Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Just finished removing the last of the meat from the turkey crown: A big chunk of breast in the fridge ready to be sliced up for tomorrow evenings dinner together with some left over roast potatoes, stuffing and pigs-in-blankets.

The rest of the breast sliced and wrapped in cling film and bagged together with the two big wings and then a bag of assorted smaller white meat chunks. All in the freezer for later use.

A bit difficult as all the bread making flour and yeast are long gone, secondly I have never made bread, and I have no room for a bread machine.

We are in tier 4 so no mixing, plus as my niece works in Asda my sister don't want to risk my dad's health.


Yet people in my towns FB page are boasting they will break the rules and if you follow the rules you are sheeple, I say something impolite I get a 24 hour ban, yet they are free to spout their garbbage.

If she lives alone then she can still have a support bubble.

Yes that's what i have learnt recently, so because i currently live alone this year i was able to form a support bubble and go to Wales and stay with my parents over the Christmas period(not just Christmas Day), and my sisters family could only visit on Christmas Day.

Just got back to Cambridge now time to relax for the next week then it's back to work.

Aren't you supposed to form a bubble with one other person...

On Christmas Day, you were allowed see a maximum of two other households (your ‘Christmas bubble’), if you were tier 3 or below.

My parents formed a support bubble with me(the one other person), so the Christmas lockdown or tiers don't affect this, I can legally visit them at any time as they're part of the support bubble.

I was only able to see my sister's family on Christmas Day at my parents house.

It's all very complicated but my parents contacted a Welsh MP and she replied to them personally saying support bubble are ok even in tier 3,4 etc.

On the bbc website it said in tier 4 your support bubble could only be 1 other lone adult household, my partner got very funny about it over Christmas as she has her sister living with her, didn't matter much to me as I try not to be in the same room as her anyway as she has blood cancer. Think I'd better alert the authorities to your activities though

TheDaddy i thought we spoke about this in PM the other day as you couldn't visit the next village to me so i'm surprised you think i've done something wrong when i am just following the legal rules as laid out by the government,

1 of the criteria in the rules of a support bubble is if someone is single, this will allow people who live alone to form a support bubble with another household(just the same as your BBC quote), when they do this it is classed as 1 household so with the Christmas Day bubble rules this allows an already formed support bubble household to meet with 1 other household, after Christmas Day you can't it's back to normal rules.

Tier 4 couldn't meet up with another household on Christmas Day unless it was part of their support Bubble.

I hope that makes sense.

I hope 2021 will be better by next Christmas and things can return as close to normal as possible.

Currently watching the New Year's Day concert from Vienna. In memory of my mother who used to watch it. She loved a good waltz tune..

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Just taken my wife to see her mum at the care home - they’ve built a "visiting pod" with separate entrances and a dividing clear panel, which mean you can see and hear each other in a safe manner - really impressed by it.

That's great, for all parties.


When my mum was in a nursing home the home had a zero visitor policy at the time, I was able to stand at the patio door to her room and spend 10 minutes when I dropped essential stuff off for her.


I was allowed to go with my dad 3 time when they relaxed the rules but this was outside (luckily it was summer), they then changed the rules to only one visitor from one household every 3 weeks.
