Lockdown – 2020 – 21 – It really has been 3 weeks

Carrots and Sticks

Difficult to see where governments are going to find carrots in the short term as the pandemic continues to bring us all to our knees.

The novelty of not doing may well be wearing off for many and in households where the domestic entertainment available was scant to start with, patience may be a little thin.

However, the Easter weekend, for those of us connected by social media, brought some entertaining decorated eggs, thought-provoking religious services, an address from Her Majesty and beautiful music. The children next door enjoyed an Easter egg hunt in their back garden. DH and I enjoyed a glass of wine with their parents across the boundary walls.

My walk took in a landmark white cherry tree in full bloom. I won the scrabble. DH is enjoying getting to cycle routes while roads are less busy.
