Hello from a grey and humid Sydney Sunday. You’d be forgiven for thinking we’ve gone back in time as we experience the same kind of existential dread and fears we did in June 2021. Back then, I was fully vaccinated; now I’m boosted as well. But that doesn’t quell the fears of seeing cases rapidly rise, knowing you might catch it at some point. And yet, can we stop living our lives? I am taking precautions in that, I’m being sensible about where I go and wearing a mask in any indoor venues but it’s hard and I have found that inadvertently, I’m in a self-imposed lockdown within my 5 km radius as are a few friends in theirs. Anyway, the point of this isn’t to complain – though our government has once again shown us how incompetent they are when it comes to ordering necessary items to manage living with covid – to look back at all I am grateful for from 2nd January to 8th January 2022:
Enjoying the sunny beach weather on Sunday and Monday before going back to work on Tuesday
Quiet work week to ease into the year
Finally watching test cricket at the SCG and seeing the first ball bowled. It ended up being a day of rain delays and we didn’t stay the entire day but it was nice to finally experience it despite the Covid concerns
Doing my first rapid antigen test and testing negative; turns out I’m a lot more anxious than I realised about catching Covid despite being fully vaccinated and boosted
First PT session for the year on Thursday
Friday coffee and croissant with my friend SH
Taking myself to the beach after work on Friday despite how windy and grey it was to beat the existential dread and anger
A couple of hours early on Saturday morning at the beach for a lovely swim; I also think I’m officially a local and will write a post on that shortly
FaceTiming to my sister on Saturday
Cat and dog cuddles when I’ve needed them the most
It’s not been the most fabulous week and I’ve stuck to my 5 km radius but here’s hoping things will get better eventually.
How has your week been?
