Lockdown Part 2, Leicester, Day 10

Just as there was a glimmer of hope that life can return to a degree of normality, Leicester and some of the neighbouring districts were placed under a second pandemic lockdown.

For the majority of people who closely followed the government advice in respect of social distancing and cleanliness and all the restrictions imposed by the government, we were hoping to be now moving forwards and returning to normal. But the minority of people chose not to follow the rules and regulations and consequently we are back in lockdown.

There are also reports that outbreaks occurred in many of the 1500 clothing and textile factories within the lockdown areas whereby people were either unwilling or unable to follow the guidelines which therefore put everyone else at risk.

Yesterday Support Worker Monika and I encountered a young couple sharing a romantic moment (kissing) whereby one person lived on one side of the motorway bridge which is in lockdown Leicester Forest East and the other person living in the safe zone of Leicester Forest East as the M1 literally splits the Leicester Forest East area in half which is causing more anxiety and frustration amongst the parishioners I have been elected to serve.

In other news, this week my team and I continue to support a local businessman with a problem and we have been liaising with other businesses and service providers to reach a conclusion.

Dennis - The blog that blows!

Saturday the 15th February 2020.

It was an early cold and rainy start to the weekend today, as Julian arrived at 8.30am, ready for a weights session at the gym. The gym session was a successful and productive one, as new levels of performance were met. Increased weight for the dumbbell press was achieved, and I felt really energised after this, both mentally and physically.

Storm Dennis was brewing and had an effect on the local residents of Braunstone Town,in particular supermarket shoppers. Trolleys were out of control in the Sainsbury's car park, as shoppers tried to handle the gushing winds (40mph).

In line with continued gym use, the healthy eating regime continues. Fruit and vegetables were on the menu replacing the former chocolate and sweet arsenal. As we left Sainsburys, a gust of wind blew an apple out of my bag, and fortunately, narrowly missed a senior citizen that was approaching.

After the chaos of Storm Dennis, Julian and I finally made it back home. A cup of coffee was well deserved. (lovely!)

One final task was due and that was to compare and select the best energy tariff. We all know that looking at energy tariffs is confusing, and the trust in suppliers, isn't the best. However, from the help of Julian's expertise, we found a deal which was cost efficient and from a supplier, that I felt comfortable in being with.

To summarise, today's events were productive.
Take care all, Until next time!
