I have had confirmation from Ken's brother that he should be able to join us for lunch in Devizes and he knows and approves of Morrison's cafe there! Shall we firm up on that venue and say 13.00 hours? :)
Covid allowing, most definitely :D Had a bit of a scare on that front today...

I got an alert on my running phone to say I'd been in contact with someone who tested positive but it was a false alarm allegedly... The BBC News website said there was a known problem ion the app. that causes this...

Just had an early warning text from Ken's sister. They are quarantined together in Streatley and apparently Ken has spent the last two days in bed with a heavy cold. A Covid test kit has been sent for and it is fingers crossed but obviously the Saunter is in jeopardy!! Just a heads up! :(

Mick, I just saw I accidentally put the totally wrong emoji in my post... I meant this one [-o< and NOT this one =D>

I'm very sorry :oops: A slip of the mouse :roll:

Now corrected... My apologies for any offence caused...

None taken whatsoever Jim. I assumed it was a typo, they are very close in the array. :)

Following this evening's announcement it will come as no surprise that I have postponed the Saunter and requested cancellations from the hotels. Unfortunately it really will be a 'suck it and see' situation now as we could not realistically complete the trip with days any shorter than they would have been. I expect therefore to look at completing the trip next year when hopefully everything will be open again and we will be able to enjoy more daylight and more freedom. In the meantime I can say that I will not be undertaking this plan as a virtual trip because with SWMBO at home, which she wasn't for the virtual March Meander I will not be able to spend sufficient time on the pc on a daily basis to make it work. :cry: :cry: :cry:

It is a real pity but I'm sure I'm not alone!! Many more people are suffering in more serious ways than me, at least we've avoided catching it and can stay home without losing our income!! Hard to see a happy christmas for a lot of children at the moment!! :cry: :cry: :(

Me too Jim, lets hope it may be in time for Xmas!

Just to compound the woes I have just heard from Ken's sister that he has tested positive for Covid which is really bad news for a 71 year old with a history of pneumonia. Needless to say both SWMBO and I are now glad we have strictly observed the quarantine rules amd will continue to do so. :cry:

Just arrived back from France ourselves last night and am busy catching up (no internet after our phone line went down on the Wednesday after we arrived and still not repaired when we left a week and a half later - useless bloody SFR) with the news.

My best wishes to you and, especially, Ken.
