- Easing of Scottish lockdown
We’re supposed to be swimming later and our usual spot is Morlich. I’ve been sussing out a few others but Vaa car park is rammed and even lovely Lochindorb is bereft of a parking space. Currently at Findhorn where it’s also overwhelmed.
There’s definitely an irony at being up here in the Highlands and unable to find anywhere quiet.Posted 4 days ago
I thought that Morlich link of beamer’s was photoshopped,hope they all tidy up.Posted 4 days ago
TBH it doesn’t look bad once folk leave for the day. It’s the overnight shenanigans that are the problem.
Meanwhile, 29C here in Findhorn.Posted 4 days ago
We went to Cullen this morning, wasn’t too bad at 10am when we arrived and spent a few hours at the far end. By lunchtime, it was backed up from the car park where they would wait 20 minutes to drive down and around a full car park and leave – the old duffers trying to get into the golf club car park were besides themselvesPosted 4 days ago
School hols + good weather + fear of another lockdown = everyone out!Posted 4 days ago

Good to see Scotland’s less individualistic society paying dividends.
Looks like we’re getting a T&T app now too, using the Google/Apple model and based on the Irish one.Posted 4 days ago
Drove to Skye today and slowest busiest trip I’ve ever done. On the plus side no one parked at Guiness Pool on the Etive while triple falls was rammed. Did have to clear some litter but pleasant overall and only busyness was a squad of kayakers passing through. Good entertainment with a pinned boat on right angle as well.Posted 4 days ago
Lockdown definitely feeling over. Coire a Ghrunnda tomorrow then fight crowds again at Fairy Pools Sunday. I know I’m part of the problem but kinda consider myself local.
Going to aviemore on Sunday. Feels all very nomal and everything seems open.Posted 4 days ago
I went to my class today. Spent the day sorting posters, scrap paper and glue stick.Posted 4 days ago
Poah; always have an emergency stash because of nefarious colleagues. And don’t give stuff away,trade it.Posted 3 days ago
Been in North Wales for the last week and can honestly say I’m glad I’m heading back up the road tomorrow. I’ve been in the Conwy area and the locals are doing their best but the holiday makers are a ffing menace, thick as mince and entitled to boot. Little social distancing going on and virtually zero masks anywhere. I hate to think what this place will be like come the 3rd when everything opens up again.Posted 3 days ago
Is the Scottish test and trace app a wholly distinct thing from the English one.
Actually, wrong question, will those arseholes in Downing Street be able to get hold of our data?Posted 3 days ago
This model doesn’t hold our data centrally like the failed Boris one would have.Posted 3 days ago
So far as I know Scottish Govt have opted for the Google /Apple app.Posted 3 days ago

It’s the same as is already being used in RoI and is also being developed for NI.Posted 3 days ago

I wouldnt worry about that as this government has given Palintir access to our NHS data anywayPosted 3 days ago
I think that will only be the english data.
Scottish NHS being a completely separate body with totally stand alone records and testing for covidPosted 3 days ago

Well I have just booked a flight from Ireland to Scotland to visit my parents this Saturday, fingers crossed things stay as they are and don’t lock down so I can actually travel. Will be first time I have seen them since last year, can I hug them🤣Posted 2 days ago
Just had a quick look through my classes results. Overall they seem quite reasonable to me.Posted 21 hours ago
Interesting and a bit disturbing to see how many cases are linked to one venue on one night. (especially as they claim they were complying with the procedures.Posted 16 hours ago
It’s all going a bit mental in Aberdeen just now, lots of bars in self imposed shut down.
Seeing some of the pics of the lack of any social distancing and lack face coverings its hardly surprising.Posted 15 hours ago
the rumour mill is in full swing at work about the venues involved. if any of the stories being thrown about are remotely true it’s going to be a lot worse.Posted 12 hours ago
Starting to get a bit nervous about the return to work as a teacher. Not so much for myself but the wider picture. Whatever measures they say are in place with no distancing, masks optional and inadequate handwashing facilities it really just looks like situation normal. The return seems to be based on the idea that school pupils don’t transmit so much but whilst some of the science supports that some doesn’t. Guess it’s just a case of suck it and see.Posted 11 hours ago
The only way we are going to get moving is to shut boozersPosted 11 hours ago

That’s looking increasingly likely I think.Posted 11 hours ago

Has your school not given out guidelines about distancing from pupils? I’m guessing we will still have to keep out distance but that is going to be an issue for some parts of the lesson especially if you are a practical class.Posted 9 hours ago
The guidelines on distancing and protection are pretty vague and pretty much unworkable.For all the early noise from Swinney about class size, I/you will have 28 first years in a room that we are meant to be able to stay 2m from…aye right. We are doing a staggered return the first week,masks are optional as is uniform to get PE going. Tech and sciences are going to be hard to get going, ours have been recording videos of themselves demonstrating. It is going to be a strange new world for everybody.Posted 3 hours ago
Kids here are only in one day of the first week, daughter delighted 😁Posted 2 hours ago
