News reports yesterday said that ‘one to four’ cases of the Coronavirus are now in Lincolnshire. Both Hubby and I have been trying to find out exactly where, but it would appear that unless five cases are reported in one location, less won’t be given out.
That makes me SO angry.
Lincolnshire is the largest county in the UK. I am therefore unlikely to cover it all on foot, BUT with our existing health care being all over the place, travelling some 80 miles in one direction or 40 to 45 in another two, plus 170 to Cheltenham for my mammogram (due in September so luckily not immediate) it leads to anxious times and a quandary as to what to do to keep ourselves safe.
We are taking all the precautions as recommended as well as avoiding anyone with coughs or colds. I had to tell one guy on my walk this morning to back off as he is usually chatty and you can’t get away. I explained I was getting over a cold as he was coughing and spluttering across the road and he said him too. I told him I was therefore keeping my distance and that I wasn’t being rude, but please not to come any closer. He continued to cross the road towards me, even though he had been going in the opposite direction. I put my hand up and told him to keep away, ending up actually turning my back as I was talking to him and walking off voicing my apologies. I hate doing that, but I’m not taking an chances as I don’t know where he’s been or who’s he’s been socialising with.
This is a major problem for us. Simple things like walking the dog, going to darts or SW, or even shopping exposes us to the unknown and if there is a case near us we should know.
Everyone is in a similar situation so can you blame people for being afraid to go anywhere?
We’ve stayed home today as we had no shopping to do anyway, so as Hubby was working outside in the greenhouse, I’ve been making cards.
Oh what fun……………… not, and I only managed to make four.
My hands have been playing up and the little perforations on the kits……….well, weren’t. At least this time I didn’t nick myself with the scalpel, and after three hours ended up with an experiment which sort of worked after I realised I’d put one half of the trimmings on upside down, 2 cameo cards and a bits and bobs which actually worked out quite well.
Keep safe everyone.
