I won't be going on one, but the tourist boats (City Cruises) are moving about again. It's made me weirdly emotional :lg:.

I went into M&S today and that’s exactly how I felt! Even the polyester trousers I wouldn’t wear now/before/ever made me feel heart-swellingly emotional. I was in a shop! People were there! Clothes could be touched without first passing through the hands of Hermes!

I pressed the lift buttons with my elbows and ultimately left with nothing, but it was very nice to feel a bit normal.

Just a reminder that the second Self Employed Income Support Scheme application process closes on the 13th of July.

People that were not adversely affected at the time of the first application so couldn't apply, but now are affected can apply for this second round.

Of course if you were adversely affected for the first application, and still are, you can apply again :))

No, the first application ends then. The second application is for those affected from 14th July. Or so I understood. :look:

From the government website:
If you’re eligible and your business has been adversely affected you must make your claim for the first grant on or before 13 July 2020.

This scheme is being extended. If you’re eligible for the second and final grant, and your business has been adversely affected on or after 14 July 2020 you’ll be able to make a claim from 17 August 2020. You can make a claim for the second grant if you’re eligible, even if you did not make a claim for the first grant. Find out more about the extension to the scheme.

Oh that got my heart racing. Imagine missing the deadline. I thought they said August when it was first announced but it would hardly be out of character to totally change that and say nothing.

I think the most recent changes announced in Scotland mean grandchildren will be allowed to hug their grandparents, if I'm reading it right. My parents are so excited and I'm all emotional :cry:

It is but only for under 12s :( Ironically the only one of my mum's grandchildren who is under 12 is TTN who doesn't like hugs :lol:

I also thought it meant that kids can do playdates without distancing which surely be better for them and parents who won't have to holler "stay apart" :mog:

Cheerfully reading about what a massive disaster opening the bars in the US has been. :lol: And that they think that now people have been allowed back in them, closing them won't work as they've all got the buzz from it now and will just have house parties/speakeasies.

There is no way people will go back to social distancing now the restrictions have been lifted where I am. There’s been so much resistance to it in the first place.

It does seem like once the seal is broken, it's totally broken. Are they looking at locking down again around you?

Your poor mum. Sal.

Yes, no need for disapproving looks when younger kids are out playing together. And no shrieks :))

Nope. Masks are not mandatory and the advice is to social distance and wash hands regularly.

Yesterday was the deadline to reopen music venues, conference centre, exhibitions etc and I didn’t read anything to say that it was rolled back.

The changes sound good, and have come in just as Joe has gone to his dad's :mog:

My parents have had some of the grandkids for the day, and have others for the weekend. My smallest nephew is smashing stuff and I think it's just adding to the joy of having them around again :))

Scottish Turtles, did you see masks in shops are mandatory from next week?
