Deleting all my eMails as I do on a Sunday without opening any as they're mainly EBay or Amagonnasellyousomethingzone, I did open the one from Slanj Kilts which promised 50% off Happy Jock Masks.
Having already canceelleed an order for tartan masks because of the long, long, wait for delivery; not the fact that the 12 quid masks had a delivery charge exceeding the cost of the mask you understand, I thought that maybe it was worth a buy at half price.
It might have been had my name had been Billbo as the only half price masks were those of the Stewart Clan and none other. rolleyes.gif
Shame really 'cos I would have got me a couple of Saltire masks wink.gif

It will be interesting to see whether there are spikes in the infection rates following the mass demonstrations over the last couple of weeks. The thuggery in Bristol last night is a clear indication that there are groups who will hijack "legitimate" causes to attack the police and other emergency services. I think we can expect more of the same over the coming weeks as it appears all sorts of groups think the right to protest will protect them from the threat of Covid huh.gif

I can only assume that Slanj have doubled the price, if thats true that is a shocking rip off.

During these long mental fatigue lockdowns, we keep wishing to return to normal, but what do we suggest, ‘Normal’ is. The elders of the society, (older fogies) use a phrase; ‘the good old day, but they weren’t all that good, only we cherry picked what we wish to remember. There will be a recover through the epidemic, but only if we can accept a new Normal…the critical enigma will be…can the world adapt…or wish too?

These were the original prices at the time of the FM sporting hers. I really did put in an order, regardless of the price, but it was only after the order went through that I saw the deliveery charge exceeeded the cost of the item. Still, I thought OK. I'll go with that, but after 3 weeks and a bit I got feed up waiting fot delivery so cancelled my order and stated it was for that reason. They stated then that they had unexpectedly been flooded with orders since the FM was seen wearing one of their products and had to gear up to meet demand ... they didn't say I was still at the back of the queue or would get one for half price but I can reead between the lines as good as the next one rolleyes.gif

Normal adjective
1.
conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected.

Since each individual has their own standard or expectations then normal, by dint of its definition, can not be classed as a normality.
My normal, changed somewhat with the advent of the pandemic in several ways on a positive plane and with only one real negative.
My good ol' days will be remembered as those where:
Closed borders meant no more 50 mile drives to visit our friends soirees in France where English was not the comm0n parle.
Monthly visits to an eye clinic where an open hall was the wating-room with at least 4 meteers spacing betweeeen seating.
Journeys to same by train where no one asked Is this seat taken?
Queueing in supermarkets where one was assured that the chance of an impatient idiot behind one had no opportunity to crash their trolley into vulnerable heels.
Cosy evenings at home with, occasionally, a maximum 5 people around the dining table.
Walking down the high streeet without the normal incurred jostling of the great unwashed.

On the negative sidee:

Joggers! These are those who would normally do their jogging on a treadmill belt in a fitness ceenter but find that they now havee to jog through fieelds wheeree I walk my dog, off the leash, and never learned from childhood on that one should never run towards or awy from a dog with which they are not aquainted; especially when that dog, a herd protection dog, can only do what his instinct demands. yes.gif

Oh yes, I'll look back on the good ol' corona days wheen we return to normal laugh.gif

Peter, I've had those debates about "normal", easy to end up going round and round in the proverbial ever decreasing. If you are suggesting that life will never be the same again, then I agree, but it was never going to be the same even without the pandemic. The pandemic has brought a different dynamic, that's for sure but so has Brexit (mostly under the radar). A great number of people have lost a lot, time, good health, other people, employment, personal opportunities, income, friendships and relationships whilst others have just become very rich.

We've just got to take it on the chin, move on and work with what we've got. There's plenty to moan about but it's by far outweighed by the stuff we should be thankful for.
