Back to viru'ssss, great fun here in the UK fear levels grow in comparison with lurid media hourly press coverage.
The girls, Sim & Arnada have to go into decontamination every time they return home.
Arnanda returned home at 10am this morning 'slut, she was 'ligging at a Brighton boy band called The Big Push.
15624
nb: Arni, prepping b4 ligging.
Sim reckons we should start hoarding cat food, I said "in a few weeks we will be eating the bloody thing"
Baked marinated 'brutus mmm...

So, I'll be in-touch online, with my 'self-isolation with 2 lunatic transylvanians...
Until.... they cut off social media and 'dumb phones... 8)

Ps: How's Papa Pope Francis these days, any black smoke visible...?

Saturday being Saturday and no more Saturday morning pictures, did my usual woke late, watched
on telly how our plague is progressing, shaved, dressed up warm plus surgical glove on right hand and off shopping.

Bought a Pork rolled loin and some posh cheese £35 quid, didn't blink an eyelid, the tears came later.
Into my mates gastropub opposite, half an Eagle to drink whilst awaiting probably the best bloody mary in Clerkenwell.
Within 30minutes the place is full of large family sort of gatherings, spending fortunes on food all cooked to the right of the bar, most things flame alot. great fun, whilst myself observing and reading The Times on my private sofa.
Inside the Times is a posh stupid magazine called LUX X, spotted an advert for a polar cruise from only....£7,055pp.
Now that sounds like lot of fun, where are all these cruise ships now ?

'Bignose is still suffering off and on flu cv19 symptones methinks, '
I'm becoming a bit of an expert, it's the telly!
but during his relapse the other day managed a photoshoot and attended the Royal Opera House..
bumping into our old pal Edward Fox, who still lives in our Little Venice..

The reason for this diatribe is,
observing all the people gathering in The Eagle hugging and kissing without a care in the World.

This is a good time to be alive 'their may be troubles ahead:

After washing my hands whilst singing Kumbaya twice..
am now indulging in the french cheese and soda nut artisan loaf £4.20,
goes down really well with a Fursty Ferret Ale!
I love blighty....

Nick with a CV19 pal...

It's live from Laanadaan..... 8)

Livia our transylvanian chef has arrived, 8 months & 1 week pregnant.
I have made a potato pork & chicken pie, Livia wants potatoes, "cooked or raw ?
"Oh! I love them raw....
15632
They have both been decontaminated, tomorrow we have more guests 'bignose,
and I reckon he's got 2nd stage cv19, but my crispy, spicy, tandoori chicken legs will slay them.... 8)

Ps: Livia was impregnated by by another chef 'Gregg the Greek....

Information on travelling with mental health conditions is available in our guidance page. Further information is also available from the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC).....

7 weeks here now and I'm running low on LM's, I count the weeks by the ever decreasing stockpile.
(1carton=1week) @ £14quid.
Big-nose came for dinner last night, we decontaminated him in no uncertain terms,
he stank of spray dettol after.
He was made to have his 1st glass of wine alone on the balcony.
15634
Speaking as a disbarred Dr, I think it's just a temporary recession and he's in denial...

I'm off on my daily shopping expedition after this,
ending up in the local, We had a shooting last night in our park,
3 shots fired and us watching a 'hoody speeding down the road on his push-bike.
Basically it's the park opposite Grayson Perry's gaff, it'll be in the local paper this friday.
(nb: 17 years ago Grayson won the Turner prize with a pot depicting our then local hoodies)

Pork risotto tonight and Masterchef...
Ps: I'd love to 'self-isolate if only, the 2 'germ-carriers will be back tonight.
God help us...well me really.... 8) tara........

We Brits love our Dettol, and it is one thing the UK is not going to be running out of anytime soon, or so I am reliably informed. A whole new production line for it has been set up in the last month to ensure we Brits can still disinfect the old fashioned way. The only problem is, they still can only say that it will kill 99.9% of all known germs. That being the case I have to assume that it is still not guaranteed to be effective against the present strain of Corona virus.

And have no problems with supplies...
That's a lot of sh*t methinks... 8)

She got the very last flight out of Southampton, she didn't know where Southampton was..I told her..
15638
I told her to take precautions, I was speaking from a sexual standpoint. but got lost in translation.
You try living with 2 Transylvanian nutters, I mean Sim's mum was 'batty as a fruit-cake..

Anyhow, nice and quite in the pub today, funny thing is nobody has any yeast for sale anywhere!
My mate Raj said "what's happening ? we've got loads of bread, they also have a freezer full of toilet rolls.

Well day 4 5 6 or even 7. It's great peace and quiet, streets relatively peaceful.
Sat in the sun outside Cafe Kick supping a cider & ice & perusing the latest corona copy of Private Eye.
Malkovich used it for the opening scene of his Hideous Man.


Sim's off to Borough Market, it's next to her company, it's dead trendy & tasty..
she called "do we need anything ? "No, then I called her back "tamarind paste and some stinky cheese...
Just emptied my suitcase of all those little necessities one needs whilst in a foreign land for some time.
It's resembles a Fortnum and Mason Hamper, that'll surprise her when she gets back.

As she already has hoarded rice, the idea appealed to her at the time, So I might as well start knocking out
my curries, I'm good at curries plus no-one is buying pre-cooked naan breads.... 8)

Up again with the 'crack of sparrows and off down to Smithfield Market.
I've never seen it so quiet, 4 kilo leg of Lamb £32quid.
On the way back popped into Waitrose's, just me myself and the staff..
I noticed I've been self isolating for over 1 month now, a situation I am very happy with....8)
