Today all unessential shops in Schleswig-Holstein (a state of Germany) had to close. I am pretty sure in the other states it is pretty much the same. Anyways, since fabrics and haberdashery and sewing classes are supposedly unessential the shop I am working at is closed as well. If you ask all the fabric-addicts out there, it is very essential. 😉 For now, I still have some office work to do. But who knows if I still have a job, whenever the store is allowed to open again.
Yesterday I went grocery shopping, and I had to laugh when I passed the aisle with the toilet paper: it was empty. 🙂 People are really crazy buying so much toilet paper as if life depends on it. The other thing I noticed was a little weird: I am not worried about getting infected myself. But out of respect for my fellow citizens, I try to keep my distance as much as possible, but that is really hard when your fellow citizens do not do the same. Some came really close to me. I wonder why… Maybe that is another sign that respect is not common anymore. (I noticed that within the last years on different occasions) I will keep trying to do my best to give other people more space. Because the only thing you can change is your own behaviour…
How is the craziness where you live? How much does the virus affect your life? Are people around you respectful?
keep on smiling
