    I dread to think how unemployment have shot up and will continue to rise we don't know what's going to happen shops business closing down ,how much damage this virus has caused.When you think about it before this kicked off we would go out for a meal meet up have a coffee with a friend go on holiday or short break until we have a vaccine and this virus goes away,I have no intention of doing what I used to enjoy,you may feel safe washing hands wearing a mask making space,its the ones that don't follow simple rules we have to avoid.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
