If its possible to travel  to see relatives that is my first plan  my second plan would be to go off in my camper van by the sea in a quite location and chill out

    I'd really like to go visit my son down in the Midlands but I'm not sure I'll be able to do it at the moment because of health.

    He has his own problems so it's difficult for him to get to me too :disappointed:

    I have family in South West London that we haven't seen since last August, so it'll be nice to see them, OK I'm mad at my Brother at the moment because he's too busy to help me with PC problems, but I'd like to see my nephew and niece.

    Also, I have Comic Cons and a wrestling event to attend between March and mid June.

    I don't plan to do anything...  I can't have the vaccine and we all know it'll continue to spread through vaccinated people, who will be more lax with the rules after having the vaccine.

    I used to avoid places every winter due to the risk of flu/colds/noro...now it looks like I'll be avoiding places all summer as well.  Don't see an end to it myself.  Sorry, I know that's pretty bleak lol.

    Sadly I agree with you. Whilst it will be more under control we will never be totally free of it. It comes from the same family as the common cold and it has never been possible to eradicate that either.

    Actually, if you believe sci fi, in 40 years when Star Trek level medical technology is invented, the common cold will be a thing of the past, trouble is most of us will be dead by then.

    @OverlyAnxious I cant have the vscine either or the flu jab and when I was younger I couldnt have the child hood vacines 

    You can go out safely by not going by people when your out if I temper rightly  correct me if I am wrong you csnt wear a mask ?  As @BrettW says its going to round for a whilst 

    I do hope that you  can find a safe way to go out and try and have some normal life  thats why I am glad I can drive only me in my car and I know lots of places in my camper van that font have many prople and still keep my self reasonably safe 

    I fully understand how you feel and I empathise  with you

    Yes, that's true, I can still drive locally and walk around parks etc on my own.  I do tend to keep myself to myself anyway (never been a fan of people lol!) but I did like going to car shows and music events outdoors in the summer.  I'd only been able to start going to them in 2015, so it's those that I'll still be missing, even when they are allowed to open again.

    Camper van has been suggested to me a few times over the years...it's definitely something I'm not ruling out yet!  But currently can only do a few miles in the car so would obviously need to manage a bit more distance to make one worthwhile.

    @OverlyAnxious a friend of mine converted an old Luton van and drove around Scotland etc, he loved it. He even had a generator with him. He really enjoyed being self sufficient.

    @OverlyAnxious sorry to hear that :( I didn’t know people could still carry the virus and pass it on to others after they’d had the vaccine!

    Just wondering if you’ve made any progress with the fluoxetine yet?

    A campervan may be a great idea as it’s your own space that you can keep clean, like a movable hotel room.

    I’m not holding my breath but to be honest I do hope that many of the habits people have adopted in the last year stick well after the vaccine has been administered to most of the population. Especially cleaning hands and surfaces. It was only this year I learnt that Tesco trolley handles are blue and not grey - they are all so clean now! Obviously I want the virus to go away but the hygiene habits are welcome to stay by me!

    If people kept these basic hygiene practices it would reduce unnecessary deaths from flu and other illnesses as well as obviously Covid, and help out the NHS.

    Senior management is 60 in the summer and we have been married for 40 years in the autumn, we had to cancel our holiday to a 4* hotel in the south of Tenerife so we will be going there probably in september when it will still be 27c.
    Other than that we need to see our grandkids and daughter and the mother in law.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    A holiday in the Shetland Islands was on the cards this year so I hopefully that will happen in 2022.
