It’s great to hear that today’s the third day in a row with no Covid-19 deaths in Scotland. Hopefully that continues as we go into phase 3. I think we’re all aware of the risk of a second wave and how devastating that would be to see tougher restrictions come back. It is a bit concerning to see a lot of big crowds gathering on beaches and in city centres recently though and I really hope that it doesn’t prove to be the catalyst for another wave.
We’ve been sticking to the rules as they’re set out and even yesterday evening I wasn’t prepared to let the torrential rainfall ruin a couple of beers with pals:
All over the world we’re starting to see partial lockdowns being re-imposed so fingers crossed our slow, cautious approach pays off and avoids that. I am quite worried for countries like the USA with cases rising significantly amid pushes to re-open earlier. Even more concerning is the situation in Yemen, people there are suffering from the very same deadly virus, a civil war and now hunger; as their foreign aid has been drastically reduced. For me that really puts our own situation into perspective.
I mentioned to Raashi yesterday that in the future when the virus is gone and hopefully we’ve all recovered from it’s effects, we might look back at think ‘how good was that 4 months off at home?!’
I am itching to get back to work now though as I know that it’s getting close and it’s exciting to open our new premises. We had someone come and take a fridge from our staff carpark during the week which was a big help. I was supposed to hire a van and take it to the dump but we seen on our CCTV that two guys fancied it for themselves – saves me the bother so thank you fellas? 🤷🏻♂️
I’ll keep the CCTV footage private so long as you don’t bring it back 😂
Have a good week everyone and by the next blog ill have a date for re-opening.
