@bryony_gordon I think we're united in misery. But that's about it. @RobertCorp How about meeting at a NT halfway between you? Stay outdoors, keep distance.I could cry. In fact, I might. #ukquarantine #COVID__19 #SaveTravel https://t.co/8cMqo42jBu @JulieOwenMoylan I am in. @louisetickle Really? We just had two weeks stuck at home. Back at school tomorrow. A looooong fortnight. @MarionETodd @abigailemann Netflix. @FunmiOlutoye You can't. But hopefully, hotel owners etc will feel they have to cancel bookings. It's a start, I suppose.
