What would you put in a Covid Time capsule?

The cartoon in The Times ( I think) of Rishie Sunak firstly gaily throwing out handfuls of cash with that beaming smile on his face, and then lastly going dismally round the streets with a bag round his shoulders and a litter picker retrieving the odd cash note from the gutter.
I tried to copy the link but it won't work.

All the statistics which show that we have one of the lowest hospital bed counts per 100,000 heads of population in Europe, eg 800 for Germany and 246 for the UK and the same for intensive care. Then when it was opened ,those of us still around could see if it has been improved.

My apologies for sending twice. Not sure what happened.

Myself so I could come out again when it’s all over ??sorry I’m feeling a bit hysterical with it all this morning. I had to give myself a good talking to as my anxiety was running out of control.

You could maybe add to your caption “while home schooling”!

Copies of all the foreign and UK news claiming that everyone else was doing it better than we were, (which turned out not to be entirely true).
Photos of all the folk didn’t obey rules, with enlargements of all those who claimed it was OK to do stupid things because someone else did it first.
On the positive side, photos of the changes through spring, summer and autumn that we have had chance to notice on our walks and the trousers that are now too big because of all the walking we did!

I bought a piece of art and had it framed, it’s a picture called clap by Wefail. It some things up pretty well IMO!

I am enjoying this thread and all the suggestions. I think I would put in a photograph of new grandparents getting a first glimpse of their newborn grandchild socially distanced through a window.

A mask, my subscription to Netflix, a tape measure to show how much my middle has grown, my lockdown journal (now in several small volumes), our timetable, made for the first lockdown, a bar of dark chocolate with hazelnuts.

Photographs of my grandson and I on the beach during the first lockdown. We made memories of a lifetime. As soon as he could see the sea, he'd strip naked.

The paintings of 'hugs' my grandchildren sent me ..

The various self raising flour packets that I sourced from all sorts of places when Tesco’s couldn’t deliver their standard 45p product. I used local shops and garden centres and had all sorts of exotic flour including Italian flour from the nearby Italian deli. Some of it cost three pounds a bag. The cakes kept us all going though.

An article on how the NHS have worked tirelessly for us ,that they have put there lives on the line for us and how grateful and proud of them we are of them and our NHS.The clap for the NHS made me cry with pride every week.
