  1. Was informed today my mums carehome are getting their 1st vaccine jab on the 20th January.
  2. Yes that would be fine I would think, she's no half a pain in the backside
  3. Think it'll be all down to how lucky you are, saying that, the roads up here are very busy, so the chances of you getting stopped could be quite low. My son says he's expecting to be handing out a lot more fines after Saturday than he did during the 1st lockdown. The majority of people up here are ignoring the rules, hopefully after Saturday they will have to comply a bit more.
  4. In Scotland still no mention of non-essential construction or manufacturing again, its as if they want people to forget there's still hundreds of thousands of people travelling to and from work on non essential business.
  5. Lockdown tightening in Scotland from Saturday, not before time !!
  6. I've been in Glasgow the past few days and it looks like they don't do lockdowns !!!
  7. I grew up in Fountainbridge in Edinburgh where he lived as a boy, his house was demolished many years ago, I remember they had outside toilets. My Dad worked as a Milkman in St Cuthberts where Sean worked but was more friendly with his brother. I remember he visited my Primary School in Tollcross and we all got the afternoon off, he had a chat with my son at a Red Carpet event at the Cinema in Fountainbridge during the Edinburgh Film festival, my son who was about 6 at the time asked me who the old guy was. Lovely guy, best Bond ever, Rest In Peace.
  8. The only visiting HB has been outside in the garden and only one member of the family has been allowed to visit. My mums sister has been to see her twice in the past two months but that has also now been stopped. It has been suggested that it's more than likely the staff members who are going in and out that may be causing some concern though you would think they would be getting tested regularly.
  9. Not seen my mum in her care home since March, every time they have said we can go for a visit it has been cancelled. They have been putting up photos on Social Media which is better than nothing. The home phoned yesterday to say every resident was tested last week and hopefully get results today.
  10. I noticed quite a few 'water cannon' type military vehicles being driven on Scottish motorways yesterday.
  11. Looks like the DWP Jobcentre Plus offices in Scotland are trying to re-open to the public on Monday the 27th July. Royal Mail Relay have been delivering a lot of screens, ppe and hand sanitiser ect. Banks have informed us they hope to be back to regular opening hours by September. Cinemas also seem to be gearing up to open shortly in Scotland. Yesterday they announced you could buy tickets for the Edinburgh Hogmanay street party ect !!! This morning they announced it had been cancelled and you could get a refund. ( bunch of clowns) !!!
  12. Shops at the retail park beside me were mobbed today, last week the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh was as busy as it ever has been.
  13. I have a loan with Commsave dx, the deductions come straight from my wages. When you join you tell them how much you want to save either weekly or monthly and you authorise them take deductions from your wages towards your savings account with them, same thing apply's when you have a loan with them.
  14. The number of people speeding on the roads is shocking. Last night I was returning on the M8 from Glasgow to Edinburgh doing about 65mph and a guy in a black BMW flew past me and he must have been doing 110 plus, total madness. When I came round a bend, I could see in the distance the Traffic Police chasing and pulling this guy over, couldn't get the smile of my face when I passed them stopped on the hard shoulder.
