeral arrangements, blimey at the time they couldn't even be in her garden legally. Do you know how hard that is? How emotionally difficult that is? How damaging that is? A damn sight harder than not being able to go abroad for a holiday at the moment or having to book to go to the pub I can tell you! Financially, the last year or so has been a killer. Yes I received furlough but 80% of not a lot to start with is really not great, made worse by the fact that extra hours that had just started were not able to be included. The most recent furlough period was even worse as it worked out at about 55% of what I had been earning and have been earning since returning last month. So yes, it is great that we are now allowed to be open and I can go back to earning something that resembles a passable income. We've been harder hit than pubs, we had to close at the same time and have had to stay closed longer and have the same restrictions on numbers as them too.
  5. Now even I don't believe that!
  6. A lot round here have got creative with space and can have pretty much the same capacity as before. Much like we have at work, we gave up a staff room/area to retain the same customer numbers, we're leisure/recreation so amongst the hardest hit.
  7. Oh god yes! Mind you, they would probably still park over the line even if the space was bigger.

    Is there anyone going to this meeting who would be able to text updates to the Updates site? If so, could you please send me a private message which includes your mobile number. Thanks
  9. Things are almost normal for me Still going into work - Did that before. Did have to spend a significant amount of time furloughed but that all went back to normal last month. Not going to the pub - Same as before apart from the odd gig (which I can still do but they are tending to be when I am at work annoyingly....as before). Round here there is a booking system but they are doing walk ups too so you can still go to a pub without a booking. Can't go abroad for a holiday - Didn't before, I holiday here and that is going ahead as planned. We can buy tickets on the gate for Speedway although pre booking is advised. Didn't go to football anyway The only real thing different for me is having to wear a mask at work when a customer is in or when I am shopping - Didn't have to do it before but I'm not too fussed about it, I was face covering before the mask mandate came in. Haven't had to queue for a shop for ages now and in the entire pandemic, have only had to do it once. Life is pretty much back to normal for me now. Re part of the restrictions to be lifted still, I actually like the extra room in restaurants, not on a virus risk basis but because it is so much easier and better to get a ruddy wheelchair into places now and no seat backs being propelled into you because there is too little room for people to move.
  10. Yep, just seen that. A real shame.
