Ah me! Observant readers will see that my signature has changed and we are no longer going on 25th June this year.
Two reasons :-
1. We remain doubtful of the travel situation for June. Any messing about with quarantine, isolation and testing would utterly ruin a holiday for us - what's the point of going if we're stuck inside for a fortnight when we get there and/or when we get back? And we simply cannot afford testing which at some prices could easily double the cost of our holiday (taking a chance and having it all change to quarantine in a hotel on return would treble it. Our holiday savings account can't cope with that!).
2. Ever since a fall downstairs last spring, Vera has been struggling to recover and suffered setbacks from a couple more trips and falls, she's had various treatments, but still not right, so we believe she'd not be able to do her normal holiday activities just yet. At present, I don't reckon she could walk to bus stop 18. But we've just bought a pedalling thing (Cubii) which seems to be doing good and hopefully she'll be fit by September.
The one 'good' thing about covid has been the fee-free change from TUI - the price difference for June next year has cost an extra £68 (which I hope to reduce by 2 when I can find out how to remove TUI's auto £2 donation addition - I refuse to be told what and when to donate, but the Manage my Booking entries don't include that one).
I'm sorry we won't be meeting with this year's June group, maybe you can all book for September so you can come to my birthday party? Please!!!
