Getting Better

We have had no new cases of the virus recorded here for more than a week. There are no COVID19 patients now in hospital and only 3 confirmed cases currently self isolating in the community.

More restrictions are due to be relaxed within the next week or two and things are slowly getting back to a more normal footing, but it is early days still.

There is no date yet for the reopening of our border, thankfully, as the situation across the water is not so stable.  We can't afford to open the gates to a second wave which would swamp our very limited resources.

Onwards and upwards.

  1. Right! I am coming over there in an inflatable boat. The seas are calm right now. Get the east wing ready! It will be nice to drink brandy and smoke cigars with Lord Peregrine while you fuss around us - bringing plates of food and giggling.

    1. I shall instruct the staff to prepare the guest quarters for your arrival. As I cannot risk contamination by associating with visitors from Plagueland, you shall be attended by Scrivener, my faithful retainer. He is currently chasing the rats from the East Wing and will have nailed up some curtains in anticipation of your visit.

    2. Legendary Isle of Man hospitality. I can't wait. I hope my room has a lockable door. I don't want Scrivener entering in the dead of night. In the morning I like my fried eggs gently basted, granary toast and smoked bacon please. Then Lord Peregrine and I will go hunting Manx cats. Tell Scrivener to clean the rifles.

    3. Scrivener is already smoking your bacon using his own personal supply of Benson & Hedges

  2. Yeh, you're free of the plague. Just keep those darn foreigners out as long as you can. Our invasion began last Monday and real foreigners can come from 15 June. We did have a couple of new cases today. Still a few in one of the gypsy areas.
    The end is nigh!

  3. If I swim over will show me where George Formby sang: "Riding In The TT Races?" I think Ireland and the Isle of Man have taken the situation far more sensibly than the blonde buffoon at number 10.

    1. We could show you all the places he went to for that film. No Limits.
      To be fair, it is pretty easy for us to keep people out. I imagine it's impossible for the UK.

    2. It is. We get lots of Paddies and Manx coming over. We have got flush toilets over here and electricity too! Their eyes just about pop with disbelief.
