Thoughts and feels

For the past two days I’ve been dragging myself along, frankly pissed off about how quickly the weekend went by. Did we even have one?! I frequently long for a week off, a long weekend or even just a day to get away from this madness…and then I watched the news. BIG mistake. It’s all… Continue reading Thoughts and feels

Lock down – an update

Week 10, 11, 12? I don’t really know to be honest. This week I left the house for the first time since Boris announced we stayed home on March 23rd. It was stranger than I had imagined. I only left to get my MOT! Having waited patiently in an empty reception at the garage, nothing… Continue reading Lock down – an update

In a crazy world where good things happen.

13. This little snippet happened early on when we were all trying to figure out what lock down meant and if what we were living through was reality or some horrible nightmare.

12. Ever tried to write two novels at one time? I think I may have just taken on the challenge. Initially I struggled to find the time to read during lock down, let alone write.

In all of this breathe in the good and breathe out the bad…

I was walking home this morning from some friends who let me stay. My sister has just arrived home from Mayuma and so near to her I do not wish to be! She must quarantine for two weeks and before then she needed my bed. So I had to ask my dear friends if I… Continue reading In all of this breathe in the good and breathe out the bad…

In a crazy world where good things happen.

10. I think it’s safe to say – we love our NHS. In my village each Thursday night, the clashes of saucepans and spoons is getting louder. The clapping and cheering takes over. Even trumpets play from windows. We heard the lovliest rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow last week, it was beautiful. At work,… Continue reading In a crazy world where good things happen.

Isolation: best of a bad situation 1-3

As with all of my Covid-19 related posts, I am trying to keep things as upbeat as possible. While I feel I haven’t properly experienced lock down due to being a key worker and work being busier than ever, I fully understand how people can find it difficult. Of course I miss things.
