Doesn't the ferry to the Scilly Isles have a flat bottom, specially designed to induce sea-sickness in grockles ?

Wish I had a flat bottom.

That wasn't forecast, but the afternoon should be dry...

...we'll see.

Dry and warm(ish) but cloudy today. Stinking hot tomorrow. Thunderstorm and cool on Saturday.
We have half a lawn now (they didn't order enough turf despite coming and measuring it, back Saturday to finish the job) so I am fully expecting a heatwave for the next few weeks to run up my water bill and still kill of the grass.

Doesn't look like we will be going anywhere anytime soon, given the latest figures .

Things don't look good all around, We've a short break in Scotland booked for early September, but as things look they may close the order (again!)

As for a break in France....

I'm still waiting to hear the outcome of the meeting that's still going on to decide if Leicester (specifically Oadby) is going to be released from lockdown. I'm going stir crazy

Holiday to Spain that was booked is off the cards now.
However it looks as though we’re going for a mini staycation in Dorset instead!

Staycation??? The world consists of Dorset and foreign. But being friendly and welcoming folk, we don't have passport checks at the county border - yet!!!

Staying anywhere in particular? You're very welcome, wherever it is.

PS: Please don't bring any nasty viruses with you - we're near the bottom of the league table and proud of it!

Haha, well I hope you can tolerate us foreigners from Wales! Lock up your wives, daughters... and sheep...
I think it's going to be Thorncombe Farm but I'm not absolutely certain...
Of course not, we're all a sensible bunch so if anyone is presenting ANY symptoms whatsoever we'll probably call it off altogether!

From the Grauniad this morning:
Quote:
Matt Hancock also confirmed that households in the areas of the north of England affected by the additional lockdown measure cannot visit each other at home – but they can visit households outside the affected areas as long as they observe social distancing.

so you can't get out of it. Nice try though

Problem is the guidelines are as clear as Guiness...

...we can move out of area, but not meet at a house, which is where we need to be to do the decking...

Oh for last summer..

Who's going to stop you though? Go do your decking and enjoy your time with Honesty! You will be outside most of the time anyway.

Another thought. When did staycation (horrible word that it is) come to mean a holiday in your home country?
I always understood it to mean staying in your own home for your holiday, staying put. If it means staying in your home country then millions do that annually anyway. It isn't anything unusual.

Anyway for those who are off on their hols I hope you have a good time.
