Sharing our Shit on a Saturday seems even more important in these strange circumstances where being a remote community comes into it’s own. Please visit what links you can, sharing them to others if you enjoy them.
It seems to me this week has been particularly bad for people in lockdown, causing feelings of frustration, aggravation or irritation. Living in the limited and restricted manner which the various authorities recommend is taking its toll on people’s mental health. It doesn’t sit well with people to be cooped up: if you’re introverted you aren’t getting the quiet recovery time you need. Tangentially the extroverts among us miss the socialising and changes of scenery vital for recharging batteries.

My 1st week of furlough has allowed a lot more time for reading. As well as browsing varied blog posts, I read There and Never Back Again and have reviewed it. It was one of the many book themed posts linked up to the Book Matters meme, which seemed very appropriate it was World Book Day this week.
