update - London, UK / July, 4th 2020
Hi Postcrossing friends worldwide.
How are you doing and how has the Corona virus pandemic affected you and your circle? I have been staying home in the house & garden apart from weekly trips to the supermarket and once to the vet. I am lucky I can work from home. My partner's income might stop soon
Lockdown started in the UK on March 16th. The first week was eerily quiet, no traffic noise at all. Then came tragic events of keyworkers (bus drivers, nurses) dying from Covid. Shocking.
Social distancing became the new normal.
It is now three months later and rules are being eased. Beaches are cramped with people when the weather is good and from today, pubs are open again, too. There is a fear of new spikes. It is complex and I think we are in for the long ride.
I hope you all are keeping safe & I am sending you virtual hugs.

Here is my old profile text:
Hi everyone. My name is Sylvia. I live with my boyfriend Steven and our cat Rocky in London, England. Near Wembley (you might have heard of Wembley Stadium).
I enjoy going on walks and I am planning on completing 'The London Loop'. It was a YouTube channel that inspired me, see here: https://www.youtube.com/user/fugueur
Another Vlog which I regularly watch is by wildlife photographer Morten Hilmer.
I like all animals especially farm animals like cows and chicken. And because I am concerned about the welfare in the dairy industry, I am supporting these two UK farms:

My kind of music: The Stranglers, Sepultura, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, The Smiths & other genres. Lately discovered the UK artist 'Tensheds'.
I like the look of futuristic buildings and modern architecture especially Brutalist and Bauhaus and also all kinds of furniture designs.
My family are football fans and support Tottenham Hotspur (English Premier League). Do you have a favourite sport/ team?
