Being under 50 and healthy I am probably last on the list and rightly so. Having said that living with a nurse who is working as a vaccinator as well as having a daughter working as a care worker of the elderly I am at higher risk of catching the bloody virus. My other daughter is still at school studying A levels and they have had a few cases too.

Not that I can get out of the front door at the moment as after pinging a back muscle I walk like I need a zimmer.

Being that I am under 50 with quite a way to go, why are fecking sun life sending me one or two letters a week trying to flog me over fifties life insurance?

We are in a similar boat. 3 sons in their 20's at home. Going out for 'socially distanced' walks (?) with friends and girl friends.

I keep getting ads for Luxury retirement apartments overlooking Clapham common and Battersea park @ £1000000 ea. As if, I'd have moved to Maui!

Well I'm 70, live in South West London and not a clue when I'll be called. That's fine this general indicator website shows early February anyway https://www.omnicalculator.com/health/vaccine-queue-uk. I last sailed Boxing Day at Hayling Island.

I had the vaccine last Wednesday.

Slightly sore arm but not enough to stop me sailing in 30 kts the next day.
