Tuesday 24th March

12:00 – 12:50, wind SSW 3 gusting 5, temp 14C (feels like 13).

Today is the first day of containment. I walk a route off WSW, towards and onto the Town Moor then up the side of Cow Hill – I almost made it to the top – then back by a more easterly route.

It is mainly sunny, and I pass people, alone or in pairs, also out walking or running. We don’t pass close by each other on the pavements, instead stepping off into the road or veering off the path so that we leave ‘a distance’; there are several friendly nods and grins as we do this.
