Alan .... our Sons wedding was cancelled for 4th April but they finally got married on 26th July with only 20 of us attending the ceremony and then had a few drinks/snacks around their house in '2 distinct family bubbles' to protect ourselves. Very strange and not what we had planned but it wasn't total lockdown. It's worth noting that we all live atleast 5 miles outside the fabled Leicester lockdown zone which at the time was the first in the UK.
Like you say everything is very fluid and I hope things ease enough for you to attend the wedding, there is always hope. My Mum was rushed in to hospital on Saturday and was quickly diagnosed with cancer which needed emergency surgery. Despite the rules about no visitors I was allowed (wearing a mask but twice challenged about why are you in the building) to see her to discuss her options so that she could give consent for surgery, fill out the DNR forms and say our goodbyes. So there are situations that change the blanket rules. Thankfully she has survived the surgery although there is a long road ahead.
Keep the Faith ;)

What a horrible time for you. Very best wishes to your Mum. Hopefully that surgery has done the trick.

My mum's basically alone in her house in Weymouth, with just deliveries of tesco food which I arrange from here in France (wonderful service) and the occasional chat through the window with my sister. Otherwise she's been out twice for a very short walk in 5 months. She has very overdue cataract eye surgery which has been indefinitely postponed, plus neck and hip problems. And getting quite depressed at home alone. It's a bad time for those who are really shielding properly, not made any better psychologically by those who could stay in to help people like her but insist on gathering in large groups and keeping the virus in circulation.

Basque authorities admit they are experiencing a second coronavirus wave and another town in Castilla y León has been placed in confinement due to a surge in cases.

Alan.... I think the world has gone to hell... My farther spent from October to late June down in Malaga... Wasn't nice where his words.

I think the safest place is on top of a bloody high mountain at moment... The general populous has no idea and maybe this is the modern equivalent of the plague... Its going to get bloody ugly this autumn onwards....

Take care.

Just knocked my planned trip to Northern Spain due at the end of the month, Brittany have re booked us for the end of August next year - lets hope that we all can get back to as close to normal by then and hopefully before

I can't vouch for this news agency, it was shared by a friend, but it sounds as though Spain is heading towards another full lockdown.
