Christmas mix – Families across Britain will be able to gather in three-household “Christmas bubbles” of any size, the government has announced, bringing warnings from scientists that the plan will almost inevitably see a rise in the number of coronavirus cases.

"If you hit that wall, you have to accept the environment and what you are doing, stay focused and stay in the present.
