Hi from holiday guest house in sunny (not) Pembrokeshire :)

How are you all finding the end of the firebreak? I can’t say that our life has changed at all since Monday. Hoping for some dry weather so we can meet some friends outside over the weekend.
AlohaMolly · 11/11/2020 18:55
I didn’t think I’d do much for the end of firebreak BUT I’ve had a bit of a shit week, so ended up taking myself out for breakfast Monday and Tuesday, then after school pancakes for DS on Tuesday and after school tea and ice cream for DS this afternoon too. I’ve just arranged breakfast out with a friend tomorrow and I’m meeting another friend for a drink in the evening. I’ve perhaps gone overboard, but I can feel myself teetering on the edge of poor mental health for a variety of reasons, so have hit the eating my feelings thing hard this week!!

Not feeling a whole lot different but have seen family and caught up with some friends.
Interesting to read Merthyr might be next after Liverpool for Mass testing that will certainly produce lots of work for Track and Trace!

@AlohaMolly, I've been out for coffee and cake 2 days in a row , just because we can meet up with a friend again
DD asked about Christmas shopping in Cardiff , we normally go together on the train ( as I'm a wimp about driving places I don't know )
Bearing in mind we're from a rural low infection area and have only been to Llandeilo recently
What does everyone think ? Is everyone shopping online ?
Or having a day out with lunch at The Ivy and schmoozing round John Lewis ?
ArosGartref · 11/11/2020 19:13
You don't want to know the things I've seen on Facebook about mass testing for Merthyr. People are crazy, mun. If they go for it I'll be straight up getting my lateral flow on.
Muchtoomuchtodo · 11/11/2020 19:58
Very soggy here. I was hoping to meet a friend for coffee and cake this weekend but she’s having to self isolate as her husband’s COVID test has been lost. She’s so frustrated- both missing work and 2 kids off school.....
footprintsintheslow · 11/11/2020 20:33
I've spent 6 hours in the park today. So excited to be out!
Dreadful weather here in South Wales now though.

As someone who potentially will be mass tested then there will be no one for them to track or trace if I test positive as I literally go nowhere.
SpamIAm · 11/11/2020 22:37
We registered for the Oxford university study today so that'll be interesting - although will be very surprised if either of us test positive or have antibodies.
Been nice getting back out to baby classes this week and being able to buy things I don't need in Lidl. Going to buy some shoes in Tesco tomorrow just because I can.

Done nothing much this week, got a bit of well a lot of IBS type problems and prefer my own loo. Spoke to DS today he is in England, very down in the dumps, got his brother and his dad to speak to him too he is a bit more cheerful tonight. Think he just wants to come home now is fed up with living in a city and just wants to be a country mouse again. Told his dad he is bringing the girlfriend back with him
SpamIAm · 11/11/2020 23:30
IBS in the age of COVID is even more of a PITA (no pun intended) than normal. Not knowing whether all public loos are open, not being so easy to pop into a pub/cafe to use the loo etc.

Life’s not changed here much since Monday but we have booked a night in a hotel in Mold for Saturday. Feels very risky!!

Aw, my dd loves Cardiff and city life but only yesterday she said to me, 'I'm still a country mouse!'
So strange, because I've ordered the book for her Xmas stocking. (Same copy as the one she had back in 2005 lol)
MrsHuntGeneNotJeremyObviously · 12/11/2020 07:21
Re Cardiff uni end of term dates, isn't the 18th quite late generally. I thought students usually finished around the 10th and had a full month off to do all the reading thru never finished earlier
IdrisElbow · 12/11/2020 09:01
😂 take care out there. People have had some crazy times in Mold!
Arosadra · 12/11/2020 09:21
Nothing changed here since the end of the firebreak except that I met a friend outdoors.
DD’s friends are all straight back to having sleepovers and she’s grumpy because I won’t let her.
Went to matalan on Monday and it was busy like the January sales.
I’m still mainly aros adra’

I saw M&S cafe are going to start asking for proof of address to prove you're in the same household if there's more than 4 of you, which is all very well, but I want to go somewhere with the family we've bubbled with for afternoon tea (as a pre-baby thing so will need to happen quite soon!) I am aware this is a very first world problem, but am I going to find this isn't possible as there will be more than 4 of us aged over 11 and obviously they have a different address to DH and me?! Does anyone know if this is a general thing or just something M&S have decided?
