dear diary : the lens has changed

Tags: , , |

Self Isolation, Day 19 Dear Diary, As humans, we seem to be in unfamiliar territory. Yes, there have been famines and wars, but those took place in a different era, before everything got so...Big. So Overblown. Globalised. Impregnated with Greed. As I observe the story of the Covid-19 pandemic unfold, there is societal chaos and

Tags: , , |

Self Isolation, Day 16 Dear Diary, I'm sorry that I have not been as regular writing to you as I intended. It's just that life has been a little turned upside-down in the past couple of weeks. Discombobulated. Deconstructed. Disrupted. The people living in the UK have been told to stay home due to a

Dear Diary: is this like that REM song?

Tags: , , , , |

Why yes, aged-Genexers huddled into a little self-protective fetal position, it is. Self-isolation, Day 04, 05, 06, 07. It's all happening folks. Now that self-isolation is in full swing (for all of us), it means limiting all contact, not leaving the house if possible, and becoming OCD about washing our hands. I'm not sure yet

Dear Diary : So much change, so much freedom

Tags: , , , |

Self Isolation Day 3. Today started exceedingly badly. My son was told he would be taken out of school a day early to mitigate the risk of the virus, and while he didn't say how miserable he felt about the changes in his routine, he acted it out through tears, screams and anger. When our

I have enough nuts for the most well-resourced squirrel, fruit and veg only for 10 days. The freezer is full of veggie sausages and burgers,

Dear Diary: Diving into Self-Isolation

Tags: , , , |

Today was my first full day at home, leaving the house only to deposit my son to his (unbelievably) still open school. While one foot has solidly and shoe-lessly jumped into the apocalyptic unknown of virtual everything,  life as 'normal' seems to continue in the playground. No wonder we are all so confused. Because I

Dear Diary : Social distancing Day One

Tags: , , , |

Of all the places one would expect to find oneself after proclaiming to the world the self-isolation is inevitable, here I am waiting in a snot-infested pharmacy at the good ol’ Royal Free Hospital. Never mind that I woke up at 5am to be here when the place opened. Never mind that I was told
