    Not sure what the other one was. Pretty sure it wasn't St Andrews, as we all decided it was like diving in Milk

    St Andrews is a bit like that as it is a chalk pit after all -- one of the biggest problems with Holborough before they effectively closed. St Andrews is cold too due to the depth and volume of the water.

    Hopefully no issues with getting your money back.

    The levels of paranoia about this is getting out of hand! There's sod all one can do about it, so why worry!

    Going to ruin a lot of small traders.

    Yep, frustrating. Supposed to be off to Norway too and then Mexico, plus a few trips to France.

    Even though Boris and his government are cunts, I agree with their lack of action in some respects.

    Madrid in May isn't looking too likely either. :(

    Think I'll be sailing to Oostende for the festival in May. Even if there's no festival I'd still go for some decent food... even if that has to be purchased from the local Del Haise and cooked myself.

    No rebreather for me yet.

    Have you thought about rejoining your PADI club for some like-minded dive buddies??

    That trip to Ostend sounds fun, hopefully it’ll still go ahead.

    Went to see the consultant for what I'd hoped to be the last time yesterday to get signed off fit to dive. Unfortunately he had other ideas and wants me to have been symptom free for 6 months post surgery, which means no diving until towards the end of may.

    Perfectly understandable, but frustrating. It's going to be year since my last dive next month. Bugger!

    Not good, but at least you can be completely confident I suppose.

    What's "no diving"? Does a little pool or shallow lake dive count?

    No diving means just that, none at all. The risk is tiny, especially since the op, but if I have an attack of AF in the water I seriously dont rate my chances of making it out unaided. Dont think it's fair to inflict that on anybody I might be diving with even though I feel absolutely fine.

    Out in Cancun at the moment: my contacts tell me that cenotes are being closed (officially) and that ocean diving is being shut down for a couple of weeks.
    (Schools closing as from Friday, and any gatherings of more than 5000 people banned as from Monday)

    Your bigger challenge will be getting back home given the state of aviation.

    Strange times.

    What’s the fucking point in these bullshit OTP codes of the banks and CC providers still won’t let the transaction go ahead due to potential ‘fraud’?

    Just trying to ‘stockpile’ entertainment essentials in case I’m stuck at home, assuming we still have electricity.

    perhaps they suspect one of you is a crook and are protecting the real you from the dodgy you?
