Hallo :(
Here it seems IIIrd world war.....we are all “closed” in our home.....going out only for “food shopping” (only one can go) , pharmacies/medicals/care....with a “special permit” to exhibit when  stopped for police controls...all “non essential”  shops , factories and activities closed.
Schools and universities closed for an indeterminate tiime... 
Big famous cities  like Rome, Milan, Venice they seems ghost town....as you know typical italian traffic, trouble and “hi loud chatting”..
Military trucks hauling coffins to the cemeteries and crematories ‘cause funerals are forbidden..,all the public ceremonies are forbidden...
It’s not a good thing.

I see that thousands of folks have taken the sunshine of the weekend to signify a holiday, and have flooded scenic and tourist spots around the UK.

So much for social isolation.

Maybe this had something to do with it, from yesterday’s Daily Mail:

Please, please, please follow the advice - hopefully soon law - to avoid social interactions. Other than washing hands it is our best line of defence against this virus. Don’t become a killer just so you can say you had a nice time on the beach, or climbed a mountain like Snowdon with hundreds of others.

@daffy

Totally agree with you there.

Having said that my youngest son (35) came round with his wife and three children and two small dogs to see us today, well mainly his mother as its Mothers Day, we haven't seen or visited our grandchildren for over two weeks now.

It felt so strange and so hard to keep our distances from each other in the front garden, like my wife I wanted to give them all a hug but we all kept to our 2 meter spacing!  Its times like this makes it all sink in how serious this situation is.  :(

I just put a safe box round my mothers door with a key and as she is disabled a tray screwed on so post person can deliver and the mail drops not to the floor but into that tray. Then a quick call went a long way. I'm the only one out of 5 of us to have bothered taling time to call.

We are contacting our children and grandchildren purely by phone and FaceTime. It is hardest for the youngest, twins aged 3, who tell us to keep safe but can’t properly understand why we are not visiting them, and why they can’t come to stay with us.
Their Dad, working from home to help keep us all supplied with essentials, looks worn out already from the strain of his job and now having to entertain and educate his 3 children.
It’s is a painful emotional time for us all.

There is a new normal.

We are fortunate to live in an estate of 67 houses with a very strong community spirit. A few days ago one of our neighbours set up a WhatsApp group for the whole street to join if they wanted and it has been a resounding success, with people collecting prescriptions for elderly neighbours, getting shopping, swapping advice etc.

This evening one resident, a lay preacher, said that the Archbishop of Canterbury had suggested people should place a candle in their window this evening to show that 'hope conquers gloom'. A lot of people responded positively and even though we are not religious in any way, we did too.



Stay safe, everybody. Better times will come again.
