I very much doubt it. Extenuating circumstances, act of God, whatever you want to call it. It's just one of those mildly existentially threatening ballaches. We'll get through it. 

 

On the plus side (for us), we almost bought a house before Christmas and I'm really, really glad that we didn't now. Entirely selfish I know, but you have personally have to look on the bright side of life, as a great man once said :D

I’m quite looking forward to a few weeks of pottering around the garden! Particularly if the sun comes out too! Got loads of personal projects I want to get on with and never find enough time- just got to make sure I get the materials in before the lockdown.

What would lock down entail though ? Could you say travel a few miles down the road and go fishing ? Sounds mint to me if so..
I could stay in the yard at home and get enough fire wood cut and not be short like last year , cut a load of larch for the poly tunnel and make raised beds and generally get a load of things done I should of years ago!

Yeah of course the government will pay our loss of income, just like when we have two weeks in Tenerife.

It's the selfishness that gets me, two weeks lock down wouldn't be good, but for the good of everyone in the country?

 

I don't have elderly parents/grandparents but these are the people that will cop it first if what I've read is correct.

 

Most of us, (not all) are very small businesses, two weeks off the tools wouldn't be a killer, coronavirus is.
