One of these things is not like the other

That’s either the most advanced pair of knickers I’ve ever seen, or teapot design has had a radical overhaul.

Being worn by a lady but it's 100% food grade!

I was shocked to hear on the news today that the UK has instituted a travel ban on its citizens, and anyone returning to the UK from overseas must quarantine for 14 days. We have not been able to leave Australia since March 2020 without extenuating circumstances and I assumed other countries would be doing likewise.Same with hotel quarantine. Tennis players in Australia at present for the Australian Open have been whinging about being locked down in quarantine for 14 days; I'm actually surprised that the event is proceeding.

Now I  understand why I found it so hard to convince booking.com that I couldn't actually travel to Scotland last July. Airbnb were really easy to deal with - I just had to point them to the Smart Traveller website and they could see the travel ban was in place, and my booking was refunded almost straight away, but booking.com kept insisting I could travel. Right up until the hotels where I was booked to stay cancelled the bookings themselves.
