16. North Somerset here

Folks,

I'm in a small town, which is usually quiet and now silent. I'm an old guy, retired, and my wife is here with me. Our daughter and grandchildren are on a farm and sound really happy in the phone calls.

OK, there is boredom and a lurking fear, although people we meet on our walks are mostly friendly with some supportive words (2 metres of course). Our county has around 200,000 population and 40 CV tested cases as we speak.

Worst personal things? Worry about our kids and everyone else's; I'm drinking too much, can't ride my motorcycles without feeling guilty even though the roads are clearer that I can remember since the 1960s.

Best things? Our Tory prime minister has used the words 'collective' and 'compassion' and has said that 'There really is such a thing as society'. I nearly fell off my perch!

Keep safe,

D.
