    T'Bird, I got mine that way (dreams of a French trip) but hadn't realised they only have a short life. Never mind, all the spade work has been done and I just have to renew it when necessary. The good thing is that I have had the accepted AZ variant.

    That's great @Topbird, thanks very much. I already have an on line " account" with our doctors surgeries, for repeat  prescriptions, is that what you mean by registering an account? We don't plan to go anywhere actually like festivals or " do's" or abroad etc but thought it might be handy just to have one, just in case. Like LB, I hadn't realised they were only valid for 30 days though. Do we have to have one to go into pubs or restaurants?

    It's come out nice and sunny and warm this afternoon. We've spent some time in the garden dead heading and tidying up.  Spoke to our neighbours about when he is due to cut his big hedge down( remember last year when he did it whilst we were away at mums? We came back to a lot of damaged and broken flower stems!). He works away a lot so it will be in three weeks time( he's due back at work tomorrow) , so he said he would be round to our house, with his gadget ( 🙄😮) , and do it from our side. A piece of tarpaulin will be held underneath to catch all the cut pieces this time...

    Hazel, we have never been asked in pubs/restaurants for Covid passes. When your neighbour puts the tarpaulin down make sure he doesn't crush/break your plants underneath it.

    I am green with envy. Just had a text and a picture from my sis and bro-in-law at their van in France. They finally made it out there and she says that the atmosphere is very relaxed.

    Evening everyone, 
    It turned out to be a very warm sunny afternoon. Did a bit of weeding and deadheading. Its still quite warm now. 
    Do hope your garden doesn't get damaged @Songbird-1 when your neighbour cuts the hedge. 
    I haven't seen any snails in the garden this year either. 

    Footie has finished, now OH is watching Rugby. 
    Hope your sister and BIL have a lovely holiday @Ladybird4
  • LB how lovely for some of your family to be relaxing in France.  It will bring back memories of when you were last there.   Hazel I hope all goes well with the hedge cutting.  Goodnight everyone.

    Hazel - Individual companies / event organisers / pubs etc can decide whether or not they require Covid 'passports'. Generally not.

    We're going to a music festival next week where quite a few people will be camping on site and socialising for 4 or 5 days. Understandable the organisers want either proof of vaccinations or negative test results before allowing people on site.

    You'll probably still need an 'NHS login' - but the enhanced proof of ID will be fast tracked if they can link the NHS App with the App or other system you use for repeat prescriptions etc. I suggest you just get the NHS App and get yourself set up. Then it's easy to get a 30 day pass whenever you need one.

    LB - hope sis & BIL  have a great break. In view of the latest announcement re Spanish islands we're still resigned to UK holidays this year. Too risky on the quarantine front and the tests just make it too expensive.

    Yes, we'll be careful when the hedge gets cut. OH and I plan to hold the tarpaulin high up as the neighbour does the sheering,so we'll keep it well out of the way of the plants.

    Thanks for the info @Topbird and LB re the NHs App and other info etc. I can understand them wanting the passports at festivals, don't think we'll be going anywhere like that lol!

    LB, good that your sis and family have finally made it to their holiday destination. Hope they all have a super time. 

    It's still very muggy here tonight, hope we sleep okay. On that note, I'm signing out for today. Night all.

    Ante, I was happy to hear that you had had more rain in the night. That will certainly help all the crops. Hope that you had a good day at the cottage too. All those Brian free gardeners can thank their lucky stars, I think that they must have all migrated to mine and Biglad's gardens - and their homeless relatives, the Cyrils. I have quite a few lacy leaves on plants but I noticed that my hedgehog had been around, there was a little calling card on my drive, so I hope he/she gets the munchies in the night.
    Hazel, I am signing out too. See you all tomorrow. Sweet dreams.
