Hopefully this will be the last week that Sydneysiders will be in lockdown. We have not been able to live a normal life or even what resembles normality regarding access to shops, hairdressers, visiting family and friends, eating in restaurants and other everyday activities that we took for granted in the past since the 26th June - more than 100 days.
Now that the target has been reached of 70% of the NSW population being double vaccinated things are going to start opening up on Monday 11th October with some restrictions still in place ie limits to the number of people inside venues, mask wearing and checking in with QR codes. A small price to pay to be able to start living again.
During the week I started a new book
Made a batch of pikelets
Went for my first swim of the season. I did fully submerge after taking the selfie.
Put the binding on one of the baby capsule covers.
Miss M celebrated her 8th birthday today. Sadly no party this year but we did a "screen party".
I have been busy making a list of all the things that are needed and wanted to buy when the shops re-open.
It is written on both sides of the paper and hubs has been warned that I will be missing for a few days while catching up on lost retail therapy time. I know that you can shop on line and do so for my groceries but for all other items my eyes enjoy the pleasure of the experience.
Time to head off and unload the washing machine that is beeping in the background.
Back soon and in the meantime
My hairdresser has just phoned and I have an appointment to see her on Monday. I am over the moon.
