I agree HG and I was quite surprised as I had been a bit nervous about what I was going to. Mrs Axe was very nervous about us going and has acquired some Covid tests for my son and I to make use of.

I do wonder though how this kind of situation squares with the 4 week delay. SO although the whole thing was well handled, it does feel out of step with wider concerns.

Was at a funeral yesterday - socially distanced, masked at the crematorium, the wake was well ordered - appropriate numbers inside at the venue, and others at tables outside. I did however hug my friend of 40 years given it was the funeral of his 26 yo daughter :(

Too Much Water
A wake for my Mum would have been good, I was sad we never got to have one and my Dad won’t want to have one now.

I'd have done the same TR. That is incredibly sad.
Friends have recently arrived in Malaysia for work, and are quarantined in a designated hotel. They have set delivery times for food to a chair outside their room. Person delivering in full PPE. If they open the door at any other time, it triggers an alarm (as they discovered when they thought they heard something outside their door and opened it.)
They also have to log on to an app daily and report their status.

TR that's awful for your friend? My deepest sympathies.

Fellrunner, your comments are spot on. I remember last year in the queues to get into supermarkets, then finding empty shelves or rationed items, all I could think of was how easy we had it compared to our parents and grandparents struggling with years of wartime rationing. It's an inconvenience, not the end of the world!

Gnome booked for jabbing Sunday :-D
husband just back from 2nd jabbing

human memory is very short lived - trivial example husband moaning about the sport.... I reminded him that a year ago he had none. He still moaned! LOL

The war was terrible but there aren't many who can remember it so to today's folk the last 18 mths have been unreal

I have just attended my best friends mum’s funeral by video link. It was hard not being there. And hard to see them with only 5 additional guests after her, brother, sister and partners.

(They are in North Tyneside so reduced attendance to 10)

It is hard not being there to support and I also confess we hugged when I saw her last week she was in pieces. We had both done LFTs her as she’s been with mum leading up to her passing & then out and about dealing with everything and me as I was going to work.

Got something to say?
