Dr Tanya is our 5 Things hostess and this week asks
What 5 “Skills” Have You “Lost” In The Pandemic.
I miss my darts nights and SW group sometimes. It was two nights of the week I would meet and chat to different people and do something different with my time. Saying that, we still see our friends, albeit keeping our distance, and I have my puppy fixes.
We used to enjoy browsing the shelves and aisles, treating ourselves to whatever we fancied above the basics. Now it’s a case of being armed with a list, masked and getting in and out of the shop as fast as possible.
I was never really patient to begin with, but now I get frustrated and annoyed by unmasked and groups of people standing around chatting who don’t give a damn about anyone else. They seem to be forever in my way when I shop.
Gone are the days when we would have a field trip just for the hell of it and perhaps end up in a large shopping mall to check out a different range of shops. Now if we go out it’s for a specific reason and the sooner we’re home the better.
I have lost interest in food so our diet, although not exactly bland and is still varied, relies on ‘old faithful’ recipes and meals. It hasn’t got to the stage of specific meals on specific days of the week but sometimes it’s close. I’m trying to get out of that though.
