The COVID-19 diaries: questions


This is one of the bonuses of the lockdown – I now get to go on walks with my kids again. Before they were too busy hanging out with their own friends.

I have never been a big fan of Easter -– it’s not a very diabetic-friendly celebration – and I get twitchy when everything is shut and the city is quiet. Oh! That’s right – everything is shut and the city is quiet! It’s like we’re permanently trapped in a boring stat holiday, after we’ve eaten all the food and we’re feeling drowsy and a little self-loathing.

Our neighbourhood has really gone to town with the bears. We even have three bears sellotaped to our windows. Some of them are scary. Some of them are not bears. Still, it’s a fun thing to spot them and it gives you an excuse to stare into your neighbours’ windows.

    I check out the bears whenever I’m out for a walk. Today we did a big walk that briefly took I outside the city limits. I was half waiting to be pinned by the police. But obviously they were still eating their breakfasts when I went out. Our dog loves us being home. Bad luck Violet about the cupcakes but brothers will be brothers.

    You are more appreciated than you know.
    Your comics are pure gold.

    I also like fowl language.

    Hang in there.
    You are a bright spark.
