Cyber Family 200
I use FaceTime regularly to keep in touch with my Grandchildren and during the current lockdown it is a really useful tool to have. I also have Skype, but rarely use it now as Face time is more convenient!
Enjoy yourself with it, especially now with the social distancing we all have to observe.
Are you keeping well?
Yes I’m keeping well, thank you, I trust that you are too.
FaceTime is an Apple system which is available on Mac computers, iPads and i phones. It’s extremely easy to call someone else who has the Apple system using their email address or mobile number.
You can also use Skype on the gadgets but I find FaceTime more convenient as I don’t have to leave the sofa!! You are also able to send and receive text’s using the internet or mobile data.
I am doing very well. I decided to leave the RBL because they have closed 4 holiday hostels with out good reason. All for now take care.
Hello Kim I hope all is well with you.
Not too much to say but will try and get on here more often seeing it’s free whilst the virus is rampant.
Take care and God bless yous.
Dont forget to put your clocks forward tonight.
Large G&Ts all round.
Lots of irresponsible people allowing their children to run the streets during coronavirus.
It seems to be getting worse. I’m staying in to be safe.
I’m just checking in haven’t much to say.
Day 10 of isolation.
I remain in self-isolation following text instructions from 'Big Brother' to stay indoors and not go out. Youngest son, Andrew, does a Tesco shop on a Friday morning and I have a very good neighbour who will do any extra shopping or errands I need.
Stay in and stay safe, everyone. Thank goodness for TVs and laptops!! xx
Kim good that you got the gin in.
I am making good use of the lockdown as I am knitting Margaret a cardigan.
Colum I am sure your family are looking after you.
She gets me every flaming year and even though I've tried it on her I've never managed it. Too darn smart for me!
Pamela and everyone, have you had any thoughts about installing Skype on your computers. I put it on a few days back and have been chatting to our Connie and it was great when she held her lap top in front of little Alfie yesterday and he realised what was happening. The first time he was baffled but yesterday I got a lovely big smile off him when he saw who it was. He's a smarty also and getting ready for walking in my opinion. He tries but so far he can't make it but he's only eight months old.
Take care everybody - I know it's a nuisance but it's better to survive rather than act like idiots as some people are doing. Luckily our daughter and her husband Ed are shopping for us but not coming in - just dropping things off at the door. They have a dog which loves to come in beause she always get biscuits but yesterday she had to stand at the gate with Ed and looked really sad. Next time I'll have some biscuits ready and put them out for her. Anyway bye for now.
but very restful. Like you all my family friends and neighbours look after me.
They have me spoilt and I’m saving a fortune as they won’t accept my money. Lol. Long may it last: My grandson Ben signed with Celtic on an extended contract making it 6 years altogether. He’s been sent home by them till September on extended holidays.
I was going to do the garden but gave it up.
It’ll be there tomorrow.
I’m just back from New York left just before they closed the airport down. They are treating this virus much more responsibly
Than we in the UK.
All for now take care and stay safe. Stay at home if you don’t have to go out. This is a recent pic of me.
Isolation is a word I don’t ever want to hear again. I miss Smurf for the company. My Ben is home from Celtic on extended leave until September or until the virus stops which I doubt. Regards to Ian.
Colum good to hear that the family are looking after you.
All for now take care.
I am ok now that my prescription has been sorted out, particularly my painkillers. Just one small problem and that is a constant feeling of nausea, which isn't very pleasant. The doc has prescribed something for it and I am waiting for the chemist to deliver...……. I may have to wait until Monday.
I am trying to use up food in my fridge before it becomes out of date so I had a sausage sandwich for breakfast today.
Hopefully, my youngest son, Andrew, will be making a food delivery later on and as I had an e-mail from Tesco earlier on in the week saying they hoped to be back with normal stocks by the end of the week, there shouldn't be too many things missing.
Luckily, Kim and Vicky, there doesn't seem to be any shortage of gin and tonic, thank goodness!
Remember, everyone...….. Stay safe, stay home.xx
Sounds like Colum could do with something alcoholic too - would that be Pussers Rum? (may have got that wrong so do forgive my ignorance!).
Just glad that I haven't had to rely on supermarket deliveries yet - I can justify driving to my local ASDA (nearest) once a week so I can at least pick and choose what's on offer and the shelves have been quite well stocked recently too.
Pamela, good to know your prescription has been sorted out and I do hope you get the nausea under control soon.
Take care everyone and stay safe and well.
Pamela I hope the nausea clears up soon
Terry good to know you and Patricia are being looked after.
Colum I miss the get togethers t hat we used to have at Margarets.
Stay safe everyone.
Andrew was very late delivering the shopping last night. Having experienced the chaos of an early morning shop he decided to try a late night one so didn't get here until around 10pm. He did get plenty of shopping though and my fridge and freezer are now full.
See you all back here later for G & T s, girls! xx
Having mentioned that I was worried about Andrew's twin, Duncan, late of the Army Intelligence Corps now at Thames House, London, I was informed that he had already had the coronavirus having contracted it on a flight back from Boston! Fortunately it was a mild case and he is now fully recovered.!
My neighbour got me a Daily Mail this morning so I have been able to go through the Weekend magazine and plan my TV viewing for the week
I believe the Boss will be broadcasting a message from Windsor Castle tomorrow, God Bless her.
Payment later. Not seeing my family is the dirts part but needs must:
Still lots of people not heeding good advice. Of course they will blame all but themselves if God forbid they contract this horrible disease.
All for now.
Stay home and stay safe. HM is speaking time the nation. I left New. York just before they closed the airport. Talk about last minute. I’m glad to be home. Isolation
Thousands away from family is unthinkable.
I do go on. Hello Vicky abd Ian. I too miss those wee trips. Must arrange one when coronavirus is sorted. Perhaps in Blackpool, something to look forward to.
Harry seems to be in good form.
Stay safe everyone and stay at home. I do wish a lot of eejits would do the same.
All for now take care Gid bless you all.
This Coronavirus certainly put the cat upon the pigeons. It’ll be a while before we get sorted. It’s the isolation that grips my txts excuse my French. It’s 9630 here and for once I got a good nights sleep.
All for now Kim. Be safe take care and God bless you.
