I think it won't be too difficult getting sessions booked. Very few of my friends (late 20s) are keen to return. I use EveryoneActive which has an older crowd generally and I think they will all be staying away.

As my nearest gym from home is a 2.5 mile walk my tentative plan is to go only twice a week but go balls to the wall each time. I won't be showering there or using the changing rooms.


It wouldn't surprise me if showers and changing rooms were out of use anyway. Turn up in what you train in and leave as you came.

I use a low cost commercial gym £15 per month with a very mixed crowd including a lot of students. I can see day time being especially quiet with the die hards coming in after work.

Think a lot of people will stay away to start with..only the die hard in straight away.. its another good reason for the excuse makers not to go ... i imagine it will follow similar lines as just before lockdown..limited capacity spaced out equipment etc

Pretty much my thoughts.

I was expecting town to be a lot busier on Wednesday night but it was pretty dead. Can't see a reason gyms will be much different.

August 3rd for me, so that all the first week warriors have gotten their facebook check-ins out of their system, and are plotted up back on the couch.

I can't see it being crazy so I'll be giving it a go. Possibly not on the Saturday but certainly in that first week.

It's going to be interesting to see what measures they've had to implement.

I wasn't too sure about going on the first Saturday but my local seems to be taking a very responsible and I'll be there to support them. (Seriously it's all for them.....)

They've put the following measures in place:

- We will be stepping up our sanitising hand washing & cleaning regime

- All staff will be wearing appropriate PPE: face masks/ visors & gloves

- all condiments will be in sachets for single use & disposable

- a one way system will be in place with designated entrance and exit doors (Entrance will be via the doors opposite co-op)

- We will have a member of management on the door all day every day.

- we are temperature checking every staff member before shift & all customers on arrival

- all tables will be spaced a minimum of 1m apart or split by a standing screen (luckily we are fortunate enough to have plenty of space to spread out)

- our wollaton app will be in place for all orders to be placed & food/drink will be delivered to the table by a staff member (we will have disposable menus available for anyone who doesn’t wish to use the ap)

- Perspex screens are being fitted at the bar to separate customers from bar staff

- We will be running a reduced food menu to allow a smaller kitchen team to allow a safe social distance working environment

- No standing will be permitted (everyone must be sat at tables) & no congregating at the bar will be allowed

It'll be quite different but if it's implemented and followed then it seems safe and also tolerable to me. Guess it comes down to how many twats descend on the place without booking......

Just booked a table for Saturday night. Can't wait.

I don't go to the pub regularly anyway although I'm planning on being out on Wednesday 7th for a few beers and curry with Stu.

Something that's been bothering me slightly:

The pub closures were announced on a Friday if I remember correctly with closure at mid-night that same day. A lot of people made the most of it that day and were drinking literally 'til they got kicked out and many people berated them saying that they were disgusting/irresponsible.

Is it equally as bad for people to be waiting outside next Saturday for the pubs to open? I can;t imagine the same degree of moaning although it doesn't seem very different to me.

Oh and I cut my own hair too......

I wouldn't have got that.  My guess is that somebody has got one for a fishtank and chucked it out because they don't want it.  Some bird has found it, taken a bite decided it was rubbish tucker and dropped it in your garden.   Do you have someone in mind to keep the revived starfish? 

Looks like I was overly optimistic with my 0.001% survival chance.

Confirmed dead.

I was fairly certain it was dead anyway but a bucket of water at least confirmed it just in case. Had it somehow recovered my plan was a message on facebook hopefully to find someone with a saltwater fish tank who could adopt it. Failing that knowing me I'd have spent thousands on a set up just to keep the bloody thing. There would have course be the possibility of a drive to the coast for a return to the sea.

Sadly t'will never be as it's absolutely brown bread.

So.....

How the hell did it get there?

As you can see by the picture it appears fresh enough to give an attempt a revival. I've read that they've very hardy and even able to regrow limbs so the slightly chewed bit could come back....

I've only given it a 0.001% chance of a comeback as it really was dry but certainly not 'bone dry'.

I don't think it was one that at some point had been artificially dried out as there's no way it could get back to where it's at now. It feels too real to have been artificially dried out.

I'll give it a few hours and see what happens.

How do I post a picture? I used to use photobucket but I don't think that's an option now is it?



Whatsap it to me I'll post it.

I don't have your number.

I've sent a SAE to your place via carrier pigeon. Could you write your number down and send it back.

Cheers

Starfish?

Seahorse?

Dolphin?



Winner!! Although now I wish it had been a seahorse as that would've been incredible.

So how the hell did it get there?

I can't tell if it had been alive at any point whilst in my garden. It was tucked away in a corner and took Zeus some digging to get to it so I suspect it may have crawled there to escape the heat but then dried out a few weeks ago when it was really hot and sunny.

It's location suggests it can't have just randomly dropped there or have been thrown over the fence.

The obvious answer is that it was purchased by someone as a dry starfish but it still felt a bit pliable. This may be because it's got soaked recently of course but who knows?
