So, we’re one week into the latest ‘national lockdown’ unless you live in Wales or Scotland when being part of the Union seems more akin to the title of a Strawbs song than any kind of de jure existence.
I woke up with a smile on my face this morning. Now, some of you may think that had something to do with Michelle and a feather but no, even on the first day of another lockdown, I remain positive about the future.
I am a writer and historian with a passion for sweets and football (not necessarily in that order!). I write fiction and non-fiction and, after working in the media for over 30 years, now run a sweet shop with my wife, Michelle, trading as Mr Simms Worcester. I also write about the history of sweets in a series of blog posts: 'A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Sweet Shop.'
