Have you ever walked up to the door of a store and seen a sign that says, “Back in 45 mins” but no indication as to what time the sign was placed. Could have been 5 minutes ago or 40 minutes ago, you either have to wait 40 minutes for 5 minutes????
That’s what it feels like now, we know things will open up eventually, but is it going to be 2, 4, 6 or 8 weeks and what will be open when.
We have a wedding to go to in August, we have no idea if we will get there right now.
There are so many unknowns right now it could be due to the UK enforcing a 2 week quarantine on people coming in, or it could be there is still a travel advisory in place and therefore we would have no travel insurance.
So we wait…
Through the eyes…
…the home worker
This weekend was one of my better ones in the last while. I went for a physically distanced walk with my best friend here (besides Derek) for the first time in two months. It was so great to catch up, even when life isn’t all sunshine and roses.
I also got a chance to FaceTime with my sister who had a baby 3 weeks ago. I can’t imagine how hard it must be being new parents and not being able to see anyone.
As far as moving goes, Derek and I managed to get a ton packed. We have specific rooms of the house scheduled each weekend. We did 4 storage closets, which required a lot of gin and chips to keep us going. Of course we don’t want to pack any excess weight so we have to drink all the liquor before we go.
Monday is grocery day, so off I went to pick up the usual items, bread, milk etc.
We are working through the freezer and cupboards so we don’t to throw out anything, although I did make a comfort food that my dad made from time to time. Steak simmered in an onion gravy with mash and corn, well with dad it would be peas but the home worker does does not like peas that much.
Sent the info off to the movers, who will be here 4 weeks tomorrow, glad we have a plan to get things packed.
Your analogy of the sign in the shop window is spot on. I wish you the best with your move.
