Windows.

I’ve drawn the bottom window, Millie got the top window.

We might be stuck at home in lockdown but we can brighten the world up a little.

Had a text to tell me to isolate Gruff today as one of his class mates has Covid. I hope they’re ok, this is going to happen, this is a virus. Truth is we’re all locked down till the 9th of November so there won’t be much change for him.
Halloween is coming up but we won’t be trick or treating nor answering the door this year.

A very strange year and just getting stranger. Halloween all year round right now.

Outside drawing.

Had a bit of fun yesterday as the Welsh lockdown continues. Outside pavement drawing has re commenced! Nice thing about Swansea rain is that my canvas gets wiped clean for me to do a new one in between the downpours!

I think Renee approves.
Lucky for me, Mr fox is leaving my ladies alone right now.

Good morning.

Wake up, pee, eat, destroy bed, eat the remote control, sleep.

I want to be a puppy!

Lockdown part two.

We’re hours away from the next 17 day lockdown for Wales. It will be a full lock down, we are to stay at home and only venture out for food, exercise and medical emergencies.

And I went to do a food shop.

The shop was too busy, full of people. A lot more than normal.

I stood at the entrance and had to wait to go in as there were too many inside.

I turned around and walked back to my car.

Someone make me a cup of tea, I don’t want to make my own tea any more.

That’s all I want.

Thirteen.

Thirteen years old today.

Thirteen birthday licks.

Thirteen wiggles.

Thirteen kisses.

Umpteen love.

School.

We go to school very differently than we used to.

That’s ok though because it’s easy enough to do, put sandwiches in a bag so we can put the rubbish in the bin straight after eating.

All the parents at primary school queue up outside now and they wear their masks. There’s a lot of cheery ones too. We have Halloween themed ones with skulls and crossbones. There’s even a teddy wearing one, clever ted.

The older ones in high school have their windows open to increase ventilation. They mix in their class “bubbles” and not with anyone else. There are tents in the playground for them to stay in their groups at breaktime. Food is eaten, hands are washed, a lot. Coughs are common but the jokes fly round that you’ve got Covid now. Everyone talks of a year they’ve heard of in another school that got sent home for two weeks because of a positive test.

Home is moan-time, after, you’ve washed your hands, again.

I got told of a smokers shelter today, the people two metres apart, smoking, masks under their chins, grey sky, coffee in hand, steam rising slowly.
