So I have been in lockdown conditions since the 7th March this year (I started two weeks early because of a leg injury meant I had to rest). I know I know the lockdown is for my own good and I also know it is for the good of all those around me but boy is it getting to me at the moment. I have kept myself busy and I do go out for an occasional walk outside, all within the guidelines, but nonetheless this last week I have found myself yearning to be free just to go out and have a coffee with friends (pubs and restaurants are going to be a big no no for sometime to come).
This is all very self indulgent as there are many people out there who have lost loved ones or are worried sick about someone at this very moment. I know all of these things but sometimes, just sometimes, I do miss sitting in the sun and drinking a nice cup of coffee, maybe a piece of cake (no maybe I think) and watching the world go by. At least I have a wonderful garden to enjoy and at long last we’ve had some rain.
I doubt I am the only one feeling this way just at the moment. We can all dream of better times ahead.
