It has come to the point where I can not watch the news as it seems to be full of people whining about the way that Covid had ruffled their lives.
Why can they not be thankful that they have a life to be ruffled.
This may be callous but I do not give a fig about those people returning from holiday and going, so reluctantly, into quarantine.
What I care about are the people who could be infected and the NHS staff who have to deal with the fallout.
The news this morning was all about holidaymakers returning from France. If they are not back by 4.00 am tomorrow they have to quarantine for 14 days. The sense of outrage at the short notice, plans having to be changed and the difficulty and cost of getting back within the deadline was overwhelming.
My question is why didn't it come into force immediately. If there is a "clear and present danger" it should be put under control directly.
After all if there was a real threat of invasion we would get an instant response.
This is a real threat of invasion. Just not from hostile human forces.
Or is it?
Our leader seems to be blowing in the wind and the leader of the opposition is making detrimental comments.
If he is so clever perhaps he should be given the reins and told to "put his money where his mouth is"
There is no easy solution.
It means a life change for all of us.
There is a growing wave of dissent regarding education and exam grades.
Yes, these are important.
Yes, there are students who feel that they have been hard done by and their grades should be higher.
That happens every year.
It will be resolved, just not immediately.
I have heard "It is not fair" dropping from the mouths of many.
Life is not fair.
It is a circus.
I do my utmost to protect myself from others.
I do my utmost to protect others from myself.
I am missing out on so much that it hurts.
But I am alive and well.
Michael is alive and well.
The TV is off.
I may check the news headlines online.
I may not.
I am simmering and do not need the gas turned up.
Keep safe. Living is the only priority.
