The rumors on the radio that lockdown will soon be lifted turn out to be true. Nearly half a million jabs given yesterday and 22% of the population have had at least one dose. With some signs the worst of this wave is past the President announced that the ban on travelling more than six miles from home will end this Sunday. Two weeks after that, on May 19th , restaurants will be allowed to start serving at tables outside. On June 9th foreign travel with proof of vaccination will start up again. All remaining restrictions, pandemic willing, will come off at the end of June in time for the holiday season. I'm betting that the villagers will ignore the finer details of this timetable and get back to business as usual next week. Our second dose is still scheduled for Tuesday.
For Sophie and her family the important news is that we will soon be able to go back to our walks along the banks of the river and even more importantly head off to the drive thru bakers . There is curly croissant ends in the family divas not too distant future.
