Christmas Eve, Thursday December 24th 2020 – I had a busy day – the errands mounted up, last minute shopping for groceries, dropping off presents and so forth. My last task was to nip into Walsall wo pick up some vegetables in the early evening.
It was a crisp, clear evening and the riding fast but easy in the nippy air. I decided to return through Pelsall, to check out their Christmas tree.
Unusual in the borough that it’s planted, it was handsome and looked lovely in the memorial garden.
But what a strange Christmas Eve this was: Early evening, nobody around.
What a changed world we live in at the moment.
