This made me laugh (from Twitter, repeated in today's paper):

" Do not risk lives by meeting in situations where you are not spending money."

More or less sums up the current approach, doesn't it?

Or this, which is along similar lines as our Santa theme:

"The Seven Dwarfs have been advised that as of Monday they can only meet in groups of six. One of them isn't Happy."

You'll be cheering us up next at the Village Social Club.

That's the building next to our Doctor's Surgery which has been seized back by the NHS to use as a Coronavirus Assessment Centre.

That reminds me of a recent cartoon in my newspaper:

Two climbers have just made it to the top of a hill and are gazing out at the vista. One turns to the other and says  - "On a clear day you can see our nearest covid testing centre."

There is a lot of concern about pantomimes this year.

Snow White and the Five Dwarfs may not be too popular.

Ali Baba and the five thieves sounds a bit of a no-go too.

Cinderella will be under curfew and have to be home by 10.00pm.

Aladdin will have make sure his lamp is properly sanitised.

Puss in Boots may be OK if Boots last that long or it could change to Puss in Marks and Spencer.

Treasure Island may be on the quarantine list by Christmas.

Beauty and the Beast and Goldilocks and the Three Bears are the best choices.

Some people may be relieved if they have an excuse not to spend Christmas with relatives.
The Queen's traditional big family Christmas lunch at Sandringham might be scuppered.

My neighbours are making  the most of it, we have been away for a few days and come back to that lot supposedly  talking, all talking at once in the garden,  I am surprised anyone knows what the subject is,  but I must say there were 3 birthdays within 6 days so they are making the most of it, feeling as if " thank God for the rule of 6" coming in

Take care

Louisa and All

The UK situation will become very serious if the daily infection numbers continue to grow.

Reports on today's news indicate sections of society are still living it up, so some will take the health consequences.

Look after yourselves and each other, Mark
