It seemed to be getting better…then as we all start to get out and try to reboot the economy …. it got worse.
Perhaps unsurprisingly we relaxed a little bit too much and gave the dreaded COVID-19 a chance to resurge. You only have to look in the local supermarket to see a lack of social distancing.
Now we can only meet in groups of six or less (with certain exceptions). The devolved governments in the UK have slightly different rules so you have to keep track.
Local lockdowns are looming in greater numbers and once again the tourism and hospitality trades are holding their breath.
A lot of people are being affected by the consequences of this pandemic. The normality of a year ago seems a distant memory.
Wherever you might be reading this please think about your actions and can I encourage you to keep a check on family, friends and neighbours, both physically and mentally.
