The Lockdown here in the UK continues, and to be honest I'm in no hurry to get back to 'normal', or rather the 'new normal'. People are still losing their lives to the COVID-19 virus, and although according to the 'Government experts' we have reached our plateau, and deaths continue to fall, the virus is still very much alive and well (unlike it's hosts) I cannot help thinking that a second resurgence of the virus must be highly likely once lockdown is lifted (I hope not). It is scary times, and I desperately look forward to the day when we can leave our homes and feel 'safe' once more and be able to hug our family and loved ones again without fear of sickness or death. My parents are in their 80's and my husband has a rare underlying medical condition so I am acutely aware of the necessity to self isolate and follow the lockdown guidance. Though I fear I have reached the Lockdown Loopy stage myself I feel very lucky to still be healthy. I have had friends and family battle with COVID-19 but successfully beat it, though not without feeling a tad worse for wear! My blog photographs this month illustrates an example of our country's appreciation for the NHS, all the staff that risk their lives caring for others. I saw this wonderful home drawn sign close to where I live in the New Forest. My other photo shows my son delivering some necessities to us, albeit through the window as we are still self isolating.
Well I hope you and your loved ones stay safe and well. Things will not always be this way. It will get better.
