A sheep in a suburban block



I saw this sheep whilst walking our dog. No cropping was involved, this is how close he was to the fence.

Then I went home and went straight to bed.

During the lockdown, both my wife and I are working from home. Now that wouldn’t be an issue if we didn’t have a five-year-old pocket rocket constantly wanting our attention. I’m working full-time hours whilst my wife, fortunately, has part-time hours to complete. But to make sure she has a chance in Hades of doing this, I foolishly volunteer to get out of bed at 5 am to complete as many hours as early as possible, allowing her to work her reduced hours in the afternoon/evening. Most weeks I do 3-4 hours on Saturday and Sunday as well to ensure my hours are properly covered too.

Whilst difficult, this is something I have been able to do for the last seven weeks. The problem is that fatigue has been building and yesterday around 11 am, my body decided that I needed to be horizontal. Running requests for my daughter, eating dinner and this quick walk aside, I spent the rest of the day and night completely horizontal and was in bed by 6:30 pm.

My wife was naturally worried (I’m sure the ever-present C-19 was on her mind) however, I knew that if I could get in all the horizontal time I could, I’d be right the following day. And indeed in the morning (when I’m writing this), I was feeling much better. I’m still taking the day off and taking advantage of the public holiday as well to recharge a little more.

Know your limits, my friends. And don’t try to push past them for longer than you absolutely have to.

That’s it for now. Talk to you soon. Stay safe.
