    It’s not that far actually. I walk into town from my apartment and I’m in the Downtown building.

    Message me when you’re in GAY SAINSBURY’S and I’ll meet you in the HOMEWARE section.

    Went to a drive through test today. Someone in work tested positive and half the office has had colds this week. I’ve felt a bit rough myself.

    the test centres are definitely like something out of a zombie movie. DON’T OPEN YOUR WINDOW PARK OVER THERE BEEP YOUR HORN IF YOU SLIP INTO A COMA etc etc

    I’m from the burbs, babe. If there’s not a Waitrose waiting for me at the bottom of the street I’ve definitely taken the wrong left after the yoga centre

    The one I took my sister to was in the sticks and was a lovely experience. Friendly smile, nice but safe chat and fully explained. Hazard lights to show that you were ready to hand it in.

    Then I went to the city one the other weekend and got the apocalypse treatment.

    Phone this number!
    Only signal if concerned!
    Do not hand it to us!
    Keep driving!
    Did you seal your bag? DID YOU SEAL YOUR BAG?

    Then, the first one did get shut so...

    Did anyone seriously think they weren't? :D

    Sounds from the ZOE report (which is always the most pessimistic) like the spread may be decelerating, in which case maybe the 'nudge' did help.

    Manchester Met has had to backtrack on detaining their first year students because apparently it's a 'violation of their human rights' and 'a breach of the Geneva Convention' so probably BEST TO AVOID.

    A few days figures in the context of one of the comments there, but I know, but clinging to any GLIMMER of hope

    This is interesting.

    (Still wouldn't read much into it, but further grasping for hope)

    The optimist in me says that MAYBE this is a little bump reflecting the usual plague month when the kids go back to school and that we'll get another breather before it goes batshit around December when winter properly kicks in.

    Isn't that usually the case after the weekend?

    No, at least not to this degree... deaths are usually low after the weekend due to how they're reported but cases tend to be about normal, maybe a little lower. Tuesdays have a low case rate due to how home test kits are processed however.

    No idea why it's such a massive drop this time - but the pattern the past few days is looking quite encouraging.

    Funny how when I expressed such optimism last week I got absolutely battered.

    It's easier to get a positive response to optimism when numbers are going down than when they're shooting up :D

    All any of us can do is guess and speculate. The government's soft touch actually being seen as a good response by Dr Campbell gives me some hope, but as he says, it's still going to be a tough winter.

    The most I could muster was a flamingo facemask.

    I picked the time of day deliberately though so it would be reasonably quiet and was quick as a whippet.

    Picked up a tub of NUTRITIONAL YEAST before I dashed to the freezer section and then out!

    I have just had to book a test after having a cough all morning. Thankfully it is only a ten minute walk away to where I need to go.

    i don't think I'll be able to cope with the nose thing
