Back To Normal...Again

No new cases here for I forget how many days now . Our "circuit breaker" lockdown is due to be lifted at midnight tonight so we can get back to normal.



I will still remain cautious; after all, it just took one person at Christmas to go out and about to cafes, bars and restaurants to start it all up again.

  1. It's alright for some. We're still living in North Korea. I mean Ireland. Take P for a pint and a good scoff JayCee.

    1. 😂 We are hoping to go out with our friends next weekend for a meal, but only to a reasonably safe, well spaced restaurant.

  3. Good for you all. Hope you can enjoy a little freedom. In the sunshine maybe?

  4. Good news. Cases dropping here right across the county so hopefully good times will come for us too and maybe regional tiers again.

  5. That is encouraging news. Our numbers are finally coming down but we still have too many deaths and people in ICU's and on ventilators.

    1. We are all very much aware of how lucky we have been. One of the advantages of living on a small island with easily controlled borders. I hope that your situation continues to ease.

  6. Seems that the IOM authorities have done a damned good job of addressing the pandemic with all of its dangers.

    1. I agree, but there is still a vocal minority whingeing and complaining about their lack of freedom.

    2. I would rather be alive and constrained than free and dead.

  7. You're very lucky that it seems to be holding off. But, as you say, be cautious; it can so easily come back again if people think it's all over.

    1. Exactly Cro. We have just seen what happens when people become complacent or just plain selfish.

  8. Well done IOM. we are entering our 4th month of lockdown today. Definition of insanity is appearently repeating the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. Everyone is so fed up they are not taking it seriously any more. Lucky yoy guys. xxx Mr T

    1. Thanks Tigger. Our authorities have largely made the right decisions so far. Well done to them.

  9. This is certainly very good news but you are wise to stay cautious. Better safe than sorry.

    In Budapest we have curfews, border controls and lockdown restrictions and the promise of Sputnik injections. But, we must count our blessings as we are safe and well. It is so important to protect those on the front line by doing all we can.
    Stay safe.

    1. Hello and thank you for visiting my blog.
      It is good to hear that you are safe and well. Some inconvenience caused by lockdown restrictions is worth it in order to keep us all safe.
      It is to be hoped that by the end of this year we can all start to see an end to all this.

  10. A sigh of relief...though I'm sure a cautious one. It takes just one foolish person to tip the balance. IOM has done a stellar job trying to keep islanders safe.

  11. Glad to hear your good news, JayCee. You know what is happening here in the US - too many selfish people who don't believe in science! So sad!!
    I read a slogan easy to remember, "Mask it or casket!"
    Glad you are staying safe!!
