I don't have a big family and usually would be that waif and stray that turns up at other peoples Christmas dinners. I am not that bothered that it will be Christmas at home, probably on my own. I'd rather we did not have further lockdowns as not being able to go out and meet up with people is not helping me much. Currently as I know more people who have been made redundant than have had Covid, I'd rather we focused on the economy rather than Christmas which is massively stressful for a lot of people.
But I do appreciate that is my own personal opinion and others might want to have a big Christmas do.

If people are sensible and limit what they do then I doubt there would be a the need for a massive lockdown. Unfortunately some will do what they normally do and see loads of people because they are not going to be told what to do. The annoying thing is they will be the first to moan about another lockdown. The entitlement of some people is unbelievable.

Christmas day will be dad and I with my brother, sister in law and nephew as they are our bubble. Auntie, cousins and their families and friends will have to wait until things get better.

Even the BBC Has picked up on the Great Reset!

I was delighted to see it make a clear distinction between 'The Great Reset' and 'tHe GrEaT rEsEt'. Nothing like putting a teaspoon of truth into a vat of bollocks to give a crackpot theory credence.

Anyway, off my soapbox, I promise. Oxford vaccine news is FANTASTIC. I'm particularly pleased about the half-dose/full-dose news as surely (I'm a layman, so I don't know for certain) that implies it's teaching our bodies to do the hard work?

odd thing this morning is that sky news gets that and claims 90% which bbc news doesn't and is saying 70% lol

I was just pleased that the BBC had the guy on to explain. That was what made the '90% if we do THIS' most exciting for me. I know two people on the Oxford trial (one over 65), so this is brilliant news.

Plus it can be stored in a regular fridge so can be given by GPs without specialist storage or safety equipment. This means it really can be rolled out quickly. Well done Oxford.

I have just spent a couple of weeks in coronavirus land. I am not sure if I had it but my daughter who lives with us tested positive so we had to isolate. She never did get a continuous dry cough. The test and trace people are very slow by the time I got the call to isolate I could have infected half the district. My daughter's friend had a call to tell her she had to isolate for the afternoon. They seemed mainly concerned about whether we commuted to Liverpool. (We live in Bristol). If I had it it did not seem much different from the flu and definitely not worth closing the country down for.

That’s the kicker isn’t it. Everyone seems to have a different reaction to it!

All the unis are going to be starting to test all their students next week, so my concern is that will show an artificial surge in infections in those areas and could lead them to being in a higher tier than they naturally belong in. I guess we will see.

My daughter is at uni and told me yesterday the test wasn't compulsory? I don't think anyone knows what they are doing haha

No, it's not compulsory. They have asked for volunteers at work to administer it. I say sod that! Let the academic staff who have sat safely at home since March do their bit. I'm already taking a risk! I get the impression a lot of students have already disengaged this last week or so.
