Corona-virus-19 has attacked us and and put everything upside down. I am not amused. Need to stay in isolation for two weeks now as I had some cough this morning. It may be because I choked on some food yesterday while enjoying togetherness over a Chinese take-way from the excellent nearby North China Restaurant in Uxbridge Road.
It was Mothering Sunday but despite the cloudless blue sky, people cannot go out and need to observe social distancing to avoid spreading the nasty virus.
The three of us in the flat have been extra cautious and self-isolating for a week because each of us qualifies as a vulnerable person due to underlying health conditions and/or age. Shopping is a problem now. We need to ask people to do it for us as the online deliveries are fully booked. Luckily, there are good people. They formed mutual support groups and we communicate via social media. It works great for us. A neighbour did some serious shopping for us last week. Not only that. We were treated to some homemade curry and her birthday cake! A few other people have been helping us as well.
It's especially hard on sunny days when it would be great to be out and about on my bicycle.
