Easter Sunday has come around. It is the middle of the night and I’m wide awake. Again. Life on lockdown is doing weird things to my sleep pattern which was already disrupted due to my work. So once again, I find myself at my laptop while it is dark outside and most people appear to be fast asleep.
One thing this whole lockdown experience has taught me is I would never survive in prison. Even with all the creature comforts of home it really has been a struggle over the past week or so. The isolation has been the worst part. I have relatives that I need to shop for and keep supplied as well as checking on their welfare, but any visit has to be fleeting with us staying in separate rooms. For the rest of the days I have been stuck indoors.
I am really missing visits to the forest, coast and countryside. That is my natural environment and where I feel happiest. Being denied access to those areas has been tough. I think it has affected me both physically and mentally. Normally I’d be wide awake really early and ready to head off, mostly to the forest.
But you’ve just got to take a deep breath, count to ten and restart each day as if it was the first day of lockdown.
I’m going to try and get back to some sort of normality on this site as well and concentrate more on my usual content rather than the ‘Corona Diaries’.
