Here we are again

Going into a another lockdown.

Starting 5th Nov- 2nd Dec we are going into another lockdown. Except it’s not being called a lockdown but all hospitality and non-essential businesses/shops will be closed.

There has been much gnashing of teeth, wailing and hand-wringing at this prospect I suspect mainly by the people that chose to either ignore or play “fast and loose” with previous restrictions. Anyway enough of this.


I ordered 2 DNA test kits this week, one for me and one for one of my daughters. We have been researching family history off and on for a few years now and it seems that a DNA test is the best way forward. It will be fascinating to see my roots and also my daughters as she only gets 50% of her DNA from me. I have managed to trace several strands of my origins which are mainly the Isle-of-Wight going back as far as 1732 (probably further back but records beyond this time are vague and hit-n-miss accurate) and Gloucestershire to the early 1800’s (again prior to this records are hit-n-miss as to accuracy) Hopefully the DNA tests will fill those gaps.

More on both these issues to come no doubt.
