Back in Tier 3

I can't tell you how good it feels to the the gym open again. Even just a little bit of "the old life" back is a good feeling, regardless of the level of tier your area is in. I get the feeling that the lock down has done the job and as long as the country is careful at Christmas, plus the announcement of the vaccine yesterday, then we should be on the right track. 🤞🏼

Will you have the vaccine?

A very interesting debate I just had on Instagram with @kylemmcgovern. Would you have a vaccine if others depended on it? Initially, I have been quite against the idea as I am a believer in the immune system in humans managing to cope when you are fit and healthy, also the real question is would you take it for others benefit? Essentially, what we have been doing so far is protecting others, so surely we would have it for others? There could be many factors involved. Would you have it if mandatory?

Vaccine Approved

This mornings news was a delight. Finally after a long process, of what apparently can take a decade, a corona virus vaccine has been approved! So so pleased that the vulnerable can be vaccinated and hopefully we can see people not admitted to hospital for covid. Hopefully this can be rolled out as quickly as possible. If I get offered it I will turn it down, in the hope that someone else who really needs it can have it.

Leaving the isolation

Hopefully this will be the last time we have to leave a lockdown. As we have been edging into winter it's certainly felt harder this time round. But now we have alot more to look forward to and to be more optimistic. Enough with this now.

Tough cycle to Wilmslow

Managed a cycle to Wilmslow on my day off. Had to get the train back as it chucked it down 😂

Blackpool was heaving

Visited Blackpool yesterday, to take Alex's Nan out for the day. I have been to Blackpool a few times, once with my flat mates and then once during lock down but I have never seen it so busy. Even after lockdown the place was heaving, many people out and about with their families, I guess making the best of the inability of being able to go abroad. You would have to queue to get into almost any of the attractions, including Sealife, Madam Tussauds and the game arcades. To be honest Blackpool isn't normally my favorite place to go but this time it was actually quite good and a really special day taking Alex's Nan out.

Back in Manchester

Terrible news that this week we lost one of my favourite DJs, Eric Morillo. Saw this guy DJ in so many places over the years :(

Got back at the weekend and of course it was the bank holiday. Went to Freight Island for the HomoElectric afternoon on the Monday night. Normally these are quite hectic parties but now COVID friendly.

Can’t wait to start my new role at MuscleFood, there is going to be an amazing team of people and looking forward to meeting them all.

On my bike

I have been looking around for quite sometime for a bike. I really wanted to spend the time finding the right one. I had been advised to find a hybrid, basically a road/track bike. I tried this Roam 4 2021 out in Suffolk and kind of fell in love with it! Can’t wait to go on cycle days and to include it in my commute.

End of my little WFH break in Suffolk

Loved being back in Suffolk for the past week. An opportunity to see different scenery and catch up with different family and friends. I think I have made a good start at getting back to some level of fitness this week. Drank some good coffee and spent some time with Mylo and the pup that I had to look after for a short while. As the Bank Holiday approaches,  it's time to go back to the city. Looking forward to Freight Island on Monday. I'll post some photos!

Finest Coffee at Folk

Just popped up to Folk.Cafe this morning for a coffee and some breakfast. Being the last day of the Eat out to help out government scheme I took advantage of this.

Spending some time with Mylo

As I am back in Suffolk, I am spending some good quality time with Mylo. I took this photo yesterday before this current storm arrived 🐶

I gave him a hand-strip at the weekend. Border terriers need a hand strip instead of a cut as they have duel coats. The outer coat is the coarse and the protective layer and there is the internal layer that gives him warmth. I had strip him every so often to clear the other coat and make him look all tidy
