Interesting Tony; also an ad on there caught my eye for https://www.zantebabyrentals.com/

Personally I wouldn't want to rent a baby on holiday but there must be a market for it ;D

Can't say I blame them for denying UK entry. Think we would do the same if seeing the high daily death toll in another country. Plus, I'm ashamed to say, it is sickening the number of people breaking the lockdown and social distancing rules. They obviously haven't any family/ friends working on the frontline nor any loved ones suffering from this cruel disease.

That's terrible apparently this type of crime on the up now unfortunately  :'( my partner was a victim of fraud years ago found out from his credit report must have got 20k of debt in his name just be careful

I had my identity stolen quite a few years back and happened to be stopped right outside my house with a blowing exhaust. I don't know who'd stolen it (other than that he lived in Norfolk) but the policeman took my licence back to his car and was on his radio for a bit then came back to me to ask why I was driving while disqualified; while I was explaining that I wasn't two additional units arrived with lights flashing. Was then told I was being taken in for questioning and I could go to Exeter (15 miles away) if I wanted legal representation or the local station if I didn't. I said as I'd done nothing wrong the local one was fine so they loaded me in the back of a van. Spent a very short time in a cell, matter of minutes, before being presented to the sergeant on duty; he asked to see my tattoos and I said I don't have any so he asked me to take off my shirt which I did and they finally accepted that I wasn't public enemy number one and apologised profusely, told me they'd correct the anomaly in their records and gave me a lift home. We lived at the end of a cul-de-sac and I'm damn sure some of the neighbours must have seen but I never told them what happened ;D.
Not been stopped since so I hope they were true to their word and put my "record" straight, I'll find out if I ever get stopped again I guess.

I for one will not be in quarantine when I return from holiday ,there is no way they can police this and since I'm retired it would be really hard to tell if I ever left the house unless someone was watching me 24/7 .I will be driving from Newcastle airport to Edinburgh on my return so hopefully the Scottish government will have a different policy in place by that time,keep safe everyone and hopefully see you in Zante

Think the £1000 fine would put me off breaching quarantine Rab plus I wouldn't want to spent the returning fortnight feeling anxious should anything happen. As you say Scotland may alter their policy. We in Wales are awaiting their next plan on Friday. My husband was getting optimistic about the £50 voucher scheme to get his bike back on the road, then found out this was applicable to England only. I wish decisions were for all of UK or wish the Govt would make it more clear what was relevant for England, Scotland, Wales and northern Ireland.

Should I wish you happy retirement Al ??? Or as this appears to not be what you wanted, maybe not. There is life after retirement but it's always a bit sad to leave your work friends. Think of it as a great opportunity to do things you weren't able to when in work. Anyway, all our best wishes to you.

Are Greece letting the uk in now?
Think UK are not allowed into Greece just yet as our Covid 19 deaths are so high compared with other EU countries Mari, but things can change on a daily basis so you never know.

I don't want to go so hope it gets cancelled I don't feel it's safe enough yet and it wouldn't be the same

The wife is a National Health manager and uses Morrison’s quite often. She has taken advantage of the “NH” discount scheme and dedicated shopping hours. Their social separation systems in place are comparable to other supermarkets. What has really annoyed her is bloody Tesco’s that are still enforcing rationing with some goods despite the ludicrously ridiculous panic buying by the British public being over when this virus threat emerged a few months ago. On Saturday the wife popped in the very local to us branch of Tesco’s to pick up a few essentials and she had to leave a few tins of tomatoes at the checkout there. She was rationed to just 3 tins despite the shelves of various brands being brimming full she said. We use many tins of tomatoes weekly in our household with the making of curries, spaghetti sauces, chilli’s etc and this rationing is just nuts, grhhhhh !!!!!

I must admit the tin shelves are still quite sparse at asda but I don't think they are rationing there anymore. It's annoying most things are available now. The morrisons hour here is 6-7 well we don't finish work until 7.40 am so not sure how that works I guess it's OK for the admin/domestic workers though. after a 14 hour shift I cannot be bothered to get up so early for these hours.
