I thought for today’s post it might be nice to do a welfare check. To see how you are all doing. So how are you? What have you been up to?
It is a hard time for many right now. Many of us are scared or nervous about how a pandemic can change our world. Others are struggling because they have lost their jobs and who knows if they will be able to get another one.
Mental health is a real concern for so many people too, especially those that live alone. Whether you are in lockdown or not.
Melbourne is still in lockdown, stage 4, but there is light at the end and we hope that that will change as we get to the end of September. The numbers are right now down and that is so good. I have to stay I haven’t disagreed with how our state premier has dealt with the crisis at all. I just hope it is enough that we don’t have a third wave.
Me, giving you my welfare check
I’m still baking bread, though I have had to stop baking cakes so much, my husband was complaining about his weight and how much he was eating. Still, I will do more, just not as much.
It has been strange when I think about 12 months ago and how into social media I was and now I just can’t be bothered. I hardly ever post on Instagram or Facebook anymore. There doesn’t seem a lot of point. Perhaps this time that I have been stuck at home has given me another focus in life.
With Dave working from home I am looking after him and I like it. I enjoy cooking his meals and making the home a good place for him to work in.
So, overall I’m doing okay. I won’t lie and say I can’t wait to get out and take photos again, but I know when that does happen I will probably still want to stay home a lot. Home is a place I really enjoy and I do love the kitchen.
One of the biggest changes as been here. It has been so good to see how many of you have embraced the change in the blog and I am really enjoying it again. Thank you.
So that is my welfare check.
How about you?
While I hope you are doing well too, I encourage you to call people and make sure they are doing well.
It has amazed me how I have hardly heard from any of my friends. I decided that I am nearly always the one that does the contacting, so I am now not doing that. You know what, I really was the one doing all the calling for nearly all of my friends as I never hear from them. Sad really.
Give a friend a call.
So who will you call?
Here are some photos of Docklands. I used to get so bored taking photos there, all the time, but now I can’t wait to get back there.
