So this weekend should have been the May Day bank holiday (Public Holiday) however this year it has been moved to Friday so we can celebrate (?) the 75th anniversary of the end of the second World War of the 20th century in Europe. I have to say I don’t do these celebrations as I feel they are becoming more and more about other things than remembering the suffering of our parents/grandparents (And before you accuse me of not being patriotic my father nearly died fighting in Burma but that doesn’t make me want to breakout the bunting.). Instead we would best honour all of the suffering by a minutes silence and promising not to repeat the mistakes of the past rather than hold a bank holiday on an arbitrary anniversary date – why 75 rather 76?
With that off of my chest it was a lovely day for my walk and a bit of natter to random people I met whilst out – yes we kept the 2m distance.
