Happiness is a haircut. A little bit of history, momentous in a way for a lot of people.
We photographed our haircuts yesterday, to round off a lockdown time capsule that our U3A is preparing. Our hairdresser is having a lot of difficulty with the visor, it steams up...

I have a receding hairline, so it's a 5 minute DIY #2 cut for me.

I recorded the late night scene, it seemed very different to during the day. Mainly youngsters, some who had pre-loaded. A total lack of social distancing, almost as if lockdown had never happened. No signs of the promised contact tracing at Wetherspoons.

I doubt I'll be having another Wetherspoons breakfast for a while...

Wetherspoons was laughable, crowds of young people failing to socially distance, no forms as promised. But the staff had visors.

At least this bar seemed to be sticking to the rules.

Here comes the second wave spread by the young

And they can now socialise with elderly relatives...
The Chairman of the Police Federation has just been reported as saying that it is 'crystal clear that drunks cannot socially distance'. That much should have been predictable. Either you protect lives or you protect publicans' livelihoods, you cannot do both.

At last, a published story that doesn't involve death, misery or racism. What a relief.

Just the potential for death and misery...
