My better half has been shielding now since February last year and of course has had both jabs, but she is concerned about the varients.

You have been warned, your Mrs won't let you.
Every time I tell someone that I worked for the same firm for nearly forty years, the obvious reply is 'you do less time for murder'.

If any of you are down by the river and can see a massive white cruise ship, I am on it. It’s the MSC Virtuosa and is the eighth biggest afloat. I’m on a cruise for a week from Southampton. Glasgow tomorrow is cancelled, so we are staying two days moored at the Pier Head. We are only allowed off for organised tours so won’t be able to wander around. Really strange. Off to Chester today but on board tomorrow. Don’t feel too sorry for me as I’m on the drinks package!!

Just got back from our coach trip to Chester and Port Sunlight. The coach stopped near the house where I lived and the first school I attended. The swimming baths where I learned to swim is now a garden centre. We also passed my old local and the first pub I got thrown out of. They said I was under age but I was 21!! Wish they got my age wrong now, but at least I always get pensioner rates without arguing!!

The ship is fantastic. It’s brand new and normally takes 6000 but currently only 1000 on board. The food is excellent. Even AM might be impressed. It’s sailing up and down the Channel and the Irish Sea. You can get on at any port including Liverpool. Prices are good including drinks and tips - and of course all meals.

Which garden centre is that BBTC? When I’m on Wirral for non-March days now, quite a bit of time is spent in garden centres as the area much better off for then than those around here.

It’s the one in Port Sunlight near the war memorial. I used to live very close. The house is now a listed building, like nearly all of them.

A few years later, my school used to take us for swimming lessons in the summer term. That was a long time ago. Happy days!

The Port Sunlight garden centre is one of my favourites, though wasn’t aware about the swimming baths.
