We’re booked with BA later in the year. They’ve already published that they won’t be using Gatwick in future, which is a must for us. Expecting a struggle to get cash back, but used a credit card, so worse case scenario, the bank can sort it out. Getting the deposit back from the cattery could be a problem possibly. Have to wait for the govt. announcement regarding travel for bookings later in the year. Be happy just to have a day out on the bike at the moment. :lol

When we do get over, or are able to safely handle this pandemic, there'll be a change in the high street, with companies no longer trading, as well as changes to the way we're used to doing things. If airlines were forced to maintain social distancing, then seat prices will need to be around 3 times dearer. In yesterdays paper, there was an article regarding the govt laying on a repatriation flight, might have been from Turkey. Instead of being grateful for being flown home, they moaned about having to sit next to someone. Nowt as strange as folk :lol .

"I remember me and my brother and sister sharing a big old double bed"


T.M.I.   :lol :lol :lol :lol :lol






What's T.M.I. ?



Too much information








A definate sign of the age we live in,all completely innocent then,we were 9,11 and 12 there were no such thing as duvets then and we would cuddle on cold nights with just a sheet and couple of blankets till we fell asleep,I'm not coming the poor old me bit,we knew no diff then,it was the same for most kids in the early 60's,you didn't think you were hard done by at all.
never look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

Without a doubt. Frozen pipes in winter, frost on the inside of your bedroom window, home made draught excluders to block the gap at the bottom of doors, smog in cities. Todays snowflakes wouldn't last five minutes.

I was on a cabling gang for British Relay Wireless, no doubt the first cable tv company in the UK, wiring up Crawley when it had just been built in 1964. Our van was a column change Thames 15cwt, the forerunner of the Transit. Loads of wheelspin on every corner, happy days :thumbup .
