The Corona Diaries Week 11: Craving

I wrote last week about how lockdown’s slowly coming to an end, and at the time of writing this, the UK has surpassed 40,000 deaths from Coronavirus. Over 40,000 people.

I feel like a virus (excuse the irony) has invaded my brain this week, taken away all my positive thinking and mindset from last week and replaced it with anger, frustration and general moodiness. So, I'm going to let it all out here, as quickly as I possibly… Continue reading The Corona Diaries Week 3: Negative Nancy
