What have you been up to lately?
Alas, I have not learned a new language or mastered the art of pastry-making during self-isolation. I didn't even go for a walk outside of my yard for two months and have seemingly forgotten how to dress for life beyond the front door.
Despite my best intentions and early attempts to be positive and stay constructive, my mental health (like that of so many others) has suffered a steady decline during these uncertain times, and it's been hard to feel motivated to do much more than the bare minimum.
Thankfully cases of covid-19 are down to 0 in South Australia now, and as restrictions ease I'm feeling some hope that things might actually be getting better in our part of the world.
As much as the global situation terrifies me, a little room to move here is a welcome relief and I'm abundantly grateful for any good news.
Though the threat of a second wave for Australia looms as the likely consequence for widespread reckless behaviour, I have my fingers and toes crossed that the population can show the same level of responsibility that has helped to flatten the Nation's curve thus far.
I guess time will tell, but in the meantime, wherever you are, please stay safe and well.
