We had the usual call from Boots inviting us to make an appointment for our annual 'flu jab.  I asked about the Covid booster and was told this would probably be done at the same centre where we received jabs 1 and 2.

There was talk of this happening over here in the ROI a few months ago, and it will more than likely happen over in the UK, as well. There was talk of mixing it in with the flu jab, and there was also talk of people receiving a different vaccine to the one they received already, which would boost their immune systems even more, so, it would be a win-win for everybody?

Thanks for the update, we don't know about the restaurants you have mentioned as we never eat in LG, but if they are closing early things must be bad, of course most of the Spanish will do their own cooking even on holiday.

We have looked at coming over after the kids go back to school & staying in a hotel B&B only, to go out & eat but it's a little worrying if they shutting, also it might be quiet but the prices seem expensive.

Also we were hoping to sort out our accommodation for our 3 month winter visit next year, but it does not look to promising after being stuck there with no restaurants open once before.

We arrived Saturday afternoon, property safe, which is always a worry when you are away for so long, and the property around us tends to be rented, so no permanent owners to keep an eye out. A fine red sand outside, and even inside where it has blown in, amazing how quick properties fall in to disrepair when left unloved. So we have eaten this week at Rosso Pommodoro, which is where the Nosh Shop used to be. Nice fresh Italian food, run by a young couple with family, who are popping in and out. Not expensive and nice food. 60's bar next door was closed! We have never been in there, but wanted to this time to thank Eddie and Hollie, for posting the short films about LG that we have seen on Youtube during the Lockdown. Another couple of nights we have been to Buen Gusto, which is the old Chinese next to Typsy Terrace, which is still shut. The menu is very similar to Bodeguita, but somehow is an improvement. They are lovely people, and nothing is to much trouble. Last night went in to San Juan arriving at 7pm, sat down at resturant in front on beach, only to be told kitchen shut and closing at 7.30pm. It seams that all the resturants were closing, maybe a more stringent lockdown than LG! So we returned and ate in the Plaza, which was fine. Although the flights are coming in now, still exstreamly quiet with brits, but lots of Spanish about, whom have come down from the North for their holidays. :(
