Nopheads onions are the only ones that matter.

I wouldn't say that. We did have a good crop this year but I used the last one in a curry last night, so will have to buy them from now on.

unhappy, we have always followed the government rules, but we don't know a single other person that has. All our friends, family and neighbours break them. Mainly because they have children and grandchildren, so they mind them, or have celebratory meals for graduations, birthdays, etc.

What I said where the rules are stupid because as our numbers increase they allow more social freedom. Do the majority actually think that makes sense? If so I despair at the lack of logical reasoning.

Were just booking flights out for next month. But with these new restrictions have decided to leave it again.
Really need to get out to pay some bills and get some sun now that it looks like we are entering the Autumn/winter here. Limbo is a word that comes to mind!

Jet2 suspended flights again. Not sure if we will book with them for December. Might trust Ryanair again, at least they got us here. A few more younger couples walking around last night and this morning. Hope that people of all ages start to return soon as there might not be many more businesses able to survive.

Is the mobile phone/top up shop run by Juan still open in Porto Santiago?

Masks! I have had trouble shopping with my wife due to wearing a mask! I find them uncomfortable and also the elastic straps around my ears annoying! My wife picked up a couple in Pound Land. Well their great, black very light fabric like tights material and stretchty. No elastic as 2 holes precut in to fabric for your ears.
So light and easy to wear that I am completley okay with wearing a mask now!
It is worth trying a few types to get one that suits you!

You can wear any face covering in the UK but for Spain it is supposed to be a proper mask that actually filters. No idea how well that is policed.

was going to book for late October, but have read that Easyjet close to collapse, and also worried that could be caught in a new Spanish lockdown, and having to self isolate on return to UK. So many variables!
Think maybe the best to continue to wait and if we go, book the flights the day before! Just fancy a bit of sun and LG!

We booked EasyJet flights flights for November in March as a gamble. As we get nearer the uncertainty is going up rather than down. Regulations and case trends change nearly every day.

I got an email from them a few days ago saying our return flight in December was a few hours earlier. Perhaps they consolidated some flight due to lack of passengers.
