I just placed an on-line order for food from a local bulk-order warehouse and spent almost a month's food allowance! This feels quite scary!
So I'll now have my supplies of lentils, prunes, oats, oat milk, tea bags, pasta and nuts. And I can live on that for a while if I'm stuck at home.
I also reluctantly re-joined facebook - as I do need/want to be connected to local information sources and there's a really good local support group on there - but of course I'm now getting friend requests and I'm having that anxiety about who to accept and who to ignore! I've chosen a few close friends and some family members who I've not seen for years.
The first colleague is now self-isolating with symptoms of Covid-19.
I have a stress point in my right shoulder that is tightening up, and a stress point in my right hip that is giving me a lower back-ache. But I'm sleeping well - I thank my body for switching my conscious systems off at night and letting my body rest.
New routines are being noticed. Every morning, the man who has a car parked outside my living room window, is letting his engine run for about 20 mins or so - I guess he's trying to keep the battery going. So now I'm just shutting my window and moving into my other room until he's finished! Otherwise the fumes fill the room and are sick-making.
Today I have to venture into town to get some food items (things that are not on the bulk-order list!) .............. and, I'm going to buy myself an Easter egg!
I have two days off from work right now - so I can be here for the food delivery tomorrow, get some washing done, and spend some time doing yoga, relaxation, mindfulness, have a bath etc and try to get my stress-levels back down!
My main craft activity lately has been making face-masks. Today, I promise myself to do something different - I have a little embroidery kit that my d-i-l gave me for my last birthday - maybe I'll start that.
PS I got distracted from the embroidery and did a different craft project - see my next blog!
