Good morning to you all, I hope you are surviving this lockdown and finding things to do. Keeping yourself amused can be difficult and entertaining children a challenge. Merely trying your best to walk passed the biscuit barrel without sneaking one crumb out of it, which then leads to eating a whole packet of chocolate digestives and you can no longer fit into your clothes can be a daily struggle.
There is one thing for sure. The coronavirus is not going away anytime soon. And we need to accept tat this new way of life and social distancing is here to stay. There will not be a flick of a switch and hey presto we can all get together, go to work, school, have parties of 500, etc. it will have to happen gradually.
In the meantime we need to make the best of it. Look after each other the best we can. One person go shopping. Exercise once per day. Bake at home. Camp in the garden, if you are fortunate to have one. Make things with arts and crafts materials. Take a virtual tour online; there are wonderful things you can do, for example you can go to the zoo in Edinburgh, https://www.edinburghzoo.org.uk/webcams/panda-cam/ Or why not take a virtual holiday online. Learn something new: a foreign language, a musical instrument. You tube is excellent. https://www.youtube.com/ Take time to pick up a book and read it or have one read to you, there are some great audio books for sale at Amazon. Some are even free. https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=audio+books+free&ref=nb_sb_noss_1
Folks have been complaining about the restrictions placed on us, staying at home, not being able to work the same amount of hours that we usually work, unable to socialise, Its all for our own good. Coronavirus is killing literally thousands of folks. Not only elderly and vulnerable but fit and energetic too. My sister is a nurse bounding with energy, works full time, not overweight and keeps herself busy and fit. She was diagnosed with the virus, became very ill, fortunately fully recovered and lives to tell the tale. And can once again nurse the sick and vulnerable and do her saintly duty for the amazing NHS.
Have a brilliant day love muchly Lizbeth xx
