    Ditto, and I hope she gets to see them (and the new arrival) soon. And yes, the lockdown or virus hasn't really affected us in any serious way either so far.

    However, speaking for myself, and as someone who's essentially a 'free spirit', largely divorced from the system and who values his FREEDOM, second only to his life and that of others he loves or cares for, and who's used to doing WHAT he likes, WHEN he likes, and also GOING where he likes, when he likes, whilst (within reason) being answerable to no-one, I utterly ABHOR being told by the authorities what I can do and where I can go - and essentially being placed under house arrest. *That* REALLY irks!!

    I detest ANYONE being 'in charge' of my daily life, or movements, as I'm simply not used to it. That's why I'm so passionate about protecting my human rights and civil liberties.

    So for me, as soon as those shackles are removed, the better, especially as I'm a social animal (not a loner, as many here appear to be) and so enjoy seeing my friends and family (many who've been unable to visit from Scotland during this pandemic), plus taking my wife out for a nice meal, or to the cinema, pub, etc, etc, oh and to get a freakin' haircut (!!) plus, and this is a real BIGGIE for me, as a practicing Catholic, being able to attend weekly masses at church, and praying to God in the normal way, as part of a congregation and in the presence of my priest (Canon), or Bishop, rather than watching a totally soulless streamed version of it on a TV!

    Spiritual sustenance is as important to other Christians and me, as any other kind.

    Therefore, as soon as all that returns to some semblance of normality, the happier I'll be, BUT I'm also acutely aware and grateful of how lucky I am compared to some!! So let's all hope that we can get through this pandemic are quickly as possible, and once again be FREE and IN CONTROL of OUR own lives...

    Not really doing anything different from normal, like I said.
    No worries, gotcha! Well done with the cleaning, shows how bored you are, lol! So next time I visit, I'll be able to eat off the floor?

    Not been bored at all. I always try to do some serious cleaning in the spring. Did the upstairs last year. That was a job and a half. Especially the back bedroom. You know when they excavate those Egyptian tombs and first of all they have to clear 500 tons of rubble from the entrance passageway by hand? That's what it was like.

    Lol... The question you have to ask though, is WHY did you let it get that way in the first place?

    TBH, having that level of clutter around would've done my box right in... I mean SERIOUSLY SO - I'd have made me ILL!

    Well there's only me here and I only need one bedroom. So the other one just got used as a store-room. But eventually it got to the point where I couldn't even get in there. Still quite a lot of gear in there but now it's all tidy and organised. I don't really fret about stuff like that, it's not important. But it had got out of hand and needed sorting.

    No worries mate, but it shows how in that respect we're very different. I'd have made the spare room into some sort of usable living space. Has it never bothered you from the point of view of bringing a chick back to entertain, even when you were younger? In that respect, I'd always want to have some kind of cool 'bachelor pad', to woo the ladeez...

    Trust me, if I were a single guy, *that* would be a major consideration - even at your age!

    When I moved in 20 years ago I had no furniture at all and hardly any possessions, just a telly, the hi-fi and some records. And the telly was rented. Every room was empty. It just built up over time. So was not a problem. As far as women are concerned, always use her place to get together or next thing you know she's moved in. Done all that in the past and I'd rather live on my own.

    Fairy muff, but that may be because you just haven't found the right woman to share your life with. Unfortunately, you've got a rather cynical attitude in that respect, probably (justifiably) because of past bad experiences, but it doesn't need to be like that.

    I just couldn't live without having a companion or someone/something to care for or come home to, even if it was just a dog or a cat, the latter which incidentally I think you should seriously consider getting when you retire
