Lockdown Diary Week Eight!

Lockdown Diary Week Eight! Coming into week 8 and I wasn’t feeling terribly positive. THE statement was made by BoJo last night which basically doesn’t change much (good) but does hint that it could soon and I for one am not happy about it. Sending 5 year olds back to school?
