I don’t know what I planned to write tonight but anything massively festive as gone out of the window. For any of my followers outside of the UK, firstly, thank you for stopping by, secondly today we were told that new restrictions were being put in place because of the Pandemic and have effectively put a stop to Christmas for a lot of people. If you want to read the details here is a link to the BBC.
Here’s the thing, 2 days ago it was all ‘Christmas is going ahead’, we kept hearing about ‘saving Christmas’. I wish they hadn’t got people’s hopes up, that they hadn’t given a slither of hope just for it to be snatched away a few days before. I feel the anger and frustration of so many that there just doesn’t seem to be any idea of what to do or where we go from here.
Part of me wants to carry on with Blogmas but at the same time it’s hard to feel Christmassy and like celebrating at the moment. I know so many people who are going through a lot and this is just the final kick. I don’t know about you guys but it’s taking my all to put one foot in front of the other and just to keep going.
Does this even make sense? I don’t know I just wanted to say something. I didn’t want to post a load of positive things about how things will get better etc because aren’t we sick of them at this point? We need to be allowed to feel how we need to feel especially after tonight’s announcement.
I hope you’re all doing ok as you can be.
