Should I reset my alarm? It’s normally set for 6.15am on weekdays and 8am on the weekends so I can get up and spend some quiet time with God before everyone else starts to move. Now that everyone is working from home no one is really moving before about 8.30am so I could shift it a bit – or leave it and use the extra time for something else? Thoughts?
I’ve never been more grateful for the sunshine. In the midst of everything that’s going on in the world, it just makes me feel better.
I wonder when my daughter will come home? We were chatting through her options yesterday. Her school in California has gone online and her two roommates are leaving to go home on Tuesday so she could come home too. She’s not keen on the idea of being on her own especially with all the social distancing but she also has FOMO if everything clears up and goes back to normal quicker than expected. I’d love her to come back but I also want her to be sure she’s doing the right thing for her. I don’t want to put pressure on her.
I wonder if we’ll be able to go on holiday in July? It’s hardly important in the current climate but just a thought.
Will I be able to claim any money back for lost business? I’ve worked out that with the bookings I had in the diary I’ll be losing out on something like 26 days if the schools stay shut until the summer break (which seems to be what is expected). I’m going to try to use the time to do other things that I don’t normally get round to – like my website for example. If necessary I could get another job though. The supermarkets are looking for more staff right now.
Will I do more writing or less? I’m having another wobble about writing at the moment. I don’t know whether to keep going or quit.
Should I try to get a telephone appointment with the doctor? I’m not sick but I’ve been wondering about whether I should try coming off the antidepressants? They don’t want us to bother the NHS right now unless it’s an emergency though, and it’s not that. Does anyone know how you get off these things? Can I do it safely without a doctor’s advice? I’m on a very low dose.
I have a gift card to use up before June. Not quite sure if that’s going to be possible? It’s maybe my own fault for holding on to it so long but I was hoping to buy a couple of new outfits for this summer with it. It’s for one of the nearby shopping centres. Maybe I could use it for food shopping or just go to the clothes shops one day and keep my distance from everyone? I feel bad for the shops and businesses that are losing out because of this virus. I know we have to be sensible to avoid spreading it but so many people are losing their livelihoods too. That could have a knock on effect that lasts way longer than COVID-19.
I probably should disinfect the door handles and surfaces again but today is Mother’s Day in the UK so it’s going to wait till tomorrow. I want to relax today. I got the sweetest card with the most lovely words in it today from my kids along with some beautiful flowers. I am blessed.
If you’ve got this far, thanks for reading my random ramblings. Stay safe and don’t forget to wash your hands. 🤗
