Keep reading in the news of 1 in 4 cutting back on food, not using the car as much and not having takeaways or nights out. Anyone on here cutting back on anything. The really worrying thing is that if it's hard now imagine what the winter is going to bring. I'm definitely being more energy efficient. Took so much for granted in the past.
splitting the country in two. We've become a very fractious nation haven't we. It isn't going to take much, especially with the economic situation, for the touch paper to be lit. I fear a riotous summer. The togetherness of lockdown has gone.

Now we've seen you can't just buy your way out of this league it certainly looks like we're are doing things in a more measured way than before.
