Being Able To Breathe

Hi, well we have managed our first full week in self-isolation. And what a strange feeling it is. I don't know about you, but I am losing track of what day it is at times. Thank goodness for a calendar and a laptop to tell me.

I have also found that adjusting to not actually seeing many people has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Going on essential shopping trips has been a bit like running the gauntlet of emotions. I've been really happy to see other people, but then really anxious about them getting too close, although I have to say people in our town have been really good about this. I also had conversations with people I've never met before...wonderful what happens when you're stood in a queue 2m from the nearest person!

The biggest emotion is naturally not being able to visit family and friends, but again thank goodness for technology! Facetime, Zoom, Skype and many others have really come into their own and saved the day as far as this is concerned.

We are all looking forward to the day when we can actually go and visit them. Until then, be kind to yourself and others by staying at home (if you can!), staying safe and making the most of the fact that even though humanity has stopped moving around so much, Spring is around the corner, daffodils are gleaming, blossom is appearing on the trees, the birds are busy making nests, and all the hedges have a lovely green coat back on them once again. Let's take this down time to appreciate Mother Nature. :)
