I feel it's time for me to get some fresh air, probably tomorrow morning.

I was also a bit anxious to clap.

Some ppl were doing every night this week but the main/advertised time to do it was tonight at 8pm.

I think ppl may carry on though every night or there might be more dates put forward.

I heard loads of people clapping, I thought some local people had gone mad and were engaged in some kind of African ritual or something. Good for them, I guess it works better if you are more the type of person to socialise from windows or something, not that we normally do that here so much in the UK, but I think they do in Italy and France to some extent. There were plenty doing it near me, which was nice to hear I guess (once I realised what it was).

I just know next Thursday evening I'll have forgotten about it and will have gone out to do my weekly shop and on the way back I'll step in a dog turd at the stroke of 8 and everyone will appear at their doors and windows applauding.

Unfortunately helpful posts are not one of my unique strengths but I'm thankful that you realise that I did mean well.

I've had a number or usernames over the years, some of which I can't even remember. I posted sometimes under the name scottidog but that was around 2006.

I'm coping as well as any of us can during a Pandemic, thanks. Hope you are baring up too Raks

Take care
I agree with you, we do all have unique strengths.

Far from it, I can see writing helpful posts is a big strength of yours, judging from your previous posts. It takes a lot of time, thought, and experience to write helpful advice that someone is going to benefit from. It also shows you're considerate and giving. We may not have all the answers, but making the effort to give advice to some random stranger on the internet says a lot about you, and other users of this forum.

I don't recall Scottidog. But then I don't remember what I did yesterday :D it's cool that someone is still around from the time I joined. I hope these SA youngsters treat you with respect :P lol.

Instead of focusing on the negative, you have to make full use of the life you do have. Mourning over something you could've been will unbalance your life, you have to keep moving forward.

Its weird how i've only heard "spill the tea" referred to by americans. I always knew it as "spill the beans" which i'd have thought it would have been the other way around.

The "tea" in that phrase means the letter T, and it's short for "truth"!

I remember watching The Stand as quite a young child and thinking it was amazing. Bet as an adult it will scare the shiz and whiz out of me .

^ I thought the novel was overlong (same with It), which kind of diluted the scariness of the story for me. Didn't care much for the screen adaptation either. Mind you, if I read The Stand in the current situation, I'd probably appreciate King's horror a lot more.

^ I quite liked the length of the Stand but I agree with the length of It. I didn't like the last portion of It much at all (them all sleeping with the woman character etc - I think that happened ) . Tho it's a long time - 20+ years since I've read either tbf. I may think completely differently now.

I do love the way King writes about childhood though, for me he writes like I think/remember.

^ Like I said I haven't read in in 20+ years and I genuinely can't remember.

I just recall I didn't like the end.

I can't remember that scene either I guess my mind has blocked it out. I remember it being a long book too, and making a great paperweight didn't like the tv version

I’m thinking this would be a perfect time to play Rollercoaster Tycoon, a game I absolutely loved growing up. I don’t have a powerful enough computer to play it now though

I also had a Hornby train set, which is now packed away in the loft. Maybe I could get the out, but there’s no where to really put it.

What are your PC specs? I have an original boxed copy of the game, I'm sure most systems could run it?!

Have you met Timmytim7 in Sauk chat? He's into trains too

Does anyone have a Nisa store nearby?

Today I went to my local highstreet to do food shopping, and there were queues OUTSIDE wilko and Iceland. I waited for a while (feeling like a plank, I mean what are you suppose to do whilst standing a few feet apart in a queue, trying to look normal) and gave up.

But, there was no such queue outside Nisa - you could just stroll in, walk past other customers in the aisle, etc. I even celebrated as I saw a 24 pack of toilet roll and bought it!

I could feel other people's eyes burning into me, as I left the shop, walking past the people who were still queued up in the high street, with my 24 pack of loo roll under my arm.

24 Toilet Rolls you say!!!

You are very rich in my eyes Raks! I haven't had any TP for quite a while. What I would do for a pack of 24 toilet rolls!!! Especially as it went everywhere last night.

Anyway, I feel inspired to end this post with a song.

I had a dream that I could physically feel. I was being eaten alive by people it was so weird, it actually hurt though. Usually I don't feel pain in dreams so it was a little bit freaky. Sorry if this was graphic lol

Reading between the lines, I think I know what you're trying to say Dougella. Although In case other members are unsure, I believe Dougella is willing to hook me up with a ready supply of underground toilet rolls. Probably not in batches of 24 of course. As that would draw too much attention. And of course who are we to make aspersions as to where Dougella is procuring these toilet rolls. I for one say that she is offering a very valuable service. And a fine example of what a truly fantastic member she is! Especially as I'm having to be creative right now. It's stinging is what I'm trying to say. So having something softer would go a long way! And I'm not proud to admit this, but my eyes nearly lit up when I saw a pomeranian walk past my window the other day.

Although on reflection, it's entirely possible that I have completely misinterpreted those lines that I was trying to read between....

Anyway, now seems like a good time to dream of those 24 toilet rolls

^ aww I miss going out for coffees and delicious cakes.

I'm a bit of a strangely shaped creature and I went to angrily put my hands on my hips yesterday and the usual little layer of comfy-to-touch podge wasn't there. It made me feel sad that we can't just go out for coffee and cake anymore. Completely interrupted my cross moment as well haha.
