Nine Weeks

Last weeks government announcement didn’t go down too well in our house.

  • Nine more weeks
  • Nine fucking weeks.
  • It’s not funny anymore, Jimmy.
  • It was never funny, Bernie.
  • But it’s less funny than it was the first time.
  • Closing the pubs wasn’t funny.
  • But we thought it was only for a couple of months.
  • If only we knew.
  • At least we had good weather.
  • Time off work with pay.
  • Second time, we had Banana bread and Tik Toks, and the weather was still nice.
  • Oh please, spare me from Banana bread, Bernie.
  • Definitely no more banana bread.
  • Thank god for small mercies.
  • Feck off, it wasn’t that bad.
  • Then they closed the pubs again.
  • But we had Christmas to look forward to.
  • How naïve we were.
  • Third lockdown came at Christmas.
  • And yet again, they close the pubs.
  • Then January came, dark nights, shite weather.
  • But at least the vaccines were being rolled out.
  • We thought there was light at the end of the tunnel.
  • We thought we were near the end.
  • Then they hit us with this.
  • No Paddy’s day… again.
  • No pubs opening…again.
  • Nine more weeks.
  • Nine more fucking weeks.

      1. That’s not good and an added downer to repeated lockdowns. Don’t want to jinx us but where we are in Oz we’ve had a pretty charmed life. Hope you’re soon feeling “up and at ‘Em”.

      3. It will get better with the sun shining and people vaccinated. I think even here it’s changed attitudes as much as our lives and as my elderly Mum is in aged care, I’ve been hyper careful if not neurotic about not risking her health.
