Ihave a confession to make and, as a journalist, it’s one I perhaps shouldn’t admit to. In our house, since April, we have hardly watched any television news programmes.
Is it an ostrich-like response to the 24 hour pandemic news, sticking my head in the sand and hoping it all goes away? No, and there are two reasons for this switch off. Firstly the six o’clock news comes on when we are having our evening meal and since all the family were home during the spring and summer lockdown we thought we’d get back to having some round the table conversations rather than staring blankly at the TV. Secondly, I can read enough about Covid-19, and the fallout of the disease, in any number of national newspapers, and, if I stray onto Twitter, any amount of rentaquotes.
Since Christmas is almost upon us you might like to do the same - banish Covid from intruding upon the season of goodwill and enjoy yourselves.
Happy Christmas from all of us at Bury & West Suffolk magazine.
