Hi Will. Hope you and hubs are well in these strange times. We're really fed up with it now. I expect you are too. We've just about got to the end of our store of toilet rolls, but the way things are shaping up I think we'll start hoarding again. :lol: Is hubby still working from home? Our son has to go into work occasionally, but he's mostly at home. He's enjoying not having to commute.

I expect you've seen your family now. It was lovely to see ours, and be able to give them a hug. We couldn't see our grandson on his birthday, but we skyped and sang happy birthday. He thought it was hilarious. :lol: Have you been on holiday?

Have you done much gardening? We've planted some more stuff. We've planted some climbers along the back fence. It's so different from our last garden. We go out to do some weeding, but we've finished before we've started.

How's Mr. Puss? We hadn't seen a cat in the garden, but one day when we were out for a drive we saw a lovely black and white cat trotting along. I said to hubby it would be good if we had a visiting cat, and when we got home there was a black and white cat in the garden. He's been back a couple of times, but we haven't stroked him yet. We've called him Felix. We often think about Pirate. We saw a grey squirrel in the garden the other day, but we haven't seen any hedgehogs. Then tend to leave a mess. We don't see many birds. Have you seen any fox cubs?

We go out grocery shopping, but we buy most other things online. It's horrible having to wear a mask. Even going to the hairdressers is hard work. I suppose it's better than not being able to go to the hairdressers. I kept cutting bits off my hair, but it didn't look to bad considering. :lol:

I hope you and your family stay safe. :D
Keep calm and carry on.

Hi apples, good to hear from you. I'm glad you are all doing well. :)
It must have been awful for you not being able to see and hug your grandchildren, it is a saving grace that people have things like Skype, but it isn't the same.

We are very well, including Mr Puss and finding these strange times we are in, well, moronic! :lol:
Let's face it, BOBO is an idiot and the ConQuakular party need to be sectioned. That being said, what on earth can we do other than some how put up with this scamdemic and all the lies being concocted by goodness knows WHO? :twisted:

We have been on a couple of short breaks, seen family, but we are uncertain about the Christmas hol. I knew back in May that they would use seasonal flu and the cold virus as an excuse to lock us all down by November time. You could put money on it. So we do hope we can go away, but are very doubtful at the same time. These 90% inaccurate scam tests, test for coronavirus, not Covid19. It is such a scam. You could talk about it all day couldn't you! But it won't change anything. Imbeciles are already stripping shelves in supermarkets. One thing worse than this awful government, is the sheeple brainwashed by them and the bias bull sh1t media. Grrr I swear you could make millions of sheeple walk off a cliff these days, what the hell are people on? :roll: :lol:

We have been doing a bit of gardening, we have just been getting all the last jobs done before winter.
We still have lots of foxes visiting, the cubs came late this year, they were quite big when we first saw them in the garden. We think there are two or three. We have had loads of hedgehogs, a rat is coming to the garden at the moment. :lol: I doubt it will last long as the foxes love a good rat butty. We have had mice visiting a lot, including a few babies running around. It's all on Fox Watch on YouTube, including a fox catching and eating a mouse.
We still have Nuthatch, they nested behind and have stuck around, we are so pleased about that. :D

I bet your garden is looking very lovely now, it looked great on the photos before. I think you'll soon have a cat visiting for some snacks if you are putting them out. :lol: Rudey sends a belly flop and kiss. He wouldn't leave you alone if you were our neighbour and feeding him. He's a little piggy.

Shopping is awful, the mask and one way system, queuing around at 2m apart. All pretty pointless. The staff in supermarkets we shop at have not been wearing masks, weren't wearing them in the height of the scamemic. Not one of them have been ill or died. Again, you could go on and on... :lol:
We shop online mostly, I hate shopping anyway, so it hasn't changed our shopping habits. I think it has been known that the high street and shopping centres have been slowly dying, this will tip it over the edge and be the final nail in its coffin. I think the plan is to make everyone do everything online, including socialising with family and friends. It is a very unhealthy world.

I never go to the hairdressers, I cut and dye my own hair. I can't stand the boring chat to be honest. :lol: I'd wear a wig before I would bother with the hairdressers. But then I'm a scruff. I would wear a tool belt before a handbag. :mrgreen:

So with not many plans, other than lockdown, my plan is to think about Christmas mostly. I can't wait!!!! :mrgreen: I know you feel the same, especially Mr apples. We might have to start early, because the next news will be that coronavirus is attracted to Christmas trees and hunts down houses with Christmas cheer. The fact that it can get you after 10pm, we might all need to start taping around windows and doors, as it can get into pubs and venues, I can't imagine how houses are any different? :wink:

Did you know cats and dogs have coronavirus? Perhaps we will be banned from having pets? I kiss Rudey all over his beautiful little face every day, I expect I must have it permanently and be a super spreader! I think with this virus being so intelligent that it is on a clock, maybe it can get down the wires and start infecting people through their devices too. Then what? How will we watch BOBO and the magic circus? Carrier pigeons will be hyper dangerous.

Stay safe apples, it is so dangerous out there with the common cold and corona cats around. Protect our non existent NHS. Keep up with the hourly coronavirus announcements as we know our lives have to be changed every five minutes and we can't miss out on the next face accessory we must wear...goggles and tin hat I am guessing. Most of all we must all stay stupid and cucked at all times. :lol: :wink:

Hi Will. Hope you and hubby are well. It's like living in a madhouse. I wake up every morning and think 'what's going to happen today'. More silly rules that change every five minutes. As you say it's awful not being able to hug our grandchildren when we feel like it. We've seen our family occasionally, social distancing of course. :lol: We should be able to spend some time with them at Christmas, unless Doris changes his mind again.

Shopping is a pain. I hate wearing a mask. We've done our Christmas shopping online. We haven't had to queue for a while, and the little Hitlers who call themselves greeters seem to have calmed down a bit. One told us we shouldn't be out together. At least when we go for a walk now nobody is jumping into the bushes so they don't have to walk too close. It would be funny if it wasn't so pointless and silly.

I'm pleased you've managed to have a couple of short breaks. We've been busy in the garden, just planting a few more shrubs and keeping it tidy.
You'll be pleased to see the foxes. We had a huge hedgehog on the back lawn, but we don't see much wild life or birds. Give Mr. Puss a stroke from me. We've seen Felix a few times walking down the street, but he doesn't come into the garden very often. I think there are too many dogs about. We've never seen so many.

I laughed about you wearing a tool belt before a handbag. Are they colour coordinated? I love my handbags. :D

Hubby said the other day you'd have your Christmas decorations up. We've seen a lot. I think everyone is trying to brighten things up a bit.
We'll put ours up on Boxing Day, It's soon enough.

Stay safe both of you and have a happy Christmas.
Keep calm and carry on.

Hi apples, been a while! :) I hope you are well. We are all fine here, lovely little Rodders sends a belly flop. We had a lovely Christmas, despite cancelling plans twice. We always enjoy doing our own thing most of all, so staying home didn't bother us.
Sad that we didn't get to go to Center Parcs, but it was predictable that we would have to cancel. Did you manage to have any kind of Christmas?

The World has gone mad! I can't believe how weird people have become, I don't trust our government one bit! They lie for fun, yet everyone hangs on their every word it seems. The government make mistakes, but blame society for everything, never themselves. I swear we are heading for concentration camps, it is beyond bizarre. I have no idea whether we have had Covid or not? Have you, or anyone you know? We haven't had so much as a cold, but then some don't have symptoms. But then they test with a pregnancy test or something to add two and two to come up with seven don't they?!?! :lol: Tests designed to give false positives I expect.
Terrible that so many people are dying of course, but I don't believe these ludicrous restrictions are doing much. For a start the dumb masks everyone are wearing are ineffective. I expect the pickers, packers, those behind the scenes are sneezing and coughing all over food and other goods we buy. Then someone eats an apple covered in Covid and blames a shopper who got too close with a mask hanging off their nose. Oh dear, we are reaching Idiocracy.

We just get on with our lives without paranoia of dying, you have to live, people are being hysterical about it. We abide by the stupid rules but don't like them. I think it is all about vaccines now, pump it in the elderly, then at some point they might say it can help stop the spread and they'll want to pump it into everyone. That will cause trouble, because loads or people don't want it. They think nano technology is in it, of monkey spunk.. :lol: I just think it is all about compliance. Get rid of the elderly, save money on pensions and healthcare, restrict movement of people, track em and trace em. I would not be surprised if governments want to chip us though, would you? I mean they want complete control, you do have to wonder when the chip is coming? Our Rodders has more freedom than us and he doesn't even want it. :lol:

I feel most sorry for elderly people, youngsters and families not seeing loved ones, it is cruel. The brainwashing from MSM is repugnant, I wish more people could see through the BS, but they can't. If they gave statistics on other main causes of death all year round, every day, people would be even more paranoid. But of course they'll never do that.

So what's the plan for this year? Asda or Aldi shopping, a walk a day, and having lots of fun at home at the moment for us. We have hols booked, but who knows if we'll be able to go?

Hubby works from home, so something really fab has come out of Covid. We are starting to think about moving. There are jobs in Scotland near Edinburgh, so we are looking at houses within 30 miles of Edinbourgh, just to see if there are the types of properties and locations we might like. But it is early days, just considering it at the moment as hubby thinks he might be able to work from home most of the time. But he needs to see what the company say in the near future when we come out of lockdowns, if we ever come out? :shock:

Ahh the tool belt, any shade of black will do. :wink:

Have you any more cats around you yet? We have some lovely birds visiting, the woodpecker is back again after not seeing her for over a month. We also have blackcaps, they are cute. Always a fluffy in our garden. Three foxes visiting currently, we are hoping for cubs this spring of course. We have seen a lot of rats this year, I expect many people have since lockdowns. We don't want them really. The tree rats are bad enough eating the bird food.

I do hope you are managing to keep your chin up and sense of humour, it is a pickle we are in, but I'm sure they'll be better times ahead.
