This week the lock down began to ease in the UK, at least in England. Each nation is kind of doing its own thing. With the easing of restrictions and a spell hot weather, people immediately flocked to the beaches and social distancing went completely out of the window, despite calls to be sensible the day before. So disappointing to see so many people risking their lives, their children's lives and the the lives of others for a chance to lie on a beach. The seaside resort of Bournemouth actually declared a state of emergency with an estimated half a million people on the beach.
What truly grinds my ouro's was the way they left so much litter, plastic, rubbish behind, even soiled nappies for heaven's sake. Whisky. Tango, Foxtrot. Have they learnt nothing, watching people for the last few months suffering on ventilators, healthcare workers battling double shifts and putting themselves at risk for others? Totally ashamed once again of the actions of a minority representing the majority And risking the progress and sacrifices made.
Currently looking a lot quieter on the beach...

I wonder if I had Covid 19 as I was in Asia for the later part of last year and was laid up over the holidays with a flu like I'd never had. Couldn't stop coughing and I hardly ever get coughs with these seasonal bugs, and definitely not like that. Thing was, this Covid-19 hadn't yet been identified in late December, so there was no test. It lasted longer than I would've expected with an ordinary flu. Believe me, you self-quarantine just out of sheer exhaustion.Being young and healthy sure helps! Wouldn't want to spread it, but maybe I inadvertently did. Yikes.
How many are wishing they had that cabin in the woods to go visit for a spell? I mean, it's not been too bad, so far, but the grocery stores are empty, and the rumors are spreading as fast as the virus, which is pretty fast in my state... and I long for a cabin in the woods, near a little lake.
