Now, i am assuming she just gave that as an excuse to cover up something else she was driving around for during lockdown. I fiind it hard to believe someone would actually drive 100 miles for a McDonalds, I'm fairly sure whichever route she took to get to North Yorkshire, there'd have been other McDonalds!
After this is over, I will have to stop saying "avoid it like the plague!", turns out we don't go out of our way to avoid them.
Well this aged like fine wine.
F1 didn't start until July, four months delayed. Euros 2020, The 2020 Olympics, and indeed Eurovision were all cancelled and are set to be held in 2021 instead.
I'm very doubtful the olympics will go ahead in 2021 either, given the new much more infectious strains that have popped up everywhere. Eurovision seem confident they can go ahead this year, although some acts probably will appear via video line.
They really should have been able to do that last year.

Our health service, the NHS, are also giving mixed messages on how badly affected certain bits of the population are. For example, I have multiple sclerosis, which in simple terms means my immune system is already stuck in overdrive, to the point where it attacks the brain & spinal cord at semi-random times. My local doctors surgery started by saying it makes me more susceptible to COVID19, and now they're just "no more at risk than anyone else, due to the already max-alert immune system", they've mellowed back out to "probably more at risk". So who knows what the actual truth is, because I do not. Will also be interesting to see how high on the vaccine list i get with my illness given all the mixed advice.
I think last year they left it too late until they made the call on what to do, so it couldn't be held correctly in any form due to lack of time to arrange what needed arranging for the delivery.
F1 will go ahead, they have a strict coronavirus policy that worked fairly well in 2020 (albeit 3 drivers got sick during the season).
Eurovision will, like Redirect Left said, probably have to let some participants perform live in a separate venue in their home country, especially faraway nations like Australia, Israel, and Azerbaijan.
About 150 people decided a great place to rent out for a wedding party was a closed Jewish orthodox school. In a twisted fate of irony, the former principal of that school, Rabbi Avrahom Pinter, died last year because of COVID19.
There was even a case of police being injured in the rich area of London called Knightsbridge, just around the corner from the rather famous Harrods store, as they tried to break up about 200 people celebrating. So even the rich folks aren't doing things right now.
Despite being told to stay at home and not leave the house for non-essential reasons, as soon as the sun comes out, everyone goes to the beach, this was Brighton last sunday, a seaside resort in south England.
Wales have decided they're having none of it, and keep placing road police on entries to major tourist destinations in Wales. Seen
here is a car patrolling the entry to part of the Snowdonia National Park. Quite a nice picture actually.
You can guarantee these are the people that'll complain the most if lockdown is extended!
I can only hope that people in other countries are taking this more seriously than the UK population seem to be doing so.
In Australia they get fined .. so what they don't pay the fines and still go break the rules again and again. Jail is only answer for those who disobey. Get same sentence that we would get if we walked the streets threatening people with a knife or gun.
Any reading this who have that don't car attitude .. remember this .. if you get the virus and go home to your parents they will get the virus from you and they will most like DIE from it. Your grandparents will definitely DIE from your stupidity. Some of your friends who have existing health issues will most likely DIE because of you.
