Open Thread: How's your summer going?

August is here!

I'm feeling refreshed after 10 days offline, and currently back in the UK. We landed on Tuesday morning, relieved for a change of rules meaning we wouldn't have to endure another lockdown. And then, 48 hours later, we were dragged into the ongoing "pingdemic" after someone on our flight tested positive—meaning everyone on the plane is now staring down ten days of quarantine.

Ah well. This is travel, at least for the foreseeable future. Je ne regrette rien.

This weekend I'd love to know "how is your summer going?"

Been away? Staycationing? How’s it going with the kid(s)?

Jump into the comments and let us know.

As ever, I'll go first.
