Contributor: Mark As a co-founder of this blog it is fair to say I have neglected my commitments to providing updates. I am really pleased others in the group have found the will to carry on and write something. Collectively, those residents on the street helped form a month – 31 days – of unbroken … Continue reading Day 62: A blog of hope with a free cut-out and keep Covid-19 travel mask
Day 50: ‘Over the weekend I saw a few articles, one from Italy and one from Greece – both of which made me embarrassed for our country’
Contributor: Jennifer I haven’t written on here for a little while, as each time I went to write something I found it to be a rant of disbelief or I dint see it as being noteworthy – i.e. nothing is different. However, I’ve just noticed that in itself is different. We have all become used … Continue reading Day 50: ‘Over the weekend I saw a few articles, one from Italy and one from Greece – both of which made me embarrassed for our country’
Contributor: Chris: So week 7 of lockdown begins and I guess it’s time to reflect on the days gone by and the impact they have had on my psyche. I try not to count down the days until shielding may or may not end as it only causes frustration for myself and those closest to … Continue reading Day 43: An Adventure Beyond The Front Garden
Contributor: Tony: I’m having a crisis at the moment. Not one that’s going to stop my world turning, but one that is a strong factor in my thinking presently. I have been accepted to do a MA in Creative Writing at DMU this coming September, but I am now not sure that I want to … Continue reading Day 37: I’m having a crisis at the moment.
Contributor: Jo: In these days of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, I have repeatedly walked the same routes, and watched the daily unfolding of spring around us, both in my garden and on my walks to the local parks. I consider if I have ever previously had time to take note of each stage of the blossom … Continue reading Day 36: time to stand and stare
Contributor: Mark My attempts to keep fit and stay in shape in lockdown may have backfired. This morning I was on course to run 100 miles in April. After completing a six-mile jog this morning, the goal is now in tatters. It did occur to me when I set out at 9am that I didn’t … Continue reading Day 34: ‘My attempts to keep fit and stay in shape in lockdown may have backfired’
Day 31: ‘It’s always great to see the solitary of the street and is becoming an important marker in the weekly lockdown routine’
Contributor: Mark The weekly ritual of celebrating the NHS never fails to draw people onto the street. I took this photograph from the velux window in the loft. I did my best to show all those who came out and make some noise for our brilliant key workers. What the image doesn’t capture is the … Continue reading Day 31: ‘It’s always great to see the solitary of the street and is becoming an important marker in the weekly lockdown routine’
Day 30: ‘Get out when one can, embrace nature and appreciate what we have on our doorstep, don’t wallow, take one day at a time’
Contributor: Jacky: I was on annual leave last week, so when going downstairs I just swerved my work kit on the dining room table and didn’t log on! Luckily the weather was mostly fine and did some jobs around the house and garden (I now have a mini greenhouse with some seedlings in) and some sitting … Continue reading Day 30: ‘Get out when one can, embrace nature and appreciate what we have on our doorstep, don’t wallow, take one day at a time’
Contributor: Jo: During virtual coffee with a good friend last weekend she asked me “what have you achieved today?” As she went on to express her frustration and boredom at life under lockdown, and how she was rapidly running out of things to do, it occurred to me that firstly we were not experiencing lockdown … Continue reading Day 29: ‘A degree in pottering’
