At last, all the family have had their two doses of Covid vaccine. We've been very careful with Jasmine being vulnerable but now we've all had two jabs we feel easier about meeting up again, there's light at the end of the tunnel. It's been hard with Daniel and Jasmine living down in Essex and us up here in Yorkshire, it's not as though we've been able to just pop round and have a chat in the garden as other families have been able to do while there's been restrictions in place but now that everything's opened up again and we've taken precautions, we've decided to have a get together.
Daniel and Jasmine finished work last week and are now on a week's annual leave, so they came up after work on Friday and they're staying until Sunday. It's such a long time since we've seen them and it's especially nice them coming this week as it's Mick's birthday on Saturday so they'll be here to celebrate with us.
We're hoping to have a few trips out but that's dependent on the weather. The storms which have been forecast every day since Thursday haven't materialised but we've had a few showers. We've still managed to get out for some walks but really, just spending time together is what we've all been waiting for. It's wonderful having the family together again, even though it's only for a short time.
