Led by donkeys:
Government’s advice yesterday
Environment Secretary Eustace : trips to 'amber' countries - including most of Europe - are acceptable if people want to see friends and family.
Prime Minister later overruled this, such travel is off limits.
Health Minister Lord Bethell -holidays anywhere abroad were dangerous with foreign trips 'not for this year’ and returning holidaymakers should be electronically tagged in quarantine.
Welsh Secretary Simon Hart -‘some people might think a holiday is essential' and so should use their 'common sense'.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock -people should only travel to 'amber' or 'red' list countries if they have an 'exceptional reason' for doing so.
Skills Minister Gillian Keegan: (can someone explain what a skills ministers does? No? Maybe thats why I’ve never heard of her) deepened the chaos - Government trusting public to be ‘sensible’. Holidays to amber list countries are not illegal;warnings from Johnson are only ‘guidance’.
A morning of Aston’s yoga to calm me down, a dash to the mobile library (use it or lose it), lunch, rain,
Panic . . . thought I’d lost the last three months of my diary on my Mac ‘clean-up’ yesterday - false alarm but a nasty hour or two. My Time-Machine has not been backing up to My Book!!!!! Ahhh
Meanwhile. Our ‘No Mow May’ front lawn is a great success this year.
We're watching the green green grass of home as it grow grow grows, instead of chop, chop, chopping it. Easy.
