Snap Lockdown To Upset Plans 😖
Rambling On… 19 February 2021.
Unfortunately, my man and I won’t be going away tomorrow.
On Friday last week as of midnight, the whole state of Victoria was put into a 5-day hard lockdown since the UK strain of Covid-19 has reached our shores. This meant that hardly anyone was allowed to work, including my man which put him three days behind.
According to the government, the short lockdown worked, and the spread was stopped. That was also due to the hard-working medical staff and other people who did contact tracing to stop the spread.
Plans made by many went out the window on this Valentine’s Day Weekend. I heard of weddings, birthdays, and other social and family gatherings being put into disarray. Let alone all those booked Valentine’s Day romantic dinners.
The ban was lifted on Wednesday at midnight and my hubby was allowed to go back to work. We’ve had to push our vacation dates out and won’t be going on our holiday until hopefully Wednesday or Thursday next week. Unless of course we’re all put back into lockdown again.
I’d rather do short stints of lockdown than long stints like the first round was for months on end.
But shit happens.
I plan to catch up on some housework, do some grocery shopping to stock up for the kids while we’re gone, and for stuff for ourselves to take away with us.
Keep your fingers crossed for us.
I know you are all still dealing with the separation from your loved ones and limited contact with friends and family because of the virus, and I feel for you all. I know the vaccine is being rolled out too and I hope that the inoculation is as good as they say and helps to protect people who do get the virus from being so sick or dying.
I’m sorry I didn’t get a newsletter out to you all last weekend but there just wasn’t time. Hubby’s been working really long hours since it’s summer here and it’s lighter for longer and to be honest, we had a few things happening at home and my kids needed me. By the time I remembered I hadn’t done the newsletter, it was lunchtime on Saturday.
Everything’s okay, but I’m not going to go into anything. Some things should remain private.
I hope you all have a great weekend and a fantastic week.
Love Becca Van xxoo.
What Have I Been Writing?
I’ve worked really hard to get this month’s story finished by today, Friday, since hubby and I were going to go on a vacation as of tomorrow and I managed to do it.
I’ve just completed writing Slick Rock 32 Wild and Free and am about to submit it to Siren BookStrand for possible publication.
What Have I Been Reading?
To be honest I haven’t read much. I’ve been flitting from one book to another, not being able to concentrate on any one story but let me reiterate, that in no way is this because the stories aren’t good.
My stress levels have just been a bit too high to sink my teeth into anything.
I will leave it there for now.
Enjoy your week ahead, until next week.
