Lockdown had many advantages despite what it looked like at first, because at least I felt that although on my own I was “not alone” if you see what I mean. We were all in it together.
Nobody could do anything, go anywhere or have visitors. FaceTime, Zoom and the phone plus TV were the most any of us could aspire to.
But now I am seeing pictures of people on beaches, reading of opened garden centres, people popping in to friends, people driving half way across the country to visit family, picnics in the park and visits to second homes.
And I am beginning to feel lonely again!
I dont want to drive long distances alone even if technically I am legally permitted to,( I thought that the 6 people in the garden was as of tomorrow anyway), I understand the roads are much busier again and on my brief foray to the post office 3 miles away the other week, I saw some lunatic driving which made me wonder about some people’s eyesight!
No, what I am feeling is that “easing” lockdown is creating much more of a “them and us” situation. Those prepared to take risks and those who think nothing has changed in 10 weeks, except that with 8,000 new cases every day perhaps the danger is even greater!
And being on my own is brought home to me even more.
