The last couple of weeks have been quite remarkable simply in their unremarkability.
Nothing has really happened here at the Manor apart from an invasion of foreigners and some heavy machinery driving around the estate.
It looks like the second wave of the Virus has hit, precisely as the majority predicted. The Healthist Mob made loud noises about “beating the virus” and how successfully we had knocked it into submission but the dogs in the street were predicting the current wave from the very start. All they really succeeded in doing was to postpone the second wave to coincide with the start of the flu season. It’s no wonder there is now chaos.
So Christmas has been cancelled, along with Halloween and all the rest of the winter landmarks. I’m not shedding any tears. Maybe they’ll just revert to being quiet winter festivals as they were always meant to be without all the hysteria? But sadly I doubt it.
On thing that seems to be sadly in very short supply these days is plain old common sense. However I see there is a piece in the paper today which is very refreshing. Read it and shout Hurrah! Will our Lords and Masters pay any heed?
I’m not holding my breath.
