  1. That really is awful. Something that gets me as well is when people are wearing their mask correctly but then lower it to speak to the shopkeeper! I do think its good though that quite often you will hear announcements over tanoys (shopping centre and train stations) to state that masks should cover nose and chin.It doesn't always make a difference but at least if people realise they are wearing it incorrectly it may help
  2. Thank you Jane for all you are doing.When your vaccine hub closes in July you will have more time to focus on your up coming cruises! It sounds as though you are an exceptional practice manager.I don't even know who ours is though I'm sure he or she does a great job. 🙂 🙂
  3. Yesterday I had a good day and met some friends.The only part my hubby didn't like was that it involved buying a dress!!
  4. Thank you for all you are doing.Formby, where my Mum lives has seen a rise in the Indian varient too and there have been mobile testing units and extra vaccination sessions which hopefully will stop the spread.I think its great that so many people are willing to help fight covid whether paid or volunteers, medics or organisational help.🙂
  5. I like big ships, little ships, classic ships and glitzy ships- infact most types of ships if I'm sailing on them! I like certain aspects of most of the ships I have sailed on and not so keen on other aspects. I think its great that there is a good choice to suit all tastes. Wouldn't it be boring if we all liked the same thing? Can't wait until my next cruise!
  6. Having got our passports out ready to download the NHS App I noticed that my hubbys passport photo on main page is in colour whereas mine is in black and white.Although we both applied for new passports the same evening, hubbys went to one passport office and he received the old colour passport ' mine went to a different office and I received one of the new blue passports (hubby was quite envious!!)Just wondering if all the new passports have black and white photos or if its because they had problems accepting my photo due to 'shading' issues (probably black circles, wrinkles and age spots!)
  7. That was a quick 7 days.Just had an email to say I have passed their checks!
  8. Based on what I had read above hubby and I both decided to download NHS app using security password log in. Surprise surprise hubby didn't have to upload photo or scan passport etc.I had to take a photo of my passport then do a face scan which came back with the advice that my face didn't match!(It is a new passport!)Did the scan again and got a message that it would be checked but may take up to 7 days! At least we have now got the App
  9. Wish I had accepted the invite🙁 Just others commenting about the ceremony and the photos of Iona have put me in the mood for cruising.Whilst in Devon we saw several cruise ships including Arcadia off the Torbay and Teignmouth coast. Looking forward to our cruise in September though like others I am tempted to book a mini cruise for July or August
  10. So pleased to see you back posting and that you now have a cruise to look forward to.Sorry to hear you haven't been well.Take care .We just need Harry and Selbourne to post and with Iona arriving today it will have really cheered people up
  11. Wonderful to see you posting again Andy.I do hope that you and Michelle are well.
  12. I hope your grandson is ok and that you all sleep well
  13. We have been to see our daughter and grandsons locally today which has been nice.Supposed to be going to Southport next week to keep an eye on my Mum whilst my sister and her family are away.However Formby (where my Mum lives) was on BBC news last night as its one of the areas to have seen a steep rise in the Indian varient of covid in the last few weeks.My Mum now doesn't want us to come incase we take it back to Chesterfield! Trying to weigh up whether it is better for us to stay put and Mum not to have to worry or go (to help me not to worry about Mum)but have Mum fretting whilst we are the

    NHS App

    I hope that is the case when I try and download the NHS App (Our surgery uses systemonline) I had real difficulty getting my passport photo approved when I applied for a new passport last year.Hubbys photo was accepted straight away (trust him to be photogenic!)Even though my photo was taken at the same time/same background it kept being rejected .Successfully submitted one the following day to find that one that had been rejected too at a later stage.Thought I would have to get a medical note to explain the dark circles etc!!
  15. Thank you for being a 'jabber'.Enjoy that bottle of fizz
  16. We have done similar for the PI s in Southampton and even today I have noticed that a pi that we have booked for June in Kendal has been reduced in price so will cancel and re book
  17. Enjoy Saundersfoot- a lovely part of the world.Hopefully you will have less rain than we have had during our week in Devon ( We have still had an enjoyable time
  18. I don't take anything if it is provided as it means less to pack/unpack etc.I still take the kitchen sink, mainly dresses,shoes and handbags but hate unpacking so if something is in the cabin, I use it and quite like The White Company toiletries provided
  19. Fantastic news,It must be a huge relief to you.Enjoy the Cava and hope your 2nd jab goes well tomorrow.
  20. Thank you.We visited Torquay (and Babbacombe) a couple of years ago.We are staying at an apartment in Totnes that my sister and her husband stayed in last week and they say it is lovely.I am just looking forward to seeing the sea!!Hope to go to Dartmouth and Kingswear again and perhaps Salcombe
  21. I have printed off the section showing each vaccination
  22. I hope everyone who has fallen recently continues to improve and those who have had 2nd jabs have no side effects.My hubby has volunteered to help direct people at the Vaccination centre (our local theatre) and during his first shift today he saw 3 people faint all quite big men!!A couple of them said they were feeling faint first but another just fell on the floor from his chair without warning! Won't be on the CC boards much next week as we are travelling to Devon tomorrow for a weeks holiday!Hoping to see a cruise ship or 2 if they are venturing out to the Torbay area.
  23. Hope you sleep well and no headache in the morning.
  24. Another virtual hug from me (sorry if it sets you off again-but as they say 'better out than in')Take Care x
