After 5 weeks of Lockdown

At this point in the lockdown I am not sure that being a ‘busy’ person is a blessing or a curse. I am the sort of person who never gets bored and I always have a never-ending list of things to do. During lockdown my lists have been out of control. A few things have been ticked off but not half as many as I would have liked.

After 3 weeks of Lockdown

Hello fellow isolators!

It is a couple of weeks since I have been in touch, how are you all doing? I hope that you and you dear ones are all well. It is great to see the curve flatten but I am sure you agree that albeit inconvenient we must continue to keep our distance.

What is going on?

This is the first time I have logged on in ages.

My poor blog has been forgotten in the past few months due to a VERY busy life trying to manage 4 part time jobs, burning the candle at both ends taking my son swim training, and trying but failing to nurture my theatre obsession.

Now most things have ground to a halt, there is a little time to reflect and put life into perspective, my 101in1001 things won’t get done – was that also too much pressure? Hopes and dreams have been dashed. Lives have changed forever.
