The first piece of good news for me today was an email from Currys telling me that my new laptop was ready to be collected. We drove to the store on the outskirts of Douglas to find there were no other cars waiting at the drive-through pick up point and three lovely young gentleman all standing waiting for customers. I handed over my email printout and within 5 minutes my package was deposited into the open car boot ready to be whisked away home.
It took no time at all to set it up and I am now enjoying the freedom of my own, exclusive tech candy.
The best news, however, was announced this evening. From Monday there will no longer be any social distancing required, except for health and care environments. We are close to 28 days with no cases and it is to be assumed that we may currently be virus free. We shall be keeping our borders closed for the time being to maintain the status quo.
Boy, that news was welcome today.
Very good news JayCee. Long may the situation be so.ReplyDelete
Let us hope so.ReplyDelete
Weren't you allowed to bring one of those lovely young gentlemen home as a plaything? I am sure that Lord Peregrine would not have objected. Great news about the lifting of the IOM lockdown.ReplyDelete
Thanks YP. I am too old for playthings.Delete
Well I do hope that you Island stay Covid free.ReplyDelete
Not sure if it will last but here's hoping.Delete
We are still getting 200+ new cases every day but we played doubles tennis this morning despite being told not to (there was no one else there!)ReplyDelete
Well, you are sensible enough to make your own choices. Enjoy your life!Delete
Yeh, enjoy it while you can, before they open up the borders!ReplyDelete
I am hoping they keep them closed until there is minimal threat from the UK. May be some time!Delete
Just popped over from Yorkshire Pudding. How marvellous to be Covid-free. Hoping London will follow soon.ReplyDelete
Hi Addy. Thanks for visiting. Here's hoping for all of the UK. I would dearly love to see my family again.Delete
Good news all round for you!ReplyDelete
Down here we were doing ok, then silly bu***ers went to rallies all over the country.....we now wait for the outcome.
Good news comes in threes so, one more to come ! How lovely for you to most likely be Covid free .... can’t see that happening here for quite a while especially, as Cathy says, with rallies and demonstrations going on !!! Enjoy the freedom of your single tech life ! XXXXReplyDelete
Thanks Jacqueline. Still a few technical glitches to puzzle out, but getting there xxDelete
Sounds good to me. We have still been going out as usual but Tom stays in the car while I shop. It was the lack of goods in the shops that was the worst for us. I really hope we don't get another wave but am not holding my breath.ReplyDelete
We are still being cautious and the restaurants and cafes still have some restrictions in place, but things are looking up at last. Take care you two.Delete
We're Covid free around here, not that that helps us because we are tied up in this together and no regional variations, at least yet, on social distancing.ReplyDelete
Yes, it's when everyone starts moving around the country that the problems occur. At least you are in a safe place now.Delete
What a great day. It's unusual to have something techy go so well. And you're five days ahead of us in dropping the social distancing. Enjoy your first week of freedom!ReplyDelete
HUgs, Mary x.
Gentle start methinks xxDelete
Excellent news all round!ReplyDelete
