A Diary of the Plague Year: Day 6 22 March 2020:

The sun is well and truly out! Have been flat out for an application to UCD as an artist-in-residence. I do not rate my chances at all but it has to be done.  Will try to get into the garden later.

Meanwhile, here is a pic of my new bucket. Yesterday in Clon the only two shops open were Atkins, the hardware shop (I think nothing short of nuclear war would actually cause them to close) and the really nice butcher. So bought a galvanised bucket and a lamb steak.  That should see me though.

Next to horrible old plastic bucket so you can imagine the thrill.

Listening to R3: Early Music Show.

J (neighbour from Froe) braved The Pestilence to come over for lunch bringing some kale tops.  We sat at either ends of the kitchen table a la Downton Abbey – quite hilarious really. A very cold day so had the fire blazing in the kitchen.  Lunch consisted of courgettes cooked in honey and garlic with couscous and yoghourt and some of the kale tops.
