What a wonderful day! The sun is shining brightly and the first person in the UK has had the Pfizer–BioNTech vaccination for COVID-19. It’s not the end of the struggle of course, it will take months for everyone to get the jab, but it is the beginning of the end and the death count will start to fall from here on. All we need to do now is make sure more than sixty percent of the population take the jab, so come on everyone step up when your time comes!
There is no doubt that twenty twenty has been a tough year. For me personally it’s felt like spending a year on one of those cartoon islands with just one tree. I didn’t go as far as Tom Hanks and create my own Wilson but now I think about it perhaps I should have 🙂
Seems certain now that things are going to steadily improve from here and there is the prospect of meeting up with my family in a few months time. Looking forward to that first beer in my brothers back garden pub (mo mo’s) and meeting up with my mum soon after and the rest of the family soon after that. Will also be good to start meeting up with friends once again (hasn’t been practical or even possible for most of this year).
In years to come when I or others read this, this was the moment the pandemic broke and although there are still a few months to go before we have it under significant control life should get easier from here.
Many thanks to all those people who have had the chance to help with this pandemic. Fantastic efforts from the NHS, doctors, nurses, scientists and many others to get us to this point.
