One-Liner Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

If you came here by car, you should not be here.

I saw this sign on a park gate yesterday. It was from before the slight relaxing of the lockdown rules but I had to agree.

This is part of LindaGHill’s One-Liner Wednesday.

    I feel like putting β€˜Not local? THEN GO HOME’ stickers on the tourists cars!

      I totally agree πŸ’œ but we had not seen our eldest son for nine

      Sorry trying to say, we have not seen our eldest son for nine weeks. We drove down to Brighton , allowed, met him in a park, had a socially distance picnic, it was so good to see him and he was so pleased to see us. He hardly sees anyone as he works from home at the moment. We took our own picnic, took all our rubbish home, stayed two hours, cleared up after Ruby and came home. We didn’t even see the sea. Lovely to see our lad, we’d managed to see the others so now we know they are okay πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

        Your circumstances are different and I am so glad you got to see each other. This responsible attitude is so rare here.
        I’ve chatted with Bro on Skype, had a phone call from OB and a text for my birthday from Sis. They are OK which is good, as for extended family, other than those in NZ, no mention and no contact.
        The tourists who come here don’t visit family. They let their dogs foul everywhere and don’t clear up (we’ve watched them walk away from it), dump their litter wherever it falls regardless of there being plenty of bins (these and dog waste are emptied daily), play their music at full volume as they drive by, and you already know how I feel about them shopping. Social distancing? Fat chance and heaven help anyone who gets in their way between the beer shelves and pizza chillers.
        We expect it in the summer being on the coast with a beautiful beach, but we are dreading the weekend and will stay at home.

        Yes I totally agree, that’s why we arranged mid week and took everything with us. Brighton was crowded phew. And people were trying though not all, we saw all the things you mentioned. we avoided all shop like the plague. We were worried about him πŸ’œπŸ’œ

        I can imagine. I was so worried about Bro as I sent emails and got no reply, and one time when I called it was the middle of their night as I always get the time difference wrong. I rang him one morning our time and got to speak to him. This was before the virus really took a hold. SIL reads my blog and keeps up with our news that way and we try to Skype once month.

        Skype is a great way to keep in touch. Family, sometimes more trouble than they are worth .. hubby’s are ! πŸ’œ

        We’re glad it’s just us to worry about.

        I wish I had a family Willow, and although I wish Mum and Dad were still with us, I’m glad they’re not. ❀

        I can tell you Di sometimes family is so painful, I am so close to tears and the edge and it’s all family, maybe not my children though they have caused grief in their time. I have had it with hubby’s family this damn lockdown and Covid I am so tired!

        Oh Willow, I feel for you. Hubby and I have argued more these past weeks than the entire 31 years we’ve been together. Neither of us are sleeping that well, and the problems with Maggie haven’t helped. I lost it a little while ago and that good cry may have eased the stress a little but didn’t change anything. I’m just glad we got Dick sorted out last year as I dread to think what would have happened (or not) if he had turned up now.

        Thank you Di, sorry to vent life goes on and I know I am not the only one under stress πŸ’œ

        We have to blow from time to time. It’s good for the soul…………… kinda. You’ve had a lot to deal with too, so no wonder you’re flagging! We’re human, not super heroes. It’s OK ❀

    The self-entitled have been self-entitledly, good for what a few weeks, and now they self-entitledly invade every space they can because of their self-entitledmentness.
