Re: One year ago today, to the hour.

Thanks Olive and yes where has that time gone? I followed your posts on the struggles you had to get back home and again it was all part of the surreal blur. Truly hoping you get to travel more very shortly and get the house on the market and sold.....then pastures new. This can't go on forever, peo...

Re: Coronavirus

As more people are tested then more positives will be recorded, however it's nailed on we'll suffer once again this Autumn and winter whatever happens.

One year ago today, to the hour.

Where's that gone? At this very moment we were sliding our house keys across the desk as a cheque was slid our way as we completed the house sale at the Notary office in Velez Malaga. We all shook hands and went ours separate ways, we stopped for an ice cream on the way to the car then set off at 2....

Re: Massive Explosion in Lebanon

Shock wave was truly nuclear looking.......that's what did the damage.

Last reports I saw last night was it was a 6 year old acid storage unit that had gone up. Haven't yet checked today what they are saying now.

Re: Coronavirus

That's a pain re. the tickets. Surely a quick note explaining the pandemic has affected routines around the world will make them see you had no chance of paying the fines let alone receiving them in the circumstances. I read the CEO's report every week on Brittany Ferries, I really feel for that blo...

Re: Coronavirus

My other fear Katy is of the many who will indeed test positive, be it asymptomatic or not their card is marked. If they die in any circumstance whatsoever Covid will be named as a factor. And so it will go on.

Re: Coronavirus

Hope everything goes perfect for your remaining stay Lavanda and you have a great time. I also hope no more goal posts change and that you get back to your house with no unneeded stress or worry.

Re: Coronavirus

That's a massive point the OH brought to my attention yesterday, how many will realise it?

Re: Coronavirus

The point is disregarding the time of year, strain of flu or any other parameter more people have died on a year to year basis from flu than have died from Covid, yet no lockdown or restrictions to prevent it. Looking at other countries records now and it seems a similar trend elsewhere.

Re: Coronavirus

Staggering to read this from not even 2 years ago, 50,000 deaths from flu in the UK in 2018 and no lockdown or mask wearing, shattered lives and economies. What is the difference now? Article partly behind the paywall but the first paragraphs with the numbers are visible......and true. https://www.t...

Just been for a walk and noticed some hedgerows are now being used as mask dispensers. What a clever idea.

Re: Travel to the UK

Good account of your trip Lavanda. Plus a good account of your stance and beliefs about all of this. In a way the way you described your trip it sounded brilliant and far less streesful than normal.

Re: Travel to the UK

Lavanda, don't forget when you are in the UK. You can go to the crowded Gym and work out with the rest of them for as long as you like and you'll not need your mask. Go in to the local empty shop for your pint of milk and you'll have to wear it or you'll be £100 lighter.

Re: Travel to the UK

Just brilliant if you're only going for 14 days isn't it? I'd not worry too much though as nobody will be policing it.

Hence the need for masks, you're a sitting target without one, far easier to police and collect the fines.

Re: Coronavirus

Interesting you say that Sid, we are based in between Manchester and Liverpool John Lennon airports and despite the reports of thousands of tourists gleefully off on their jollies the skies are still deserted, and I mean deserted. These two airports would have the skies full usually. Looking out now...
