Hope your niggles decrease quickly. Easter Bunny didn't find me but a delightful message from my little A certainly cheered me up - and is healthier than chocolate in the quantities I like. Bought the traditional Darrell Lea boxes for the family - can't wait for little A to be old enough to have her own. (maybe she won't like it and I can have it instead?) but delivery may be closer to mid-winter's day.
It must be tough not being able to catch up with your family, especially little A. I'm not in that position, so am not missing anything.
However, I have been eating chocolate in large quantities for several days as a training exercise for Easter. I was pleased to hear the Victorian Chief Health Officer recently confirm it was a food (for legitimate travel purposes).
Confirmed it as ESSENTIAL food for Easter actually. I promptly made an emergency trip to the supermarket.
PrueD - my "fears" were not that I would be forgotten, but that she would think that I don't care enough to visit, as I've been a very regular visitor this year due to Sydney events. She's recently realised and expressed the feelings of "I miss you". But I have been assured she "understands" the situation and knows Nanna will be back. Poor little ones - confined to indoors over fire period and now confined to indoors for coVid - the world's an antisocial place - especially for someone who had just discovered FRIENDS and Preschool!
Yes, l feel very sorry for children now, especially little ones who do not understand what is happening and why they cannot see their loved ones. Our generation has been very lucky over time, and have had good lives in terms of world peace etc. Regarding me 'missing out', l meant that l was not missing out on a family Easter gathering, including sharing with little people, as my family has none. But it would be very hard if you did, such as im your situation.
Carolyn, I feel your pain :(
I can deal with missing the Easter orienteering, but not spending time with my sister's family is hard. I console myself with the thought that E and H probably hadn't known that they were going to see me in Orange...
Certainly G & I now have a good relationship with our teenaged niece & nephew in Sydney even though we didn't see much of them when they were very small - but we were intending to visit them last week, and clearly that didn't happen either; most worrying is that even his sister can't visit their parents who are both in the nursing home.
(sorry, Prue, for using your log to whinge on)
