Seven Months In...

My sister's ex-husband's second wife has come down with Covid. She's the first person I "know" who has contracted the virus. I put "know" in inverted commas because I've only met her a few times and if I've had conversations with her I've no recollection of what was said. She's Chinese and works in a care home somewhere in Devon. She and my ex-bro have a three storey house and are isolating on different floors...

I take note of what the MSM is saying about CV19 and I take note of the alternative media too. I don't post about what I read- though it interests me greatly- because none of the stories (and I include the ones being put out by "The Science") are copper-bottomed. For every voice that says "A" there's a voice that says "B". I incline to certain theories but I don't believe in any of them. Above all, I refuse to be afraid.

Our life here on the farm has been a little more circumscribed this year- but we were already isolated.
