Monday 20 July 2020


I don't know whether it was the "excitement" of yesterday but I have felt horribly flat today. Muscles are aching, body and brain are tired, and it took me until 8pm to get out of the house for a short walk.

It feels like a return to the lethargy I had during the early part of lockdown. I now face the issue of reversing my nocturnal lifestyle in time to return to work next week. I'm anxious about that, so perhaps that is adding to the tiredness.

This has been an appalling old time for the many of us with existing mental health issues, and for the "new recruits" that have joined us during this period.

It was a pleasant little walk I had tonight in the sunset though. That's as good as the day has got.

  1. Exercise with nature is healing. Wear your mask Si you will, we all will be fine.

  2. Nice sunset Si. I suspect this enforced lockdown has affected so many of us in different ways. I shall do a post on it today too.

  3. Lovely photos, as ever. Lockdown has taken its toll. Good luck on your return to work.

  4. Thank you all, I feel a little better today!
