Project 365 2021: Week Eighteen

Poole

Not much to report this week. We thought Bank Holiday would be busy, but the weather wasn’t playing ball so most people stayed at home. Infection rates continue to fall in England, Wales and Scotland and remained level in Northern Ireland. The government have decided not to give the Oxford vaccine to under 40’s now because of the risk of blood clots. I have my second one next week, but apparently the risk is less with a second dose. Here… Continue Reading “Project 365 2021: Week Eighteen”

This week there has been two test raves in Liverpool, with 3,000 people getting to visit with no social distancing and no masks as an experiement. All had to have a negative test before hand and all will be tested 5 days after the event. Fingers crossed it will be good news for events happening in the summer.

Project 365 2021: Week Fourteen

St-Aldhelms-Chapel

Our moods have definitely lifted since restrictions started to ease last week and although we have stuck to our county, we have explored slightly farther afield. On Friday we headed to Lyme Regis to see my Dad, where we found out that Prince Philip has sadly passed away at the age of 99. My Dad told us of the time he met him, when he unofficially toured a ship my dad was working on when the Royal Yacht Britannia moored… Continue Reading “Project 365 2021: Week Fourteen”
