Well another month has passed us by here at Oasis Central and what a month it’s been with probably the biggest U turn the government has made so far which for once I am pleased to endorse. The students of 2020 have had such upheaval, they deserve to receive their teacher assessed results rather than those produced by a flawed computer algorithm! According to the Guardian there has been 12 U turns by the government unless you know otherwise!
As I rummage through the Oasis archives I think of this time last year and of our outing to the 1940’s event at the Mid Norfolk Railway at Dereham, and what was meant to be an annual event in the Oasis calendar before that rotten Covid-19 came along and spoilt things! It was such a lovely day with a good turn out of ladies, partners and friends.
We had another good Zoom meeting (despite Serena’s absence) on the 15th of the month. 14 people took part. It was good see that that Carole was recovering well from her back operation and Geri from a repair to her carotid artery, following a minor stroke. There was lots of interesting conversation taking place as usual and thanks again to Petra for arrange this.
On Friday 21st, a lovely sunny, if a little windy day saw a visit to East Ruston Vicarage Gardens, just around the corner from Stalham, organised by Theresa which proved to be a great success. See post
Of course, being a lady of financial means has meant that while you were all on lockdown I was able to get out and about to all those places other people couldn’t. So I thought I would share with you my holiday snaps. Have you got any lockdown snaps to share with us?
We had a lovely socially distanced lunch in a local pub recently to celebrate Vicky birthday. This was the first meal we had had away from home since February. In these unusual times in which we live, we have now taken to not removing anything from our diary for at least 14 days after they have taken place in case we get a call from Track and Trace!
Finally it seems a foreign holiday is really unlikely to happen this year, unless like me your a lady of financial means or your willing to risk a 14 day quarantine on your return. So it’s a chance to explore the wonderful countryside and cities of the UK on a Staycation. As your standing in your holiday home, motorhome, caravan or tent looking out the window doing the washing up, we can all dream of what it was like before Covid-19.
Keep safe, Beccie x

Touch (olive) wood it is Zante for me for seven days starting Wednesday. Should we have to self isolate on our return it will be a question of lots more Anna time. Hope the weather has improved for a cossie sunbathe.
Anna has discovered lippy does leave a mark on her face nappy.
