Now when I go to the shops I have to queue and keep my distance – It’s a new way of life!
I bring my gloves and mask to the shops because there are sometimes lots of people around. The mask irritates my breathing and sometimes makes me panicky and confused. If I forget something in the shops, I have to queue again which is a nuisance.
When I meet my friends outside, we must keep a distance between us and shout over at each other. It is very difficult to have a private conversation but there is less gossiping which is a good thing. I work in a crèche. I miss my job and all the children and staff I work with. In my room, we had 10 kids and 4 staff so I don’t know how it will work when we reopen. I am not sure if I will be able to go back.
The hairdressers are all shut but I don’t miss them, my family does my hair. I tried to cut my own fringe because it was in my eyes. I made a mess of it, thankfully my sister fixed it for me in my back garden. I had to wear a mask for her to do it, it looks great now.
