I treated myself to flowers on Wednesday, so I had something colourful to look at. Especially at the weekend. The roses are a lovely colour, don’t you think? 🙂
Friday, I went and collected a book I reserved from my local library. The book is called, “Elevator Pitch,” by Linwood Barclay. It sounds a very good book, but I may be setting myself in for disappointment when I get to the end, from what I have been told.
The library has already closed by the time this post airs, until further notice, because of the Coronavirus. So the book will be in my possession until they are open again.
I can continue my work in my evening job. I have filled in a risk assessment form with my boss and signed, which acknowledges my asthma, my job, and my risk, but where I am happy to work still.
No adaptions can be made in the role I do, for this virus.
They are letting me work as long as I want to. If I want to change my mind, I can and let them know at anytime. But I won’t change my mind. So I am happy knowing I can keep working.
As I say nothing can be changed in my job I do, than what I do already and what I use. But there are a lot less staff in the building than before, due to them having to work from home. A majority of the time, I work on my own, with exception when I am with others because of another area we have to cover due to less cleaning staff and at the start and end of shift. I feel more at risk in a supermarket, than at my workplace.
Masks were suggested by a reader in another post. Masks have not been offered at me to work and I won’t ask. It has been said by professionals, that surgical masks are really of no use, unless you are using those type of masks hospital staff would be wearing. (I can’t remember the names of those.) But the surgical masks, are to be used by those with the infection.
I will not wear a surgical mask in my job, because I would put myself at further risk, because of constantly messing with it, putting myself at risk, due to touching my face while adjusting it, as the professionals have mentioned. But also, as I am deaf, so I am aware how hindering a mask is to those that need to lipread, or just don’t hear me. So if I need to talk to a member of staff, they may need to see all my face to hear me. So I would be touching my face mask.
The only time I would ever wear one, if I am ever in a situation where I am deep cleaning the place, meaning I am head to toe in gear accordingly, incuding those safer type masks I would request. But as this is a more serious type of virus for the vulnerable, I think that’s where I would draw a line and would say no to me participating, should this arise.
My morning job, the boss of that one is waiting to hear from another department for this. But it will probably be a risk assessment form also. I am a lone worker there and only people I see are in passing, a little later in my shift, of some of the businesses that operate in these units I clean.

Yesterday, I chose to stay at home, rather than volunteer at litter picking, as I mentioned I would in, My feelings – part 7 on Thursday night.
I did a couple of household chores, before watching dvd’s and I have started working on my second pom pom bunny. I promise I will share those bunnies in their own post later. When I do, look out for a post called, “Hello bunnies.”

Why I did not ever bother watching these films sooner, because I enjoyed watching them better than I expected.
I collected dvd’s from my neighbour in the afternoon and passed on ones I watched from before. I have a couple of films and the rest music dvd’s in this lots to watch.
I played a couple of the music dvd’s that afternoon to early evening.
Today, I watched one of my own dvd’s this morning, which was Graham Norton. Later, after lunch I plan to watch some more of the music dvd’s and then start on that book.
What’s your weekend like? Do share, because our weekends are probably so different right now to what we normally do and it gives ideas for other readers on what they could do.
