Well, it’s April Fools Day and I reckon we’re the fools and we don’t need no jester. Instead the politicians and leaders of the world seem to be making a right ass of everything. I can’t help but think that if we had acted more decisively, and more quickly to Lockdown sooner, our situation in the UK would not be as grave as it is.
Anyway, I don’t want to make this a political rant. Instead, I’d like to talk about the impact of isolation.
The human race is not meant to be cooped up, or to spend long periods of time alone. Neither are we meant to go day after day without physical contact, a hug or a kiss.
We’re meant to be out skateboarding like Homer from the Simpsons, surfing the waves, chilling on a beach, or sipping coffee in our favourite cafe with our friends and family.
Instead, we are jumping over a Gorge everyday. Let’s just hope we make it to the other side of this Coronavirus.
During times like these we definitely need some humour to lift our spirits. Tik Tok to the rescue, some Jack Black Quarantine Dance.
So, let’s spare a thought for those people who are currently in Lockdown isolation who are at the mercy of Jack Black’s quarantine dance day in and day out! Lol. Only joking. I love Jack Black.
I was chatting to my Malaysian blogger friend Tiffany yesterday about her beautiful bird paintings. These birds make her happy and grateful during this time. I casually asked her if she was with family, friends or alone during Lockdown. She said she was alone.
Please visit her blog to see her beautiful paintings of birds. As we can’t travel at the moment let us go virtually to Malaysia for a visit! http://www.bulanlifestyle.com/
Here she Day 3 of Lockdown on her YouTube channel:

She is doing a diary of her paintings during lockdown.
So do pop to her blog to say hello.

I am loving your blogs on lockdown, I am keeping a journal too. We must all help eachother. I am sad to say, two of our lads are at risk and are on Lockdown on their own neither of them near us. 💜
The problem is we (all countries) needed to lockdown their boarders and not let the virus enter. Any politican doing that would be accused of being a racist. It really is a sensitive subject.
I hope you are doing everything to keep yourself safe.
Be healthy. Stay safe.
Yes boarders are a sensitive subject, no doubt about that. Hard to believe this is happening. Take care, stay well.
We need more humour right now MJ and thank you for this! I just jumped over to see Jack Black dance and laughed, yup exactly what today called for, thank you! 😘 Stay safe, keep spreading good news
I have plans to keep doing so Christy. So glad you enjoyed Jack Black and his quarantine dance. Have you watched School of Rock? Loved that movie with Jack Black. x
Reblogged this on firefly465 and commented:
mjmallon with lots of really good links and links on how to deal with the lockdown.
Thank you Marje. I really enjoyed the Jack Black dance. I loved “School of Rock” or was it Rock School… The viral load article is very interesting and makes a lot of sense.
Ahh me too I really enjoyed School of Rock. And I agree the viral load article makes sense. How you doing today Brigid?
Thank you Marje. I am feeling lots better, although I still wheeze a bit some nights. Glad of better weather, and doing a bit of pottering out in the garden. How are things with you?
So glad to hear Brigid. We are okay. Hubby much better, seems as if myself and daughters are fine. Both of us are working from home and I’m busy writing, blogging and reading. Plus my daughters are keeping me fit with exercise YouTube videos and the like.
I am glad your hubby is better. I hope you all stay well. It is nice to have company.
