Wear a mask, keep your distance and stop whinging

There are over 100,000 dead in the UK. Each one a life, loved, valued, mourned.

I am getting so wound up by the covidiots who refuse to wear a mask or who flout the rules on social distancing. There are genuine reasons why a mask is not appropriate but an infringement of human rights is not one of them.

I used to be a dental nurse and wore a mask all day. I never complained because it protect me from stray bodily fluids and protected the patients from me too (not that I slaveringly dribble!)

It does feel odd to wear a mask. My glasses do steam up despite a nose wire (almost always when I talk, note to self: SHUT UP!)
But if it makes me and others even a tiny bit safer then I will do it.


Matthew will be going to secondary school in September so needs to get used to wearing a mask. Anya loves wearing hers, in fact I have to nag her to take it off!

It feels bizarre not to visit my parents who only live 2 streets away. I have only seen my sister and her family twice in a year, outside and at a distance.
With 15 million people vaccinated, we are so close to escaping lockdown. But there are still thousands of new covid cases each day and hundreds dying.
We can’t be complacent.
I am completing two asymptomatic tests a week to keep our school safe and the same is true for teaching professionals around the country. My children are desperate to get back to normal, see their grandparents, have days out, go to the playground.
Just wear a mask, social distance and follow the rules. Don’t be a covidiot!


  1. Totally with you on all of this! I get that people have had enough now – we all have! But the more we can all just follow the rules now, the quicker we can get out of this! #mischiefandmemories

  2. We went for our daily walk yesterday and you would never have known we were in the middle of a pandemic. Our local town centre and park was packed to the brim with people not social distancing. It’s so crazy. We just want this to be over but people are not helping themselves. #MischiefAndMemories

  3. The mask attitude is so weird. I still carry mine at all times, and i still wear it in the shops (which is no longer required here, but not sure that’s smart). I also am the only one of my friends still not hugging hello.
    I wear glasses and I have no problems wearing masks – I just think people need to find the right mask for them. I got some from a dress maker and they’re fabulous. The wire seems to work better than other people’s.
    I really just want this stupid thing over.

  4. I don’t think I will ever get the COVIDIOT mindset of saying that masks infringe on their liberty. Masks have always seemed the right choice to make, which is why I started making them even before they were required. THIS VIRUS IS AIRBORNE!! #MischiefAndMemories

  6. I am exempt from wearing a mask due to having autism and whilst it does cause me a lot of anxiety and has on occasion caused me to have a panic attack I still wear one as much as I am able to because I need to play my part and do my bit. I don’t have a lanyard, if I can’t manage a mask, I don’t go inside.
