Summer holiday objectives have been firmly locked in our sights for months. But the target is blurring and slipping away. For our house the hope of following through with our bookings abroad next month are fading. Despite the rallying calls of the airlines lobby and the national tourism bodies overseas, the dark shadow of 14 days quarantine on the way back is a pill too bitter to swallow.

We make an annual pilgrimage to Kalkan in Turkey every summer and this year was to be extra special as daughters' boyfriends were coming with us. I was particularly looking forward to being in the company of some lads for once.

And while the possibility of getting there remains real - Easyjet have not yet cancelled the flight to Dalaman from Belfast - the thought of spending all that money and once we get there for it to be restricted and dulled by all the vital safety precautions, and not to be as brilliant as we would like it to be for everybody, has no appeal.
