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.
