We Will Miss Philip - and Link-Up

 Is This Mutton blogger Gail Hanlon on contemplative mood as she reflects on the death of Prince Philip

The last few days have been fairly momentous in the UK.  The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, died on Friday just two months short of his 100th birthday.  And on Monday, the gradual relaxing of lockdown restrictions reached an important stage with non-essential retail, hairdressers and gyms able to reopen, and pubs and restaurants able to host people outdoors.

Patterned Trousers for Summer - and Link-Up

Acid yellow with brightly coloured patterned trousers from Kettlewell for a summer of fun
 With the easing of lockdown restrictions comes a slight sense of dread for the introverts and shy, myself among them, who have enjoyed a year without any enforced socialising in large groups.

Sentence a Day, March 2021


Background Update:  For the last 12 months I've been covering the UK Covid situation in my Sentence a Day posts.  In March 2021,  we are still in lockdown - a slight easing of the rules for England came later in the month but means only that six people can meet outdoors:  no pubs or restaurants, or non-essential shops, are open yet.  We are told to work from home if we can, and not to leave our local area. The vaccination program is going extremely well but the UK still heads the chart showing the highest number of deaths per million of population, worldwide.

Covid Learnings, Miscellaneous Outfits - and Link-Up

 Over 50s blogger Gail Hanlon in bright pink and white

It's just over a year since the UK went into lockdown for the first time. I looked over my March 2020 entry for Sentence a Day to see what it was like. On the first day, March 24, I went into the local Co-Op and was horrified to see empty shelves.  It was as if locusts had been and stripped the place.
