The Pandemic Journal

During this unprecedented time I am going to be keeping a journal. Taking the time out as and when needed to gather my thoughts and share them. Starting from Monday 23rd March 2020

Us two – AA Milne

Wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,
There’s always Pooh and Me.
Whatever I do, he wants to do,
“Where are you going today?” says Pooh:
“Well, that’s very odd ‘cos I was too.
Let’s go together,” says Pooh, says he.
“Let’s go together,” says Pooh.

“What’s twice eleven?” I said to Pooh.
(“Twice what?” said Pooh to Me.)
“I think it ought to be twenty-two.”
“Just what I think myself,” said Pooh.
“It wasn’t an easy sum to do,
But that’s what it is,” said Pooh, said he.
“That’s what it is,” said Pooh.

“Let’s look for dragons,” I said to Pooh.
“Yes, let’s,” said Pooh to Me.
We crossed the river and found a few-
“Yes, those are dragons all right,” said Pooh.
“As soon as I saw their beaks I knew.
That’s what they are,” said Pooh, said he.
“That’s what they are,” said Pooh.

“Let’s frighten the dragons,” I said to Pooh.
“That’s right,” said Pooh to Me.
“I’m not afraid,” I said to Pooh,
And I held his paw and I shouted “Shoo!
Silly old dragons!”- and off they flew.

“I wasn’t afraid,” said Pooh, said he,
“I’m never afraid with you.” 

So wherever I am, there’s always Pooh,
There’s always Pooh and Me.
“What would I do?” I said to Pooh,
“If it wasn’t for you,” and Pooh said: “True,
It isn’t much fun for One, but Two,
Can stick together, says Pooh, says he. “That’s how it is,” says Pooh.

 

Day Nine

Tuesday 31st March. I wish that somehow the newspapers could print that this whole thing has been a twisted April Fools Joke, I know that isn’t going to happen but I can’t quite believe the news today. Before the news came on the radio I was happily dancing in the kitchen with Arlo before breakfast. […]

Day Seven and eight

Wow. We have made it a whole week and I can’t quite believe it. It’s now a common occurrence in this household for Arlo to slip out of bed as soon as he hears that Grandma is up and about for their jam and toast breakfast date. One positive out of all this is time. […]

Day five and six

I didn’t have the time to write up a post yesterday because I was busy playing with Arlo for most of yesterday. Friday was a fairly uneventful, I had a video-conference with my colleagues first thing and it was strange to see my boss in a hoodie at home! Arlo spent most of the day […]
