In some ways it felt just like a weekend, us all here enjoying a late breakfast. A FaceTime call from Australia and an exchange of the global impact on us all was the indicator that this was different.
Three out of the five of us here logged on to the internet, which has slowed massively.
Issues with set ups for some, phone calls, WhatsApp, and emails flying around. My computer in the office off, meant no access until it can be switched on today.
The weather is delightful, another twist of irony as it cannot be enjoyed as it would be customary to. I took the opportunity to prune the rose I have in memory of my dear friend Sian. Hopefully the blooms and scent later this summer will arrive when we are through this terrible pandemic, and will signal a more normal life once again.
I bought a cross stitch wood nymph about 5/6 years ago for my new bedroom, which is to be redecorated again, but it will help to wile away the hours at this time.
Georgina continued to strip the upstairs wall, a job well done, and crossed of the ta da list.
I found a photo from a holiday a few years back which gives hope of how and where we can look to be when this dreadful pandemic subsides.
Dinner was cooked by Joe, with the others helping to clear up: I could get used to this!
The shopping was delivered with a bit of a hotch potch of not available, and the substitutes, but that will be the last for sometime as there are no slots to book for the next three weeks.
Let’s hope that the tide will start to turn from the up curve stage we currently are at.
Today will be more of the same, we’ll look to buy a puzzle, and decide who will be the ‘shopper’ to go out and buy what we need. Decision for today is what to eat and choose a room to blitz, although I will have to keep my inner monkey in check, as I will struggle with the time to do stuff and that others won’t be on the same page.
I hope everyone is getting by and that this three weeks, possibly longer, will feel like a short interlude in time for us, and that this will also provide us with a different perspective and appreciation for mankind.
