The New Now

Hello friends, how are you all? Are you suffering Corona Blues just a little like me? Maybe, like me, you find it hard to motivate yourself on some days as every day seems to melt into the next and it’s easy to forget what day of the week it even is.

I find that keeping some sort of routine going helps. Getting up the same time each day as before, wearing a special outfit just for yourself and treating yourself to a bunch of spring flowers next time you are out shopping. Cooking your favourite food, or going for an extra scenic walk can do wonders for the soul and luckily here in North Wales the weather has been very kind to us in recent weeks.

Many of us are used to a set routine running through our weekdays, longing for the weekend when we can spend time with family or friends, going to restaurants or the cinema. All that has changed and we all have to find different, often smaller things to bring us joy.

I am still flitting between knitting projects and haven’t finished any of my ongoing projects. One sock and another started, lockdown blanket needs another 20-30cm and my Easy Livin’ jumper is waiting for sleeves.

Being surrounded by countryside definitely helps to blow the Corona cobwebs away and whenever I feel it’s all becoming too overwhelming to cope with, I put on my walking shoes and head outside to clear my head.

I am however already dreaming up plenty of new cast on’s, trying very hard not to get too distracted. I have set myself the goal of finishing one project before starting a new one.

A girl can dream though…!

Stay Safe and well! Until soon xo
