Before this Lockdown
Remember the good old days
When you could go out!
I hope everyone is keeping well and surviving being cooped up for weeks on end during Countrywide Lockdown?
To cheer you up, here are some photos of a tiny pink Geranium I am nurturing in my garden. It looked like it was on its last legs, but then produced these lovely flowers.
In South Africa we went into Countrywide Lockdown on 26 March for three weeks. This has just been extended another two weeks to the end of April; and may be further extended. We are not allowed out for a walk, not even to take the dog. We can only go to the local shops for essentials, such as medicines and food. No alcohol or cigarettes are on sale for the duration of the Lockdown.
Only fifty people are allowed in a shop at any one time. As a person leaves the shop another is allowed to enter. So we queue up outside, keeping our social distance of two metres. By carefully choosing my time to shop I can keep this wait down to about 30 minutes. Inside the shop everyone seems to forget about the two metre rule and just shops as usual! Fortunately, by limiting the amounts you are allowed to buy, there is stock on the shelves; though you might have to eat a little differently for a while.
Our Coronavirus stats are low compared to most countries, but we are heading into winter and flu season, so anything could still happen.
Thank goodness for the internet and many light-hearted clips to get us all through this difficult time.
Keep Safe my friends.
