The papers, football and Quality Street: a traditional Boxing Day
The new lockdown…
I expected the streets to be fairly empty when going around the corner to get my Sunday paper following Boris’ announcement yesterday evening, but that was far from the case. M&S was full with people forming long queues and the streets seemed busier than usual.

Fake news in Beckenham High Street?
A day of mixed messages from the media. So I took some respite at Beckenham Green.

No sport, no travel, no seaside, no cinema, no eating out. Just a relentless stream of conjecture and very limited – but addictive – information.
A very strange day where I could not settle.
The sun came out for the afternoon and was welcome. The first hot day where I could sunbathe. But with Boris in intensive care and another 854 people lost to Covid-19 it was nigh on impossible to completely relax and enjoy. Let’s hope that tomorrow brings better news.
A little distraction of current – transient – issues by things that have withstood the test of time.
