  1.   Not sure if that covers fish cakes or not. It seems impossible to actually work out what you can or can't bring in. Here is the link
  2. I miss smoked haddock too, but bizarrely fish is one of the things you can bring back.  
  3. Really sorry to hear about all of you that had to cancel trips back to the U and apologies to whoever I said I would update about travelling to the UK, couldn't face dealing with TT on a mobile.    We made it back by the "good fortune" of having to be back by the 10th so I could go to a funeral on the 13th and I'm very glad I got back and saw almost everyone I wanted to. Not so glad I caught a stinking cold, worst I've had in years (after being triple & flu jabbed!). Christmas with my mum was cancelled due to a positive covid test (not me), poor mum had xmas day on her own, again!    Was a bit of a bummer when all the rules changed and it seemed we would have to quarantine on return to Germany. Luckily were able to change the the chunnel booking and travel back on Tuesday once the restriction was lifted, then only needed the lateral flow test to get into France, £300 saved on PCR tests, hooray. But holy shit, the paperwork and stress are not for the faint-hearted.
  4.   that's what annoys me the most. I have no problem with testing per se, it's just that the UK policies often seem so incoherent that it's difficult to believe it's much more than a money-making exercise (most likely for those that already have so much money they don't know what to do with it) designed to cause maximum inconvenience.    @kaffeemitmilch will try and remember to post an update as requested.
  5. Not back until the new year -assuming I don't get stuck there - so not sure how much help that will be, everything's bound to have changed by then!    ps the certificate can also be in French or Spanish (iirc). 
  6. Yes it should be - so long as the certificate is also in English. This is what I am using to travel later this week. 
  7. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Applies to one's hairdresser as well! 
  8. The test to depart is free here in Germany. The day 2 test is not free and must be bought from one of  BoJo’s mates' companies the approved list of providers. There is a link to the list on the government website. Depending on which one you buy, you can either administer it yourself, or get one where somebody does it for you (or watches you do it, I can't remember).
