Our daily Boris Break Tit-Bits

Good morning,  here.

This morning will see us well into our Boris Break, 3 glorious months, 12 weeks, 84 days, of self isolation confined to the house, no contact with the outside world, well not exactly thanks to this virtual technology we can speak to each other and share our tit bits in life.

What I have in mind with the start of this thread is to have an ongoing page for the duration of our Boris Break where we can come on here and 

tell of some good news, 

fume at the letter with bad news, 

a new flower in the garden, anything that brought a smile to your face, 

annoyed you, 

made you to lose your temper, 

the telephone call from a small child or a long lost friend.

Acknowledge an act of kindness you've received.

or the scam phone call telling you that your broadband is going down.

What you think about the hoarders, when you need some milk, bread and the essentials and can't get an online delivery slot.

Ask a question.

If you've something to share this is the place to bring it to.

I think - hope - that you can see where I'm going with this as an outlet to share a small bit of your day with the rest of us.

Not intended to be a discussion just a place where you come on to tell others that you're feeling good or you're feeling like sh** or cr## and want to get it off your chest. We may not like our Boris Break but we can make the time pass by posting our Tit Bits, on this page which I have headed up Our daily Boris Break Tit-Bitsso what about it, will you join  by posting your daily, hourly events that have crossed your day and sharing the good and the not so good with each other.

Could I kick this off, just spotted on eBay Andrex Classic Clean Toilet Roll, 4 rolls - White for £12.50 plus £2.90 postage. 

To make it easy I will refresh the page daily to bring it back to the top.

Looking forward to reading your stories, incidentally how many remember the weekly magazine printed on cheap paper until 1984 that was a mini encyclopedia of human interest stories.

How many of you will be enjoying your morning coffee the same as me at 11 am.

Instant Quiz Question

Which is the best biscuit to dunk in your morning coffee?

  • Got a lovely card through the door from someone offering to shop for anyone self isolating. You can also phone for a chat . 

    Thought that was lovely . They also have a list of local food places that have switched to home delivery services. Nice for a treat now and again .

  • Hi . I’m good thanks. Enjoying my hour daily exercise in this lovely weather although covering twice the distance crossing over the road and back to avoid people who are also out walking! Think I’ll try a less populated route today although not sure about the very steep hill at the end of it but worth it for the views. 

    Got an appointment with the consultant on 8/4 although I’m expecting this to be cancelled as I’ve not had a scan or anything. My last 2 appointments with him have been cancelled due to him being on holiday or off sick. I know I was a bit of a nuisance after my surgery what with the infected collection and the lung clots but the lengths he’s going to to avoid me ....really?!

    Just having a cup of tea but no biscuit (yet) although your question about best biscuits to dunk reminded me of the Peter Kay sketch - very funny.

    Anyway I’ll finish with a little post that my friend has put on Facebook that made me smile  - ‘Well the home schooling is not going well. 2 pupils have been suspended for fighting and the teacher has been fired for drinking on the job!’

    Take care and stay safe

  • Brilliant   . That made me giggle . Glad my boys are past that stage . But I am running a canteen . Big eaters , thin bodies ... not fair !! No way are they eating me out of house and hold this week .Grinning

  • rant

    Remember the supermarket chain with the slogan -

    "Every Little Helps?"

    This is part of the response I received from the Chief Executives office:-

    "We currently do not have a vulnerable customer list."

    "As we increase our capacity, we will also set aside more of these slots for our most vulnerable customers."

    I ask myself if they don't have a vulnerable customer list, how can they set aside delivery slots for their most vulnerable customers if they don't know who they are!!!!!!

    Rant over

    Now for the community coffee session and I've just lost my rich tea in my coffee 

    Anyone else sharing their Thursday stories happy or otherwise.

  • Oh dear . Apparently along the way I was no longer a member of the Bowel forum ! I am now and photo uploading has returned !

    So technically challenged.

  • My daughter said that she has found that her local corner shop is the best place to find that everything is not sold out; so yesterday when on my constitutional walk to the post box I called in at the corner shop; not only was I the only customer in there but I managed to get 6 loo rolls & 2 kitchen rolls. Was a bit worried in case someone would mug me for them on my way home!!!!
