The Blue Day

Posted April 1, 2020 from United Kingdom

The spring sun is shining through my window as if nothing has happened. I can hear the robins and goldfinches singing in the backyard.

My husband isn't home yet. Just like all other healthcare workers, he too doesn't have the privilege to work from home.

Uk announced lockdown last night.

My sister with her little daughter staying with us these days. Her University is closed and functioning online.

It's very difficult to stay indoors when spring unfolds with its yellowish daffodil dreams.

It's going to be challenging days ahead. But I am trying to cling into every tiny bit of hope.

Hello Again Shameela,

So, there's finally a full lockdown there now? I was wondering how long they would hold out. My hubby's British. What does your hubby do? I hope he's stays safe and well, as does the rest of your family.

Thanks for sharing your update.
