Lincoln coronavirus lockdown day one hundred and thirty one

A dozen passengers on bus into Lincoln luckily a double-decker and all went u on top deck.

Pleased to see 200 Degrees has finally arranged tables in the sterile space opposite. It has improved the ambience of Sincil Street.

Now we need to see streets closed, pedestrianised, traffic free, tables in the streets across the city.

Replacement fruit and vegetable stall in Lincoln Central Market spot the customer.

Today the worst it has been in the city centre since Super Spreader Saturday. Too many people about.

No surprise covid-19 cases are now on the rise across the country.

Much as I like to walk up Steep Hill, today too lazy and to save time I hopped on the walk and ride bus and alighted at Lincoln Cathedral.

Instead of heading into Castle Hill where I see a craft market and into Bailgate, as a pleasant sunny day, I take a wander around the Cathedral.

The only interesting stall on the craft market, one with handmade soap. I suggested talk to the zero wastes tall on Lincoln Central Market.

One stall claimed artisan honey or maybe that was the name of the stall.

Artisan is a much abused term, but this is the worst example by far. Er, bees make honey. Artisan is applied to everything, artisan coffee, artisan bread, artisan cheese. It is an utterly meaningless term.

Lunch at Elite on the Bail.

I wished to buy craft beer in BeerHeadz. Crowded, noisy, loud music. I did not bother.

The Old Mouse House Cheese Shop, someone’s idea of a sick joke, award winning plastic wrapped fake Cheddar adulterated with zillions of additives

Walking back down Steep Hill I look in Bunty’s tea room. Never found open before. Cramped inside.

Back down in the High Street binge drinking bars packed, noisy.

The Worse by far Walkabout. Crowded, no social distancing, bellowing on midrophone.

Cappuccino Madame Waffle. Guest coffee from DT Coffee Roastery. Roasted last September, almost a year old, and yet still excellent.
