    The real highlight though was someone who lectured me about even trying to travel to Cornwall in the midst of a pandemic!

    Well, my attempts were futile.
    I even spoke to three cottage owners who wouldn't even shift from their Xmas price by more than 10%. My tactic was to offer them their low season price (normally about a 1/4 of their Xmas price) but not one of them was interested. One even went as far as saying it was derisory despite me pointing out that he'd be happy for me to pay that if I booked a mere two weeks later!

    My heart bleeds.
    If you don't have anything worth saying, why say it?

    Actually it was worth saying, as it is exactly what I suspect many others were thinking.
