Thinking about social distancing

These days about the only thing most countries can agree on is the need for social distancing, so it’s been on my mind a lot. I now watch tv, and think they’re not social distancing, even if it was something made last year My latest thing though has been watching the birds on my feeder. I think it’s getting worse, the woodpeckers used to be very good at it, they wouldn’t even let another bird near the feeder with them, the sparrows however have always been rubbish at it. Today though I’ve noticed them all mixing together more as they peck the nuts which have fallen to the ground The photo is the sparrows. So what have you been thinking about today.

perhaps the sparrows gossips or discuss over human conditions right now

The post is pretty slow at the minute, my dad’s birthday card hasn’t arrived in time and I sent that a few days ago.

@Dragonairy1 some royal mail branches have decided to only deliver parcels on Saturdays - no regard for the customers there

Right now, the fact that I am tired. I didn't sleep very well last night. I hate nights like that.

I have been thinking about the fact that I am so sick and tired of all that bad stuff out there. Is there ever going to be some "sunny days" again.

I didn't think about social distancing as we haven't been anywhere. Some observe it but others don't bother.

For me it's pretty much just when I go to the supermarket, but I do try to keep away from people.

I try to social distance at all times, but avoid going out. However, yesterday I was so excited to see our lovely neighbour after ages and totally forgot to put my mask on - we were there chatting up a storm, not really social distancing. I didn't even remember until hours later!
