Today is 1 year since the World Health Organisation declared Covid-19 as a pandemic.
Today, on this anniversary, is when I have had my first vaccination.
What a year this has been for the world. In the scheme of things this year has been okay for my husband, dog and me.
So many positives this year, I am very grateful and fortunate and I know for so many this year has been very hard.
My husband and I have not fallen out despite him working from home. I have actually made more friends in the Guild because the zoom meetings lend themselves better to getting to know each other rather than in a large room where I feel overwhelmed. Our Blogville calls on a Sunday have been wonderful and a cherished part of my week. The WhatsApp chats with my friends in the northwest of England have been a wonderful way of connecting and has made up for my cancelled trip to see them.
When I think of the financial or emotional hardship, loss of life, or overwhelming loneliness during lockdown that so many have experienced this year, I really am so lucky that all we’ve had is a holiday re-scheduled twice. In the scheme of things we have got off very lightly.
