No match found...
Just reading about government's plan B, if we go into another lockdown this winter I am not sure will I be able to cope with that again. All that loneliness, isolation, darkness...
I miss parties
The thing is, I really miss parties. I rarely get out but I do appreciate those once-in-a-month Fridays that last the whole weekend. You go and you dance and you don't stress about your job or think about your ex or anything that bothers you at that moment. I miss a lot of things, and I don't get to see my family and friends as often as I would like to, but sincerely, I miss parties the most.

There was a point during the lockdown where I was talking to my dog more often than to my friends and family. At least he listened and I could tell him everything I wanted to talk about. Some days I thought I was going mad, but then the dog reassured me that everything is fine and I'm not going mental :))

That's a good question - how has it been so far for me? I've lost track of time, friends, family. It's been a long journey. Now when I think about it, I don't know if I am OK or not. I got used to what we have now and can't remember how it was in the 'good old time'. I even stop talking to people about it. Can't talk to my family, they may not understand it and I can see my friends are just going along with the flow. For me, every day looks the same now. Life became an endless routine and I don't know how to get out of it.
They're asking/telling us to go back to work but people are too polite to say that catching a train and going into the middle of the city to sit in an office with 400 people and 3 toilets is a f*****g awful idea. Not worth dealing with them. I think I'm done to be honest
Is this the end of the world?
I am thinking to stop reading the news. For a moment I thought things are kind of getting better in this country, but I am starting to think perhaps it was better in lockdown. At least we were at home, you knew you can't go anywhere and you won't miss anything. Now I see people queuing for petrol, no lorry drivers here in the UK, they say we'll have empty tables for Christmas... and covid is still around, so what comes next? Depressing...

If nothing else, during the lockdown I managed to improve relationship with my cat, so we're now best friends ever 😂😂

We love our kids and before the lockdowns, we always thought we'll never have enough time to spend with both of the boys. But after going through homeschooling, we still love them, perhaps even more than before, but we're so happy they're back to school and my hubby and I can spend some time together, just two of us :))
I like sleeping. I could sleep 12 or 16 hours without any issues. I could even sleep more than this. Today I read an article that lie-in at weekends keeps you away from depressed. I lie-in coz I'm depressed.
Masks in an open air shop?
I am a shop assistant and work with tourists in a small open shop. There are no walls and outsid air is flowing through the roof only shop ... My boss is pushing me to wear mask all day and I can't breathe with a mask for 8 hours ... I understand the rules but should we mindlessly obey without applying logic? I can't tell my boss to f*** off as I need the job. But I'm frustrated...
It was intense and long. Unpredictable. But also it was an a lesson on what is really important in life and what people means to each other. P. S. Still I know how to cook five dishes.Read more
