What a Difference One Week Makes

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!

      1. No, I do not mind at all telling how long we have been married.
        We are going to be celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary.
        We were married on a beautiful spring day on April 12th in the city of Boston.
        It’s not always been easy but it’s been very, very good!
        I found a gem when I found my best friend(most of the time, anyway!) that I married! 🙂

      2. That is very romantic Margie and thank you for sharing. 37 yrs is very committed. And friendship that spans the years is truly beautiful. I guess a holiday in 🙂Boston is a perfect memory you share.

  1. Andi, here in Colorado, our Governor has taken the same measures as you now have.
    I know it is difficult but we must do all we can to stop the spread this very dangerous virus.
    I wish your sweet girls a happy birthday!
    My daughter was having a small party to celebrate my wedding anniversary next month but she cancelled it as it was the right thing to do.
    I have never seen anything like what is taken place in the world in my lifetime.

    Be well Andi and be safe!

    1. I am sad to hear that your anniversary party is cancelled. Can your daughter reschedule? Though it’s not quite the same thing, I know! It is John and my 25th in July. Mind you that is from going out together not tying the knot!!!

      I know – this is all very strange…
