The days are shorter, the dark, night sky is around longer. More people are travelling on public transport. More people are wearing face coverings and also more people have been admitted to hospital with Covid-19. With the weather change and some tempers fraying with the local lockdowns, 2020 has been a year of change. This time last year, there was a lot of advertising for Halloween: trick or treaters were ready to knock on strangers doors and get a lot of sweets and chocolate. Unfortunately, that will not be the case this year. The half term holiday this month is usually one or two weeks long, depending on the area and school. This is the time the little, big man would spend some time with grandma and also attend footballing events. But not this year. There has been speculation that the country may be in full lockdown for two weeks during this period, so as to slow down the pandemic and also not to further disrupt school education. There are lots of rules and laws in different parts of the country which can make it confusing to know what to do and what to follow. As humans, we don’t really like change, but we adapt to it. However, when this change is on a near daily basis, it can be frustrating and a tad depressing. I hope that with all the changes taking place, that there will, in the near future, be a change back to the near normal life at the beginning of this year.
