Home is a word we heard a lot last year, and so far, this year has proved no different. I can’t remember how many times I’ve read or listened to someone utter what, in a way, has become a catchphrase of sorts. ‘Stay at home,’ they say, and most of us do just that.
I’ve never been at home for such an extended period. I’m no international traveller, but I do like trips to the seaside and going out with a friend for a coffee every so often. I don’t mind staying at home, though.
At least I know my family is safe, or as safe as we can be.
I’ve kept myself busy by homeschooling my daughter, watching too much TV, cooking, doing DIY and being as creative as I can. I relish spending time on my hobbies, and the lockdown has helped me appreciate how fortunate I am to have so many. If I get bored with one, I can turn to something else.
Many people have found the lockdowns difficult, and I can see why. Boredom does set in quickly, and people are becoming fatigued by the restrictions. Let’s hope the government gets it right this time and that this is the last major lockdown.
Home has never been too far from my mind during the lockdown, so I came up with this.
Just a quick note to say I received my first dose of the vaccine today. It was painless, and it’s reassuring to know that I will have some protection from the virus in a few weeks.
