  1. You missed out the bits about being face fitted for the type of mask used, being clean shaven and using the appropriate mask for the hazard.
  2. Everything ive read says its advice, people are "advised" to shield if in extremely vulnerable group, or, people "should" shield in the extremely vulnerable group, I can not recollect reading anywhere where anyone official has actually stated you must or shall shield or self isolate. My GP "advised" me to shield and wait for the shielding letter but told me they are not the ones sending them. Hospital told me to follow the GP's advice and that I would receive a shielding letter but they were not the ones sending them. I find it a bit odd they say that as so far the few other people who have received a shielding letter got them from their GP or hospital.
  3. People still do not understand whats happening or what they should be doing, just this morning seeing someone post on social media that they rode from their house into the nearby countryside, rode on trails and tracks had to climb fences and walls and got lost in some woods and then commended themselves on social distancing. This is not really the time to be trying to carry on as near normal as possible.
  4. I don't find it hard to believe at all, I have been with this GP for just 2 or 3 years yet my records only go back just over 1 year, the hospital consultant I have now been seeing for around 25 years. Perhaps I just don't have access to all of my records or the communications between the hospital and my GP, although I do usually get copies of those letters.
  5. There are no records of my hospital treatments on my GP records, I just checked. Looks like I will have to wait untill 29th of March before contacting my GP according to current guidelines.
  6. Thanks for the link, being on methotrexate and a diabetic looks to put me into the high or very high category. I have a feeling that I will get skipped over as my GP isn't allowed to prescribe me the methotrexate, I can only get that from the hospital consultant, anyway, time will tell.
  7. Yes that's correct, the wording on the nhs site isn't actually 100% clear to me People on immunosuppression therapies "sufficient" to significantly increase risk of infection. so I still have to wait up to a week to find out if im sufficiently immune suppressed. Mostly im just trying to not be a bother to others and sort out for myself whatever I can
  8. Maybe I should have panic bought? Looks like i'm going to be in the self isolation group for 12 weeks or shielding group as its now called, so I've just registered and tried to shop on 4 different online shopping sites, none have any delivery slots available. If anyone knows of any online shops that do have delivery slots available for new customers I would be interested to know
  9. From what I was reading earlier this week I think I was supposed to self isolate for 12 weeks, i'm diabetic and immune suppressed, yesterday it was saying 14 days and now it just seems to be just saying social distancing which is easy as I think ive been doing that for the last 30 years or so. An email today from my employer wanting me to sign a new contract of employment on Monday to reduce the working week, work overtime and weekends at a normal daily rate and take unpaid leave in periods of up to 4 weeks for the next 9 months. starting to get a bit stressed. On the good side I did manage to find a store today that had milk, first time in 6 days.
  10. I've been fortunate enough to have travelled this route to work for over 20 years, very little traffic, good roads and great views, I think in all honesty it has made almost any other journey (especially to work) a bit of a chore. Its not just the winter weather on this route that can cause issues, more in the winter months for sure but they occur all year round, as already noted the wall at the Fox House pub seems to get demolished yearly and the wall at the bridge just down from there and the wall at the surprise don't fare much better. A national speed limit from the Door Moor to the Millstone may be a little ambitious for those that see speed signs as a minimum especially when taking into account some of those nice scenic corners I think the sign listing the number of fatalities had already been placed when I started travelling that way but i'm not sure if its ever been updated or even if its still there. Maybe I've just been lucky, despite seeing cars through walls, into trees, onto verges, upside down cars, cars on there sides, cars in ditches etc so far the worse I have been involved in was a collision with a Badger, sadly the Badger did not survive. I also know of one gentleman who had the misfortune to have a deer run out in front of him, he wasn't hurt, the car was repaired but the deer didn't make it My advice for anyone travelling out that way would be to leave 10 minutes early and enjoy the journey.
  11. Over the last few months I have been doing quite a bit more walking around Sheffield than I have in some time. One of the things I have noticed is that there seem to be quite a few people sleeping rough. Places I have seen them include along the length of the Canal, Graves Park, Weston park, the cemetery on cemetery road, several doorways in the buildings around the cathedral and on the grass in front of the cathedral, tents on the grass on Nursery street and also in Crooks park and many more places including York, Rotherham, Chesterfield, seemingly everywhere I wonder where the public toilets are that they use
  12. Although I am not sure of the exact age of the house I am told it's around 300 years old and was built for the district circuit judge, practicing at the Bagshawe perhaps ?. I seem to recall trying to figure out how old it was some years ago and at that time getting an age of around 270 years which would put it at around 290 years old now. It was originally just one dwelling and later divided into two, one side facing Blackstock road and the other side facing Blackstock drive. Apparently called "Last Cottage" due to it being the last house on the lane (Blackstock road) at the time.
  13. More than likely I will be needing the same contact information, they have placed the new streetlight about 2 foot from my bedroom window. For now I just have to wait until they turn it on to see if it is actually going to be a problem
  14. Got to admit i'm a bit concerned, new street light pole went in today, its about 1 foot closer to my bedroom window than the old light and about 5 foot higher, the old light is just below the level of my bedroom window, looks like the new one will be level with the top of the window and about 2 foot away. How bright are these things ? lol
  15. Today water bombs, perhaps rocks or kittens tomorrow, who knows by the end of the week they may be throwing each other into the road.
