  1. Maintenance work doesn’t end well if you are a cruise ship who found herself in a squabble with a Venezuelan Navy patrol boat. https://edition.cnn.com/2020/04/03/americas/venezuela-navy-cruise-liner-incident-intl/index.html
  2. I defrosted my freezer back in the week and started refillng - somehow the pizza and dessert sections at Iceland have had a couple of visits!
  3. At present I cope ok, and when I am with support, I carry an invoice from her to show as I am in her Freelander and we do not live in the same house. And we both have numbers of social workers who can vouch for us. As I live a few minutes from the beach anyway, I can take a stroll down as part of my allotted exercise, it takes me five minutes to get there, then I have a sit down for a few minutes, and then walk back home, or to the shop if I need a couple of things. Because I don’t appear on the surface to have a disability - it is an invisible one, I just look like any other member of the public sunning themselves on the seafront. I don’t necessarily feel comfortable about wanting a piece of paper saying I have exceptional circumstances for being out, as for me personally I cope ok, but I think something like this would be very useful to people who find it harder coping than me.
  4. Should do this in the UK, I have autism and although I can pretty much care for myself, there are plenty who find all this overwhelmingly tough. I would be more than happy to have something like this, as it does feel stressful going about one’s everyday business the best one can under the circumstances, without having to check and see if there are any police about before you sit on a bench for a couple of minutes rest. Or waiting for someone to pick me up who works as a support service. Being questioned by coppers isn’t something that autistic people cope with too well. Should not have that worry.
  5. https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/18348294.now-jumbo-jets-taking-sanctuary-bournemouth-airport/ The main photo could have been taken from my window. It isn’t my photo, but it is roughly the same view I had of a Jumbo coming right in front of mine, and quite low. Luckily my shipspotting binoculars were to hand, wondered where it was going, the one I saw was heading west.
  6. I really, really hope she can operate his year. So hope so, last year she was unable to undertake her usual schedule, and this year I just really hope that this year’s season isn’t kiboshed. Hopefully, even if she has a shorter season up in Scotland, she will be able to visit the rest of the country. She would be most welcome down here!
  7. If the Cs were still about, I would have loved a rattle across on Caedmon...♥️😉
  8. Take care mate - hope all resolves quickly and soon.
  9. I think that those who are bending the rules need to be the recipients of any new enforcements if the Government bring them in. I went up to Lidl this morning and the local beggars are still out in force, there were a couple of kids doing some leaping around on walls outside the hotel opposite me. They really need clamping down on. I would feel it is very unfair that those of us are doing our darnest to keep to the rules would feel the brunt of even further measures just because some idiots flout stuff.
  10. ... Trouble is I only got that far... I went and pulled out the fridge freezer to clean behind it instead...🤣
  11. Tidied up part of the book collection..
  12. Will be doing the same. In my view once this is all over it will be like getting back on a bike again if you’ve fallen off. Providing what is possible I fully intend to go on both Barf and Libby and draw a line under this flipping year. Cannot wait for a vaccine!
  13. From Bournemouth Police Facebook page. As expected earlier one was arrested as I knew he would end being...🙄
  14. Very true. Yes it will be a tough nut with these guys, they cannot abide the police telling them what to do. This is going to be a difficult one for forces up and down the country, if they try and crack down too hard on the homeless then they are just going to look really bad. I saw these two giving two coppers abuse earlier on and just felt they were likely to be arrested.
  15. Just been to Boots to get some migraleve, was queuing outside and watching a couple of coppers remonstrating with a couple of homeless men. Men whom I know quite well, and they were arguing with these coppers and shouting it was their *expletive* life and they will do what they *expletive* like. On the verge of getting themselves arrested. Why do it? These guys are tramps and refuse to conform, and they come under the most difficult to help as they refuse everything offered. Boots security guard said that the police were dealing with a lot of belligerent homeless people/street drinkers yesterday who were refusing to move or go into accommodation. This morning I spotted quite a few rough sleepers in town, and they are supposed to be in accommodation at this moment. Reckon the police cells will be their quarantine sooner or later if they refuse to do as they are told. Shame, but if they refuse...
