Just back from getting our booster . 

Appointment was 10.25 , we got there 5 mins early , only to join a snaking queue outside the community centre of about 30 people . 

Luckily weather was dry for a change.

 

Then joined another queue inside.

 

Then allocated a seat to await a booth for the injection.

 

After getting jabbed and a 10 minute sit down we left .

 

With the rest time it took just under an hour and a half ,  even with 5 separate booths jabbing away !

Arm a bit more sore today but nothing to get excited about.  No other noticeable effects.

Arrived 20 mins early at pharmacist in Brinsley, checked in, had jab and out in less than 15 minutes. No pain, shoulder a bit achy but all good so far...  thumbsup

I’m talking distances of over ten miles offered to me

 

Really? a whole 10 miles driving in a nice car, wow, the hardships country living must entail.

I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else despite the hardships and sacrifices of rural living. I look out of the bedroom window across our green meadow to the Trent Hills in the distant. No sign of human life. I’ve driven to places as far apart as Bingham and Tuxford today. I’m going to Norwell tomorrow; if anyone knows where that is.

Nearby but not on the route. Straight up the A1 through Cromwell once I've passed through Kelham and Muskham. I know Laxton well. They still have the open field farming system. I always feel a bit 'iffy' when I see the sign 'Welcome to the Holocaust Centre'.

My cousin and her husband  ran a farm (Laxton Lodge) in Norwell.  They were there for several years but are now both deceased.

One of my cousin’s daughters also lives in a barn conversion in that area. At least they lived there when I went to my cousin’s funeral as the wake was held there.  I have no idea whether she still lives there as we don’t keep in touch.  Her name is Penny and she will now be in her mid fifties.  My cousin’s name was Barbara Todd and her husband was Jack

We used to see Christopher Chittell aka Eric Pollard occasionally at Waitrose in Newark. Also Edna, the character who always wore a hat. She was very pleasant and always had a chat. I thought ‘Eric’ must be local.

@philmayfield yes I’ve known Jeremy G since we were babies as our mums were friends.  I even went on a ‘date’ to the Metropole with him once!

The last time I saw him was at Carlton Forum when we’d taken our small children swimming there.

Just joined the Covid herd. Me and missus got it last weekend. She is always masked up and I've not used one much . Julie  has bad symptoms Headaches , tiredness, loss of taste and smell I have ha no symptoms at all  ???

If it wasn't for the texts telling me to get tested I wouldn't have known I'd got it. Possibly thats why it is spreading easily at the moment.... beware !

The feebacks to this with the Govfia are a pain. Phone calls and texts every day repeating themselves now. If you are unfortunate to catch it keeps your email to yourselves and isolate.Good luck

With the UK having had 46,807 new cases yesterday and effectively "fully opened up" and 80% of the population over 12 fully vaccinated and a whopping 24% having had a booster shot.

Here in South Australia we are facing our "opening up" day, 23rd of November with a great deal of trepidation. We have had no cases for quite a while and have today just one active case in quarantine yet our stupid premier, hell bent on being a toady to Australia's worst ever prime minister is allowing our borders to open up to Victoria which has 1200+ cases a day and NSW with 250+ cases. I just don't understand the logic when we have worked so hard to be covid free and living an almost normal life, yet here we are opening the borders with vaccination rates of 76% and as low as 40% in some first nation communities. This is akin to putting the fox in charge of the hen house. I understand that we have to open up at some time and many are longing to see interstate relatives but we were led to believe that this would only be when 80% of the population was vaccinated. So much for trusting our politicians, led at the Federal level by the "Liar from the Shire" some one who sincerely believes he has never told a lie during his political career?

If 2 Omicron variants have been found, I expect there will be lots and lots of people who are also infected but just aren’t aware of it yet…
