  16. I’ve been spending more time on my laptop, organising things in my bedroom, cleaning out kitchen cupboards, running around with wet wipes, disinfectant and bleach to keep going over things like light switches, cord pull, flush button on loo etc. We recently completed on a new house but as it’s difficult to buy anything we need for the renovation, almost impossible to arrange deliveries etc we’ve been making plans, writing lists, preparing boxes ready to take etc – it’s been even harder as my better half is doing all our shopping as well as for 3 neighbours and an elderly customer of his so he is ripping through supplies of wipes, gloves etc trying to reduce risks to all of us + the few days he’s made it to the new place he is having to work alone as no contact with his business partner. I’ve drawn up a rough action plan of the order to go through my belongings to decide what to throw out, what to donate to charity, things to sell on ebay (where I always donate 10%-100% of the final value to our local animal rescue charity – and I know they are struggling), and what to pack for the move. I didn’t realise quite how much ‘stuff’ I’d accumulated over the years. Luckily a couple of days before lockdown he filled his truck up twice with stuff for the tip so we did manage to get shot of some of the stuff we no longer wanted or needed (shame he included Playstations etc as games would’ve helped with the lockdown boredom but too late now!) I guess like everyone we’re doing all we can to stay as safe as possible, trying to fill our days – I’ve written a few letters to family as both of my parents were recently diagnosed with cancer so that adds to the list of worries – both of his parents were already ill and in the shielded categories. We’ve joined in the Thursday night applause for NHS and all carers – we have a residential home for the elderly next door to us to they should be able to hear and it’s been loud enough to carry to the nearby hospital too.

  17.

  30. Watching the tv (television). It is the means of up to date information via the news. Partner became quickly ‘fed up ‘ with the updates on Coronavirus.

We longed for some variety :- Entertainment, humour, etc as distraction when we have been advised to ” Stay at Home “.

    We are concerned about the current situation, we are saddened at hearing of ill health and deaths. The locals who have died and that news being in the media, people who we recognised as living and working within our communities. Present restrictions private funeral service with plans to celebrate the life lived later.

    Missing normal life of seeing :- Visiting or meeting friends and relatives. Going to the theatre, out for a meal, etc. We most certainly need some distraction. Whilst we hope and pray for better days for all. Missing church attendance also.

    Now some films and comedies, perhaps as planned for Easter holidays. Hearing the birds outside chirping is a sign of life, Spring. Getting outdoors for a bit of exercise and fresh air is nice.

Have had the time to read the local newspaper/s.
