Help University of Stirling Archives Document Coronavirus We would love participants of absolutely all ages to create a daily coronavirus diary. The diary can be handwritten or typed up electronically and can include absolutely anything you might wish to record. Tell us about the weather and if it’s affecting you, what meals you’re eating and if they’re different to what you’d usually eat – could you not find something in the shops? Are you craving something from your favourite café? How are you passing your days? If you’re staff you’ll be working from home and if you’re a student, all your studies will have moved online – how has this worked and how has it affected you? What do you miss? But also, are there some small silver linings to this situation – the wildlife coming closer to your front door or making more time to call friends?
