Chroniques Covid Chronicles: the Page!

In March 2020, and nasty virus gave a stop paragraph to our planet. For two solid months we were locked down,, restricted to our humble abode. I kept a diary as I knew I would forget and indeed I already do two weeks and a half after our release.

This page will simply give you a list of my various posts so that is easier for you to track them back and it will include the funny pictures still coming out after the end of the lockdown

  • The mystery of Day ( Anita’s Birthday): this wonderful event was another Chronicles on May 3d which I’m not going to forget… yet maybe because we drank a lot or something strange happened when I was sorting another bug but this Chronicle which was one finally marking the way towards the end of our lockdown vanished. Below are some photos and all I can say is that I spent 6 wonderful hours out in an impressionist garden with my lovely friends. I also wrote a small card that reads:
Hilary Mantel, the mirror and the light fourth estate: London, 2020
“I don’t have a history, only a past. “ (p 102)

Because I finally managed on 23d May MMXX to achieve my dream of a Saturday afternoon reading in bed (honestly my ultimate treat!) and was looking up some Medieval English expressions (spit boy and Dottypoll), I found this excellent English Renaissance Food literature which I warmly recommend and where I found a fabulous bibliography I intend to add to my own for further pandemic activities:
