Today was a day in town. A necessity and on my own.
It was raining on and off, with a blustery wind. Not nice.
I had some time to fill so I trawled up and down the street.
There was little evidence of people even though a few shops were open. Many were not.
I admire those that made the effort. Times are hard and they need all the support they can get.
Closure is just very sad. I hate it.
I went to see if the knitwear shop needed more Sheeple but they were only open at the time I was going home.
So I peered through the glass on the door to see what I could see……. (I think they are ok for Sheeple).
It was a singularly miserable dreich day. Not even the seagulls were blagging chips. Why? Because all the chip shops were closed. Now, that is terrible.
Me? I was dressed for the weather and situation. I saw no one I knew (apart from a friend in Tesco) and kept to myself. It is so sad – Lerwick was always a sociable place.
After filling time, I went to have my Covid injection (my 1st). It was all superbly organised and, although I was anxious, they all did their utter best to make me feel ok about it.
And thank you NHS Shetland for being so wonderful.
So that was me today. In a way it was nice to have some time away from home but I struggled being away from home. I can’t win!
