In Hiding

I want to self-isolate. And not from the current panic overtaking the world with this bloody virus, either.

It’s been quite a weekend for me, and it’s only just gone midday on Saturday. Craziness in Coles: bare aisles; too many consumers bumping trolleys and devoid of manners. Snarky parents during two out of the four netball matches I’ve coached this weekend.

Life’s too stressful in our little home, without all the external fuckery. Just want to tag myself outta the match for a while. So, I’m going to be a shut-in. Not intending on going outdoors again for the remaining part of the weekend.

Hope all’s well in your world, bloggers!

  1. I watch with bemusement at all the panic about (possibly) having to stay home for 14 days. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve stayed home for MORE than 14 days. Being told I didn’t have to go anywhere for 14 days would be like a temporary trip to heaven! Also, a PS. Coached juniors in basketball for 16 years. Parents (on both sides were a concern). Once had a parent take a swing at me after we won a grand final — it turned out he was one of our parents (he hadn’t been to a game all season so I didn’t recognise him). He didn’t think his boy had had enough court time. Sport can sometimes bring out the best in people and sometimes, not so much.

  2. Hang in there! I lost two hours of my life for a miserable bottle of sanitizer and a packet of toilet paper. I’m off remote and necessary items and yet I felt so guilty walking out with that when others lost out!
    I got to the shops 10 mins before opening and there were already around 300 people in line. Oh! and the shoving and pushing and arguments who got there first! wow!
