    Last night I decided to sing national anthems while washing my hands. But I don't know that many.
    So today I'm reciting the classic childhood seconds-counting chant:
    1 Missouri...2 Missouri...3 Missouri ........
    20 Missouri.

    I have just discovered that I can play Moonlight Sonata on my guitar. Just the first part tonight; I don't really have more of it in my head right now.
    I have also discovered that if you type Sonata on your phone and don't check the spell-check, the phone will change it to Moonlight Donate.

    I just havent eaten breakfast in a morning cos I can't stomach anything at the mo. But my rest of the day eating window was four hours.

    Anyway love you and leave you , will catch up with this thread later going to the Pensioners opening times at Iceland between 9 and 11 am. But it is not every Iceland from what I can gather. You will have to check online.

    We will see if they have restocked the meat cans, or are we just having the dregs of what is left.

    Take care. Seize the day. There was a song, which I saw the video of, though never the words years ago, Today is a Good day to Die, or some such title. It basically means live life to the fullest, or at least that is what I gathered from the video itself. I am sure @jjraak will find it for me by the time I get back.

    6.3 this morning, I think I need a crumpet with marmite:)

    Bit sniffly but it is the start of allergy season for me so it will be a toss-up whether the raspy throat and shortness of breath are down to allergies or the lurgy. I have decided to pull back on the news apart from the WHO and .gov as all I need to know aside from what's on there is how to keep myself alive.

    Bin men have been so some things are still sacred, god bless her Madge :angelic:

    On a lighter note... Aspies are setting up support groups for neurotypicals to help them deal with being isolated. As it's our normal state of being we are uniquely qualified in helping our more social monkeys adapt to the new world order. We don't meet up, even online, but we can send an occasional text. ;)

    Good Morning and 5.5 today.

    Wet here so indoors by the looks of it.

    @SaskiaKC well done with Beethoven on Fritz. Mrs MC often plays that sonata on our piano such a calming piece of music.

    Be hopeful and attentive today take care.

    Morning All. 5.7 today so thats ok. Hope you are all well as can be, bearing up.
    Am I correct in saying that atm we (over 70s anf those who are eligible for the flu jab) should be socially distancing rather than socially isolating which may COME DOWN THE LINE SOON. Answers on a postcard please. @jjraak it was only a matter of time I guess but I just couldnt do it, the link was something else.
    My situation here is my lovely friend with us until Sunday 29 then we need to get her to the hospital in Hastings for check up (if it goes ahead as the NHS hospital has of this week commandeered the Spire next door for overflow) get her some essential shopping and meds etc. Might be a bit of creative thinking required!
    After that Mr PM and I can self isolate and No 2 son will drop weekly food parcels. I was just thinking @ianpspurs your move was very timely being near your boys.
    @gennepher hope your trip to Iceland has been successful.
    Have a good day everyone, Inknow you lot will be kind and dont take any chances.
    Stay well, stay safe.

    good morning all :)

    4.6 today

    my sister's holiday was cancelled for the second time last night (should have been flying out this morning), so she and her hubby are in B+Q getting a new shower fitting for their bathroom, they've decided that at least they will be productive ;)

    I'm making a list of 'stuff that would benefit from attention' :hilarious:

    Thank you all for your hugs, our thread community is :)

    Hope your day treats you well :)
