My ex using Covid19 as an excuse to stop all contact with the kids. Im not just talking the 50/50 shared access but also blocked on my sons phone from being able to contact him, blocked me from calling her to be able to contact kids, done the same to my mum and had cheek to msg me telling me she did it before she blocked me..

Back to the solicitors we go 🙄
What an absolute ****

Maybe you can catch it via talking on the phone and texting now

I can’t believe the multitude of posts on here from people who have typically been sane and thoughtful…. But now they’re out to find any lame justification to post that their ‘out of house’ activity/s is so low risk blah blah blah while pointing fingers at others they’ve seen/read about online

Face it, if you go out & could come into contact with other humans or surfaces other humans have touched then you are increasing the risk of spreading the virus. You are part of the problem, pack it in!

I agree.
Practically every expert on the planet is saying stay in and yet many just look for loopholes to go out.
It's 2/3 weeks out of your life to save your life and the sooner everyone follows the advice, the sooner we can get back to normal.

Lets hope it is just those 3 weeks.:)
I fully agree with yourself and Slab, far too much common sense though:)

The clown who required 19 members of Keswick mountain rescue to get him off the hill after falling at the weekend.
Before the lockdown I know but still an activity which any sensible person would have avoided.

The door on our washing machine chose last night to stop opening. It has been iffy for a while but a quick bang has always worked. Thanks to the power of the internet and a very nice man I watched a video on Youtube and saw how to open it for the time being with a piece of string, wrapping it around the frame of the door and pulling to lift the latch. It is going to be a tiresome few weeks doing this until we can get a repair person out though.

Most common cause is the door hinge having dropped where the door is leant on as you get up/down to the machine. Check to see if the catch enters the lock squarely in the middle, or if it hits the bottom of the lock. If it hits the bottom, open the door and holding the door firmly lift it slightly so as to tweak the hinge back in line.:)

Thanks, I will have a look. Squeezing the handle, it is a Beko machine, handle in the door, the latch is barely moving. Maybe it always did barely move and the door hinge dropping a mm or 2 is all it needed. Equally, it could be the latch mechansim I guess. Hopefully your suggestion is correct or my bodge opening method will carry on working.
