Beyond ‘freedom day’ and the confusing new green ‘watchlist’, the basic truth is that overseas holidays are off the agenda for most Brits this summer.


I certainly won't be jetting off anywhere any time soon – irrespective of Covid-19 travel restrictions, I’m 7.5 months pregnant and being ‘in the family way’ (or up-the-stick as a colleague delightfully put it earlier this week) means I've been staring down the barrel of a holiday-less summer – home or abroad – since the word 'pregnant' showed up on the test. No false holiday hopes for me.
