Glad I didn’t have to be alone for my first pandemic new year (especially since I actually had Covid during the other new year). My bubble buddies picked me up in time for the ‘reunion’ dinner, and I introduced them to the Yee Sang.
Following a tough semester last year, the university was closed for an extra few days. Staff needed it and I had grand plans of working on a book proposal, but Covid-19 had other plans for me.
Because of that, I ended up taking an extra few days off work last week on sick leave to recover. I’m not fully well yet but returned to work today in preparation for the return to teaching next week.
I needed to take breaks to rest – the fatigue is still bothering me and some symptoms have reappeared over the weekend – but it was nice to be doing something productive again after a couple of weeks of convalescing.
Recovering from Covid, off sick from work, new lockdown in the UK, numbers going up tremendously in Malaysia, insurrection in the US, binged Bridgerton and now on to The Crown …
It’s almost like a new year is an arbitary concept that has no impact of life events. Ha! 😀
I took down the tree.
