Since I last wrote a piece on the Coronavirus some developments have happened some good and a bad development.
Just before lockdown my uncle was in palliative care in a nursing home in the Manchester area. It appears he had a stroke then pneumonia. As we were allowed to visit. My mum was unable to see her brother due to looking after my father who has severe Parkinsons disease. So I was despatched in her place as I been over before to see him there. I met my aunt in Manchester Piccadilly station ,she had travelled in from Leeds ,where the rest of mums family live. We went together and got to see him as lockdown was a week later. 2 weeks after we saw him he passed away he was 76. He had lived in the nursing home for a number of years and the staff loved him. So because of lockdown none of the family could attend the funeral as we would have gone across county which wasn’t allowed. The funeral home helped mum organise the funeral. And lots of the care home staff attended the funeral and had a wake for him at the home. We were grateful as we couldn’t attend. We intend to see the care workers when restrictions are lifted. I will miss my uncle he was a character, he was ex army and used to box for the regiment he was in.
As for the shopping after speaking to the Gp in a phone call I was able to get online shopping from Iceland. And the pharmacy are delivering my prescription.
I bought myself a mask online and I look like Darth Vader or a bank robber, Ha ha .But if I go on public transport I will need a mask and the right amount of money.
Well as I live in a flat I have had walks around the local green areas. And talking to neighbours at a distance to keep my sanity.
How are you folks all doing?
Bye for now 💋oxo
