Day 182 a busy one and new COVID-19 restrictions for UK & Scotland announced

The gym boy woke me at 4.30am…. just couldn’t get back to sleep so I was up hoovering at 7am. My new Shark 🦈 vacuum is still amazing. I can even hoover seat cushions! Dog hair begone….. 😆 actually it’s never gone but it was gone for the 5 mins before the dogs came downstairs…. 😳

I went to the cash and carry with Holly this morning….. turns out it’s the last time I’ll be doing that for a while (see covid announcement below!!). Then we had a wee quick shopping trip around Irvine. Was home by 12.30 then spent some time making calls for Pawsitive Solutions as I do most days now!

So there are big changes on the COVID-19 guidelines again. We set up the iPad to listen and Nicola Sturgeon started talking about how we were ready to progress to phase 2…. I’m listening intently thinking I thought today’s announcements were going to be bad news for us as the R number (rate of infections) is creeping up… she says it’s going down blah blah….. I was “reminded” of the olden days when people sat listening to the wireless for the address to the nation given by Winston Churchill…. not that I was there obviously. I was just aware this was history in the making again and yet she wasn’t saying what I was expecting to hear….

The “click here to listen live”…… was an old broadcast from the start of July. She said that we could start travelling further afield from 15th July and we both realised!!!!

So we find the right one and she hasn’t started yet….. I thought her announcement was pretty surreal so it made complete sense when I finally clicked it was the wrong one. 🤪

This is why further restrictions are necessary
Back to not being allowed in anyone’s house anymore. Claire says we are back to up the ladder cuppas again…. sad but needs must

Thankfully we think Craig can still work under the Tradesman rules as they are delivering a service. He takes all the necessary precautions anyway, he’s the one person I knew used loads of hand gel before this virus hit us!! Obviously customers can chose to cancel too if they need to.

I had a wee meeting with Lorna from Pawsitive Solutions (along with Craig obviously!) this afternoon to discuss a wee business proposition….. Exciting prospect I think, just need to put some thought into how it would work. Have lots to think about!

More calls and now I am done. 4.30am is a ridiculous time to wake up and yet I just lay in bed while Craig did a full workout at the gym…. I’m tired just thinking about it!

Lots of new rules to get our heads around again…. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 oh and ITS RAINING!!!! First time in a whole lotta days…… ☔️☔️☔️

Stay safe everyone ❤️❤️❤️
