Satirical Snapshots bringing you your daily dose of Corona Corner!

Good morning isolators!  It’s pandemic playtime!  Today I bring you another task to lighten your day and bring amusement to you and your friends.

Corona Corner #7 – A touch of light reading

During this isolation period, I received a wonderful copy of the new Ladybird book from a friend.  There’s nothing like a touch of light reading to get through those dull moments and help us to escape to another world…

Have a great weekend – the best way you can! No going to congregate at the seaside or parks! Get in your garden and do some weeding with a large gin and tonic, and remember to…

Corona Corner #6 – Up Close And Personal

During this isolation period, I received the gift of a tiny macro lens for my iPhone.  To be fair, it’s quite a decent little tool – much better than I expected and I have had some very interesting, and some very Ewww – not so pleasant, close up views of things around me. 

Trust me, there’s more than this virus to make you want to wash your hands more!

Anyway, here’s the thing – my task for today is to get up close and personal with a macro lens if you have one  (only a fiver online) and a magnifying glass if you don’t.  

Take a gander…

Grounded

Well, that’s it now. You went and pushed the boundaries didn’t ya?!  Thought you were all on your jolly’s and went off to the seaside for the weekend and broke the rules. You bunch of muppets. 

And can you STOP BUYING ALL THE SODDING TOILET PAPER?  WHO ARE YOU? YOU ABSOLUTE MORONS!

Twice a day I am going to the supermarket to still find toilet roll a thing of the past. Snapped up in 20 minutes.  I’m starting to really, really not like people. 

Based on the fact that these unusual times might be a little bit trying I bring to you a stress-relieving remedy that gives great results:

Corona Corner #5 – Pack Up Your Troubles 

On your one trip out for exercise – take yourself to the riverside with a pen and paper.  Water has a way of calming the fires. Sit in your car and write down all the many things that are pissing you off.  Rage about them.  Turn the air blue should you need to. Write it all down on pieces of paper.  Walk along the river’s edge and release them.

Gone.

Done.

Trouble – free

It really works and saves a nasty accident…

Find your inner zen and…
