So, lockdown ends on the 2nd December, but does it really…… We are coming out in tier 2 and before anyone says anything those coming out in tier 3 my heart really is with you.
To me it just means the same, I live on my own and apart from one friend that also has helped me out I have seen the odd masked delivery driver over the last two months, I promise I don’t mean that all delivery drivers are odd by the way. Actually, my last outing was back in February just before the first lockdown and that was, you guessed it a doctor’s appointment. I even had a virtual appointment with my Consultant, it felt like a bit of a waste of time. So, I feel like a goldfish in bowl looking out on a world that I feel no part of.
I am a bit of a happy soul normally, but I did play Billy no mates on my birthday (no offence meant to anyone called Billy), could not go to my uncle’s funeral and like many of you missed many family events.
But when I got the email from my local Council and realised that a long put off lunch with my best friend was not possible even after the 2nd December at my house, I did hit a bit of a low. Should the rules not be slightly more open for us who do live on our own? I do understand that carers are allowed in, but I am not at that stage, well not yet anyway!
Oh, here is another moan, I have been doing all my shopping online for over 5 years, anyone else had a nightmare with that recently? I at 4am this morning managed to book a delivery slot with Sainsbury for 21st December, in fact through all this I have been booking for deliveries way beyond I would have ever thought, but there is no choice as they go in seconds!
I am interested to know how you are doing.
