Normal has been Cancelled

Our apologies.

Normal has been cancelled.

We can't go back to normal.

The people that used to do normal are older

most are more tired

some aren't interested in what used to be normal

and some are dead.

So normal isn't normal any more.

We'd like to do you a new normal

but it's too soon

and things aren't normal.

We will let you know when things are normal

and then we'll find out what the new normal is.

But the new normal won't be normal.

Or not the normal you think is normal.

In the meantime, here's something not normal.

It's not normal

but it's the best we can do.

Our apologies.

Normal has been cancelled.


  1. So true. It’s good to know not just me. That does help to normalise a bit. Fell encouraged. Thank you for posting Jan.

  2. It seems that you are defying the common purpose of the great unwashed British public who don't care about normal and just know that the virus is still around, but it won't affect them, particularly as they've had one does of the vaccine (to show willing) and can now party for ever in their normal lives. Out with the slogans about Face, Space, Hands and on with the admission to A&E and ICU with some tired medics to care for them, and maybe an appointment with a funeral direction in due course. No, we are all normal now, while the rest of the world suffers.
