Since my last post when our island had just lifted lockdown restrictions, five new cases were discovered three days later.
We are not to suffer any further lockdowns now though so we must all take whatever precautions we feel comfortable with in order to protect ourselves.
On the day the new cases were announced, P and I had travelled by bus into Douglas to meet our Advocate regarding the house move. (click here for information about IOM advocates). We also visited the Costa Coffee shop at the Sea Terminal while we waited for our bus home. Nobody, including us, was wearing a mask and we didn't find out about the new, unexpected cases until we reached home.
There are now plans afoot to allow visitors back to the island at the end of June so that will see an influx of new cases then.
I shall feel more confident being out and about once I have had my second jab but until then because of my asthma and breathing problems I shall remain cautious.
This week I made a start on clearing out stuff accumulated over the past thirty years.
Now I am running out of steam.
