Karen said to Pete. “Don’t worry, you will be allowed out again one day.”
At all seems a little unreal at the moment. I wonder if this is how the public felt in the Phoney War” in the winter of 1939 and spring of 1940?
We know what came after….
I’m not sure if it’s just me but the High Street looked emptier than usual today. I hope that isn’t a sign of things to come…
Karen fell ill on Friday night and we drove home Saturday. I fell ill on Saturday. By this morning it was over. The weekend was filled with two main sources of information: social media, and the TV.
Hence we were unsure of what to expect when venturing out today as so much attention from these sources had been spent on the panic buying in supermarkets and deserted stations etc.
Well we shouldn’t have worried: M&S was full of product and busy, while Sainsbury’s shelves were emptier than usual but we still purchased everything on our list bar getting a shoulder of lamb for Sunday; and the queues weren’t too long either.
I like social media and TV but they clearly offer a very narrow range of realities. I suppose the time to really worry is when these go off because however distorted they are, they’re better than nothing.
Normal service will resume when I’m better.
I don’t think it’s Covid -19, but it isn’t very nice …

Just enough for the newspaper
The spectacle of nature in Kelsey Park
Lunch at Branded: wonderful. Some blue sky and sun as well!
You know what’s the hardest thing about setting up a smart TV?
Fixing the TV’s feet to its base using the tiny supplied screws that have to be inserted and tightened in a very narrow and deep recessed slot. Still, I’ve nothing else to do on this dreary afternoon 🙂
