Thank you.Not good at all Jim. I hope you manage. As you say some/many on here (me included) are retired and in the main I dare to suggest comfortably off.
There must be tens of thousands (maybe more) like you and your wife. Simply best wishes !
The only upset if that the government cannot do more.
I am quite mentally prepared for the economic fallout which will come.
More Taxes and higher prices being the obvious ones.
I also suggest all holiday related costs will balloon and maybe incur extra taxation.
Thankfully we are pretty good and mentally aware and always able to cope in a crisis. We are a spontaneous small family with never a fixed diary/agenda. As an example 2 years ago my 91 year old aunt suffered a big stroke and was admitted to hospital. My brother; who lives in Reading and is very OCD on things (dotting i's and crossing t's) called to tell me mid-afternoon and said he'd go to the hospital the following morning once he worked out what he was doing and they'd settled her in, but whilst he was on phone my wife had already packed an overnight bag and some food and put in my car. After a few choice words to my older brother about the need for someone to be there I was on the 5 hour drive to Bristol arriving early evening at the hospital where I stayed for 5 hours! She did survive!!!
