Lockdown Diary – 2020 – 79 – And Again

Hair clippers (human)

DH had his second in-house haircut last night. He then took part in a zoom meeting where he felt quite at home because the other two chaps had also just had their 2nd in-house haircuts. He had also headed out for a croquet match where all three lawns were in operation. I walked around the block and posted a couple of cards. Oh, and I turned that marmalade pulp into marmalade – another ‘And again’ moment.

Taking the Scotsman vouchers round to the newsagent this morning, I passed the Earl Grange coffee shop. Opened just before Christmas, this little place was doing well until the virus arrived. However, humour in adversity – their notice to prospective burglars reads No money or scones… The premises have been re-organised so perhaps a takeout service is coming?

Edinburgh south is blanketed in a light misty drizzle. It’s warm, too.

In the writing world, AC Williams new pocket novel for DC Thomson is out in two weeks. Title is Under Green Skies. Try big supermarkets and newsagents beside the magazines.
