Quick update

I didn't mention it here previously but our 14 year-old granddaughter tested positive for covid on Monday. She is doing OK and Loki the dog is keeping her company while she rests quietly at home.

Today I texted our daughter to see how E was and she texted back to say that now she and our son-in-law have it. It's all very well saying that schools must be kept open at all costs, but there are now three people at home ill because of that policy.

Both our daughter and son-in-law are double-jabbed, so they should only be mild cases and less chance of long-covid, but it's not helping to curb the spread. And of course you have to wait to the very end of the BBC news to get a very brief mention of number of cases and how many have died. Otherwise they're pretending we're back to normal.

I'm also annoyed that after a sudden and spectacular drop in the number of cases in our county, the level has shot up again. I suspect it's students going back to college and university so not actually local to me, but still frustrating.

In other news, we ventured out to have lunch at a local pub. We haven't had a meal cooked by anyone other than myself since 1 January 2020. The pub has tables outside. so I only had to go inside to place the order and people were keeping their distance and wearing masks, as is still required in Wales. The food was merely ok, though G's baked potato with spicy chill beans and salad was possibly nicer than my fish and chips, but it was a lovely change to be eating out and the view from the outdoor tables is beautiful.

Photo taken some years ago. It wasn't as sunny or as busy today, but it shows the pub and the location.

We did drive to the pub, but once I got home I walked to the supermarket on the other side of town to get ingredients to make Christmas puddings tomorrow. Sadly, as I passed the garage I saw that they had no diesel, so we won't be going anywhere further afield until the supplies are more reliable.
