Yesterday, marks one year of lockdown in the UK.
It’s been a very sad year for many. Whether they’ve lost a loved one or their livelihoods.
Sadly, we lost my partner’s mum last August. She had Alzheimer’s; (link to post here). She didn’t die of Covid but we blame it because of the restrictions meant she couldn’t see her family. She died of loneliness.
Personally, I’m grateful that I kept working and that my rest of my family and I have not had Covid.
I’m also grateful because of the vaccines that have been developed. I know they’re not what everyone wants and they can cause side effects (my partner had a few after his first vaccination) but I feel some hope that this nightmare is ending.
For now, we just keep going. I find my routines help me, this blog, my running, (definitely that!) my partner and cats. I find I’m more appreciative of what I’ve got and realise how lucky I am.
What about you? How have you coped? Feel free to tell me in the comments below.
Thank you for reading.
