Check In……

How are you?

Yes, this is new and not book-ish but with what is going on in the world, I wanted to reach out and see how we are all doing, make sure you are ok.

I know I’ve been feeling anxious, worried and so tired. Trying to juggle working from home and home schooling my son along with all the uncertainty has affected my reading and blogging. Then I feel guilty and sort of unsettled as I haven’t been doing these!!!

I’m sure I’m not alone.

Tell me how you are, tell me something good that’s happened or just have a vent.

    1. I totally get that. I’ve read listened to 1 audio book so far whilst I’ve been working but I just cant seem to pick up a book and read. This whole situation is just surreal.


  1. My husband and I are both working from home and its ok so far. However, my anxiety is amping up and I have to just not watch the news because it’s so depressing. I just tell myself things will get better soon. You know, I thought I was the only one having trouble reading! I can’t concentrate enough to get involved in a plot. I never have that problem. Weird!.

    1. I’m exactly in that position, I just cant concentrate or I feel too tired to read!

      It will get better, we just need to weather this storm, get through it and we will be good. πŸ’œ

  2. Trying to work from home, homeschooling the boys, worrying every time my husband has to run to the store, and trying to keep up with my own online class. Its been tiring. My heart has not been in so much reading because I am so tired.

    Positive thought: Human nature has been uplifted. There is more good going on. Neighbors helping (safely), making sure everyone has what they need, and spreading the word when we know a store has some essentials that are very hard to get. Companies coming together to get our health care their masks, sanitizers, and cleaning supplies. Its a good feeling.

    1. Looking at the positives are getting me through this. We had a Clap for Carers on Thursday and I thought we would be on our doorstep alone but all the street came out along with loads of others. It was really heart lifting. I just cant wait for this all to be over. Hang in there ❀


  3. Hi Caro, yes the Thursday evening clap was amazing – it brought a lump to my throat. πŸ™‚
    I’m actually signed off work for a month at the moment 😦 but I don’t think all the stress and anxiety of the world-wide spread of Covid-19 is helping my migraines improve. I’ve stopped watching as much news and I’m listening to more audiobooks to try to stop my overactive brain. πŸ˜‰
    Stay safe & healthy. x

    1. I’ve had to stop looking at the news too but my friend said something to me yesterday that has stuck with me, she said it’s ok to not be ok….and I thought omg she is right!!!

      We just went out for the clap again, so nice to see the street all out coming together.

      I hope you are feeling better ❀❀

      1. Thanks Caro, πŸ’œ Yeah, it sort of helps knowing that I’m not the only one having trouble trying to sleep at night too. Insomnia seems to be a common problem with most of my friends at the moment.

        Take care πŸ’œ

      2. I’m not feeling the greatest which doesnt help either. I have a vitamin d deficiency and was due a blood test as was feeling funky again but it was obviously cancelled….and low vit d makes you feel rubbish!!!!
