Not just the weather, although that has been swinging to and fro between bright, sunny days then howling gales and heavy rain.
Our current lockdown is set to be in place for at least another six weeks, thanks to the ferry worker who brought in the Kent variant last month and started this whole mess off all over again. It spread like wildfire around all the schools first and then into the older adults from there. New cases every day, although most of them now seem to be contained within isolating households.
Whoever thought that arranging a house move in the midst of a pandemic was a good idea must be an idiot. Oh wait...that'll be me then.
Our buyers are now into the Survey Squeeze Game. Trying to see how much they can knock off the purchase price because of all the dubious defects their surveyor friend found. P doesn't want to play that game so the house may well be back on the market soon.
My insomnia is back with a vengeance so I need to try some relaxation methods, apart from half a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc each evening. (Yes, I know that probably makes it worse but hey ho).
The good news is that P had his first vaccination yesterday. All done in 5 minutes and no side effects so far. I am in Group 6 so still have to wait for mine. The rest of our group of friends have now all had their invitations. Of the two who are younger than me, one is in the vulnerable category due to cancer treatment and the other had hers early due to a mix up by the GP surgery. I shall just have to be patient and wait my turn.
Although I may be feeling a little unsettled right now I know that this will all be over eventually. We still have good health, a warm comfortable home and plenty of food so we are luckier than a lot of people elsewhere.
The barometer is pointing to change, so that's a good sign.
