    They’re a friendly lot at the garage, and one of the service mechanics has T2 so his were a few (?) of the slim style choc bics. The first car bought from them was way back in 1978, so I think a bulk-priced single mask isn’t a big ask! All four of us, me, himindoors, both daughters, bought hybrids from them, second hand, between 2016 and 2018 so maybe four masks? my car was the biggest car purchase I’ve ever made (gulp) and it needs to last until we all have to go electric.
    It’s also got a couple of great places to put the jelly babies.

    OMG, the garage have really adapted to safe communications - I’ve just had an online video of bits of the car that need work now, and wear on tyres for 3 months’ time, with an online authorisation sheet. I’m impressed!!!!!

    Evening all!

    I have concluded I was lacking in fresh air after yesterday's slumping combined with closing the windows as it was decidedly chilly and so I have just returned from a long walk in the rain. I hate walking in the rain, normally, but it cleared the cobwebs and the headache which had been niggling all day with no apparent cause then meant I had no qualms about shoving everything I'd been wearing in the machine, me in the bath, and then back onto the sofa.

    Normality is slowly kind of sort of returning - simplified and well-distanced church services restart in my place on Sunday, no singing or after church refreshments, but I can go and play the organ at appropriate times and places.

    We've done the last of the video calls with students for this year and can only hope for a more usual way of life, for them and us, in the new academic year, but I know there are plans in place for continuing current ways if we need to.

    Welcome @Nicola M

    Oh I just love that @Antje77 It would be worth it to try to do it before my next in person endo appointment. She is always asking about me wearing my Dexcoms for so long as I keep restarting them..................I'd really love to be able to say I've started screwing them on!!!! I think I would use temporary glue though lol.............I wear each transmitter in a sensor 90 days. OOOh I wish I could do that on my dogs Libre for her next vet appointment, they had never seen a Libre until I put one on my dog, but she's got a Miao Miao on it now. Priceless joke!!!!!

    Good morning, 3.7 waking as I slept thru the alarms but no harm done, currently eating my porridge before finishing lining the bathroom as I've a piece of paper to 'let in' behind the bog around the foul pipe, which puts the painting off till tomorrow :banghead:

    Good old Yorkshire weather and the earlier sun's clouded over and the wind's picked up, hoping it doesn't rain as I've the lawns to mow later (a job I've neglected for 3 weeks) so it's all go :p

    Have a good weekend.

    Morning all, pretty warm here, a bit later dog walking as it's Saturday but got back a little while ago and glad to come in to cool down. @kev-w hope the weather holds off for you, 3 weeks' worth of growth is a lot at this time of year. It'd take me two days to cut all mine if I left it for that long (including tea breaks of course!)

    Hope you're all doing something (at least one thing, kev!) you enjoy this weekend.

    Snorkeling on the schedule for me today. Hopefully not too much rain, we’re already going to be wet but it can be choppier.

    I didn’t want to leave the water last Tuesday it was like a giant pool so calm, warm and clear. And some turtles! Having fun!

    OK? I get sent stems & write music with from bunch a guys sharing a cloudy Dropbox account.

    Another outfit I've been working with for the last 26 years. Had tried the other week to set up a video conference call for an online jam which failed with hilarity due to time lagg..
    So we settled for some brutal banter instead.

    So today.. With the use of wireless equipment & some cunning social distancing.
    We ripped up on a disused cow farm yard in the middle of nowhere for the afternoon..

    Nice day for it too!
