Pleased about that Supersal. My niece who actually tests people for the virus has still to wait another couple of weeks before she gets the jab.

Laura, delighted you have your own home now.

I had my jab today. It was very efficient and organised.

I am an auntie! My sister has just had a lovely baby boy, yet to be named, but both are doing well. It's nice to have some positive news amongst all the doom and gloom on the news.

I've had a phone call with my 2 dates for the Pfizer jab - next Weds morning, and the last Weds in April. :D

Update: my nephew is to be called Hamish. They do live in Edinburgh, so the name is not unusual there, what I find a bit strange is my sister used to have a dog called Hamish, who went with her then partner some years ago when they split up. Shades of Joey calling her dog after Frieda's husband!

Supersal, delighted you are an aunt and like the name. I do think it is quite popular for both dogs and humans and your sister obviously likes it! I remember my joy when my sister gave birth to my nephew and hope you get much joy from your little nephew.

Abbeybufo, glad you have the dates for your jab. Didn't realise they gave both dates at once.

Audrey, I don’t think they give both dates at once everywhere. SLOC had his dates both given him, so I was expecting it when I got my call, but my aunt in Esher has had her first jab and was told she’d be contacted with the second date. I’ll be ringing her after I’ve actually had the first, to see if she’s been told it yet. It must be a question of how each area is arranging things.

My mum, dad, uncle and various other relatives have all had their first jabs, but no-one in our area's been given a date for the second jab as yet. I suppose it'd be too sensible for every area to do things the same way :lol: .

I've just got the date for my first jab (tomorrow) but no indication about the second one.

Now...my SIL was given a first jab before the policy was changed and he was given an appointment for the second jab in 3 weeks (which is being honoured). A friend who lives in the same Health Authority area has just had her first jab and has not been given a second appointment. My daughter got a first jab under the "using up" of spare doses system and was told she'd only get a second dose under the same "using up" system - at any point from 3 weeks after her original jab.

Locally, both my BIL and my sister had first jabs, he on age eligibilty, she because his appointment was at the end of the 12 hours so they had doses to use up. He's been given a second appointment and she's been told she'll be sent one. That seems to relate to him already being in the system (ie the "system" booked both appointments when he booked the first one) and my sister not being in the sytem (ie she was given a jab ad hoc).

So nothing complicated or confusing there then.

Changing the subject a bit, I've been having one of my periodic dips into Ebay's antiquarian books section. A dilapidated copy of 1816 "Culpeper's Family Herbal" with hand coloured plates arrived yesterday. (I'm a sucker for hand coloured illustrations.) I started on the paper repairs today only to discover that it's actually 2 books that have no connection to each other bound together. The second one is an 1817 "The New Family Receipt-Book", which is collectable in its own right. Added to which it's in the range that I collect and not one that I have. I certainly feel pretty happy about that!

What a great surprise, Annied! I don't collect cookery/ household books myself, but I do have quite a few, and know several people who are serious collectors, so I know these things can cost silly money.

I should actually have realised, but I think I was so mesmerised by the idea of the 40 hand coloured plates in a quarto book, that I didn't study all the pictures as carefully as I should have! In my defence, I did read the description in full and I think the seller hadn't realised they were two separate books. The way he wrote, it sounded as though it was all by Culpeper and simply in two parts.

I think I'd have to class myself as a serious collector, particularly of antiquarian cookery books, as I have so many of them now, nearly all picked up in a parlous state and rebound. You're right about them costing silly money; when I checked how much it would cost me to replace them in their rebound condition if the house should burn down, I ended up phoning my insurers to check I was sufficiently covered! My biggest problems are that I can't resist a bargain and I can't bear to part with any of them. I now own four Mrs Raffald's for example. My excuse is that they're all different editions.

The silly thing is that if you buy a 200+ year old book in spanking condition having paid an eye watering price for it, you can't actually read it as the leather will be so dry and brittle that the hinges will quickly crack and that will immediately devalue it considerably. Mine aren't worth nearly as much as one still with the original binding and in fine condition, but once rebound, I've definitely enhanced the value and I can use them as much as I choose with no worries about the condition deteriorating.
