  1. Those comments referred to last Tuesday and there have been no announcements since so I won't hold my breath but with P&O anything could happen. Princess have cancelled up to 15th December but that was because of the high Covid numbers in the USA. I just checked on a online TA site and they have no P&O cruises listed until April 2021.
  2. I am glad I am not the only person who is a bit apprehensive about eating and drinking out. I have got to get brave because I had an invitation this morning to go to a very nice local restaurant on the 20th. It will be my first meal out since February. We did go next door on Saturday for a barbecue but there were only 6 of us and we were socially distanced in the fresh air at 2 metres between each couple.
  3. We met Liz Dawn ( Vera Duckworth ) on Queen Mary 2. Liz Dawn was a lovely person, she and her husband came and sat with us in a bar and chatted for quite a while. We also saw Jonathon Wilkes being completely obnoxious to a waiter in the Azura glasshouse. On Azura Strictly Come Dancing cruise we met Craig Revel-Horwood and he was lovely.
  4. Reports in the press here in UK today say that our government have secured several deals for vaccines : GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi Pasteur -60million doses AstraZenica/Oxford University - 100 million doses Pfizer and BioNTech - 30 million doses Valneva - 60 million doses The reason is for this is that by going with 4 different manufacturers they hope that at least 1 will be successful. No-one knows which if any will be successful.
  5. I have never spent much time in the atrium but when I have passed through I have noticed that quite a lot of people seem to sit there ( people watching possibly ). I prefer somewhere quieter like our balcony.
  6. We have done a round Britain cruise on Princess a number of years ago and really enjoyed it. Yesterday I got a call from our cruise consultant at Princess who was ringing to tell us about an offer on Crown Princess Round Britain cruises for next year. We are looking on the bright side and hoping that cruising will have resumed by next summer so we have taken up the offer. If things still look dodgy when we have to pay the balance we will cancel and just lose the £100 deposit of we cannot move it of take FCC.
  7. I can't believe the stupidity of some people, there are now reports of covid cases in Stone (just a few miles from us) linked to a few evenings 2 weeks ago when crowds packed pubs and beer gardens in the town, around 600 people have been tested after 11 confirmed cases. Why would you go into a pub that was already packed and if it was empty when you went in why would you stay when it started to get crowded ? do these people think that they have some kind of immunity ?
  8. One of our overnight visitors tonight. He is the world's gentler most obedient dog unlike his 10 year old girl companion lol.
  9. I am so sorry to hear about your aunt, life is so difficult at the moment. I am glad you are feeling a bit better. You will enjoy Warners even though it isn't a cruise. I went for 4 days to Warners Bodelwyddan Castle last year with a group of friends (No husbands allowed). It was my first visit to Warners but it won't be the last.
  10. I assumed that they meant that their businesses couldn't manage without them for unplanned time off because most businesses don't allow too many of their employees to take holidays at the same time. It must be a nightmare for businesses when employees are taking 4 weeks instead of their planned 2 weeks and possibly overlapping with other employees. Occasionally they do have someone off I'll while someone else is on holiday so they have to manage under that circumstance.
  11. Having been stuck on the M42 many years ago worrying about getting to the ship on time we now always spend the night before the cruise in or near to Southampton. We like to have new cruisers in front of us because we have found that they are more likely to stop for the photographers so we can easily dodge them and head to the higher tier lunch. 😁😁
  12. Off to meet my friends this afternoon for the first get together since February. There will only be 5 of us today because the 6th is currently in 2 weeks isolation in preparation for an operation. Really looking forward to it because we are having it at the home of the one who will be 70 today so it will be a celebration although not quite the same as our usual get togethers, 3 of us have had birthdays during lockdown so we are we are all considering it as our birthday celebrations too 🎂🎂
  13. Avril, this is exactly why we will not be going to the theatre or cinema in the near future. I did hear that there will only be alternate rows used and that not all seats on a given row will be used but as it is inside I still do not feel that it will be safe.
  14. I popped into Tesco today and I only saw one person who was not wearing a face covering of some sort. The message seems to have got through to the majority.
