Cards not getting through,all Mail running late & i dont think the postman even delivers everyday,posting 1st Class is an absolute waste,and i still have some cards to send which might or might not arrive by Christmas and as far as i'm concerned my Christmas will be cancelled until next April,and its no big deal.
I've decided not to spend this Christmas with friends who have invited me during the Christmas/new year season,I will not put them or myself at risk,and i honestly dont mind,I have gone through most of this year on my own,and i coped very well,and so its not going to be a hardship,but of course my dogs are an enormous help.
I was planning to visit Memorial Woodlands where my David is,but i wont do that either as they are discouraging visitors unless absolutely essential.,and the time will come when we have our freedom back to lead a normal life.
I put flowers by David's photo and i know he's around.
I refuse to drive more than locally,and i am very aware of risks,and I wont put my life or others in jeopardy,it would be completely irresponsible.
I know some people think Covid 19 is not real,but i know it is,and it is concerning that now its the teens and 20's that are contracting this virus.
Oddly enough,i dont feel at all lonely,and i suppose its a case of acceptance,and there is a big difference between 'lonely and aloneness',and one things for sure i wont go hungry when my chest freezer is overflowing,my home is warm,and i know i have more than enough, for which i am more than fortunate,and i am humbled.
Its been the most terrible year,but we're still here,and God willing we will all stay safe.
Everyone must do as they feel fit during the upcoming season,its a choice we all have,but i just hope everyone enjoys whatever they do,and that they stay well and healthy.x
