Alone, we bare it !

Has your daily routine been affected by the covid-19 epidemic ?  We have been a little more restricted to staying within our own home, although that hasn't been such a major change it has been more noticed when we have really wanted to be with other members of our small family. We don't usually have a 'travel' lifestyle these days, we have some routine journey's that tend to become extended just to feel more connected with the real world. Our poor mobility has been an issue for us for quite a few years now, the onset of covid-19 has just sealed us both more than ever indoors.

Our family cannot visit, apart our niece Lisa who is in our 'bubble' and keeps us up to date with food supplies and more vitally with medical supplies. Even then we all have to wear masks and Lisa also wears a visor. It's funny I suppose when we three are family, naked & wearing protection from an invisible but deadly virus.  We talk to people on the phone at least once every day but we do feel isolated and it's seemingly going to be for a few more months yet.

  1. Hang in there, Patrick. My personal opinion is that the lockdowns and economic contraction will harm more people than the virus, but since I’m not in charge my opinion doesn’t really matter. I’m in central Texas, and our state government’s response hasn’t been nearly as bad as some. As a result, there hasn’t been too much of a change in my life. Businesses require masks indoors, and some reasonable effort at keeping one’s distance, but the stores, restaurants, etc. are mainly open for business. I hope the UK opens up enough soon to reduce the isolation you’re feeling.
