It has been a very odd time…with holy week passing without really knowing it and then Good Friday and Easter Sunday coming and going without church or family gatherings. I emailed our local seafood provider to see if they were delivering and they were, so I placed an order.
I think it is really important that we try and support as many of our local shops as possible during this time, instead of relying solely on Coles and Woolworths – as we want the little guys to still be around when our lives return to some normality.
And normality won’t be that switch that just automatically is turned on. It can never happen that way. I think we need to grieve the loss of ‘normality’ and make the most of what we’ve been left with. Holding onto this idea that normality will be back in 2 weeks time is bad for your mental health – not to mention bad for the health and well-being of your fellow Australian citizens.
Life in lock down is tough – I get it. I understand it is hard to have all your children home and to home school and to work from home. I get it – I’m trying to juggle it all too. But just stay at home and follow the rules and think about the teachers who might be in the at risk groups, who are just asked to step up and forget about their own safety as they go through the school gates and social distancing and hand washing are forgotten.
