It was a bit of a shock to find it's Friday again, but on the other hand we are all coping with the news that lockdown is going to with with us for at least three weeks more, (and realistically, much longer too, in one form or another). So I know that it can make time seem to drag, for some of us.
I do hope everyone's coping OK with that thought. For those of you who have absolute care of another human being I'm sure it can be extra daunting and exhausting. Do let someone else know if you are struggling. Sometimes it helps just to let off steam, even though there's nothing we can do to change our situation practically.
This week I was so relieved that my own sister has resolved her shopping issues. She's suddenly found herself unable to leave my brother-in-law alone at home safely, to go and shop and was finding it so difficult to get online slots for deliveries.
That seems to be easing a bit now, and I believe that more people who can, are opting to go and shop themselves to relieve boredom. And she's also had some help from her local Co-op.
I've already mentioned it in my quote for today but last night was really moving, when much of the local shipping sounded their horns in praise of all our support workers and the NHS at 8pm. Are any of you managing to join in the applause. Ours seems to get lost on the wind, living two floors up but we try!
I really hope that none of you has been affected by the clearly quite serious situation there has been in many of our Care Homes with lack of protection and high infection rates. It must be a huge worry for anyone with loved ones in Homes, and I'm thinking of all you.
Please have a safe weekend and be as happy as you can. Take care.🙏😊🌈
