Water off a duck's back... I've not blogged for a few weeks as I had a writing week (for my MA dissertation research), then a week of leave to rest and recharge.

Small things feel very moving at the moment...the solidarity around an appreciation for those who are working so hard, often in very difficult circumstances, was huge this evening. I’ve not seen people out of their homes, on their drives, for some time now...of course observing the physical distancing! We applaud you, and we thank you!
