Much of the UK is living under severe restrictions now, with some places in local lockdowns. The area where I live is unchanged from where it’s always been… but I think a national lockdown could be imposed soon. I’m trying to make the most of my freedom whilst I still have it, continuing to be very careful with hand washing and mask wearing, of course. But the figures don’t look good. France is currently faring the worst in Europe, and today president Macron announced a second national lockdown for the country. I think I will manage to squeeze in one brief trip away before school starts again after half term and we in the UK are all told to stay at home once again.
