On the roof they won’t Radfordred. But they were partying, go to Nottinghamshire Live and see what the residents of Lenton are saying about the amount of partying going on there and the number police have had to break up. That is what will spread it. Common sense needs to prevail among a small minority.
I have no quarrel with the demonstrators at all, the bill they are demonstrating against isn’t good. As to getting back to normal I can’t wait hope it is sooner rather than later.

On the roof RR they are not going to infect you but by mixing anywhere, including the roof, they are more likely to keep the asymptomatic numbers up. Imagine one infected person goes on the roof, many could come down and help the spread.

 

I know you've been lucky so far and hope you stay that way but it's rather naive  to think gatherings, including protests, cannot contribute to the spread of infection.

My arms hurting after yesterday's Appletizer jab. Had a look but can't see owt,  no swelling or redness, but it feels very tender. Can I assume this is a normal reaction? Didn't help losing sleep this morning. Up at 3.30 (2.30 in old money) and had a hell of a job trying to get back to sleep. 'Er indoors is just the same.

I had a sore arm with both my Pfizer shots, but just for the first day. Hubby had nothing. I guess it effects different folks, different ways.

I felt nothing at all for 48 hours. Couldn't even have identified the injection site.  Then....very sore upper arm with pain that travelled up my neck and into left shoulder. Persisted for several days, fading as time went on.  Friends who had the same jab at the same time reported flu-like symptoms, dizziness, etc. I didn't experience any of that.

BK. It’s just your body’s antibodies rushing  out to fight and overcome what they ‘see’ as an intruder in your body.   That’s good!   You may get other effects as well but just relax, take paracetamol and let your antibodies get on with their fight!  Our bodies are wonderful things (even the older ones like yours and mine!)

Just had our second AZ vaccine.  The

 Nurse asked if we’d had any side effects from the first one, so I told her about the bad headaches, shivering and shaking in bed and feeling really cold and generally grotty for about 24 hours.  She said we would probably have more of the same this time, so we’ll just have to wait and see.  At least we’ll know what it is this time.  Because we were one of the first cohorts to be done in January, the side effects weren’t being so widely published and we didn’t link what was happening to our jab until early the  next day.  As I’ve said before, I think  it’s a small price to pay to keep us out of hospital!

Can't see a lot of difference between those idiots and those littering the place with flowers as a tribute, we still have to pay the council to clear up.

Stood at the Crown Island crossing, a bloke was already waiting, he was fully masked up out in the fresh air, he look physically petrified I had come within 5 foot of him, he waited until I had crossed, will this madness ever end :crazy:

Some people might seem over cautious but it is the take up of injections and the physical distancing which are having a material effect on the reduced spread of the virus. I think the wearing of masks, certainly in shops, is the reason why very few people have had the common cold in recent months.

I realised a few months ago that I'd had very little in the way of colds and sniffles during the last year. It must be due partly to mask-wearing, and also the fact the many people haven't been in close proximity to many other people for a long time.

Perhaps he was classed as “clinically vulnerable” which is why he was being extra cautious?

Nothing wrong in being ‘extra cautious’. It’s those who show a cavalier attitude to the virus that cause the spread. Certainly in our village I see people chatting to neighbours but, without exception, they respect the two metre guidance. The only high rates of infection in our wider district have been at Lowdham Grange prison and on the other side of the Trent at Whatton  prison. Obviously there there are problems in keeping a social distance in these institutions.

Second jab on the 15th...

 

A relative has just asked if you work from home does it affect council tax, can you claim the costs against income tax and does it affect the house insurance? 

 

I don't know the answers, does anyone here know?

Home might be classed as business premises and become a reason to increase charges. 

 

There are no business rates for normal home working where the house is not part of a business premises. You can’t claim home working expenses against tax. It may be prudent to discuss home working with ones household insurers but I doubt they will increase the premium.

Both got our second jabs on the 15th. I have the Astra at 9.50am and Chris the Pfizer at 4.55pm, both at same place. I asked why we couldn't have the jabs at same time. It seems they are doing the Astra in the morning and Pfizer in the afternoon. Good job we live within walking distance, we can have some exercise thrown in.

The Revenue state that you cannot claim tax relief if you choose to work from home. However if you are compelled to do so because of the current situation then there is a system for claiming reliefs.

Said relative has taken a job with Purple Bricks. Their business model means everyone apart from the HQ must work from home, to that end she has turned the utility room into an office, nothing to do with the pandemic.

That’s a moot point and should be queried with the Revenue. The ‘working from home allowances’ were specifically put in to deal with the pandemic. I was not aware of it until RR drew my attention to it. Some employers are giving the special allowances through PAYE making it unnecessary for the taxpayer to make a claim. Turning one room into an office will not make them liable for business rates but if you chose to work from home you could not ordinarily claim partial household expenses against tax.

Looks like vaccine supply is outstripping demand at the moment, probably because they stopped doing 1st dose during April.  Couple of local sites saying next available slot is right now.  Four more say tomorrow morning.  I am also hearing more cases of 2nd dose being pulled forwards, sometimes by several weeks.
