Lincoln coronavirus tier 3 day twenty-three

Christmas Eve, very little traffic into the city, bus station deserted, many small shops closed.

River Witham running high, fast and muddy. Heavy rain last night, waterlogged ground, washes into the river.

Not too many people around, excellent.

Pepperdine’s closed, fishmonger closed, fruit and veg stall closed, Redhill farm shop closed, Christmas dinner screwed. But, luckily Curtis open, chicken, pork joint, cakes.

Coffee shop never found open in the summer, this afternoon with find open.

Coffee shops needs far better coffee, a decent coffee machine. Recommended
La Marzocco Linea Mini
, possibly the cheapest decent machine, will then need a decent grinder, a semi-professional domestic machine try Niiche Zero. And decent coffee, not LavAzza.

Cold.

Look in Vine’s Bakery on my way down Steep Hill, only a few loaves left. At least I warm up.

Takeaway coffee from Coffee Aroma. Very cold waiting outside.

M&S again crowded, but not as bad as Tuesday. Back to usual piss-poor service, only one till manned. Onr young lady shows initiative, without being asked, mans a till

Catch a bus. Is it that cold, driver dresses as an Eskimo. She opens up, not quite Marylin Monroe.
