Isis whispers secrets in the sheep's ear

Occupied !




On Saturday morning I discovered the measures of deconfinement that our Prime Minister Sophie Wilmes announced in the night of Friday to Saturday.

It will happen in 4 steps. From May 4 on we are allowed to go out and some more shops will be open for fabric and sewing supply of course so people can sew their masks. She had promised that each Belgian would get one mask, unfortunately there are not enough and we are just a little country of 11 million inhabitants.

Sophie did a very good job and our politicians whose fathers were already in the government looked a little dumb besides her.

Wearing a mask is only obligatory in public transports and recommended on the street and in shops which I find very reasonable.

In the afternoon we met at Nicole's

and chatted about how we would act when on the 4th we will be let free !  We all agreed not to go out the first day if it is not absolutely necessary, anyway shops selling items for sewing and needlework is not for us. And masks we have bought in the pharmacy.

The sun was shining again and we stated that since we are locked in on March 13, the weather had been wonderful warm and sunny, while when we could run around free, it rained and it was cold ! I bet it will be the same when our golden cage doors will be opened !

Sunday was a lazy day. I just did nothing but watching TV and discussing our move from the house to the apartment ! I also made a list with what I have to buy like stores for the windows and a dryer.

The day went by so quickly that suddenly it was supper time. We both stated one thing we are getting more and more tired in doing nothing !!

Hairdressers will stay closed until the very last date  !

Our hairdressers have never closed but of course are taking a lot of precautions. You are fortunate that you didn't dye your hair so nothing changes for you. I agree with you. It is very tiring doing so little.

Still no date for our release as yet.

The kitty is so pretty! That is terrible about hair dressers. The whole thing is really terrible, but we are helpless in the whole mess.

At least you have something to look forward to now. I think we will be waiting much longer :(

Awww on that good looking cat. Your outdoors looks so green. Beautiful.

I'm glad you're going to start opening things. I need my nails and toes done and I really need a haircut.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

Beautiful photos today! I'm glad you kept busy on Sunday, it sure makes the time go by when we are busy!

Just take it day by day, or so I keep telling myself. You're right, though,the beautiful weather will cease once we are all free again (if we ever are . . . )

I don't trust any politician, male or female.
'Doing nothing' can indeed, be tiring , as you've said.
There are certain professions that might go out of business - hairdressing, for example. Quite a waste of time and money!

They're going to ease some restrictions here too. It will be nice to finally go to a store that sells other things than groceries 😊
