Welcome to number 10 of the Sunday thought posts. It’s lashing down and blowing a gale outside, it’s been like this for the last couple of days. It seems to be a pattern that April is summer and June is a wash out.
My emotions feel very much like the weather. We are entering a new phase of lockdown tomorrow and I’m not going to lie, it worries me. I’d got quite comfortable in my Covid bubble, being at home almost all the time apart from walks or shopping. This new normal is scary, having to interact with people again and worried when I see all the people planning trips to Ireland or trips away. I hate to be negative but I feel there will be a second wave and I’m scared.
I wouldn’t want to be travelling anywhere at the moment. Even on brief shopping trips I notice the majority of people aren’t wearing face masks or social distancing. It’s like because we are entering a new phase it’s all over….but it isn’t….and who knows how many more people will die before it is over, and that seems to be the reality of it.
Gosh this is a depressing read. Sorry folks, when I start typing everything comes out, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
When I look back to myself as a teenager I thought people over 50 had all the answers and knew how to ‘life’. Now that I’m in that age bracket I realise I still haven’t a notion and I’m always looking for someone to be the adult. Am I alone in that or do others still find themselves floundering in certain situations?
Let me know what you think.
