Listening to the news today it is going to be expensive to go abroad for holidays due to the possibility of having to have tests before and after leaving the Uk and - paying for them ourselves!

I had a conversation with a nurse from our GP practice this week and they are as much in the dark as we are about the 'Passports'
Meanwhile insurance appears to be another confusion and worry

So this is it..........D day.

I like many am in dire need of a haircut, I have just drove past our local barbers and, as expected, there's a queue. As usual social distancing is not being adhered to, there's about a dozen waiting outside to go in and they are bunched together like bananas and at such close quarters I don't think I saw one wearing a mask.
I also drove past one of our pubs getting everything ready for the "off". All I can see for the next week is wall to wall vomiting as drinkers virtually go berserk {nice haircuts though}.

My opinion is the mindless are going to force us back into lockdown and I can't see any sane way of getting us from under this cloud, we are going to be lockdown ease lockdown ease probably for the next decade. Sorry to be on such a downer but I and my wife are not in the Springtime of our years, we don't know how much time there is left and we don't want to spend it being virtual prisoners.

Lets hope that the D in D day doesn't stand for d*ckheads.

I really couldn't understand when anyone would want to stay up until after midnight just to get an alcoholic drink. Are they really THAT desperate :-?

My hair appointment was booked just after it was announced when they could reopen, it feels so much better now  :)

As I feared...now lockdown is easing and people can think of "getting away" {not abroad} which means MILLIONS of holidaymakers that usually travel abroad now are wanting to holiday here, a staycation if you will, the inevitable will happen.... not enough spaces.
This is why I booked early, a few days down South in May and later in the year a few days on the Northeast coast, but there are rumours that certain people are contacting holiday sites, people it seems who think they are above everyone else, only to be told "Sorry fully booked" are then attempting to gazump guests that have already booked by, in some cases, offering DOUBLE the price to the owners in order to get in obviously at the expense of some innocent guest looking forward to their hols....THIS STINKS!!

These shenanigans may even appeal to some [unscrupulous] guest houses/hotels/camp site owners who, through no fault of their own, has lost business these past fifteen months or so but turning booking a holiday into an auction and letting people down is not on, so if you HAVE booked and are awaiting your holiday date I think it would be prudent to contact where you are staying and just double check your booking and what your getting, ask for written confirmation possibly by E mail.

Sorastro, we are still a little cautious here.
Our next ( ok first break since 2019 due to Covid) will be in June.
We have two separate weekends booked one with friends in their caravan, the other is a two night hotel stay as hubby will ( hopefully) get his 70th birthday treat from last year on the Steam Train journey.
After that it is September again in a self catering bungalow.

The biggy for us will be at the end of the year when we ( hopefully) go on the months cruise which we should have been on last year for our wedding anniversary.
I am not expecting it to be 'cruising as we know it' though!!

Apart from the above we also have numerous vouchers gifted to us one is for the Casa the others for eating places - will we be able to use them? We will the Casa as I have spoken with them but unsure about the others.
Is the Soulville Steak house re-opening does anyone know?

We've no holidays planned until next year. We'll wait and see how the land lies and, if all is well, book a last minute break if possible. If not then it'll be a week at Argate!

Alsatian, I don't blame you TBH. If we hadn't got the holidays already booked I doubt we would have bothered much this year. However the option is to transfer - so ---

That'll be May the 4th then!

I had mine last Tuesday at Stubley Lane Surgery, Dronfield.

I never had any side effects with my first (Pfizer) jab, but this time my arm was quite sore and I had a headache for a couple of days.

Small price to pay 👍

Daughter has her second Jab on may day at the Casa.
She was fine after the first one so hoping she's the same after the second - I know several people who have suffered more after the second one.
