A Smile for Today and UK Lockdown

The UK is now in a sort of lockdown.  We can leave home to exercise once a day, travel to and from work when it is "absolutely necessary", shop for essential items and fulfil any medical or care needs.

Our shops selling non-essential goods have shut and no gatherings in public of more than two people who do not live together is prohibited.

Stay safe.


A gentleman reader sent me this.  He thinks it was from a Twitter feed but not sure. If it's yours please let me know so I can give credit.

Hi Ronnie, love the pic. We too go into lockdown here in just a few hours for at least 4 weeks at this stage. The restrictions here sound similar to yours. I have been home this week and starting to get bored already!

Take care, stay safe

we've just gone into stage 3 (stage 4 is lockdown) where all entertainment venues, clubs, cinemas, discos, pubs, tuition centres, enrichment and activity centres have been shut.

Mainstream schools and workplaces continue to run.

And FnB outlets have to separate their tables and not have groups of more than 10 (and from the same family) at one table.

Malls and other places have been instructed to enforce distancing measures.

Religious events / worship has also been shut down.

I feel like we're lagging behind some of the other places that have gone into full lockdown, but that sooner or later this is going to be a reality for us too.

Stay safe!

Cute pic Ronnie but, by the expression on her face , she doesn't seem too keen on taking charge of her Husband.
A mischievious grin would be more appropriate !

I love the picture. Her husband though? He just might accidentally put that book out with the recycling.

Our government has published an official list of what businesses may operate. No more hairdressers or barbers - oh my!

There are going to be a lot of bad hair days in the next few weeks!


Love the picture and I think that more women should read that book :)

I saw that Off Licences have now been categorised as essential shops in the UK. It is nice to know that someone is getting the priorities right on your side of the channel.

Roz - Over 70's and people with underlying health considitions have been asked to self-isolate for 12 weeks. This lockdown, I'm not sure how long for. Thanks

Fondles - I thought you would have been in more of a lockdown. I personally think the Uk has been far too slow. Our NHS are struggling for supplies. Sadly this is going on for a very long time.

Hermione - Yep same here. We'll all be growing our hair whether we wont to or not. hanks.

Glenmore - Yes a little grin would would have been amusing. I'm one of those people with the bad hair:) Thanks.

Prefectdt - Made me smile. Off Licences, that one did surprise me. Thanks.

love the book and caption. Sorry to hear you are in lockdown, so maybe you can give this book a try. Suggesting it to P might earn you a extra spanking or two, so it is a win win situation for both of you. (I can imagine P's response as being: "Not bloody likely"
bottoms up and stay safe.
