Around here you would ask your self what lock down? from the stables to traffic going to Dawn house school and people exercising with their dogs been no change.

We took the horses to the forest this morning and they enjoyed a trek through them, finished up over on the beach for a final stretch n gallop.

Well done. I will guarantee that in do doing, you posed absolutely no threat [size=100%]to yourselves, the population at large, nor your horses, whom I am sure enjoyed stretching their legs[/size]

i had a bad night [sleep-wise] last night
i couldnt believe the traffic
during last years lock-down it was like a ghost-town...
but not this term so it seems

It's quieter here than it was just as Tier 4 but nowhere near as quiet as when Lockdown 1 first started. Lockdown 2 I saw no difference at all from what preceded it.

Very quiet yesterday plenty of traffic and like normal today, plenty of people out and about too.

Quiet here today.   I took the tram to town to take a couple of coats and scarves to a new clothes bank.  Its getting so bad for some people that not only do they need food, they need clothing.   You need access to online devices to claim Universal Credit and other benefits.  Pretty difficult if you're on the breadline already.  There are people who have probably been working to survive, lost their jobs and now have absolutely nothing.

Well done granny Before Veronica died, when we went to supermarket and the like, we would add tins of something.
Since my darling died, I send money to a variety of charities, over and above those we used to support

Absolutely fantastic.

What do you mean incomprehensible ?   You're just not listening properly
You climbed on the ladder with the wind in your sails,
You came like a comet blazing your trail

I had no problem. Maybe I remember the language from my old drinking mate of half a century ago topped up with the occasional curry and booze night in the company of another ex-pat maybe 30 years back.

Over 1000 death recorded in the last 24 hours in UK so the lockdown was needed. I thought yesterday with 800 was bad.
