The announcement made by NS has given us a bit of a problem as we are due in Scotland from the 4th.May for 5 weeks. If tier 3 in place it will kibosh it. We are also waiting on MrsWNs first jab, ETA 2-3 weeks, which may force a curtailment of some of it. Oh bother!yell 

Will have a group meeting tomorrow, probably over a cup of tea in bed in the morning. (Just the 2 of us, honestly).

Indications, Nellie, that sites in Wales will be open, if self contained, just after Easter so you should be fine.

Our unknown dates for the booster will probably muck up our first break so will just go with the flow nearer the time.

We're not too bothered about getting away - but will do so if lifting restrictions and farm work align.

But we're holding our collective breaths that life will be freer after 21st June - as our daughter is getting married 5 days after that. It's just a small do, but family have to travel from East Midlands as she's being married "from home" (though she left many years ago). An elderly pensioner will give her away and the flower girl will be her 8 month old granddaughter. I will probably be the only one wearing a hat (but that's what  mothers of the bride do isn't it? I have a stack of hat boxes ready to plunder).

Hope you can be there Goldie. Good luck with the hat choice. It's going to take awhile to adjust to this path out of Covid. Family are more important to us over holidays but we'll have to take a holiday to see most of ours! 

 

I got switched off CT by essential maintenance last night and have just found I've been signed in all that time...

Will it be a proper, full size hat , Goldie, or will it be one of the exotic 'Fascinator' style thingies ?? At least they don't cast shadows across the delicate visage of  " Mother-of-the-Bride " on all those photos / videos that will be unearthed on  wet winter Wednesday nights when the next but three generation is tying the knot ( If they will still be doing that in those far off times innocent )

 

Brue, It was running that slowly last night that if you had tried to log out it would only just have occurred  !

Still feeling below par, but better than I was. Just feel exhausted and nauseous most of the time now.

Sent the dog to daycare yesterday! Think she enjoyed it, came home very tired and I did a few bits about home as no walks needed. Delighted to say mud drying nicely on the local estate today, managed 3 miles myself but that'll be it until I get dinner..

Glorious sun here, actually I'll go peg out the washing in a mo. Collected the lawnmower, new lead required after dog discovered it 😱. As I was back from dig walk, I'd overdressed phew, I've got a skirt and flipflops on 😀.

Your daughter's wedding sounds lovely Goldie, will it be in your local church? Despite not living at home at the time, I got married from home 😀. Hopefully it will all be ok. Are you doing the catering? Good to know that some folk still wear hats, both I and DIL mum did fascinators. In kiwi-land they don't do formal, so saved on hat but I had decent dress, again not expected.... Groom no jacket, daughter suggested OH needn't wear a suit, went down like a lead balloon 😱. He did, our son too, but he discarded jacket rather quickly before the outdoor ceremony. It was only 32c. It was still all lovely 😀

P.S.  Goldie ~~

Just re-read your post & missed one point you made.

 This 'ere " Elderly Pensioner " wouldn't happen to be a Big Wig in the Cumbrian Farming Community would it  ??  laughing

 

Bakers2,  You'll be feeling just like us England Crikit Fans then,  Nauseous , Sick 'n Tired but we all hope you start feeling perkier by the minute, unlike what WE will do frown

Was day dreaming that i was on a ferry to France yesterday but when i came to it was only the IOW ferry undecided Spent the last 2 days also looking at UK sites as we have now binned our overthere tour.

I was surprised just how many sites have vacancies during May/June, looked mainly in the Tranquil sites web sites and adults only, have booked 1 of our old stopping grounds in Dorest for 2 weeks in May, and found what looks like a very nice site, just 17 pitches all fully svcd near Truro and at a cost which is cheaper than the club, and although you have to put down at deposit it is protected should we go into lock down again etc, really do hope we dont. So it really is a case of seek and ye shall find, cheered me up no end. laughing

Weather here gradually warming up, no need to have central heating on at full blast, walked the pooch this morning now looking at the caravan with a little more entusiasm re giving it a good clean.

The wedding will be in a local hotel - both ceremony and reception. Only 25 of us I think. As the bride and groom to be are 50 ish we’ve had no hand in the planning. But we will be having a bit of a Do at home the next day, to include a few more extended family and friends. All have to do is clean up and make sure there’s a bed for whoever needs one.
