Cat alone

It’s a challenge being isolated at home. Nothing like this has ever happened to me. I’ve always joked that if I was in prison I would like to be in solitary confinement but now I am starting to see what a harsh punishment that is.

I like being left alone with my thoughts, but I am finding it very difficult to do the things I feel I should. I have a to-do list but I can’t quite make myself start it in any organised way but I know that if I got to the end of this social distancing and I hadn’t crossed everything off I will have very little self-respect left.

What I have started doing is Adrien’s 30 day yoga challenge. She’s delightful and although the first one is called Ease into it, it’s going to be a challenge.

What are you doing in your social distancing? I know some people have isolated themselves with specific friends, some completely alone at home.

It’s a time to keep in touch with everyone we know who might be lonely, frightened and vulnerable.

Keep well.

  1. I’m doing yoga with Adrienne too – she’s so helpful! Glad you’ve got internet as that helps so much with being alone x

    I’m still going to the allotment but I’m keeping my distance from everyone else. My partner is using an app to catalogue all our books. She is also making protective masks. Actually that is still on the ‘to do’ list but it will happen soon. The books need vacuuming as well as cataloguing you see! I have also cleaned out the understairs cupboard. Well, I cleaned it out a bit. Onward and upward!

      Cataloguing books sounds really fantastic. The number of times I look for a book and i KNOW where it is and it isn’t there is ridiculous. And that is why I have two copies of various books and THREE of two. I wish someone would vacuum our books.
