Booked in for my jab on Monday. I'm genuinely excited about getting an injection! :)

My daughter had hers last Tuesday, sore arm on Wednesday, she said it was a proper anti climax

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers.  last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yester

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Girls at work said it's really well organised. In and out. Bit of a sore arm day after but that's it 👍

Good - that means it's doing something useful! :)

Bugs me when people have a flu jab and then complain because they felt a bit groggy for 24 hours. That's called an immune response! :)

And like I say. Sorry that sums it up. Enjoy your weekend pal 

I’d be pretty sure I’m safer than most folk on here despite not submitting to every stupid rule  and every law they impose that reduces our freedom to use our own thought process & common sense.

Isn't the problem that all those breaking the rules say the same thing.

That weirdo who seems to be travelling the country to watch Bolton on a stepladder probably says the same

If everybody, and I mean 100% of people had such to the rules and not bent then to suit themselves, then we'd not be in half the mess that we are

Let me know if she grows horns before Monday will you? :)

Seriously - it's nothing short of miraculous that we're having this conversation now.

The only chance I have of catching anything is through my wife as she’s at school every day, I’m working from home not seeing family members outside of my immediate bubble and exercising on my own. 

Which rule is it that you're actually breaking then?

Saw her yesterday and she's fine, as are all her colleagues who had it

I'm only joking mate - I would have gladly had it on day 1! And I hope everybody else will too.

Light at the end of the tunnel! 👍

Nope it’s thick fuckers who can’t compute what are the real risks and what to avoid doing that are the problem & you can throw in piss poor government rules like sending kids to university and schools while it’s possible to remotely home school.

But your version of common sense isn’t everyone else’s

Best driver in the world could be driving perfectly down Chorley new road, then suddenly Amir Khan sideswipes him in his Range.

You are assuming everyone else has “your” strain of common sense.

Youre just pissed off you can’t play golf.

I’ve worked throughout the Covid period and have noticed that in March, when this all kicked off, the roads were dead. Very few others driving around and even ‘rush hours’ were quiet. This time around, whilst not as busy as pre-covid, the roads are very much busier than the first lockdown. Have folk decided they haven’t been infected yet therefore it’s unlikely they will be?

 

Lots of industries/businesses shut down last time, either because of the unknown or because they thought they had to.

Now after nearly a year of this, I suppose you can't blame them for staying open if the government doesn't strictly say they have to close.

I don't think it's anything other than that - there's nowhere else for folk to be going.

Presumably the hope from the government is that closing schools will stop it from getting totally out of hand (although our definition of what that is seems to change by the day) and then the vaccine will come to the rescue.

If cabinet had someone involved with common sense I’d be more likely to follow their guidance, but they’re thick as mince.

Aye but their common sense would always be misinterpreted people who decided to go their own way and follow their own rules. 
 

One Of the reasons we’re in this god awful mess.

Ive no doubt you are sensible about it mounts as are most on here but people are idiots and they need it spelling out for them in size 36 comic sans

The golf one is interesting. I get the frustration because in theory it shouldn’t cause anyone any problems. But... you know full well that if golf is allowed then quite rightly people will demand that their sport / activity should be allowed. And it goes on.
 

Plus how do we think most people get to golf clubs? They drive. Which means more people on the road and a greater chance of the emergency services being needed.

Simplest just to say that nothing is allowed.

They’re good enough when negotiating trade deals which suit you though.

Thick when stopping you going for a knock.

Selfish, really.

Think it’s currently closed as shit loads go but starmount is literally a couple at a time 

I used to fish starmount 2/3 times a week as a lad. Possibly a bit tough in the winter I would say though pal. But gets the wee fella out the house in the fresh air

I think they are administering both now here in Bolton. I guess they are using up the first batches of the Pfizer and then moving on to the Oxford one.

Not sure pal. He works and lives in Wigan. Whilst he’s a front line nhs foot soldier he’s not vulnerable so one jab and wait probably about right I would say
