I hope that today was my first and only day of isolation. I slept well with the dog deciding not to jump on the sofa bed with me but with the 2 boys working on school things I was bored. I’d like to think that I was an excellent carer for Mrs B2W while she was holed up isolating herself, bringing brekkie, coffee, lunch, dinner and gin. We aren’t allowed out of the house apart from the garden so I spent the day throwing a ball for the dog and trying to read books for my assignment or occassionally helping with school work.
And then we got the news that someone wants to view the house on Saturday. We had a buyer before things went into lock down but haven’t heard from them since so now that people are allowed out more and buying/selling is an option again we are back in the market to sell. So we have a whole new routine upon a new routine of cleaning and staging the house, giving it an attractive place to want to live in. Which it is, I just don’t have time to fit in yet another stressor in my life right now. Of course this is provided that we get a negative test tomorrow.
It seems that everything pivots on tomorrow. We’ll start on the house in any case but it will be busy and I won’t have time to plod through my assignment. This evening, once everything settled down, I wrote a quality 200 words, not bad after a long break. It would be great to continue the momentum but maybe a days break may keep it fresh. At least a negative test will mean another able available adult to clean and freshen up the house and not just our bedroom.
It will also mean bike riding again, if I get the time. After being in the saddle for 74 days running it felt a little odd not to be out but maybe that too will keep me fresh. The mind is certainly willing on both counts.
