Cocooned Day 7
Yes, I’m still here.
It’s been a week now of cocooning where essentially nothing has changed. It has just been a normal week with two subtle differences. One is that I still haven’t received my grocery delivery which I ordered about two weeks ago, and all the shops I really need are shut.
The grocery thing isn’t much of a problem as I have a well stocked pair of freezers where I had been accumulating stuff for a while. The problem is that Herself is getting sick of frozen cod and chips [which, I hasten to add, I do heat up and cook first]. She keeps demanding something different, and serving up frozen chips and cod didn’t do the trick. She’s a hard woman to please.
The shop I really need is the tyre shop. The grass is rapidly reaching the stage where I will need a scythe rather than a mower and I am on the verge of seeing if scythe shops are open, which they probably aren’t.
Daughter called up yesterday with Granddaughter the Younger. The two of them were stir crazy and Daughter wanted to have a treasure hunt in the garden. So the two of them happily played outside while I sat indoors and watched. They had a ball. Long grass or not, the Manor is a brilliant place for kids with its trees and bushes and hidden nooks and corners. Granddaughter the Younger was under strict instructions not to come into the house which confused her.
When they were leaving I stepped out for a chat. Granddaughter the Younger saw me, screeched “Grandad! I love you” and ran at me with her arms outstretched for a hug. Daughter tried to stop her but I didn’t.
A hug from a five year old happy child is well worth the risk.
What risk? Love from a grandaughter is worth so much more than the disapproval of a few jobsworth's it should be installed in legislation now. Well done.
I second that.
If only I could bottle that hug….
It's getting ridiculous here in Vermont. Our Governor has lost his marbles completely and has started acting as if the entire state was New York City when we've had a whole 17 people die from this covid-19 thing and almost all those were cooped up in nursing homes. His latest lunacy was to tell all "big box" stores to close down all aisles that have non-essential items which means just about everything except groceries, pharmacy, and hardware. Can't even buy a pen.
The real kicker is people are buying into all this crap. The next thing that's bound to happen is another executive order that everyone has to wear a mask. Kind of hard to do when none are available.
(sigh) Insanity reigns.
Rumours from the UK that the sale of Easter eggs is to be banned. I also read somewhere that compulsory face masks are mooted somewhere. I don't think it was Ireland but I'd ignore it anyway.
Bill Gates cant wait to get his vaccination into everyone so they can be traced and as soon as you reach 50 you will be terminated. Look up Utube Cornavirus Event 201 Bill Gates. In China to go into any shop you have to show an app on your phone that you are clear of the virus your very own Star of David.
Have you tried chops and kids yet – oops 😉
