Linking to AWWW MONDAYS
Because of this beautiful little ball, which looks like a modern painting, the whole country is in a kind of prison. As all activities, cinema, theatre, expositions etc are closed, the only amusement or distractions are the food stores which remain open.
Ever since I have seen the battle to catch toilet paper on TV I didn't do any shopping and preferred to stay home. But in the afternoon I had enough of computer work and TV and called Nicole. She was bored to death too and called Myriam and at the end we all met at Nicole's just for a chat and everything what we had heard. Poor Nicole was worried about her grand daughter, stuck on an island in the Philippines from where she tried to get to Manila to wait for a plane for Brussels. Apparently she has to wait for 3 days in Manila. Myriam too has troubles with her son who is stuck in Marrakech and has to wait a week until he can get a plane back to Brussels. I am more lucky my son sits in Amsterdam in his house and works from home.
Poor Mr. G's weekly Whist games are cancelled too as the building which also contains the Tennis Club is closed. So he plays Whist with his computer and watches TV and is bored. The worst is that our cat Arthur who entertained us always is gone forever a week ago and the house seems so empty without him. We miss him so much.
Our son had the intention to come next weekend but told me he won't come, now I don't know if he is scared to bring us the Virus or if he is scared to catch the Virus here. In any case there is nothing to do, we have to go through this.
On Sunday it was the same scenario, for once since a very long time I stayed in bed until 11 ! When I had seen the dark grey sky outside, I fetched a cup of coffee, returned to bed and read Facebook stories about ..... Corona Virus. There were so many jokes about it, which made me laugh.
In the afternoon we three girls met again this time at Myriam's. I left Mr. G. with his American bloody Expert or Chicago Police at home and picked up Nicole, who had terrible back ache due to the humid weather. As we three absolutely need to discuss we thought we will get together every day until this quarantine is over. For the moment they talk about April 3rd !! Despite the two days of discussion of all kind of things and how this virus has arrived in China and spread out in the whole world, we couldn't find an answer to the question "Why do people fight for toilet paper" ?? and not only in Belgium but in the whole world ???
So far we have 886 infected people in Belgium and 4 death 90,86,80 and 73 years old. Third age teenager I would say.
This was the first Corona Virus weekend.
