I stayed in this morning to do some writing on my new Sci-fi novel, I managed to get a page or two completed.
The sun can out at lunchtime and we went for a walk along the beck. It was beautiful and so warm I regretted taking a jacket.
The orchids were just popping out of the grass and we found a beautiful blue heron and two egrets down at the nature reserve. We were going to go back to catch the starling murmuration but the rugby’s on!! I can’t miss that.
Out in Coronaland where Brexit is stirring up shit things are going as usual – up and down. The vaccine is rolling out with 50% of vulnerable adults now vaccinated. Consequently the death-rate is falling dramatically – only a hundred deaths yesterday. Not as good over on the continent where they are being much too slow and are suffering a third wave. There is a lot of bad feeling being stirred up with accusations of us hogging the vaccine. Who knows? Looks to me as if the EU has been too slow at ordering it, that the UK bought it up quick, and the whole silly business has been stirred up by this politically motivated business against the AstraZeneca. There is such a hostile atmosphere because of the way the UK has behaved it is causing irrational behaviour.
I can understand that.
Our incompetent twat of a PM and his arrogant bunch of nationalist extremists drive me mad too!
We are being told not to go to europe this year on holiday. Travel to Greece is being blamed for a spike in cases. There is said to be a number of unknown variants on the continent that the vaccine might be ineffective against. Who knows? They are worried about people bringing them back in.
The sooner the whole world is vaccinated the better!!
I still have not heard about my second shot – most probably in four weeks time! That’ll be OK. I’m looking forward to a more normal summer. The infections rates here are falling fast. With summer on its way even Dido Harding, with £37 billion behind here, can surely isolate and mop up the hotspots?? Maybe not.
Anyway – Stay safe!!
