Exit from Lockdown... Wales

So the plan for Wales to come out of its mothballs / box / bubble wrap / cold storage / lockdown is as follows, with my own views in brackets and itallics

Here are some key dates:

March 13: Stay at home requirement lifted - Five mile rule comes in 
(basically what I am doing now in my support bubble)

March 15: Hairdressers reopen and more pupils back in school 
(I do my own hair, don't have kids, but at least less stress for parents)

March 22: Supermarkets can sell non-essential items
(while a good thing, I think other shops should also open... or it's not fair)

March 27: You can travel anywhere in Wales 
(so excited about this one... long drives ahead! - while this is a great thing to happen, no one from other parts of the UK will be able to come in to Wales, and no one from Wales can go outside of Wales)

April 12: All shops can reopen and all pupils return to schools 
(all shops should open on March 22nd)

Mid to late April: Wales is considering reopening some outdoor hospitality and possibly some gyms

Not before May 17: Flights resume at Cardiff Airport

Mark Drakeford sat down with WalesOnline for 15 minutes this morning and talked through his thinking 
(he actually thinks?, 😱 I am shocked!).

While Mark Drakeford has given these dates, it is all down to what we, the people do, and down to the how the virus behaves.

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems. The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK. David Cameron is to stand down ( real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship. One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today ' We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week. We ne

Had first part of my vaccine - edited 14th March

So, Saturday I had the first part of the Covid vaccine . I had the Oxford AstraZeneca one. Don't get me wrong, I am over joyed to have been called up for it, but the side effects since are not too good, but as people keep telling me, "it's a sign it is working", geee, thanks for that! Before I go any further I want to say a massive thank you to AstraZeneca and also the University of Oxford, and the Swansea Bay NHS health board for getting this out. During yesterday afternoon my arm started hurting and then I started feeling as if I had a head cold coming on. Later in the evening my mind got a bit foggy. Day two since first part of vaccine jab,  I was woken at about 5am this morning. Feeling worse,  , woke up in a pool of sweat, and somehow managed to squash my pillow up and out of its pillowcase in the night. The sweat I could have done without, it was horrible waking up to that, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, waking up in sweat just made me have to get up s

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament. At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back. UK regions such as Wales , Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the rep ort, by a network association of European regions. This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly , and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys . These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding. The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2:  #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter
