Mine is on the 30th. Feel free to send me a A*300/2.8...

We're hoping to go away for the weekend but that might be kyboshed too.

We live in a wooden house and the front step is not actually attached to the house. It collects the leaves under it so we decided to move the step and clear it out today. Didn't get far as there was a hedgehog asleep in them .
All leaves back in place, hedgehog undisturbed. And yes it was breathing.

Hibernating or a convenient place to stay during daylight? Whatever, there must surely be something in Dutch folklore about a hedgehog under the step bringing good luck to the household.

At the weekend, my grandchildren played 'Pin the slug on the hedgehog's mouth' as part of slightly early birthday celebrations for the 5 year old. Not sure that it will catch on more widely though...

I don't think he was hibernating yet. We have a ground feeder for the birds, with a metal cage thing over it to stop the birds bigger than a blackbird getting to it. Every morning the metal cage has moved, and the feeder is empty. We were going to get a camera to see what it was doing it - duck, goose, rat, marten or hedgehog. Thankfully it looks like it's a hedgehog

Not a total lockdown then. Pubs restaurants etc must close tomorrow, hotels stay open. No booze to be sold after 8pm, whether takeaway or supermarket.
No more than 3 visitors in your house per day, no more than four people together outside. No contact sports for adults, still allowed for under 17s.
Work from home, only essential journeys, bla bla bla.
All for four weeks initially.
Could be worse, and a total lockdown still a possibilty.

Currently enjoying a Red de Vloot (save the fleet) beer. Brewed by the local brewery all procedes for the local charter fleet. Not a red ale as the name would suggest but an unfiltered blond.

At night and got 2 foxes instead

I have my own blonde, and love her to bits.

Just been on the careers advice site, apparently I should be good doing what I did!

Or I could be a manger,builder, receptionist (), the list goes on...

I fell right into your trap Gwyn but was probably just the first! I just had a lockdown moment in the bakery, racking my brains where I had seen the other customer before - she’s the landlady of my local!

I went to the office yesterday, only the fourth time since March. The only person I saw was the receptionist. It felt like there should be tumbleweed rolling across the campus. At lunchtime I went for a walk down to Trafalgar Square. Some of the streets on the way there felt more normal, but the square itself only had handful of people in it. Normally you cannot move for grockels.

Mine is not so much unfiltered as full-blooded no holds barred auburn-haired Welsh! Trained from an early age by her Giles cartoon Granny Jones in the ancient local art of wielding a skillet to deadly effect.
