    Good points about unemployment - when it comes to December, there are usually more jobs available, either in shops or places such as the Royal Mail sorting office, sorting cards and parcels. I have a feeling that even Father Christmas could be redundant this year because of social-distancing.

    Watched the Press Briefing this afternoon again.
    Itís crazy to think that last New Yearís Eve we were all cheering and celebrating the new year 2020 ..

    I thought that wearing masks is freedom protecting myself ,the anti people are the problem the longer they defy then the longer we have lock downs they are the ones disrupting things.

    It's supposed to work that if everyone wears masks, distances, disinfects surfaces, minimizes contact etc. we could open up and stay open. I absolutely can't understand the anti people. To me masks would represent freedom, while to them it's some terrible imposition? And so these lock downs which are emergency extreme measure just to keep hospitals and health care people from being totally overwhelmed when too many wouldn't follow instructions of the most informed and educated.

    Just wish we could fast-forward through Christmas and winter and see if things look a tad more hopeful in spring 2021.

    What you save in one department, you spend in another - I believe that I am spending more on online groceries because of not going out.

    Same here, it balanced out my 80% Furlough pay.

    One problem was getting a new mobile phone contract just before the lockdown as I never needed the extra data! If I had known what was going to happen I would have kept my old phone with a cheap sim only deal.

    Very true - I believe that hotels have had fewer bookings this year than in previous years. I booked a Premier Inn room earlier on this year, but had to cancel it because the events in the area I was visiting was cancelled due to coronavirus - I felt as if I was wasting their time when I emailed them in order to cancel it.

    Must be quite a relaxing experience - 3.00 am in a sorting office and watching thousands of envelopes go round and round machines.

    Think a lot of hospitality jobs will go,as well as high street shops,online shopping was killing the high street before this virus .

    One year I did a temporary job at my local sorting office when I was between jobs.

    It was an effort due to the early starts and concrete floors, but I managed it.
