I have to admit this is a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. While the pandemic seems to be over, COVID is still out there.
It seems that I am being ridiculous to continue my voluntary lockdown at home and should be going out. I mean I know there will come a point and I have to, but that doesn’t mean the idea of it doesn’t scare the hell out of me.
Last year I did go out in between lockdowns, but it wasn’t as scary because the variants that were around weren’t as contagious. Omicron has been a game-changer. I’ve been so reluctant to leave the house because of how contagious it is.
I am vaccinated and I’ve had the booster, but you can still get very sick with all that. I always think you might not know you have an underlying health issue until you get COVID. Maybe I am being overly dramatic, but I can’t help it. I have been told a lot that I will get it eventually, but I’m not so sure. However, while I might end up with it, that doesn’t mean I should go out of my way to catch it. I would do the same thing with colds and flu.
I have decided that I will go out and am spending the day with a friend soon, and then going for high tea with some other friends. May as well jump right in.
So having said that I think it will be important to be sensible about it all as well. So the trip out for photos will be somewhere more remote and not the city. Out of the city, I think. We are just going to drive and see where the road takes us.
The high tea, hopefully, will be fine. We are driving in and will be parking close by.
I think the only thing that really really scares me is Public Transport. You are meant to wear masks on them, but I know people won’t. That is what happened previously. I have made the decision to stay away from it for now.
So, I am going to leave the house and hope that I am safe and don’t catch anything. Fingers crossed.
Have you been going about your life normally?
I’ve chosen some photos taken last year. I bit of most places that I went to. I hope you enjoy them.
