A rainbow for our key workers.

Across the country children at home in isolation are putting rainbows they have drawn and painted in their windows as a thank you to all our key workers. Not just our doctors and nurses, but shop workers, social workers, cleaners, waste collectors, teachers and volunteers. All of these people working hard to keep the fabric of society together during this crisis.

My son Jack and I went for a walk. He rode his scooter and we talked as we went. Despite knowing that people are really taking the good advice to stay in, it is still surprising to see how so few people were on the roads and on the paths. The silence was the most surprising. There was so little man-made noise other than the faint buzz of distant traffic that we could hear all the birds whistling and twittering. It brought back vivid memories of childhood. Sounds from the parks and woodland. Not something you expect to hear in the city.

Family.

Today we very briefly visited Sarah’s parents to drop off assorted food supplies to them. We all got a chance to say hello and speak a little at a distance. Such a frustrating experience. I think it made Sarah and I really realise that the next few months are only going to get more difficult.
