The Boy has been pinged a second time about probable contact with someone with Covid. In this particular case, we know that three of his class mates have tested positive. 😦
One in 10 Londoners had Covid at the beginning of 2022. Our London borough currently has approximately 1,815 cases per 100,000. As of last week, only 47.8% of people living in our borough had received a double dose plus a booster.
It’s time to think seriously about the thought of 5 days of isolation at home and how to manage it … what follows next is lighthearted, in no particular order, dependent on how poorly I might feel and whether The Brainy One and The Boy were also positive.
(Separate arrangements would have to be made for Tilly.)
- Order a new book or three. Reading is a great escape and a good way to distract you from your thoughts
- Order your favourite foods and treat yourself to a takeaway
- Open the windows and let the fresh air in, particularly if you are isolating in one room
- Have a shower and clean your teeth every day. Keeping to a routine is important.
- Find a TV series to binge watch
- Organise a FaceTime/Zoom/Skype call for every day
- Cry if you want to
- If you feel well enough, move your body. I recommend Pilates at Your Desk on Instagram
- Spend time on your hobby, guilt free
Have you had to isolate? How did you manage the 10 days? Did you isolate alone or with your family?
