At Home For At Least 12 Weeks.

This reminds me:

We used to be season ticket holders at Leicester Tigers and stood in a regular spot next to an old guy who had a sailing boat on the Hamble. When I bought my Seal 22 he told me to get some Patio Magic to clean the algae and green mould from the boat. I've never heard mention of it on this forum until now, but I now know from experience, it works!

Anyone else used it?

I have used it, with great effect, but should never be used while afloat. It is an extremely strong biocide and hence a strong Marine Pollutant.

PATIO MAGIC,

The product is very toxic to aquatic organisms.

Have you or are you going to take up a hobby...

I have always wanted to learn how to play the drums. I reckon I could master it in 12 weeks if I put a decent few hours in a day. And, with the neighbours home as well they will be able tell me how much I am improving by banging on the wall, hopefully within tempo :default_biggrin:

I planted my potatoes on the allotment during my lunch break today, so that’s a good job done.

Graham found that he’s down to the last pot of the marmalade that I made in January. He doesn’t half go through the stuff...bit like Paddington Bear.  Luckily I’ve got one of those tins of orange pulp for cheats homemade marmalade making in the cupboard and enough sugar. So that’s a job for the next rainy day.

I must say, the weather is glorious, ttypical really I suppose, but at least I am getting out into the garden, mind you I could do with a new pair of secateurs a new broom and some nettle proof gloves (they made it through gardening gloves with latex ones underneath)

So have you had a series of texts?.I got texts on Monday then a letter yesterday. 

Two texts on Monday, Three yesterday and one today (So far).  Checking back, the letters are supposed to arrive by the 29th. If not I'm supposed to contact them. I hope that works better than Tesco's "Contact Us".

I've just tried to volunteer for the NHS service as someone would help out on the phone. Something I can do even though I'm at home.Went through the whole process, but because  I'm not very tech clever  the bit about  documents put a stop to that.Shame really think I would  have liked to of helped .

Lucky for me I can still go out to work, as I cant work from home and I have the home owners consent that they want to keep to the 2 metre rule.

 I hope that that keeps the authorities happy?

Hmmm?  Wonder if I could get away with that one,  I have a floor to tile round the corner - I'll ask them - Maybe

2m  boundary if you are on your own in an empty room is still ok.

The problem is on big sites with workers arriving on public transport and not distancing on site.

I could have carried on with most of the planbed work under the current guidelines but it wasn't worth the risk of it changing overnight.

We will have a cushion of work if we ever get back.

I could have slotted a big job in for a school, booked for Easter. Of course although the schools are shut, they are still open.

I'm sure Griff you could easily carry out your work without getting too close to your employer as like me, we work alone and can regulate our personal contact with others.

If it's a floor in one room, assume you've are travelling alone in your own van, keep the household in the other room at all times, maybe possible by mutual consent?

Yes it is, its the kitchen floor with direct access from outside - side door - I also travel alone in Trevor, if it wasn't for the materials I could just walk round the corner!  The owners could easily stay out of the kitchen too.  I'll put it to them next week maybe

Another job I've been asked to carry out, is cleaning moss etc off a bungalow roof, its a big bungalow and will take at least a couple of days.  The bungalow is stand alone - No neighbours (Farm house).  I'd be most surprised if I met anyone up there!

If anyone is still working you need to avoid touching surfaces that the owner might then touch later or have sanitizing wipes to wipe down on leaving or ask them to lightly bleach later.  My husband reminded me to wash all loose fruit and vegetables before eating if not being cooked.  Its little things like that you forget.  Don't let them make you a cup of tea ............. Probably my last day at work .................The 80% thing means still work all the time or nothing not just the occasional day to keep the place running on a skeleton staff

In my job,we always wash fruit and veg and have done so for years not just now. It is very important not to wash meat however. Chicken in particular is a no no.To do so will spread germs.

Hi Old Spice, we left Broadsedge on Monday (23rd March) and apart from David understandably not letting anyone inside the office things were still running as normal. We are back in Cumbria so I am not sure how things are today though after the new restrictions came in.

 

John.

I'm so pleased, I've just been accepted as a NHS volunteer. I'm unable to  go out but can be on the end of the phone to listen and help others.Very much looking forward to do what I can.
