  1. I also got chickens 14 years ago! I’ve gone from a teenager (at school) to an adult (with a job) in that time!
  2. I had my Moderna booster last week. Very easy to book and there was no queue! For some reason though, I had to sign some paperwork that I consented to have the vaccine... If I didn't want it, I wouldn't have turned up!
  3. I’ve had both doses and I tested positive (both lateral flow and PCR test) on Tuesday.
  4. You are totally correct LH! Any issues you can phone GiffGaff for advice.
  5. Turns out you can request a refund! Money Saving Expert says: you'll have up to 12 months to claim a refund of any unused credit as cash. You'll need to contact Virgin Mobile's customer services to request a refund. All refunds will be made via bank transfer. Best give them a call!
  6. That is the case with all mobile providers in the UK. Virgin Media's Terms and Conditions state: No refund: If you don’t use all of the credit in any Top Up that you purchase, or such Top Up expires (if applicable) then we will not give you a refund for it. Annoying, but nothing you can do about it unfortunately.
  7. GiffGaff would be perfect for your needs. You can switch your number too!
  8. Got my second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine last week. Only side effect was a very mild headache that went away after 20 minutes!
  9. 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!
  10. 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...
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. How about a Vauxhall Combo Life? You can get a used (2020 model) for around £12,000
  16. How much are you looking to spend?
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. If is is fitted properly, then no, as when you speak or breathe, the droplets will go forward and be stopped by the plastic.
  22. It can't go any further, the plastic will get in the way
  23. 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.
