I look forward to returning to a complete normal but know that may be some way off. For now, I will say goodbye to a daily lockdown blog. Thank you for reading and for being part of this record of history.
Here is a story about my favourite piece of punctuation.
Was a clap really enough?
This evening marks the last of the nationwide ‘claps for carers’. A moment when, at eight o’clock, people were encouraged to applaud the country’s healthcare workers for all their efforts during the pandemic.
It might be hump day but I’ve found myself inspired this Wednesday!
Do you remember when this was a novelty?
It has been announced that shops are to begin to reopen. Here’s my post-lockdown shopping list.
The challenge is to now allow “are you okay?” to become a mundane greeting again. If we keep nothing else from this, let’s keep awareness of each other’s mental wellbeing.
I hope to celebrate in six months. But who knows how I will be doing it!
Mess is king! Lockdown is a good time for tidying up and rediscovering those half finished stories – but to tidy up, you have to have mess to start with!
