  1. My first trip on QE2 was a cruise to nowhere so it can be done. Alternatively you could cruise from one UK port to another and back again. I expect when cruises start it will be at a reduced capacity, so you might still get afternoon tea in the Queens Room.
  2. Yes thanks Photo Andy, my car is due a service and MOT in early July. I am hoping I can take it in before I go back to work. I am wondering what to do whilst I am waiting for it to be finished. I have a service plan, but that limits me to where I can take the car. The original plan was to drop the car off and go into Manchester on the tram from Bury. That's not happening this year.
  3. It must be time I went to bed, I saw that and had a vision of a giant Venus fly trap.
  4. Cunard are still selling the August trip, but I expect the cruise will be cancelled. Hopefully, we will meet sometime. I am due on QM2 in December and then again in May 2021 and QV in September 2021. Therefore, if the August cruise is cancelled I will need a refund.
  5. We are having issues with fires near me. There have been 4 or 5 on the moors around here. Not sure if these are idiots with BBQ's / camp fires, arson or accidental. It's been very dry here so does not take much for a fire to get out of control.
  6. Yes, I agree, stay safe and I hope your house and neighbourhood are ok.
  7. England has had one of the warmest and sunniest springs on record when we have not been able to take advantage. What are the odds that when they restrictions are finally lifted, the weather will change. Or maybe it will autumn or even winter by then.
  8. The Great Tits left their nest today, 7 of them, now hiding in the garden, still being fed by parents.
  9. It seems we had some campers near here, who thought it was a good idea to have a BBQ. Setting a forest on fire in the process. Idiots.
  10. It could be too sad to see all those shops with nowhere to go. Hopefully, we will be on QV, but maybe not with the big bands.
  11. That's the one, I have booked. Was a very good price and includes breakfast.
  12. Only 29 years of cruising for me, but I agree.
  13. Thanks for the advice. I have a booking with Holiday Inn Express in Southampton for August. If the cruise is cancelled but the hotel is open, I might go anyway and then move on somewhere for a few days.
  14. I have received email confirmation that I will get refunds for the rail tickets for June so that is good. But still nothing from Holiday Inn about when I can expect a refund from them. It has been cloudy here all day, but clear now so off to watch the ISS pass overhead.
  15. Some shops and outdoor markets here in England will open in June, with other shops opening later in the month. No news yet on when pubs will be able to re-open.
