This week has been a struggle. I’m beginning to feel a real cabin fever, like I need to escape somewhere. I guess, I’m not the only one with lock down restrictions, but even without them I’m not sure where I’d go. So, I’m stuck at home with the cats for company, watching Christmas movies and doing my crochet. So this weeks snapshot are of Ash.
Snapshot of Ash
Somedays I feel like I’m glued to this settee. Just like Ash. I sit here, crochet, read, watch television. I bet some would feel jealous. It’s not as good as it seems though. I would love to get up, jump in the car and go to the shops. Yes, I’d wear my mask, I don’t mind. I’d be good at social distancing I believe. I don’t actually know, because I haven’t even tried it. I’ve not been out. It’s been 37 days since I left the house at all and that was to go to the hospital.
So, I sit, glued to the settee with my cats for company and my family driving me nuts.
I think my family are fed up of each other’s company too. My eldest hasn’t left the house since March. He refuses to go out, even in the car. My daughter isn’t going to work. My husband is getting increasingly frustrated by not being able to visit his friends and family. We only have each other. Which should be good, but sometimes it isn’t. Sometimes it’s hard.
I’ve not given in to putting up the Christmas tree and decorations though. That can wait a bit longer. But, I have been watching Christmas Movies at the weekend. I get up earlier than everyone else, grab myself a cup of tea and my crochet and watch a Christmas Movie. It’s a good start to the day, a simple way of feeling good for a while. Now, if only I could make it last, or at least share the good feeling with everyone else. The chances of getting anyone else in my family to watch at Christmas Movie is a million to one! Even the kids.
What have you been doing to pass time or make yourself feel good?
