There s...

Re: New Lockdown

If anyone wants to mix with another household when the regulations are relaxed on Xmas Eve/Day and New Year's Eve/Day a metakinisi is still required. Option six (exercise).

I travelled out of my municipality last week to buy Christmas goodies from the British Food Shop in Ag Nik. I took the precaution of writing my reasons fo...
