    At least all the canals and rivers are open,but with no pubs or curry houses open there is much less incentive to navigate.

    In Berkhamsted at present and doing my statutory 1km every 14 days.Will refresh the paintwork internally and if the sun shines and it warms up a bit, will tackle the exterior .Thankfully decent bottled and canned beer is readily available in the supermarkets even if the slabs of Stella have been gobbled by the panic buyers.

    The club seems to be doing very well in its new incarnation, and both pubs in the village have also started doing a food and drinks takeaway service.

    With these new takeout services popping up, what's the deal with just sitting and drinking in any front seating area the pub has as if it was a warm summers evening? Especially if I've arrived with my own vessel to purchase a pint as some are insisting on?

    The general Idea is takeaway, I did so with a couple of pints last night. It's not the same drinking at home. It may of course all be null and void very soon if and when all non essential operations will probably be shut down.

    I probably spend slightly more time in the gym than in pubs and that's my two main hobbies gone. Will continue training at home or on random scaffolding, and switch to more craft cans.

    Well, that plan is now down the tubes too...

    "This means people can continue to enter premises to access takeaway services, including delivery drivers. Planning regulation will be changed to enable restaurants, cafes and pubs which do not currently offer delivery and hot food takeaway to do so.This will be clearly communicated by the government when in effect. People must not consume food or drinks on site at restaurants, cafes or pubs whilst waiting for takeaway food"

    Things must be getting serious - we spent almost the whole day in the garage, sorting / tidying / clearing out, a task so tedious that we can only have considered doing it as distraction therapy!

    After about 12+ beers at home, I will think I am in the pub and start talking to myself (and answering!)

    Later, i shall go on YouTube and have a virtual train ride home. If I do my usual trick and fall asleep beyond my home station, it won't matter because I will wake up at home, probably looking up to the ceiling.
    Then I will have my cup of OXO and remember Preston.

    What shall I do Tomorrow.
    Maybe Lincoln?......or Norwich?.....or Helston??. Even all three?
    All so much easier and cheaper than going out.

    Or maybe a visit to my Psychiatrist!
    Nice one . cheers
