then came the pandemic...

During the Covid pandemic, Kev turned to writing poetry as an outlet for his thoughts and frustrations. One of the most touching is 'The Promised Land', while others like 'The Dog's dilemma' revealed Kev's wonderful sense of humour. During this time he even wrote a tongue-in-cheek guidebook for a tour of a Lidl supermarket (although Cicerone had trouble with the mapping)!
