Nightingale Hospital opened after 9 days.
Didn't think we were capable of doing things like that anymore

Nah, the hospitals will be ok.

You'll have to work until you're 85, every school will have 50 kids in a class and they'll bring back workhouses, but the hospitals will be ok.

No chance, with the amount of money being used to prop up the economy and the amount of Furloughing happening i can see another 20yrs of austerity ahead......Plus new draconian laws etc.....

Maybe one positive after the pandemic has passed could be that the NHS is once again appreciated, supported and funded, its staff are paid what they deserve, and the 40+ thousand nursing vacancies are filled.

The clapping to support the NHS workers is brilliant, but it won't save their lives. Decent supplies of PPE will.

We're not a very neighbourly road and usually keep ourselves to ourselves but it was good to see a good turn out for the 8 o'clock clap tonight

Hi all,

Heartwarming story in the Eastern daily press today.
A Norfolk ambulance paramedic after a tough night shift, still in uniform, joined a long queue at Lidl in Cromer to buy some shopping. Each member of the queue one after another gave him their place until he was next in line at the front and spontaneously gave him a round of applause.
Having got his shopping and at the checkout, a lady, who had chatted to him in the queue, rushed to the till and swiped her card to pay his bill. He tried to object, but the lady gave him a big smile and said it's too late now.
The paramedic told the press he was touched and humbled by the appreciation he was shown and said he was incredibly proud to wear the uniform and do the job with his profession colleagues.

BB.

Glad you're feeling better

I'd have maybe put the t-shirt and shorts in the fire after that long though....

1st day out of bed😀 in six days, had extreme fatigue, intermittent hot sweats and occasional coughs! But nothing major apart from exhaustion. Sometimes even reading forum was exhausting!

Was it flu or CV provably never know but only got out to use toilet, couldn’t be arsed to wash or change t shirt and shorts I was minging.

The positives today was leaving the spare room, having a long shower and throwing t shirt and shorts and bedding on boil wash 😀 still quite tired but had time to focus on what I have taken for granted my wife, my health and how lucky we both are in regards to our home life.

So remember to put time aside for conversation and actually listening to each other rather than vegging in front of tele with occasional nod or murmour 👍🏻

I won't go into details but yesterday my missus got involved with something concerning a child. It wasn't until it was over she had the time to think how the **** did a TA get involved with that!

I guess there are Headteachers and then there are Headteachers
I think you're right

Not sure that is the norm ...…………
My wife is a headteacher , and is working closely with her Academy chain to explore all fair avenues to everybody in this unprecedented period.
Her school has a rota of the senior leadership team in school every day as is a legal requirement , alongside a skeleton staff of T.A's and teachers.
She is having web seminars with whoever is in school each day , as well as with her cluster group within the Academy.
Plans are in place where parent mail is used to keep everybody informed , as well as continuing to offer some sort of education to those children not in. They cannot follow the curriculum at this time , and when the stats fall off the end of the world in 6 months time , no doubt OFSTED will be round with their hatchets out baying for blood.
She currently has a potential of 62 children eligible to attend ( which took an awful lot of time and effort to sort out initially ) and where so far there has been between 2 and 11 children actually attending. They have in place now a scheme where the vouchers for free school meals are being sent out directly to parents.

In her school , anybody who volunteers or is on the rota to cover the Easter holidays will be given lieu holiday to take after Easter , teachers will not receive extra money.

I guess there are Headteachers and then there are Headteachers...……………...

I learned very early on in my teaching that you look after your TA's and your site staff as they are invaluable and when school cuts hit, often the first areas to be squeezed.

Just heard from my mate who is a big Southampton supporter.

Her dad is a lifelong fan. He just had a phone call from Saints defender Jack Stephens asking if he was ok and if he needed anything. They are calling round all the pensioner season ticket holders and left a number for him to call back if he needs any help.



Well done the Saints
