Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed this week on Smorgasbord.
It seems that the word of the week is Omicron with increasing cases each day as this new variant makes its presence felt. The governments are teetering on the brink of public popularity by promising that Christmas can still be celebrated by family, but here I think that there will be a lockdown from the first week in January as the results of the get togethers hit home. We shall see what the next week brings but one thing is for sure I am not leaving home without my mask for some considerable time to come.
Whilst I am not convinced that the majority of scientists actually know what is fact and what is fiction, as they don’t seem to be able to agree on much. What I am sure of is that wearing a mask cuts your risk of catching covid, colds and flu, as does washing your hands regularly. Two very simple precautions that some feel is trampling all over their ‘rights’. Unfortunately, not wearing masks tramples all over the rights of those that they come into contact with.
On a lighter note…
We are half way through the Christmas Fair and I hope that it has tempted you to fatten up your TBRs… I plan on taking most of the holidays off with a podcast short story, the Breakfast Show, news of upcoming features in 2022, and of course videos and funnies.
I am going to be reading the books stockpiled on my reader and looking forward to enjoying some great books.
The Twelve Days of Christmas begins on Monday... with a compilation of post of three series from 2018 including the original series with guests who shared their most favourite Christmas Gifts.. I have updated their bios and links and hope they don’t mind me sharing their features again… the guests on Monday are Mary Smith and Jacquie Biggar with food from Carol Taylor.
