Re: The Chinese coronavirus

Schools shutting, so got to find kids something to do once they've sat and done an hour of times tables and spelling every morning. IMG_20200320_092753268.jpg Question is have I got enough paint!

Must be spring!

[/img]So the the sun was out today, bit of a breeze but quite pleasant. We'd nipped out for the essential shopping - cat litter (got to keep him happy, never know when he might come in useful eh Jason!), I'd cut the grass so then what - everything is shut.

Re: The Chinese coronavirus

the " I will carry on as usual" brigade wouldn't be able to! What's it like in other people's areas?

Chap from our office went to Italy last Sunday as it was already booked and paid for. He's spent most of his time there making arrangements to get back and will then have to shut himself away on his own for two weeks :banghead:

Yeah, I would love to do Wanaka. I have dropped a few hints but having done Warbirds Down Under at Temora a couple of years ago the better half is not so keen on doing such a long flight again. We'll see.
