Jimmy Cricket talks about life under the lockdown in his latest newspaper column.
The UK government announced on 23 March it was imposing strict new curbs on life in the country following the global outbreak of coronavirus.
It has included restrictions on leaving the house and also meant people observing social distancing when they are in public.
‘Lift people’s spirits’
“So after lunch I’ll put on my hat and wellies on and record some jokes and birthday wishes to send out on social media.
“I’m so blessed that my good lady May is such a whizz kid on modern technology, so she acts as director and producer on these little movies.”
He says he puts aside some time each evening to phone his friends.
“They’re all going to be in, that’s for sure.”
Jimmy adds: “We also look forward to our family get-together through Zoom and Skype.
“We get to see to see the latest drawings and stories from our grandkids, and extended family.”
