Anyway, it looks like we will still be able to stick to our original Christmas plan – unless it all changes again over the next few days. This mean that we are dividing into two family groups – Paul and I will join Alison, Ian and their three kids at their house in deepest darkest Worcestershire, whilst Mum, other two nieces, and their Dad will be together in Tewkesbury.
My Dad and his wife were originally coming to Alison's house but have now decided to stay at home – they are in Tier 3. |t is a shame but understandable. Normally we would also visit Paul’s mum in Hampshire, but this has been postponed because of travel imitations.
One bit of good news; Paul worked at the theatre last Friday!! Yippee! He went into the Everyman Theatre (Cheltenham) for two dress rehearsals for a Studio show (but being held in the Main House because of social distancing). This was so he could learn the show and be the ‘back-up’ for the studio technical manager, just in case he is ill or has to go into isolation over the Christmas run. As you know there has not been any theatre work since March (obviously) so this was a welcome boost.
However, it WILL improve; we must believe this and try to be positive.
Winchcombe Medical Centre (which is always brilliant in my opinion) has just announced that the vaccination programme will commence on the 30th December 2020. Older and more vulnerable members of the community will receive their appointments first but hopefully the rest of us will get injections over the next couple of months. Onward and upward!
