I’d go along with the social distancing, particularly in shops and when queuing! I was down at M&S at the Nugents and Tesco in Orpington and now it has settled down, shopping is a lot more civilised!
Unfortunately as a result online its murder, and if like me your elderly 72, cant drive for health reasons and all your neighbours are elderly you have to try to get bits every other day form the local shops and when we being encouraged to stay at home its a bit annoying , but hey ho I manage, but no thanks to all the selfish cnuts in store, and now online.

Ulster - The old Far Eastern hands in the back of beyond like Sarawak or New Guinea used to catch a blue bottle pull its wings off and let it roam around the the top of your Old Man. Apparently the effect was to say the least sensational and whilst not as good as the real thing satisfied a need

I've tried something similar in the bath, but only removing one wing. Poke the old fella up like a periscope, and the bluebottle circles the tip - similar to a greyhound lapping a track. Tip of the day. Acquire 2 bluebottles, remove the passenger side wing from one, and the driver side wing from the other. One will circle clockwise, the other anticlockwise. Alternate for effect.;)
