Oh dear John! Those pants are no good as a mask at all. :no:

Didnít you know that it has been scientifically proven  ;) that only underpants with a reinforced double-gusset give effective protection against all perils.?
:hmmm:

 :D

Ah yes, I've done a bit of research and found that you are absolutely correct.

Haven't been into a supermarket in 22 months. If we can't get it delivered, we do without.

Now you know why.

 :veryangry:

One of the issues with our Tesco is the aisles are full of staff picking stock for delivery to those stay at homers and with their damn great carts it's very difficult to keep a social distance, especially when they come and park next to you and reach across you or leave their cart parked across the aisle. I have to say some are as fragrant as some folks at model railway shows, too :sick2: Then they see a particular friend so stop for a natter thus blocking the aisle completely and then wonder why they get rammed by an irate NPN and his trolley. I say unto you "Get thee hence and do thine own shopping providing thou hast deodorant used." It would ease the problem for those of us who have to deal with homo denso :P ;)

Sorry Mick, no can do. With the wife's Epilepsy prescription lowering her immune system, and her chronic respiratory condition, and the advice from her GP and Consultant to "Not get it, even with three jabs", I'm afraid we carry on.

The only consolation I can give you is that it's unlikely to be our shopping that's causing you grief.

Hopefully your wife will have received the letter my wife had this week from the NHS, as she too has a Consultant who gave her the self same care instruction due to her condition. The letter points out that she is now eligible to receive an Ďat homeí PCR test kit that, should she ever develop covid symptoms (or I assume get a positive LFT result), she can use herself and pass the result online to the NHS who will be back to her within 24 hours with a treatment plan. I think this will be for the soonest administration, at home, of the latest drugs to combat any Covid infection.

The test kit should arrive here today, and hopefully she will never have reason to use it.

Best wishes to you both. :thumbsup:

Iíve just had a text to book my 4th jab, so have done so for the first week of January.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Hereís a wish that none of us are Ďtoastí before the freebie gets awarded.  :o Will there be a choice of freebie cos I donít eat bread? :hmmm:

I suspect a few jabs (or maybe pills) a year could become the norm to keep this and other Sars variants at bay for our lifetimes.

Don't worry, we'd already kinda figured you were special needs.

Been invited to a meal at youngest sister's on 2nd Jan so, having been exhorted by all to get tested, I tried today to get a pack of Lateral Flow Tests.
Hah! Rocking horse poo would be easier to find at pharmacies ::)
Have ordered some for delivery but the post is all over the place at present.
