So Boris has cancelled Christmas this year. Before his announcement our Christmas day had already been cancelled. My youngest daughter, Stevie, and her fiance, Darren had invited us to have Christmas dinner with them this year as it was their first Christmas in their new home. But, Stevie called last night to tell us that Darren had tested positive for Covid.
He isn't too bad with it, thank goodness and Stevie is not showing any symptoms, although she has been for a test today, I doubt the results will be back for a couple of days though, fingers crossed she will be able to avoid getting it too.
So Christmas day will be a little different. Stevie had already ordered the food and was due to pick it up on Tuesday evening. We will now pick that order up and cook Christmas dinner and then do a doorstep meal delivery to them.
I daresay the new rules have scuppered a lot of plans for people, there really does seem no end to it, at this rate there will be no jobs, shops or business left, It's all very worrying.
To think that in the Springtime we all thought this would be over by Christmas! (yeah, they though that about WWII)
I'll be consoling myself with stitching and knitting seeing as we can't meet up, how about you?
Speaking of knitting. I am still working away on my (not so strictly) socks. I'm on the foot part on both of them so the end is in sight!
Take care, see you tomorrow
