    It's a lot more convenient, and to cut a long story short, it stopped my birthday celebrations from being cancelled this year.

I myself got concerned about my health lately so decided to take a closer look at medical insurances.I really like what Healthplan offers. They offer the best value for money, I guess.

    Got a testing kit a couple of weeks ago and and it came up negative on the lateral flow test - I have to say that it saved my birthday this year!

    (It felt ticklish twisting the stick in my nostrils five or six times).

    I think there will be a surge in cases in the next few weeks as children return to schools,universities colleges etc.How long will the schools remain opening before it returns to home studies the seasons are against us again.

    I'm not sure if we're in a fourth or fifth wave now. I have thought all along that vaccines should be mandatory like masks. I'm not going to hate people who think otherwise but the numbers say they are simply wrong. At some point they will be not a part of the solution but a part of the problem as they say.

    I saw on U.S. news a story about a fully vaccinated mother and her 15 year old who wasn't (but was two days away from a first shot administered) when they both go covid... the mother was not severely impacted but the 15 year old was in a coma on a ventilator for eleven days, big difference.

    Someone at my work has tested positive so we were all given a test kit, mine read negative but they suggested getting professionally done test to be sure.

    I'm not too worried as I've had my jabs & haven't shown any symptoms, but I've got to wait until I get the results to be sure.

    What happened to containment and confinement ffs !!


    Apparently every plane / coach / hotel / hospital theyve been in contact with will be contaminated through their air conditioning units ..so it will spread like crazy ..

    Nothing to do with fuel duty - that hasn't changed.
    It's the 8-year high in oil price being passed onto the motorist

    Getting somewhere.

    16-17 year olds will be able to have a vaccine soon
