I did hear that caravan sites are closing so that might get rid of some of them.

Even Kate and William and their kids and staff have descended on Norfolk now!


Words fail me , Royalty should show an example to us subjects

We are experiencing the same problem here on the IOW, Holiday camp sites are starting to fill up despite yesterdays announcements that these sites will be closed
The club Houses and Laundry facilities have been closed , what do these people think they can do during the daytime
Our Hospital only has 8 ICU beds these must be available for the Island Population not filled by people from the main land .

As a so called Military man you do not seem to understand the meaning of "Martial Law"

Which basically is what we have now

Every thing is being closed down except for Food, Medicines, Petrol and Key Workers the next stage is Military and Police on the Streets to enforce the law . .

Quite. We are a large county and we do have 3 hospitals but they all take in patients from a huge catchment area. The main one at Norwich is always full to bursting anyway and people usually go to appointments at least an hour early because parking is so poor.

You would think on the IOW they would not allow holidaymakers on the ferries and offer just a very limited service for local key workers.

The district council at Cromer closed car parks to deter people from visiting. Today they have had to fence off Cromer Pier because so many people are still going there. What is wrong with people?

I guess the fabulous weather has sent people doolally! Maybe if we get a few wet days things will calm down.

My son has just got back from a bike ride. Every single day whatever the weather he does about 10 miles. We are in a very rural area well away from towns or shops and usually he doesn’t even meet a car on the back lanes he uses. He says it's mental out there today. Walkers, cyclists, kids on scooters, someone on a quad bike, people in roof down sports cars, dog walkers and horseriders.

There is not a easy solution but TRY CJ.

Best wishes to you CJ and anyone else in a similar situation.


That's an idea. On nice days sit in the garden and she sits in the kitchen with the window open. Something like that.

On the subject of what worries me. When I was a kid I used to have a really bad phobia about this type of things, plagues, pandemics etc.

Ironically now I feel like the only one who isn't worried. I'm so not worried that it's worrying lol.

Although I do understand some have a reason for worrying.


Nope you aren't the only one. I feel the same way for some reason and I am at greater risk for getting the virus due to all my medical problems, being older and being a cancer survivor. But I'm not worried at all. I haven't even been taking my xanax. I can't believe I'm not freaking out or having anxiety or panic attacks.

It's weird isn't it. But don't get complacent and do take neccessary precautions given your circumstances. :smilin:

I follow the advice because I don't want to be a risk to others if I can help it.

It could be that some, being genuinly worried, see the beautiful weather and think make the most of it, I might not be here much longer.

Contradictory I know but human nature being what it is.

Yes I am being very careful, I haven't even been by to see my mother, but thankfully by siblings have stepped up and tend to her needs, which at the top of her list is visitation. She is 87 but in pretty good health. I spend a lot of time with her but with everyone else coming and going to see her, I don't think it's a good idea right now.

Hi Abs your connection/puter problems solved then?
Glad you're not panicking never does any good.
I'm at increased threat too but getting on the best I can and missing the world somewhat but .... staying in as much as possible washing my hands and generally relaxing.

Cumbria is high up , I keep thinking of when the last time I filled my car up in Ambleside for work, place was packed, no where to park etc, just crazy! I think almost 2 weeks now since I've been in, apart from essential shop and exercise :doomed:

Crazy last weekend up the Langdales, motor homes parked all over the place and the tiny local shops stripped so locals had nothing, locals abusing the tourists etc. Hopefully thats all over now, the cottage rentals have shut down, no work for us but heath is all.
