What Day is it Anyway? Thursday, 19th March 2020

Linda G. Hill came up with this great idea to keep track of the weeks and months ahead. For those who already are, and will be isolated in the coming weeks, it is important to all come together and support each other.

As this is my first post, I would like to firstly say that my heart goes out to everyone who has contracted Covid-19, those whose loved ones have been taken ill and all those who have lost someone to this horrible disease. I am thinking of you all at this terrible time.

I have also been moved by all the acts of kindness and togetherness that I have witnessed. Yes there has been a lot of fear and panic-buying but people have also been supporting each other so much. Family, friends, communities and workplaces all need to come together now more than ever and I am so pleased to hear of that happening.  Stay safe and keep supporting each other!


My day:  For the moment my work has not shut down completely but me and my colleague are on a rota system so we only have to go into office a couple of times each and we can work from home the rest of the time. Unfortunately the broadband is not coping as well as the companies providing it said it would so that has been creating some frustrations in an already difficult situation!

At lunch I went to collect an extra bag of cat food in case I end up having to spend 14 days in isolation. That alone will be difficult enough without having to ration cat food to a hungry (and very greedy!) moggy! The city was not empty of people but there were way fewer than normal and there were no queues for the buses!

The afternoon went by pretty quickly surprisingly and so has the evening! I received notice from my travel agent that I have the option of moving the holiday that me and my friend booked to later in the year. We were due to go to Crete on 3rd May. It has not been officially cancelled but the way things are heading I’m pretty sure it will be. We’re going to look into moving it at the weekend. It may sound strange but I felt so much relief when I saw that only because I feel like so much is out of my control at the moment and this is one thing that I can take back control of.

I am working from home tomorrow and I am sure that Tash will try her best to convince me to give her some lunch! And she will probably succeed too!

  1. Where do you live, Shari? I suppose most cities are pretty quiet if not completely deserted right about now.
    I’ve worried about my animals getting food too. I may go to the pet store before it closes and stock up in case the grocery stores run out.

    • I’m in Bognor Regis but I work in Chichester. They are quieter than normal but at the moment its like a quite Sunday morning every day! Yeah I would definitely stock up. Its a massive anxiety for me the thought of my cat not having enough to eat. When this is all over I plan on donating any extra food I have to the cat rescue centre.

      • Not far away from Folkestone. My aunt had a caravan there, at the bottom of the cliffs. I spent a few weekends there in the 70s, when I was visiting England. 🙂
        That’s a great idea to donate the extra! I’ll go out and get some dog and cat food tomorrow. 😀
