    A good point. You could make just as strong a case that no one should do any DIY jobs this weekend.

    Off to bed now whilst you ponder .
    I think you are within the guidance - but it is your assessment and I think that is the point.

    The Government has set guidelines because to make prescriptive and specific law would create lots of problems.

    I work from home as wholesaler/retailer of small components. I used to make a daily trip to a Parcel Drop Off shop and the Post Office.
    I'm now doing every other day.
    I'm making that trip a shopping trip as well if I need anything as the Parcel Shop is also a General Store and the Post Office is next to a Spar.

    Some might say I shouldn't work, but I supply armed service, Police, Fire, RNLI, Mountain Rescue, Coastguard and other key workers with service parts.

    So I take the guidance and work within it in a way that I feel I can completely justify.

    In terms of my exercise, I'm like Mike T. The first 5 minutes and last 5 minutes are where I'm most likely to meet others on a walk/run then I can do a couple of hours and only see people at a distance and I tend to walk routes that stay within a sensible radius of home.

    Agreed.

    Bike riding is now safer than I can ever recall because of the absence of idiot drivers rushing somewhere.

    The risk of scalding myself when boiling the kettle remains unchanged.

    It has actually increased because of more time at home.

    Finishing coffee and off to town on the bike, in actual fact the chances of me even wanting to go out a second time in a day is very remote, there is a limit to this exercise lark at my age!
    We have only visited town once so far, to pick up bags of chicken feed from the suppliers and not been near a shop. Barely seen anyone either but everyone will have their eyes open over the weekend looking out for any tourists, joy riders, campers and the like.
    Ring-a-ring-o-roses, a pocket full of posies, a-tishoo! a-tishoo! we all fall down.

    In our country lanes the only motorists now out are the idiots who overtake on blind bends. Some things never change.
