Covid-19 | The Journal, Part 16

On the day that eating indoors in restaurants and cafés was allowed again, a friend and I had Afternoon Tea. 🙂 I included a print out of my Mass Observation Diary (which happened before Afternoon Tea, but no matter). Dominic Cummings appeared before a parliamentary committee and let rip – it was fascinating to watch it all unfold. Hell hath no fury …

There was a huge push in the vaccination program and for the first time since the pandemic began, the UK recorded a day without any deaths. The government announced that Portugal was moving from the travel green list to the amber and there was a fair bit of kerfuffle over the decision.


I don’t want to begin a fourth volume, so I’m planning on ending this journal when the final round of restrictions are lifted in the next few weeks (I fully expect the proposed date of 21 June to be moved into July or even later).

  1. Oh I really hope there is no need for a 4th volume. I’m sceptical about the date for lifting of restrictions too. I think there may be some but not all. That Dominic Cummings discussion was eye opening wasn’t it? My goodness, he didn’t hold back. There really is no love lost between them all is there!
    Meanwhile, I’m just enjoying the easing of restrictions that we have had, it’s just nice to have some freedom back again.

    1. I’m with you on enjoying what we have available to you – we’ve just booked a pub lunch with friends and it felt so good to be able to do that. 🙂

  2. Let’s hope that what Mr Cummings said about your BoJo wasn’t true about imposing another lockdown. I think worldwide all leaders, if not most will not be remembered favourably by their peoples over the handling of the pandemic. Our recent lockdown (since November) is easing as of tomorrow, but we have already been warned about the 4th wave & another lockdown is in play, but hey let’s just keep those flights coming in. I’ll say no more.

    Your albums recording the last 15 months could be part of the historical documentation of the pandemic!

  3. This is such a treasure, your Covid album, and a fascinating historical record. I like your list and the little coloured icons peeping out behind. I’m another who is expecting things to be delayed by a few weeks at least; I do there is a holding to account but if today’s performace by Hancock is anything to go by, there’s going to be plenty of redacting, denial and obfuscation.
