So the UK is officially in lockdown because too many people went out to celebrate mother's day together lol.

All fast food joints are closed so have fun cooking! No pasta, however, the stores are all sold out.

Today is a great day to be alive (maybe). Put the kettle on and butter a crumpet, fellas, we're in for a bloody rough time.

UPDATE 16/03/2020:
Lockdown extended for at least three more weeks

Our council has cancelled the green bin collection and it was supposed to be the first one of the year today!

I’ve mowed the lawns and cut back the hedges and shrubs over the last week and the green fucker is packed solid. I NEEDED that bin collected. I am beyond livid.

My flatmate refuses to self isolate and continues to go hang out with friends and it stresses me out and she knows this but rather than stop doing it, she just lies and says she just decided to stay out in the garden overnight.

Ah yes, we're likely to get fined for leaving the house unless we have 'a good reason'

Normally I don't make aesthetic criticisms in other peoples' homes, but that rug looks like a beaver exploded. If meat is murder, then that rug is at least a severe beating.

My children dont live with me and I work in a distribution centre for a supermarket. I'm not allowed to see my children for at least three weeks, I'm gutted! I'm trying to be sensible about it, it's for their own health and safety but it's still going to be tough to not even get to hug my kids.

I can take paid isolation from work if I want too but stiff upper lip and all that shite.

I have zero boredom - but i am so not leaving my house for at least the next two weeks. Too much work to do from home and too many art supplies, books and tv shows.
I also have more time to write and exercise and bike. No complaints. just dont wanna get sick or see anyone i love get sick.

come on the game goes on for like 10 seconds at a time.


Soccer has more continuous play.


and check out rugby sometime for that matter. American football players only run like a mile per game and only play an average of 11 minutes rugby players play for a full 80 minutes.
