We've got friends in France we'd like to see and a winter holiday in the sunny Canaries would be smashing but not this year. Hopefully sometime but we've wonderful places to visit just around home until then.
Mark Drakeford has asked the people of Wales not to go abroad - even to green list countries. He's also made it clear he'll lockdown again and close the border to England if need be. He comes over like a headmaster with quiet authority. I think the journalists live in fear here of being made to write 200 times "I must not ask stupid questions that have already been covered in the briefing" :)

I wish that was the rule for all of them  :lol:  I might even be able to start watching the news again  ::)

As for travel restrictions,  I am afraid they have always been open to abuse, if you are prepared to lie and cheat.   We had someone at work last year come back from a red country via a green one.   They got stopped by border patrol here in the UK who were speaking to  everyone on the flight.  Maybe they pegged it as a connecting one likely to containing rule dodgers.  Anyway a few stern questions got the truth out of them and they were told in no uncertain terms they had to isolate. 

The vast majority of people have done their best to act responsibly throughout all of this and have been incredibly tolerant of huge amounts of government interference in our daily lives.  It only takes a few idiots though ...  It is pure selfishness, but then humans are quite good at that at times.

Just had my text to book my second vaccination, three weeks early.
So booked in for next week.
As was mentioned yesterday with the 8 weeks now rather than 12 weeks gap change.
That will be a 9 week gap for me.

Well said, News!

Mind you, the last 'news' (not you Dear), we listened to was important, but now the Duke's been and gone, we needn't bother for ages!

I do like, however, seeing chums in the village, and not having to answer "yes, we have had the ****** ******* jabs"!

Here in Wales over 60% of the 30-39 group have had their vaccination and over 40% of the 18-29 group. The rest of the adults are in the 80% + range. So the question may be better posed as 'do you know anyone who hasn't had their jab?'

Students at Bournemouth have all been offered to queue for a jab.   So many turned out, which was wonderful.  Except after a few were done the rest were turned away.    Mrs Bouquet

Got my letter yesterday for appointment next Thursday for my 2nd one 😊, I donít think thereís ever been such delight in getting jabbed, maybe only beaten by when they started with tetanus,polio & diphtheria, that must have be revolutionary

The TB one made all the difference where I used to live in East London. We had a big TB hospital, where you could see people in beds on the tiers of outside balconies. Within a few years of people being vaccinated it was closed  :)

Had my first one midday today. Having to drive to Sandown Park (26 miles) was a pain but once there it was very well organised, from the parking to being guided through. Normally I am nervous when about to be jabbed because needles frequently hurt far more than they should (the worst felt like I'd been stabbed). The lady jabbing me seemed to know what she was doing, it was one of the least painful jabs I'd ever had, just felt like a little scratch. Felt fatigue and had a hot flush shortly after but it eased after 10 minutes.

Long discussion with 11 year old granddaughter over jabs for kids. 

She has insisted on wearing a mask since the start because  'the more people that do the sooner she can have as many hugs as she wants'.  She thinks everyone should have a jab before they start secondary school which means this summer/autumn for her.  Her plan is for the first one to be done before the end of the summer term and the second on the first day of the autumn term.  In her mind it makes perfect sense.

She sounds like a very sensible child to me. From what we know of the virus, the 12 to 18 group would be sitting there as a reservoir unless they too are protected.

Unfortunately in Georgia we only have about 30% fully vaccinated  :dry:
Please stay safe!  Wear a mask, and observe social distancing!

That is disgraceful for a country like the USA with no vaccine supply problem.

Now that 'variants' have become a political football, the issue is not helped over here, so I suppose it'll be much worse in larger countries.

Nobody seems to consider that such 'variants' might be an easier, less unpleasant virus. I'm just glad we haven't had flu this year, because that really does hurt! If they add a covid jab to the normal Autumn list, I'll be first in the queue (actually Mrs Growster will, but that's chivalry for you)!
