Thomo, sorry to read the sad news, but you're doing the right thing, following the advice and guidelines. I wish you well and I'm sure you'll come out to enjoy more days out at the reserves.
In the meantime, keep in touch

Hazel in the Gironde estuary, France
Taking one day at a time as it's all we can do; my worst fear would be being asymptomatic so the sooner the better for being able to test for carriers, those infected and people who have already had Covid19 . Glad you can at least order some food Hazel but a shame you can't venture from the house further than the garden. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before more rules are enforced here and really hope everyone does their utmost to heed the advice or I dread to think of the consequences. I do feel the majority of the public fully understand the importance of listening to the professional advice. It's going to be a long haul so its good to have this community link. I'll try and post as many upbeat threads as I can but with not going out much now it will be hard to get any photos.

James G said:I think we all will be self isolating sooner then later, I am coming up to 72 and have COPD so after hearing this off Elaine, I wont be going out again and I am sorry to hear you may have this dreaded virus so hope all goes well for you and wish you all the best, so all I can say is stay safe everyone.
That is the governments intention listening to Boris' latest brief last night.
In view of the seriousness of Covid19, I feel it is necessary to sensibly restrict movement, especially as no medication is yet available.
