Is it only day three, seems much longer, but then we have been staying inside self isolating most of the week. And today is a good day to hunker down. The temperature has dropped, and it’s been raining quite hard.

One of the downsides of being in lockdown is that our heat pump has not yet been fixed. We will have to wait out the four week period, which may well be extended another couple of weeks, will just have to wait and see. Then I hope we will get to see the repairman soon after when all non essential businesses are up and running again - hope the weather doesn’t get too wintry.
The Prime Minister and Government officials (Health, Police, Civil Defence, whoever is appropriate on the day) front a daily TV conference, telling us numbers of new cases, answering reporters questions. We are encouraged to keep abreast of changes through the official website, Covid 19. So we are kept well informed, and there is plenty of transparency on all the Government actions in this current State of Emergency.
And although we are in lockdown, we can leave the house to purchase groceries or medical reasons, go outside for exercise as long as we keep well distanced from others, but are to stay in our local communities. I incorrectly said we can go out for drives in the car in the last blog, this is not correct, as car trips must be for essential reasons only. We are both pottering around and keeping busy inside. There’s been several new recipes tried for dinner, one or two not worth repeating but at least we are trying new things. Been keeping in touch with friends and family by phone and snap chats, so that’s good, even had a phone call from our Probus Club to make sure we were OK. Stay safely at home everyone, and be kind to yourselves, and your housemates, we are all in this together.
