The view from my window

Early this morning, not a soul about….sharp sun, deep shadows and cold:

Later, the sun was casting longer shadows, still pretty cold, but one brave soul came to sit in the sun

Sadly, after I took this image, people were coming out and not maintaining a safe distance, and I confess to yelling out of the window “please maintain your distance…”


  1. Good on you! I must day, people here are being pretty good. Bu then we’re lucky enough to have the space….

  2. You’re not tempting me to have breakfast there 🙂 🙂

  3. Good for you. Some people don’t get that there is a “this” to be in, much less that we’re all in this together.

  4. I see many people being confused between good intentions and distance, as if they can’t stand eight feet away and smile and wave or talk, and that it is only genuinely ‘friendly’ if they stand close and then talk. It seems a really programmed confusion in some folks–

  5. Been pleasantly surprised how well folk around us are behaving…. But haven’t been shopping yet….. Hope people are sensible in that environment when I have to venture out for supplies

  6. I agree with Margaret we have the space and people are taking wide berths in shopping centres etc. what happened to complete lock down? Didn’t think people were allowed outside

    Keep safe ! I feel the same here when I don’t see people wearing the compulsory mask. Especially because it’s mainly young foreigners, so irresponsible !

  8. Good for you. I’ve found myself “having words” with a few people over their stupid, selfish behaviour in the last few days.

  9. Good on you for telling them!

  10. No online deliveries available here until mid-April, so a shopping trip will be necessary by Sunday/Monday. Strange to hear the total quiet in Beetley. Hopefully shattered later by the arrival of my plumber to fix a leaking header tank! 🙂
    I take it that’s a communal garden space? People definitely have to take more care in those. It seems some are deluded that ‘fresh air’ makes it safe.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  11. Love the changing shadows – and your policing of stupid behaviour!

  12. Here I thought at first that it was a perfect setting for proper distancing. I am sorry that people need to be instructed. Stay safe.

  13. The purple bench could be quite enticing under other circumstances. And as long as no-one sat next to me!
