I can’t really believe that it has been 96 days! That seems ridiculous. It has left me feeling jaded and everything seems surreal.
I think of the world outside going on the same as usual. I haven’t been in a supermarket for 94 days. We order our food in by home delivery. I have this image in my head that the supermarket is just the same. I wonder about my sourdough bread, those delicious pecan slices and the cereal that I love; I bet none of those things are there now. We live in a different world.
All those places I used to regularly go to – the pubs, restaurants, cinemas, gig venues – shut and eerily empty. It’s a bit strange.
I bet a number of them will never open again. Things have changed.
So our inept government has abandoned its tracking ap. What a surprise. Why couldn’t they have talked to other people and collaborated? Everything has to reinvent the wheel. I fear it is that arrogance again! There’s talk of going from 2 metres to 1 metre and opening schools. It won’t effect us. We’re staying put!
Rab Butler put his foot in it with the BLM people – taking the knee was much too common for him. Everyone should be taking the knee to him!
So today I went for an early walk to avoid the rain! It was blustery and I did get peppered with a few drops but I avoided the majority. It felt strange to be in jacket and trousers after shorts and T-shirt. Shoes feel funny.
We decorated a bedroom and I played my Elvis Costello. I knackered now but there’s a sense of achievement!
Tomorrow we go to see friends for a SD meet up. That’ll be good. Then the day after we do the same with other friends. I’m looking forward to a good natter! I better I know the main topic of conversation – Covid 19 and our inept, dithering government! Looking forward to meeting up with family!! It’s been a long time!!
