I decide what I want to do ,but something is always more pressing.
Din’t know why,started to tidy out a big walk in box room full of shelves and boxes,I am not in a hurry,no one will visit so what is stopping me?
Everything out in the bedroom .now I realise I can not get rid of all I ought to stop being stupidly sentimental about,can’t get to tip and will it be accepted in the bins.
I can see it cluttering up the bedroom and ending up back in the darned cupboard.
But what is stopping me ,I am making nourishing meals, cooking for the freezer etc from what I’ve got in store and yet something is more pressing .
I think it is a form of stress ,but I am not really like that ,however one child has her own business ,and all is at a standstill .
I am very worried about that,as she also has quite a cocktail of auto immune
conditions,not least Pernicious Anaemia,monthly injections it is so severe.
The same for many many more.

I will have to pretend someone is visiting ,and do  a thorough “ bottoming”
as a good Spring clean is called round here.
Many are in worse situations, I know .
For example, all tests for breast cervical and bowel cancer have been halted.
How frightening that must be.
I have been very restricted since Jan 10 th so am already fed up.
Perhaps that is part of the trouble.
Never mind eyes so much better, can go for a short walk,will get out in the garden soon.
So I have no great problems myself really.

But I must finish tasks I have started.
No  Concentration!
Hope you are all well and managing.
Viktoria.

Victoria, it helps to organise chores into categories.

Things I won’t do now.

Things I won’t do later.

Things I’ll never do.

I ought to just chuck the cards out and not look at them .
I will falter if I look at them .
I suppose it is conceit to want to read again nice things people have said about you ,

Like a picture of me ,on the front and the caption “Mrs———-, you are not old!”
Then PTO,and inside——“You are really!”
Pictures of me asking “ Is the floor alright?” When a child has fallen and they need distracting .
“Do you want an ordinary rub or a magic one?”
I haven’t looked yet, just remember them.
I have visions of my children in floods of tears reading them all after I have popped my clogs .Maybe then they will appreciate me!

Then again they might just chuck them out without looking. :'(
Hey ho, at least I have uninterrupted time to do it all.
No visitors, no rush.
I have radio, TV. RootsChat,phone and as yet walks in fresh air and essentials delivered thanks to online shopping and bank card .
A garden , and neighbours far enough away to pose no danger to one and another but close enough to be able to exchange greetings.
Loads of sewing to do,material for curtains and bedspreads etc.
So there we are .
Goodnight everyone ,kindest wishes to you all , we are in a very special time and one that will go down in history, if I don’t  watch myself I might get above myself!
Viktoria.

What a beautiful painting Xin you are very talented and it is good to see such a wonderful avatar.

We all have happy memories and it is good to bring them out every so often and dust them down especially when times are not so good.

Take care everyone.
