Well, been an exciting evening, e-mail from Blueair, 3 hours ago, Romania locked off all borders to keep the thing away, all flights grounded as from Friday. Blueair trying to fit me in, 5 flights left to go out to different cities in Romania. As I am a solo flyer, maybe I will get lucky. Been e-mailing, phoning, filling in on line request forms. can do no more now,:mad: just have to wait, suck it and see. Large medicinal potion coming up sir

No help from Blueair, buttt, after being on the puta till 0200 then up again at 5 and scrabbling around, finally managed to get a cancellation at 0800, cost me 400 squid confirmed booking, flying out tomorrow { allegedly ) so now leaping round like a blue arsed fly, trying to get my stuff together in 2 different locations. Have to go into isolation when I get there, but got to be better than this no ending date lockdown here

Bucharest has been locked down since Monday, as you're no doubt aware Gerry, people only allowed out for emergency stuff.
I did see Hungary has eventually allowed Romanians passage to drive through on their way back home.
Keep safe

I’m now isolating for 14 days. Mrs Frank has come down with some sort of cold, although she says it doesn’t feel like a normal cold. Bit weird as I feel fine, but still have to stay at home. I still feel that I’m letting work down but they were ok with it and said I have to follow government advice. Already done a bit of decorating :)

Stay safe mate. I caught some kind of flu, started nearly 2 weeks ago, hardly been out since. I am absolutely climbing the walls. Today I reorganised and tidied my airing cupboard :D

I have just taken stock, I have 42 bottles of red, two of those are magnum size though, 6 bottles of white, 3 bottles of fizzy. 12 cans of Magners, 4 Strongbow dark fruits, 12 Kopperberg mixed berries, 16 cans (small) of Moretti and 4 bottles of Ghost ship. 4 bottles of gin, a bottle of Baileys, a bottle of port. Some Remy Martin champagne cognac, 3 different typed of vodka and a bottle of Disoranno.

I'll maybe nip to the shops in the morning...

Don't know what to suggest. Don't think either of you have enough supplies and the supermarkets have no delivery slots. Perhaps a kind neighbour?:cool:

I got an email from Naked Wines saying they were having to pause deliveries for a while, as they were swamped. Glad I stocked up!

Naked are decent aren’t they ? I don’t use them anymore as I get staff discount at M and S. What have you got in your magnums ?

Yeah I find them pretty good actually, but I shouldn't imagine there is much between most of the different companies.

I just tend to order boxes of best rated reds and the big bottles came as a freebie, not actually tried them yet. Normal size bottle of wine included for scale! As an aside, 19 crimes is an absolutely lovely Aussie red, normally about 9 quid but saw in Morrissons for 6 quid the other day.
