I didn't manage to haul myself down to Manor farm restoration, this weekend.
Yesterday morning, saw me queuing up early for my Covid booster. A mightily slick operation at my GPs had about one patient being jabbed every minute or so. This was a far different operation than previous vaccinations. It showed how far we had come, losing much of the hysteria.
We all formed an orderly queue to be let in. The only social distancing was that observed by us Brits in a normal queue. Doors opened promptly at 8:30, with a gate keeper filtering us to one of two receptionists. They ticked off our names, and we joined another short queue, where another gate keeper/usher would filter us to one of three medics.
Actually, the medics wouldn't always wait for the usher, my medic motioned me over three seconds after she had administered a jab. My jab was given to me in about 20 seconds, where upon I was told to 'hop it'. None of this hanging around for 15 minutes stupidity, like in the past.
Only reaction so far, a slightly sore upper arm where the medic stabbed me.
Sunday morning's visit was cancelled due to tremendous rain and thunderstorms. The rain itself was on par with tropical intensity, which would result in very boggy conditions. I didn't fancy walking across a flat expanse, being the tallest object around, bearing metal cameras in the middle of a thunderstorm.
The other huge news of the week, Loony Liz Truss resigned as PM. The shortest and most catastrophic reign ever! The Star proclaimed their Iceberg lettuce the winner, as it out lasted Lettuce Liz.
So far Rishi Sunak is in the lead with over 100 MPs supporting him. However, barmy Boris (Johnson) has returned to have a go at being PM, and he and his team has immediately got back to form by lying that they have the necessary support of 100 MPs.
Other big news, the other moron (Trump) has been slapped with a subpoena to testify before congress; while the Ukranian army is on the outskirts of Kherson, and looks to retake it soon.
I doubt Inert have accomplished huge amounts since Wednesday. Had I gone down to the restoration this weekend, I suspect I would have taken piecemeal shots of progress, which looked suspiciously like ones I took last week. Better to wait see what Inert are up to mid week, and then see if the weather is clement enough to visit next weekend. By which time we'll have a new PM!
