aI know this started as a weekly feature, but honestly each day and week is like groundhog day, There really has been nothing exciting going on, so to keep you up to date on the exciting life in the StressedMum household here is my latest diary of a menopausal Mum – week I don’g care. In case you missed my last post you can find it here
Catch Up From My Last Post
As I am unable to get an online delivery, I am having to brave the shops again this week. Why are the shelves still so empty surely everyone has stocked up on everything by now. Honestly I got the last bread loaf and meat unless you wanted mince, chicken or bacon it was pretty much empty. I had plenty of this in the freezer so didn’t need these although I did buy a leg of lamb.
We see adverts every two minutes but still it seems that some people do not think social distancing applies to them. Today I had enough and had a little rant on Facebook, which I will share below (and please ignore the swear word as I never usually swear on here)
When will people understand what social distancing means. It means keep the fuck away from others. Not visiting each others houses, not going out to garden centres for coffee and cake. Not having family over. This will go on for longer and can increase the chances of those doing everything right catching it or bringing it into the house. It is dangerous for those who are vulnerable. So please just stick to the rules. They are for everyone you are not special and they do apply to you
And I mean it, I have a child who is vulnerable that it could be fatal if she gets it. I am living in fear of it coming in the house and her coming into contact with it. If she gets it she will be taken to hospital on her own, be fighting the battle on her own while we are stuck at home not knowing. We can do it, I am the one who goes out to reduce the risk.
I popped to our local garage earlier as needed milk, most people keep social distance and are respectful apart from the complete idiot who can and stood next to me and leant across. Yes I understand you just want to get in and out as quickly as possible, but so do I am the rest of the shop. Be respectful, if you have to stand back for a minute then do it. You may be ok but how do you know. Look at a video I recently shared on my Facebook page about contamination.
A Night Out
Last Saturday my husband and I had a night out. Ok it was a night out that is different to a normal night out but in these times it is what is normal. We are lucky that my husbands studio where he works from is at the end of our garden, this is also where he escapes to play his guitars etc as well.
So we showered and changed and headed to the studio where he gave me a solo performance and I sang along, we then had a virtual meet up with friends. Not the same as meeting up in person but was still lovely to do.
Once Again a Huge Thank You
We need to all say thank you to those who are carrying on day and night for us, so lets say thank you to them for working hard this week.
- The NHS staff
- The shop workers
- The public transport workers and cab drivers getting these staff to work
- Everyone else who is out there working hard
I have heard harrowing stories of how these workers have been treated, so from me at StressedMum a huge thank you for all you are doing.
How has your week been?
