Yesterday the lockdown has been extended for at least another three weeks.
I’m not surprised and what is surprising is how relatively quickly the last 3 1/2 weeks have gone. The measures appear to be working so let’s hope that continues.
There are worrying sound bites of social distancing continuing beyond this year and ramifications of coming out of lockdown. I do feel that we will all find a new ‘normal’ after this and for sometime to come be reticent in some things we have taken for granted.
I have been busy with making cards, making calls, checking work emails and trying not to do too much so that I get up to full speed.
I went food shopping too and that was a surreal, almost eerie experience. I was unsure of the correct social mores that had to be observed, but went as I was getting anxious about going out again, and I felt the longer it went on the more anxious I would get.
We all have down days and that’s understandable and important to accept these feelings and not dwell on them, but appreciate that we are ok and this will end at some point.
