Morning All, Tea. The first thought I had when my face was still squashed against the pillow, my arms bent at the elbow so that each hand rests warmly in between pillow and sheet.

Today marks the 8th Friday of Lockdown. Exactly 8 weeks ago, South Africans were told to stay home. 56 days ago. I wish I didn’t have to mention the word lockdown. It’s a little tired term.

On CNN last night, before Ozark ( got to end of Season 1 eventually and now definitely in love with Marty - to… Continue reading Lockdown Diaries Number ?
It’s Tuesday today! Happy Tuesday everyone! 21 April 2020. Day 25 (or 26?) of Lockdown I think, not sure, but 5am. That I know. Fat lot of good that did, sweeping the ‘ol driveway then yesterday huh? The wind started gusting away yesterday morning, blowing the poor bougainvillea around which is desperately clinging to the… Continue reading Lockdown Diary Number Whatever
Hullo World, Morning to you all! Are you ready to start another week? Do you feel like you’ve had a little weekend break or does every day feel the same in lockdown for you?
