UK Lockdown: Day 273

This ‘Christmas Eve Eve Eve’ has been as busy and exciting as the previous years which had been a nice semblance of ‘normality’.

The day started with a morning interview at a cool bar. I was really apprehensive about it because I’ve not worked in a bar for so long, but the interviewer was pretty cool, and certainly an interesting character. Although he definitely gave me plenty to think about. I at least have a bit of time to think about things until the next interview.

After all that excitement it was time to do the Christmas meat and vegetable shop. We’d only been in the shop five minutes and I started to have a panic attack because it was SO BUSY and no one was socially distancing and I just had to get out of there straight away. It was just too much. I’ve been so careful recently I just couldn’t cope with the idea of it all being for absolutely nothing. Never in my life did I think I’d leave a supermarket because it was too busy—- what has Covid done to me?

Once I’d recovered from that inedibly strange experience we found a shop which was adhering to the rules, but sadly they had nothing we needed so we had to go elsewhere. Thankfully it was a case of third time lucky, and all was well with the food shop.

Today we also had a delicious delivery from a local independent baker, Bakes by Georgie. I can’t wait to dig in to this box of treats over the next few days.

The theme continued this evening as we went for a wander up to Roundhay to see some houses which have been decorated especially to spread some Christmas cheer. My favourite was ‘Three French Hens’. Comical and creative, this window display made us both smile.

The festive trail is all in aid of raising money for Leeds families who are in need through the charity called Zarach. For more information follow this link.

Tonight film on our Christmas Countdown is ‘Christmas with the Coopers’, a funny film about a highly dysfunctional family.
