We can’t predict

I’m feeling a little sad today and not sure how long this feeling is going to be for.

A lot of things lately are very unpredicted and we take each day as it comes. Today in south east U.K. we started day 1 of a Tier 4 lockdown.

There will be no Christmas in each other’s homes and for me this hurts incredibly.

I’ve spent the past nearly 9 months following the guidelines and to the point I denied myself a lot even when the rules were somewhat lifted. Believing if we all did our bit then life can slowly return to near normal. The belief that Christmas Day I had so much to look forward to. Seeing my children and my grandson.

This is not going to happen. We cannot mix for the foreseeable next few weeks and I’m terribly sad inside about it.

Some have “support bubbles”. I do not.

Because I live in a house share situation. If one person is mixing outside the other cannot create their own support bubble.

I never had a choice in this because the person who rents the spare room met a boyfriend, does physical activities which include mixing and apparently their “mental health” needs to do this.

Well today my sympathies are completely gone. They’re gone for every single person who chose to ignore guidelines and live their best lives during a pandemic. They’re gone because of the selfish actions of others. Including my housemate.

My decision is postpone “Christmas” for when we can. We can still have it another time.

I’ll make the best of a few days break over the holidays and catch up with sleep, films and maybe spending time on myself a bit.

I’m inside the saddest I have ever felt. Doing the right thing didn’t work because if others don’t, then your actions are wasted.

Christmas is important to many people. Not for the religious observance etc.

It’s important as it’s a time families get to come together and just spend time when for many months they cannot. This year seems more so important.

Anyhow it is what is is, the best we can do is find a way to make the best of what we have at our fingertips.

My story in Second Life will be even more so poignant this year. I plan on the Christmas get together in 22nd December. But it may be this year I’ll be with others in our virtual world, spending time on Christmas Day.

    1. Sigh yes people are very selfish in their behaviours. I’ve been very careful and stayed home all year because I’m diabetic and it didn’t matter. While those sensible did the right things there have been people carrying on like it didn’t matter. I’m so sad right now. Xmas will be alone and seeing no one. Yet all these months I did the right thing so I could.
      Still I shall enjoy peace I guess and think of better things


  1. I know I know! It makes me angry too! It’s a shame more people don’t follow the guidelines! Because of my weak immune system and the fact that I try to do as much as I can for my elderly neighbors I’m super super super cautious, but sadly I see my generation not taking things serious not to mention when I see older folks walking around, meeting up with their friends and shopping all about without masks it infuriates me! Yes! I’m that person that tells them to please take care and wear their masks (in a nice way). I always have some disposable packaged masks in my bag and I’ll offer them to people. Needless to say sometimes I get weird looks or sometimes a word of appreciation. At least I tried, right? I don’t care if they think I’m a nut! LOL Isa my dear friend please take of you, you’re a valuable treasure in SL & RL and knowing you I know you’ll create a diversion and find a way to to bring joy to everyone on Christmas as you do all the year though. Things will be uncomfortably quiet here too. Let’s all say a pray in our own way that this coming year we’ll see the end of this pandemic. Hugzz & Happy Holidays!
