When I first started up this page, I was on maternity leave from work and was studying for my degree. I had a lot of free time on my hands.
Well, as much free time as a student mum ever has.
3 years on and I have free time on my hands again.
I’m back at work of course.
But I graduated last year and now I have my BA (Hons) in Criminology.
Then we learned what Coronavirus was. I’m sure 20 years from now it will be in the history books.
I was one of the ‘lucky’ ones that had to spend 12 weeks in doors, unable to go outside at all. To start with it was an exercise in self restraint. No shops, no fresh air, not even a trip downstairs to retrieve the post.
At 10 weeks I thought I’d finally been granted freedom.
But it wasn’t quite as free as I thought.
Over the weekend I found out that I am in the group of ‘extremely vulnerable’ individuals that has to continue shielding until August 1st.
When the first 12 weeks were introduced in March, it seemed like a lifetime.
Now we are facing month 4 and it just doesn’t seem that strange anymore.
How much can change in 6 months.
