  1. Got my second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine last week. Only side effect was a very mild headache that went away after 20 minutes!
  2. I just had my first dose of the Astrazeneca vaccine this afternoon. Slightly sore arm and a mild headache, took a couple of paracetamol and i'm fine!
  3. My mum received a positive COVID test result today. Only mild symptoms though, slight headache and a mild cough. As a result, the whole household (including me) has to self isolate for 10 days...
  4. Back in March, I mentioned how my work promotion exam had been cancelled at short notice. They finally rescheduled it for the end of November and I have recently found out the results... I passed! It also means I have been promoted too!
  5. Make sure these stones are very heavy. I used to have my eglu on slabs with bricks on the skirt. An animal managed to move the bricks, lift up the skirt and kill my chickens
  6. It would have to be a very inventive fox to be able to lift the pin out all the way and then open the door and get into the run. This has never happened to me, nor have I heard of it happening to anyone else.
  7. Volkswagen Touran. My dad has one and it is massive! All the rear seats can either fold down or be removed completely leaving a flat load bay. It can easily seat eight adults and it is a very smooth ride. Drives more like a petrol!
  8. How about a Vauxhall Combo Life? You can get a used (2020 model) for around £12,000
  9. How much are you looking to spend?
  10. I wouldn’t worry too much about which way the doors open, there should be plenty of space either way. If you want a fridge with an ice/water dispenser, I would get one that is permanently plumbed into the mains. You will get bored of filling up the tank otherwise!
  11. Schedule 1 of The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings in a Relevant Place) (England) Regulations 2020 states that a mask must be worn in: 1. A shop 2. Enclosed shopping centres, excluding any area in that building which is open to the public and where seating or tables are made available for the consumption of food and drink. 3. Banks, building societies, credit unions, short-term loan providers, savings clubs and undertakings which by way of business operate a currency exchange office, transmit money (or any representation of money) by any means or cash cheques which are made payable to customers. 4. Post Offices. If he was in the kiosk at a petrol station, a mask needs to be worn, as it is a shop.
  12. The World Health Organisation recommends 3 layers and the Government recommends at least 2 layers. However, there is nothing in law that states that face coverings must have a certain amount of layers. As long as the covering covers your mouth and nose, you are complying with the regulations.
  13. True, but the face covering can be anything, even a scarf will be fine! I think the law was meant to stop other people from spreading the virus, rather than stopping people from catching it.
  14. If is is fitted properly, then no, as when you speak or breathe, the droplets will go forward and be stopped by the plastic.
  15. It can't go any further, the plastic will get in the way
  16. The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings in a Relevant Place) (England) Regulations 2020 states: “face covering” means a covering of any type which covers a person’s nose and mouth A plastic face visor does this, so it can be worn instead of a mask.
  17. I was out shopping the other day and I noticed staff chasing a shoplifter down the street. The thief glanced backwards to see far the staff were behind him. Since the thief wasn’t looking where he was going, he ran straight into someone. Unfortunately for the thief, the person they ran into was a on duty (in full uniform) police officer! 😂 The thief was promptly detained and handcuffed in record time!
  18. My mum had to fly out to Australia a few days ago to deal with a family emergency. Everyone who arrives in Australia from overseas must spend two weeks in a quarantine facility (which is being run by the army). We were all expecting some dingy hostel or student dorms... Nope! She has been put up in a 5 star hotel in the centre of Sydney! The only downside is that every person there is limited to one bottle of wine a day!
  19. Not true. That photo was used for a plastic surgery clinic where the children were photoshopped to make them look ugly. Source
  20. I use RIng cameras myself, very easy to set up, the batteries last for a good few weeks and it seamlessly links up to my iPhone too.
  21. I make mine very much the same. But I toss the chips with oil, herbs etc before putting them into a shallow baking tray. spread out evenly.
  22. I just noticed this on the Google home page: Also, the police can now issue fines of £60 (reduced to £30 if paid within 28 days) for breaking the lockdown rules. £120 fine for a second offence, then Magistrates court if the lockdown is broken for a 3rd time.
  23. It is strangely eerie where I work, normally the streets and shops are bustling with people. But the streets are now empty. There were a few groups hanging around, but the police quickly dispersed them.
  24. I was supposed to have an important work promotion exam tomorrow. Just found out (with only 12 hours notice) that it has been cancelled. 😡
