Five Days Down, No Idea How Many Days To Go

Slate, Drawing, Black, Dark, WhiteIt’s been five days since the Prime Minister made it very clear that many people were not taking social distancing seriously enough.

This week has felt very different from the week before. So far, so good. At least in the area where I live that is the case. There is a real difference. I am deeply grateful for that.

I know it must be hard for many. The thing is…we are in this for the long haul. If it’s not already, it will become challenging for everyone. But I am so glad that there is so much evidence of unselfish love in this area. The vast majority of people have adjusted their normal routine and habits because they care about life. Remember when it becomes challenging that you are showing love, the very best thing about humans is love!

Thank you!

  1. I haven’t left my neighborhood since last Tuesday when they told me I no longer had to empty the book drop at work. I get out of the house to walk my dog around the neighborhood and that’s it. I wish others would do the same

    1. I have seen a huge difference here. I know the police are out and about asking people where they are going etc. I know of at least one person who was issued a fine when he went out five times in a day (instead of just once for exercise or shopping).

      I walk to and from work each day (I have not used public transport in four weeks) but I notice some people eye me suspiciously. I guess the clothes I wear for work make it clear I am not exercising or shopping. I feel like putting a sign on my head to say I am an NHS worker.

      But I don’t want to be paranoid. I just respect that most people are doing their best to do as asked. I suppose there may be a few silly billies out there who do not care, but I try not to think of them.

  2. We are self-isolating at the moment – not because any of us has it (to the best of our knowledge) but because we don’t want to be in danger of catching it from anyone else.
