Will I Look Good In Plaits? A Self-Isolation Diary
by Pamela Clarke
Will I Look Good in Plaits? is a humorous diary of observations about life in lockdown by one of the “so-called old and vulnerable”, as the author puts it. Pamela Clarke lives in rural Cheshire, and as a widow she occasionally admits to feeling alone and maybe vulnerable since the arrival of Covid 19, but never old. Her diary relates a variety of adventures, from failing to defrost the freezer and exploring a hundred ways of cooking cabbage to learning the piano on line and puzzling out the provenance of the mystery gifts which tend to arrive on her doorstep.
(and maybe gift a copy, or two!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Un-putt-down-able!
This will make you laugh, and cry, and think. And then leave you asking for a sequel: a post self- isolation diary? Clarke’s witty and poignant observations surely can’t be confined by the parameters of a pandemic…

A very funny but perceptive account of life in lockdown. Well worth reading.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and real
Brilliantly funny and a real life version of 2020 so far
Meet Pamela Clarke…
I’m a 72-year-old widow living in a small Cheshire village. I’m very involved in activities – president of the WI and assistant choir mistress at church. I’m a retired teacher and semi-professional singer. My two grown sons live away, so I have kept myself busy during lockdowns with gardening, piano lessons, and writing.
