Scared - Who Me?

Today I ventured out (thanks to my neighbour who gave me a lift), for the first time since 18th March,

To say I was scared stiff is the understatement to beat all understatements, I was terrified!

The mask I was wearing was slowly roasting me and my hands were sweating in the gloves but that was nothing to  my heart rate which was super fast.

Once in the supermarket I was just so intent on the actual shopping that I forgot to be nervous and luckily as it was 4.30pm there were very few people in there, which made it much easier.

It was becoming apparent that if I didn't make the effort to go out I was soon going to be unable to do so, and I'm so glad I did.

If anyone had told me what a terrifying prospect going food shopping would be  back in February I 'd have laughed at the idea.

The huge  change of mind this pandemic has brought about in so many people is astonishing.

One small step for woman.......


  1. Congratulations! I'm also finding that things I did without thinking have now become impossible, or against the regulations, or just too risky at present.

  2. Thanks Nancy. I am making my 2nd foray into the world of food shopping this afternoon, this time with a different naighbour. We are all going to have challenges every day I fear, and with no guarantee that all will eventually return to "normal".
    Good luck with you challenges,

  3. You are not the only one, I have not been out since March 10th, have no inclination to do so.

  4. I know just how you feel but felt the need to try.
    If there were no kind neighbours to drive me it would be a very different story.
    Nowhere near ready to tackle buses or taxis yet.
