Good morning, everyone. It's stupid o'clock and I'm wide, wide awake with a brain that seems to be going round in circles so I thought I'd start my morning routine early rather than toss and turn and get nowhere. It's dry outside and the forecast is quite good today which is nice.
It's good because I've arranged to meet Jeff at the allotment where he seems to think he can get some work done today, although he'll make a decision when he sees the condition of the soil. It's outdoor work and socially solo so I'm sure he will be OK. I can't stay anyway as I will be going to help out at Slimming World where the consultant has put certain measures in place so it should be OK. I know a number of our members won't be going now so I feel some group support is needed.
Then it's back to the allotment to pay Jeff. Very important as, what with the bad weather cancellations plus the current situation, his finances have taken a big hit, I think.
Later on I have tuition which is just down the road. The family I go to are all fit and healthy and will let me know if there are any issues, as I will them, and I don't have to get close to anyone outside so it's as OK as anything is.
Yesterday (I'm doing this backward today!) I decided to cancel my school based responsibilities and I don't think it was a surprise to the school, so I stayed inside in the afternoon. I also got an email to say that the governors' conference I was supposed to attend on Saturday has been cancelled and will hopefully be rescheduled in the Autumn term. We will see.
I checked with the school to see if they still want me to go in next week for my scheduled Governor's visit and that's been cancelled.
However, I am still keeping up my personal training sessions. They are one to one and as 'safe' as anything can be and, again, I want to support a local business as well as a friend for as long as I can.
I won't be going to pottery though. That's quite a different scenario and, actually, I expect they will be cancelled anyway.
It's all change and I expect you have your own changes that you've made in the light of yesterday's developments. Whatever you do or don't do, please stay safe and cheerful as much as you can. xx
No WI, no choir rehearsal or concerts. I have set up a Facebook group with private settings for choir to keep in touch with each other, give support and post music, photos, poetry, what ever floats their boat!. From now on I am self isolating with my husband but if the weather is good we will walk around the countryside around here at times when others are very unlikely to be about. Apart from that it is twice daily phone calls to Mum in Manchester. You do what you have to.ReplyDelete
Yes, we all do. What a good idea about the Facebook Group for the choir. I'm sure everyone will appreciate it very much.Delete
All my groups and trips have been cancelled and I gave notice to stop the few lessons I do.ReplyDelete
All the children were saying that their schools were stopping on Friday but I don't know if that's true or not. They are all Church run schools which may make a difference.
That's a shame about the pottery ... is is possible to get some suitable clay to carry on at home?
It's true, as we now know.Delete
I have some air dry clay which I might have a go with. Not the same but better than nowt!
Well it is pretty much the same all over the world right now. So how it makes me feel a union with people everywhere knowing we are all facing the same thing right now. Everything here in California, USA is either shut down, postponed and or limited in some way. But as another blogger I read a few minutes ago said "We will get though it." God will see to that, I am sure. God bless you all.ReplyDelete
That's a good point to make, Susan. We're all in the same boat, all around the world. A shame that realisation has to come this way.Delete
Bless you too.
Most things here have been cancelled as well, so I am grateful to be in an area where I can still get out and enjoy the outdoors. Stay well. XReplyDelete
Good point. Providing petrol is OK, I may take more trips to Hyde Hall.Delete
