Hi everyone, this COVID19 virus has hit us and hard and fast and now we are starting to unlock the lockdown with lots of fear and trepidation as the virus is still virulent but life must go on, so when people talk about getting back to normal, this means when we stop fearing this virus, that's normal.
I have been feeling uneasy since we were told the peak was over so we were going to get the country back to work and children back to school. Now what bothers everyone is nothing has changed except we’ve avoided getting the virus but it’s still out there so suddenly the need to be alert instead is challenging and this is what we have to overcome is staying safe whilst getting things up and running again.
It's strange because at first I felt very isolated but lucky compared to many and the irony is with walking to my local shop and my neighbours wanting to be friendly and community spirited I feel I’ve made new friends. I gave a neighbour a small tree and she gave me some vegetable plants then she told her neighbour and they gave me some vegetable plants and it’s very heartwarming this sense of wanting to be part of the community.
Today I went for a walk into the forest via the ponds and sat on a fallen tree just watching everything around me and I realised that like everyone else I have to be patient and just as importantly we must have hope as vaccines are being developed and tested.
The photo is one of my favourite spots as it’s minutes from my home and then I go into the forest where I can sit down on a fallen tree and enjoy just being there as we are allowed to sit down outside now and it felt good.
Enjoy your day folks stay safe as we can and will beat this because hope and patience is more powerful than this virus...🌈🌞
