Fear and Shopping in Watton;

 

Andy Smith the bands resident graphic artist and video maker sent me this message the other day. His wife Anne who’s an animator/artist has a chronic lung condition, so we won’t be sharing jokes for awhile. Check out Andy’s work on our website and send messages of love via this blog or the You tube feedback.. Love to you all Jonny.

 

Hi John

 

Glad to hear you're both ok.  And thanks, Survivors did spring to mind but I couldn't remember what it was called.  It does feel like we've slipped into a b&w 70s docu-drama - either that or some kind of Biblical coda.  I think the weirdest thing is that having become accustomed to consuming news at arms length, through a screen or print, suddenly it's outside everybody's fucking front door.  Except of course that you can't see it (no matter how many Instagram filters you use).

 

Was in a dilemma last week, whether to give up the job and risk the DWP withdrawing support for having made myself unemployed.  As it turns out, the question has been answered for me, and as my boss has been good enough to include me on the payroll, it looks like I'll be eligible for the 80% handout.  Ty BJ.  Just wait until the bill lands for that one a few months down the line.

 

Yes, really worried about passing the virus on to Annie.  Even if one's lucky enough to bag a delivery slot, there's not a lot available online.  So on a real world, practical level, there's little alternative except to make an occasional foray into Watton on the off-chance that Tesco might have some food for sale.  But man, it's scary.

 

On the positive side, at least there's the opportunity to get productive, and the time to work up some personal project or other, a rare luxury.

 

Really, take care of yourselves

Andy & Anne
