    Corona virus is such a worry isn’t it? I’m feeling very mixed about the decisions made yesterday – on the one hand, it will be hard to maintain a lock-down for very long so I can understand trying to wait for the right moment but equally there is that concern that we need to be doing all we can to limit the spread now. I worry a lot about my friends who have chronic health conditions and elderly relatives who are more vulnerable, although I’m less worried about myself. I can understand Star’s fears. I’m glad that all seems well with your heart and lungs on checks – that must be reassuring for you and I do hope that you all manage to keep well. I’m finding the updates from The Brick Castle very informative at the moment too. #WotW

    Yes, keep safe. I guess people’s attitudes will probably go in waves. Heightened awareness when it comes close to home and then lethargy at other times. I’m glad the schools are keeping up the message. The NHS posters (wash your hands, you dirty pig) went up immediately, thanks to some concerned 6th formers. I’m following Jenny’s updates too. Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a good weekend.

    I keep swapping between not really worrying then majorly stressing over the coronavirus. I was more stressed about getting shopping than anything this week.
    My great aunt is majorly panicking and is refusing to go out or let many people in. She’s 80 odd and has been quite unwell with COPD. I can understand her worries.
    Aww! Poor Star. Bless her.
    Sending love and hugs x

    Its a worrying time, I am concerned for Jack but being 19 we cant make him stay in, I honestly don’t think a lock down is far away it’s already happening in Spain. You are right its wrong to be complacent but then also difficult decide when to start staying at home. Being prepared is the way forward, stay safe and lets hope its a shorter situation than we all fear.

    I hope we all will err on the side of safety, if not for ourselves, for the sake of community. Even if we’re not at risk, we all know and love people who are. Praying corona virus stays far away from you and your family, Anne! We’ve only had one case diagnosed in our county so far, but I’m certain it’s only because we’ve not had many tested.

    Thanks Anne, I do really appreciate your endorsement. I couldn’t really have any other word right now, there’s so much news at the moment it’s become an all day (and night) job. I have always believed that you should know your enemy and better understand them, and then they aren’t so scary. I guess I’ve had a while to get used to what is coming, and a lot of what is happening i could watch from a while back, but I’m still completely blown away by it. I know for some people in the UK even today they have absolutely no idea about what is about to happen, and we can’t even tell them exactly what that is. It’s scary, but we are all in it together and no-one is on their own x
