I saw the switch on of the Dublin Christmas lights via Facebook Live. I have to say it was hard watching and almost brought a tear to my eye. With restrictions and Covid case numbers stuck, I’m not sure restrictions will be lifted long enough to allow me to travel into town to see them.
The weather this weekend has been awful and with everything in Ireland closed due to lockdown, I hit a whole new low today when my biggest outing was to the petrol station and parcel motel.
Another project turned up in the post today. Perhaps one day, I might actually start one of these projects 🙂
Despite the rain and the lockdown its been a really nice birthday full of cake, chocolate, presents, Netflix binge watching and take away food. Mind you I hope to have a more normal birthday next year.
Tonight the Irish government announced that we would be returning back to lockdown for a period of 6 weeks. I tried to take my mind off waiting for the announcement by watching TV but failed. I can’t help feeling really negative about the whole situation.
