Thursday, June 11, 2020, Day 88, Week 13, Month 4 of Self Isolation.

The New Way of Life

I was determined to finish Chapter 5 of Wait for Me so that I can hit all my targets for Friday and have a day off tomorrow. I did it but it took until 3pm and by the time I’d had a shower and a bike ride it was 5pm!

So, its a short one today!

Other than that, didn’t do very much today. Looking forward to having a day to myself tomorrow.

Another blustery, cool day but we managed to dodge the showers while we were out on our bikes.

Naughty, naughty, easy peasy, pie and chips for dinner!

The News

Test and trace figures suggest that only 1/3 of people contacted gave no, or incorrect, contact details, or refused to participate. Shouldn’t there be a fine for people who don’t cooperate or refuse to self-isolate if were going to prevent a second wave?

Out of 200 who were repatriated by air to Barbados from the US a couple of days ago, 4 have tested positive for the virus.

Pubs and schools say they can’t re-open successfully unless the government reduce the social distancing distance from 2 metres to 1 metre. The government are sticking to their guns for now. We will see.

British Gas owner, Centrika, has cut 5,000 jobs.

People are pulling down statues of imperialists slave traders all over the world!

The Numbers

151 new deaths taking the total to 41,279.
