This afternoon will mark exactly one week since my family and I were forced into self isolation. Since then, the theatres, bars, cafes, clubs and restaurants have closed and yesterday all shops (excluding pharmacies and supermarkets) and all remaining public places have joined them! Everybody is to self isolate for a minimum of three weeks more. I suddenly don’t feel quite so alone.
Who knows what is just around the corner! And who would have guessed the present global predicament and the extreme social and economic measures that seem to have been taken!
Tomorrow is Amritsar and Tara’s 7th birthday. Sadly the party had to be cancelled. We had booked the party at a local falconry where the children would have been able to have these stunning birds of prey launch from their outstretched arms, but alas this experience will have to wait for safer times. Though children playing with birds of prey doesn’t actually sound that safe, does it? Hmmmh.
Yes, what a difference one week makes!
