I had intended to do a post before now, but something always changes in the whole COVID-19 situation, rendering all my ideas obsolete overnight. But now we're in a period of relative stability (at least until next week when our Beloved Government makes its Christmas plans clear), I can finally get something in writing. So apologies to any readers who may find this stuff even more bizarre and disjointed than usual.
While the pubs were still open, I did my bit, shall we say. I doubted my custom alone would keep the town's pubs going, but let it be said here - I gave it my very best shot. Every Sunday and Monday I did my usual crawl, sinking many pints in the process and reassuring people in social media that though these places were open, the much-expected non-social distancing disasters was not happening. At least where I was going, anyway.
