I couldn't get booked into the Corner House this year, so booked Abberley a while ago. So used to the Corner House, it feels like I know my way home, so someone might need to spin me in the different direction this year laugh

Ibis and County used to be really cheap years ago, but not now frown Corner House has been great for the last few years, but somewhere new for me to go this year shocked

I'll have to leave at an earlyish time again this year as I have no one to let my dogs out frown

Agreed, I struggled at first with the photo I received, but try saving it to your desktop then opening it with whatever you use (Mac uses Preview) and enlarge it - that worked much better for me. It doesn't seem to translate well to the forum software?

If folk are still finding difficulty I'll ask 'em to send me another pic.

I'm glad you're at the Abberley too Simon, even after me thinking you had booked all the available rooms at the Cornerhouse laugh Will be strange walking to Robs a different way to the usual laugh

As for food, I have no idea with the menu, usually some deep fried mushroom dish to start and a bolognese for mains. Rob calls me boring laugh Desert - yeah, anything laugh

It's started looking, um, interesting. We'll see. We've booked all the hotels on three-day free cancel rates, so if it doesn't work we're only out the cost of the tunnel.

But we have hopes. We're currently both vaccinated against covid - thrice - and shingles and flu. So we'll probably come down with yellow fever or dengue or something... but hopefully the bug that bites us dies a horrible death.

Things progress; we have about fifty pages of documentation, and as of noon we're covid free (can't think why - obviously three vaccinations had nothing to do with it, right?) and we start moving at dark o'clock tomorrow. Then we're under house arrest until we get the two-day test results... if they're fine, so are we, but if they're not we're either under more house arrest, or we may leave. Only none of transit systems will have us and neither will France. It's all ein bisschen stressig...

Neil if it's any consolation you've done the worst bits - the actual travel knitty-gritty should be fine. The officials in our experience (we did Spain in July and Dubai in October) have all been great and just glad that you've made their job a lot easier and they can get you on that plane.

We didn't even receive our day 2 test kits until day 3 so it was day four when they got sent away from a priority post-box (google where your nearest is). My daughter in Holland reckons this is a common occurrence and as long as you complete a test they're happy even if a day or so late.

Well, we've made it as far as Folkstone... got a bollocking from the immigration person who insisted that coming back was a really silly idea and they were trying to discourage it and none of the tests worked and blah blah blah - I restrained myself from asking (a) why they just didn't put that at the top of the covid page at gov.uk and (b) then what was the point of the two-day bloody expensive test?

And the French immigration (emigration? exmigration?) bod didn't like that our UK passports were suspiciously free of EU entry stamps, and insisted on seeing Anita's DE passport and my residency permit...

Jobsworths. As if you don't have enough to do in preparation
- you were only following instructions. What's the point of a one-person crusade? "welcome to the UK".
Quite the contrary of our experiences.

I didn't realise you weren't flying...
