In some ways this year has gone so fast but in other ways, it has felt like the longest year of my life.
It’s a year today since Boris put us in full lockdown for the first time. A while 365 days.
Covid really has changed everyone’s lives in such a short time.
I remember watching the announcement and we all knew it was coming but it seemed so impossible at the same time. To lockdown a whole country. It happened. We knew it would but it was still so shocking.
I think in that moment, keyworkers were made. Non essential work was stopped. Jonny was home with us for almost 4 months. If you were still at work, you were key to the community and I have so much respect for everyone that has worked throughout this pandemic.
I will never forget the panic buying, the lack of toilet roll and pasta. I felt like I was in an apocalyptic movie.
How has it been a year since that?!
My heart goes out to anyone that has lost someone they care about a love over the past year. I lost my Nan. Not to covid but it was horrible. We couldn’t visit in hospital and her funeral was so small. She was almost 100 when she died and would have loved a funeral with everyone there to say goodbye to her.
Mental Health has been hit hard too. We are all struggling. I don’t think I have ever struggled so much as I have the last year and that is saying something considering my mental health past.
We are not all in the same boat but we are in the same storm.
It feels like there is light at the end of this very long tunnel, thank goodness.
I have had my Vaccine and they seem to be getting through them quickly.
Schools are back and after the year of homeschooling that is incredible news.
I just can’t even get my head around that all this actually happened.
I hope everyone is doing OK. My inbox is always open if anyone ever needs a chat too❤
