Me, Myself & I - part two

Welcome back. this is part two of my new mini series, 'Me, Myself & I'.

For me, this is the end of my 2nd week of working from home. Strange to do it full time? yes, but by yesterday I feel like I have found my strid and I'm starting to get into my new routine. For those of you that follow my blog, you know I have a day job as a civil servant, with writing being my homework and long term dream.  

So another week of lockdown has passed. Do I feel affected? absolutley. Whether or not the effects are all good or not, I don't know. i know the cabin fever may well set in over the next few days. Yes, I have braved the local supermarket to pick up supplies, but that in itself is being a task in itself and doesn't hold the same joy it once would, I now feel like I have a lot of pressure on me to only buy certain items over others and like I will be judged if I buy than that. 

I've rediscovered my love of baking and I've found I'm trying new ways of baking, trying new things I haven't done before. My other half is loving that, I'm lucky that he never fails to sniff out the new cake, or biscuits that I have made and snarf them as fast as I can bring them out of the oven. 

I'm concerned about the long term affects of staying indoors for the long periods of time and what this will mean for me. I'm worried I will end up with a feeling of agorophobia, that I'm not going to want to leave the safety of the flat, but at the same time, I'm almost desperate to go outside and stand in the middle of a big wide open space. 

I'm nervous about what the virus is going to mean for the public as a whole. What is the virus going to do to society as we knew it? Will we recover from this? who knows. I'm sad for the number of people who have already lost their lives to this virus and how many more will lose their lives before we see the back of the virus, if we will ever see the back of the virus. 

To help to settle my mind, I have continued to crochet my blanket squares to carry on with my other pet project, a handmade patchwork style blanket. I'm also reading a few books to allow me to carry on adding reviews to the site. 

There isn't really anything else I can add at the moment so I'll leave it there. I'll see you all next week for part three. 

Take care, stay safe x
