Oh no!  I'm glad you designated this 'surreal' - you had me really worried there.  

I can't believe it's only a couple of months since my son and daughter and I were in the West End, seeing a show, spending time in cafes and restaurants,...

And another vote for the reading.  The poem itself is lovely, but I do believe that poetry is meant to be read aloud, by the poet where possible.

Changing life for all of us, Grace.  You're right, it's important we keep in touch with people who are 'self-isolating' and make sure they're OK.  Hope you manage to get what you need and stay safe.

I confess to having bought an extra bag of cat litter, just in case.  Most things I can do without but, should I get stuck indoors, I don't fancy being cooped up with a fussy moggie and no cat litter!

I suppose it's just a question of waiting for it to blow itself out, as these things do.  I'm not minimising it - it's worrying for people with underlying health conditions - but I'm just hoping that people don't panic, because panic can be as...
