I have said before people have it worse off in these times and I stand by that.

However completely out of the blue this afternoon (by which I mean I was told I wonít have to on Monday) I have been told I am to be Furloughed for 3 weeks in June.

I am told itís so the company can make sure the scheme is used before the Government deadline but I am still in shock. My industry (Aero) is taking a hammering and I am very concerned for the long term future.

Itís an industry I love and am proud to be a part of. To see the bottom fall out of it within such a small space of time is horrible  :(

Me being me I am also trying desperately not to let the situation impact my enjoyment of this fine hobby. I fear how long it will be before I canít look at my stock without thinking how long it would feed my family.

Things not that desperate yet but the trajectory is poor.

SWMBO has just had a phone call to say she is overdue for a review of her medications, 'would you like to make an appointment ?'

she pointed out that she had had a couple of calls from the NHS saying she should stay indoors for at least 12 weeks, maybe longer, and that I should also not be going out.

ahhhh

'we'll call you again in a couple of weeks'

 :veryangry:

talk about left hand and right hand

of course, doctors are not making house calls either, so what is she supposed to do  :'(

While we have an early summer I have this sat in my garage and I can't get out on it.
Unlike a couple of lads from Rochdale who decided to go on a 200 mile trip to Whitby for fish and chips I'm behaving myself. :angel: Still, they got caught by the fuzz (never pleasant ;)) fined, and turned back.

Police should have done similar to what they did to a couple from Kent who travelled to Cornwall. They fined them and seized their car whilst in Cornwall due to not having insurance  :goggleeyes:

Mrs EC spotted someone climbing over our locked road gate yesterday. By the time I'd got out she'd scrambled back over and the car drove off.  :veryangry:

The  :censored: bust aload of livestock netting off the gate doing whatever she was doing so I went back with zip ties to put it all back. Whilst doing this a bloke drove past in his 4x4 towing his twin axle touring caravan!!!!! That must be essential!!!

Interestingly the car directly behind was none other then 2 of Leicestershires boys in blue in an unmarked beemer.

I'd of loved a 5 mile trek to see if and where they pulled him but didnt deem being a nosey parker essential either!

To be fair, many contractors who have to work far from home for extended periods use caravans. Some park up on nearby caravan sites (I used to regularly stay at a B&B while working away. It had an attached site and two vans were there "permanently", owned by workers away from home) and others get permission to stay on their client's car park.

Went to hospital for day surgery (prostate biopsy).
Arrived at 10am, into surgery at 3:30 pm, left at 5pm.  Delay due to an emergency surgery procedure.
Wouldn't even let me have a drink of water. :(
Now I sit rather uncomfortably. :worried:

Was it the 'normal' biopsy or the one where they actually give you a general anaesthetic and go in from the outside, (it was called a 'template biopsy' when I had mine)? Either way, if it is any consolation, the discomfort soon wears off.  :thumbsup:. Hopefully you get a good result. My result is a daily tablet and a 'watching brief', with 6 monthly blood tests.  :beers:

At least you got your op. I'm waiting for two procedures, but don't expect anything to happen whilst this pandemic is in full swing.

Twilight anesthesia (can't remember a thing, but quickly awake when they stop injecting anaesthetic), ultrasound probe in bowel, needles inserted from bowel into prostate.
I would be ok with the tablet outcome, beats surgical removal/chemo.

That sounds like what I called the 'normal' biopsy. Nothing was found but a later scan showed a 'dark patch' in the prostate, so the specialist went for the 'template biopsy'. Even that was inconclusive, hence the 'watching brief'. That was about 3 years ago, so I am happy.  :thumbsup:
