Whilst I am very much looking forward to seeing my sister tomorrow, I do have some concerns about the whole trip, the journey up there and back being one of them, as I've mentioned.
We're staying overnight in a budget hotel - we've not stayed in a hotel since the last time we went up there, 2 years ago, just before the start of Covid restrictions. I am a bit concerned about the standard of cleaning and the amount of people there may possibly be in the hotel. All I can do is take some antiseptic wipes to clean surfaces, if I'm at all worried about whether the room has been properly sanitised, and wear masks/keep our distance in public areas of the hotel.
I will enjoy seeing my sister - and having a big hug with her. She doesn't go out much, as she herself has underlying health issues and is very careful. I'll also enjoy seeing her son and daughter and their partners, as it's been longer than 2 years since I saw them. However, they're all young people, in their late 20s/early 30s and, unlike my sister, they all go out to work and socialise. At least one of them has had Covid (sister's son had it during the first year of Covid) and they're all vaccinated, but it seems there's no guarantee that you can't catch it again, or if you've been jabbed, although if you do it does seem to be a milder infection. So I am a bit concerned all the same. Thing is, we're a very 'huggy' family, so everyone is going to want to hug - even me!
I'm sure it will all be fine (fingers crossed), they wouldn't be seeing us if they weren't sure they didn't have the infection, and husband and I will test again (our tests this morning were clear) when we're back home.
I'm probably worrying over nothing, but that's me all over.
