guys, i know that in these circumstances, hobbies and other such activities pale into insignificance meaning theres probably few members posting, but i just wanted to wish the forum and your extended families all the best while we all work our way through this....whether or not you may think its overkill, exaggeration or totally totally proportionate in the actions taken,,i hope the effects on all of are as limited as possible...
cheers

I think mentally we are very lucky to have a hobby like this, I know for myself when I'm building the shit of everyday life disappears for a bit Smile

Important to distract yourself from the anxiety and the fears-even if you can do it for an hour or so it's better than not doing it at all. I know in the next few weeks I'll be back building again.

good points lads...
as with many i expect, my 1:1 car, my garden and my garage have never been cleaner...was wondering how you guys puttting your days in if/when not model building? ive come across some boxes of car mags from 90s when i was wrecking around the town in my stage 1 converted xr3i!!!!  loads of fastford, performance ford, kitcar and car&car conversions mags, thought i had disposed of them but appartently not lol!!
found a couple of nice nostlagic pics i took of me with malcolm wilson and stephen finlay in kennedys ford of ballymena, in pilot cossie days, another one of ari and another one of eddie irvine where he signed my ferrari book...happy times indeed... Smile

Im luckier than most and my job has just moved to working from home. While it can be difficult to run a Service Desk remotely, at least there has been no impact to hours and nobody laid off, the benifit to being an essential team in a multi national.

Working from home has its perks, no longer a 30min commute each way, outta bed, into the shower and start work in 15mins is nice. Having lunch and dinner with the family is nice too. Have extra tjme in the day to do other stuff so makjng some progress on the models ive got with me that are not in storage.

Downside is we are renting at the moment due to doing a major extention on the house. Construction has stopped now so every week they are off the site is costing us more and more money in rent. Had hoped to be back by mid july but thats off the cards now. Also have baby number 2 due in 2 weeks, and ckncerned abiut herself being in hispital during all if this, aswell as not being able to visit her. So overall its got its good and bad points
