Yesterday was a bit of an "off" day for me.
I browsed a few blogs but didn't feel like posting or commenting.
It had been announced on Wednesday evening that the first virus related death had occurred here on the island and that the number of cases testing positive had also risen sharply, and now continues to increase rapidly day by day, with more hospital admissions.
I know that our statistics may seem trivial compared with the huge numbers suffering elsewhere in the world but I still felt the shock of that first tragedy within our small community.
P went out for his usual run across the fields and then went to pick up supplies from the shop, but I couldn't bring myself to step outside. I felt more insecure, even though we are in a rural area with nobody passing by.
However, I am amusing myself in a rather immature way. For the past week or so I have been messaging my sister and my niece on a daily basis, swapping news and gossip and just checking up on each other. My niece is working from home and is also having to home-school her little girl. Sometimes she finds it a struggle to keep her, and her little brother, occupied without being able to go further than the back garden. I have discovered that my 'phone camera has an option which uses filters on the selfie function to distort and superimpose features over your own face. I have been sending one a day to little Poppy for her amusement (similar to the Christmas Elf series we shared in December). I am not sure how many I will be able to send her but this was my first one. (I do not look like this in real life - honestly).
Even with the distortion I can see how worried you are, lolReplyDelete
Ha, ha. I really look like a young Elizabeth Taylor!! (I wish)Delete
Sorry you have been feeling blue JayCee. This goddamn virus affects us in plenty of strange ways and that is without contracting the thing! 114 cases and 1 dead on the Isle of Man. Please make sure that neither you nor Peregrine add to the numbers.ReplyDelete
I am doing my best but I just can't keep P indoors for long. He is like a caged animal.Delete
A caged animal that keeps bursting out if its cage by the sound of it. You may need to contact a local vet to administer a heavy sedative.Delete
National Velvet? You were fantastic in that Liz.ReplyDelete
Shame I am allergic to horses though.Delete
Lovely idea though.ReplyDelete
She seems to enjoy the "Funny Auntie Jaycee" pictures anyway.Delete
So that's the fringe you wrote about in the last post! It didn't change that, did it!ReplyDelete
It did distort it even more Tasker. It's not quite that wonky in real life!Delete
Keep safe. I know it is hard not to worry when it gets so close but you're isolating yourselves as n=much as possible. Now you just need stuff like that to keep your mind busy. My daughters send those photos but I've never worked out how to do it myself. Well done.ReplyDelete
I am obviously quite immature as I find the pictures as amusing as my 7 year old great niece does.Delete
Keep safe over there Linda x
Keep safe JayCee.ReplyDelete
You too Yael xDelete
Oh that's how you do it! I remember my middle grandson going through this stage about five years ago. He's grown out of it now...ReplyDelete
Ha, ha, I am a late developer Vronni.Delete
