And here's one sent by a colleague on a Romanian rig site . They appear to be having a good week to.

Look closely, see if you can see the obvious problem ......

Well it's a little bit chilly & slightly breezey with a light drizzle in Edinburgh. My wee dog was not at all keen on his morning walk. He really should learn to count his blessings.
Stay safe Alez & I hope you get back to Terra Firma soon.

If I were there I'd need to be on scopolamine, dramamine and a few other 'amine meds.

It's really picked up some more now. Somewhere around 50 odd feet waves. You can really feel the G force as you walk, stagger and bounce down the corridors when the rig is on the rise. I'd post another vid but there's too much spray on the windows now to be able to see much. Plus it's getting dark. Bloody noisy when a big one hits as well. Yo ho ho and all that pirate milarky p8

I now currently have the pleasure of being trapped outside the UK in Romania. Think I'm going to be here quite a while. The joys of life.

No, quarantine in the designated hotel was horrendous as you know. Currently offshore. All forms of problems on rig is delaying job.
Due to ' covid ' UK is subject to multiple travel bans both into and out of the country. It's a mess. I doubt I'll see home before end February. Currently I have been home for 2 weeks in the last 9.

No idea. Don't think they have started as they have pretty much not started in any EU country.

Vaccination has started in almost all EU countries and in the UK. Israel leads however, at least on January 4th:
