Please don’t think I personally am in any way mocking the latest ease in restrictions within the UK. I think it is a very kind and helpful idea that will make a difference to some.
But I have already had six text messages from people asking me if I want to be in a bubble! Spoilt for choice. One of them is my ex (you know the one before I met Goldfinch), and the answer is “NO WAY”!!!
I have had three male friends ask me…and I think they are asking every female in their contacts. I have two female friends who have said for weeks they were struggling with loneliness. Both of them are alone in this country with their family in other European lands (or the mainland as my beloved Goldfinch used to call it).
I thought I would suggest they team up together. I am working so many days, I am not sure I want a friend staying at my place and making a mess. I would have more cleaning to do on my day off.
Or…maybe they would do the cleaning while I was at work…and the laundry and ironing. Maybe they would cook dinner for me so when I came home from work I could just relax. Actually…a bubble is suddenly sounding like a great idea!
But I am fussy…perhaps I will advertise my requirements for a bubblemate. They would have to be clean and preferably vegetarian. Non-smoker goes without saying. There is nowhere to park a car here. Someone who didn’t have loads of stuff. I don’t have much storage here as it is. Someone who can make a mean cup of tea!
