    Well that's already prompted me to knock one more off, restoring Surrey to 100% and getting my first review of the year in (albeit an update of a 'holding' one). There could be hope for 2021 yet!

    Happy to report that Mrs Pangolin and I were jabbed last week with no effects other than a brief sore arm. Apparently our place was doing AstroZeneca in the morning and Pfizer (which we had) later in...
