Whats happening party people. If you’re feeling a little nosey this is the post for you! Todays will just be a quick run through with me and about how things are going right now with all the madness of this pandemic.
It’s now been 3 months of lockdown, and despite the uncertain, scary start, routine has established, and it is now the norm. Panic is not as relevant in my head any more, now we’re just playing a waiting game. Being able to see friends through socially distanced walks is helping, and of course the sunshine is beautiful, making every day easier.
There are so many things I miss- friends, family, the gym, restaurants, being able to go explore everywhere without fear of a virus and without social distancing. The recent announcement of shops and schools returning is disappointing, a second peak is not what we need. I want to be able to embrace my friends with a fat hug and I could not care less about Primark re opening.
That being said, I think lockdown has been the blessing we all needed, to regrow our love for the outdoors, and the simple things. I’ve had more picnics ( like legit picnics with blankets and snacks and paper cups) in the last three weeks than I have in my entire life. No RAGRATs. Lockdown has also made me stop. I have never been a sit down and chill kinda person, i’m usually always on the go, cleaning, cooking, walking, out exploring, but lockdown has allowed me to sit down, read, binge Netflix and just breathe. Its been nice. It’s also made bonds stronger, love grow faster and allowed me to find new things to enjoy.
I’m feeling positive about what is ahead, and the end is in sight. although if we are still in lockdown come 31st August (my birthday) I will riot. Hope you are all keeping well. This is just the bottom of the rollercoaster right before the big high spinny loop, and we got have this far adapting, improvising and growing, and we are nearly out the other side.
Lots of love,
