My day: For much of the duration of lock-down I’ve been more or less able to keep track of the days, but for some reason I have been losing track of the last few weeks. No idea why but I woke up this morning convinced it was Saturday. Checking my phone and seeing Thursday left me very disappointed.
My sister and her husband have a seagull family nesting on their roof and she’s been telling me how one fell off! He’s fine luckily and landed in their garden, but he’s now stuck down there until he can fly. The RSPB said to leave him alone as the parents will still look after him but they haven’t been that much as they have two more on the roof. So my sister has been giving him some food too as she was worried he wasn’t getting enough. He’s been named Steven (after Steven Seagal!) and now waits outside the backdoor for her to come out and feed him. And if she doesn’t he starts squeaking until she does! She also been leaving her guinea pig hutch open at night (she brings the guinea pigs inside overnight) so he has somewhere to sleep! I think his siblings are jealous that they didn’t fall off the roof too!
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.
