Another day during lockdown

Today was like most of the other days since I have had to take on the role of Mother, Housewife and Teacher. We have got up, had breakfast, tidied out some of the boys room, done a bunch of school work, including crafts and ate at all the right meal times. The only difference was that I actually got out to the shop today. Conveniently, Tesco Express is a 5 minute walk from where I live. So I took a walk and picked up a few essential items. By essential I mean, not really TOO essential….not unless you think 4 bags of sweets and Pringles essential! These were obviously not the only things I brought! I am not a savage! I also picked items to make meals out of. The whole experience was surreal. The queue when I got there was pretty small, and I stood on the ‘X’ as marked. A One out, one in system was being used in the shop, and before long I was one of the few walking the aisles to buy supplies. The floor inside was marked with tape, placed 2 metres apart. This gave shoppers an easy way of maintaining a healthy distance from one another. That didn’t stop one fella from brushing against me on more than one occasion as he swiftly gathered what he needed to buy……knob jockey!

I got home, feeling particularly chirpy. The shop experience was one that I hadn’t been looking forward to, having seen all of the bad news on social media…but I got what I wanted, and got a tiny bit of fresh air to boot. I have to admit that it was kind of refreshing seeing how quiet it was out there. The roads were clear and there were hardly any people around. I felt quite peaceful actually…

Anyone else feel that the hours in these days are rushing by quickly? It feels like the days are rolling quickly into 1! I can’t complain, because the alternative would be painfully frustrating. I just hope that these days or months ahead of us go just as quickly…..I have been thinking about how we as a country might celebrate New Years 2021! All this should hopefully be behind us, and we can finally get back to a bit of normality….and possibly have a party to mark all parties!

  1. Nicely put…. The peace is obviously insanely deep amidst the tension. The heavens are speaking in a most unprecedented way. Seems like the world was moving a little too fast for anyone to listen and the Almighty had to stop us all and make us listen……

    Nice work mommy.
