Just another chit-chat post

So it was my usual morning work, then straight back home.

I went to shop for a few things, just before lunch. While there, I thought I see if there were toilet rolls. Nope.

I was happy to see from my window this morning, when looking out, that I could see a squirrel in the garden. So after over a year of no squirrel running about in there, after the previous one was found dead on the pavement just off the property, I wonder now if this squirrel will start to become a regular visitor. I hope so. I do love watching them.

I have been watching Indiana Jones today, on dvd. I have watched the first two and plan to watch the third one tomorrow, when back from morning job.

For the past hour, I have started feeling tearful. My mind prior to just that and during, is playing over some things. I feel fear. But not panic. I am still more as in carry on as you mean to go on mode, but within the limits we have to be in during this time, like observing social distances, which I was observing today as I was speaking to my two neighbours on the stairwell.

Then this afternoon my doorbell went. I wasn’t expecting visitors. It was my neighbour from downstairs, him and his wife bought me a two-pack toilet rolls. They wouldn’t accept money for them. But I am doing them a favour they asked, if I didn’t mind and that’s post an envelope for them. This is certainly not a problem and I am happy to help. So I shall post that on the way to work soon.

I hope you are all keeping well and doing ok in these tough times.

    1. Yes. It did to me, when they asked, otherwise I would have felt so bad about them not accepting money.

    1. We are not all on complete lockdown. But vulnerable people are supposed to stay at home, as I have blogged and mentioned my reason I am vulnerable, which is asthma, I still want to work, as explained why in an earlier post.
      But the way people have gone in large open spaces like parks and not observing social distance, which has now resulted in parks closing, there are talks about lockdown. Time will tell in 24 hours, if it happens, or a little later.

      1. Thank you. I understand the risks for me, but I need to work as explained in an earlier post. I can opt out at anytime while we are in this situation. x

  1. I think it’s normal to feel fear and anxiety at the moment, as may be feeling tearful or emotional. You’re a very lovely, sensitive lady with bundles of compassion and I believe you also take on everyone else’s emotions too. You look out for yourself and stay safe.
    That was a lovely exchange with your neighbours.

    1. I do pick up other people’s emotions and atmosphere in the room.
      About 2 years ago, I had a reader who thought I was a HSP (Highly Sensituve Person.) I went and researched and I think this person shared a link too and I discovered I was.
      I bought a book to read on the topic. Again, this book was recommended to me and from reading it, I learnt a lot more about me. It brought back some memories I forgotten from childhoodand it certainly explains things I couldn’t fathom, but now explains things.
      I have not continued reading all last year, with what went on, so I need to get my head back in from where I left off.

      1. I remember it, as I still have it. I’m just over half way with it, until I had to stop due to what went on all last year, that I have blogged about regarding my mum and then how it affected me.

        The book is called, “The Highly Sensitive Person,” by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.

        At the time, when I started reading this, book about 2 years ago, I was upset a little bit at times with some childhood memories that came back to me, but I just went an easy pace with the book as it suggests. I haven’t rushed it. It did not affect me greatly. I understood more about me.
        When I was a child, I used to think I was a freak at times, or abnormal. But the book has made me understand and feel better about myself.

        I have had plans to write posts as I worked through it, but got distracted. I may still do this. But shall see, as I would need to go back on what I have written, while working through the book. 🙂

      2. Thank you so much Liz. Just bought on Kindle 🙂 and I’m looking forward to reading. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings.
        Crikey, I was the freak – and I hated it. Moved around a lot and I was always the new kid with the odd accent!
        I’ll let you know how I get on. Caz x

      3. I found the learning more about me, outweighed my upsets I had at times. Go with the flow and take your time with it as the book suggests and have a notebook at your side in case you want to write anything.

  2. Sounds like a good time, I have school work at home and mum keeps giving me chores

      1. Is it the equivalent though what you would have been doing at school during the time they are closed?
