Coming upto a year later, I decided it was finally time to come back to this space – and what a year it has been! Amidst a global pandemic, there have definitely been some highs, as well as some lows, and I can’t wait to get back to writing all about them here!
I think it’s safe to say 2020 was an unsteady year, full of fear and dread but also gratitude and love. It was a year we could have never imagined and now a year later, we’re still suffering consequences. Personally, I can’t say it’s been the worst year I’ve had and I’ve been lucky to be able to make the most of the circumstance we were in. However, if you know me, you’ll know how much physical contact and a simple hug means to me – which surprisingly affected me a lot more than I thought I would. It made me appreciate the people around me and the lifestyle I’ve been lucky to be living – similar to many others really.
Unfortunately, not everybody has been as fortunate and my heart goes out to anybody who’s lost a loved one, been a key worker working day in and day out and also anybody who’s struggled within themselves. I know I have, (I’ll leave that for another post) but it’s important to remember there is light at the end of this tunnel and before we know it we’ll be going back to some form of normality.
I just wanted to come back and say hello really (from under my mask) and that I hope you’ve all been keeping well under the current situation. I hope I can provide you will a little bit of escapism, even if it’s for a few minutes a week. Lets begin!
