The post that isn’t

I was intending to write a lengthy post today about the fact that Belgium is now, for all intents and purposes, back in lockdown as of today. It was announced on Friday and went into effect today.

The measures remain in effect until 13th December but, speaking selfishly, the impact on us is quite minimal. I am already working from home and we’re not doing a lot of non-essential shopping right now. For the boys, the Autumn break is extended from one to two weeks but they will all be going back to school on the 16th. The main impact is going to be that sport and youth activities have all been cancelled — but with schools being open, they won’t be as isolated as they were in the Spring.

I was all set to go on at some length about the details, and then Monday happened. I have spent six hours dealing with one work-related crisis after another. Truth be told, crisis is too big a word, it’s more a case of too many people wanting too much stuff right now. Either way, though I now have neither the energy nor the motivation to start parsing exactly where we are now. So this is all you are going to get from me today.

Belgium is in lockdown, Christmas is cancelled, the medical community are broadly happy and the biggest impact on me is that I am going to really need a haircut in a month’s time.
