You're not alone! I promise you. There are lots of people Vic-wide feeling hopeless, sad, angry, all sorts of things right now. I'm one of them. I have grown to dislike the city that I once loved and was proud of. In reality, I'll likely stay and not go interstate or to regional, as my family is here, but gosh I am not proud or in admiration of it the last year. I feel like poo - nothing pretty about it - as I've described in my post earlier today.
My colleague in Sydney called me to see how I was at the start of the second lockdown, and he said Melbourne is the most liveable city - even for the virus. That was a lovely and funny observation for an otherwise crappy situation.
I'm going to tell myself from this minute that it will be a short 'circuit breaker' as they say and won't be months on end - want to do that with me? We can do it - woo!
This totally silly animal joke gave me a smile just now - "This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog–we laughed a lot."
Hard to make me smile this weekend - so I'm impressed!
Your life matters to me. Let me know how you are?
