6th July 2020

Day 104 of semi lock down.

At long last this morning at exactly 9am my hair was cut four months since my last cut at Stephs. I wasn't sure what to expect but we both wore our face masks and she has a good system in place for social distancing and safety. It was really nice to see her and even nicer that I can now wear my head down rather than in a ponytail. I also got to meet tiny Harper the puppy which Steph rescued from some dealers who clearly got him from a puppy farm.

The day felt quite normal as I rushed back as I was due at the Landmark Centre at 11.30 to take photographs of Munira Wilson our local MP, as she promotes the plight of the Centre. She is very nice and I think I've got some good photographs of everybody together both inside and outside.

Later in the afternoon I knocked up one of my superb fish pies followed by apple crumble and yes I will need a big diet in a few weeks! We went out again to the Landmark Centre to take more photos as it took part in the ‘Light it in Red’ campaign to highlight the plight of arts establishments across the country. Despite the Government announcing almost £2 billion of funding support for theatres and art establishments, it is not clear if the Landmark Centre will qualify for any of these and so it is still in the balance whether or not it will survive into next year. Fingers crossed that with my support with print sales and all the other many initiatives across the area, we can keep the place open.
