Things have ramped up quickly this week and any comments about the virus will probably be out of date by teatime.
Before I ramble on into this week’s blog, I want to pay tribute to to the people who are trying to keep the country running in this time of crisis, especially as it very much looks like we are going to be hit with a significant increase of people being impacted by the virus over the next few weeks.
Of course we have the people in the NHS, but I also want to thank the supermarket staff, the postal and courier services, highways staff, local authorities, the police, fire brigade, logistics drivers and of course public transport staff. In many ways, this crisis shows who is actually important for day to day life and frankly, my list will have missed lots of people.
I’m finding it hard to concentrate on writing anything too technical and so I thought this week, I’d share a few photographs and thoughts from the week. Most of us have slowed down, with our world shrinking accordingly. Getting out to pick up food or to post letters by cycle is now part of my new routine which has thankfully been helped by the sunshine. I did however venture out last Sunday for an exercise ride and I’ll do the same tomorrow.
