DAY NINE QUARANTINE - AUCKLAND

 I'm not blogging today.

Go away and read something worthwhile.


I NEVER comment on other countries politics, but just this once...


And if my views on DT upset any of my readers... well bye bye.  We are all entitled to our opinion.


3.19 pm:  My mood has not improved.

But I know I really should come on here and do an update.

This morning I walked around my room ... getting some exercise.  I didn't feel like being around anyone.

Then at 1.50 pm I went out to the Level 4 deck and sat in the sun.  And another younger woman and I chatted.

She's over here from a European country to visit her terminally ill mother.

So we chatted. That was nice.  To actually TALK to someone, in person, for the first time in over a week.  Felt good.

We had a lot in common.  The 40 minutes passed too quickly.

Now I'm back in my room and yeah, moping.

There is NOTHING  to feel good about right now in my miserable life.  

*** NOT RIGHT NOW THIS MINUTE anyway ***

I know that this shall pass, and I will be just fine come Friday night.

I just have to endure till then.

ABOVE: And that's what I'm missing out on at home.



5.59 pm:  I've just returned from a really good walk on the Level 4 Deck.  I walked the entire 40 minutes were are allocated.  I'm freakin' tired now!

And dinner just arrived.  So off to collect it from outside me door and probably throw it in the bin.  
Just standard procedure now.

SHOCK!  Dinner was lovely.

And on that note, I'm off to have a nice long soak in the bath, with a bath bomb.

    Chris - here is something worthwhile: Biden elected as 46th President. Trump lost. May America forever stand strong.

    Sending wishes to you for things to be better. I know all of this quarantine is trying, stupid covid!...and it is difficult to be away from your family...plus that food situation...I would have cried 3 meals a day, just about, if any of that had been delivered to me. I don't eat hot spicy food and I bet most don't...have they never heard of "sauces" on the side? ;-)

    Anyhoo - I'm thinking of you and wishing you well. XO, Ky Girl

    But Chris your blog is worthwhile. It’s the first thing I read every morning. Your life has been very stressful over the last couple of months and I can understand you feeling down

    That is so funny - whatever one's politics you would have to have a chuckle at that one. Glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humour. Audrey

  8. I live here ! And I am horrified that ANYONE voted for this corrupt man. I get it the first time. They didn't know. But they know now! And they still voted for him.... Ugh.
    If you really do take the day off blogging - I shall miss you!

  15. It was a very long week, waiting to find out that Biden won. Certainly not as long as your quarantine, but a long week.

    Thank god that idiot Trump has gone!
    It sure makes you appreciate having family as much as they piss us off!
    I was in quarantine when I traveled to and from America so I totally understand.
    I almost ended up with mental health problems. It was hideous!
