The questions we have been asking during this pandemic have changed. It used to be ‘Are your family well. Have they caught covid?’ Then it moved on to ‘How are you coping without seeing people? Are you able to get your shopping?’ At the beginning of the year we were asking ‘Have to had your first vaccine yet?’

As January became February we enquired, ‘Have you had your second vaccine yet?’ It now seem the latest question is ‘When will you have your hair cut?’ Hairdressers have become the most important people in our lives. Today I’m able to plait my hair because it is so long. Tomorrow I’m having it cut. I’m almost sorry to see it go. I will never grow it so long again. The time is coming when people will be able to see my hair style because they will be able to see me.
