I usually post gorgeous pictures of sunrises from Cornwall and my beloved river that soothes me so. Be reassured my other windows sometimes tell a different story though. A story we should all be telling too…
The familiar story of those days when we really can’t even reach to look out particular windows because of a pile of dishes we just couldn’t build up the energy to do. Yes. Those days.
Those days when we wander round in an odd assortment of clothes that we would never usually let see the light of day in the real world. Choosing comfort. Nothing else. Quarantine fashion with a whole new twist. And a fascination for why all crisis clothing roads seem to lead to nothing that ever matches. Or is that just me?
All of which is absolutely ok though. Let the dishes wait. Let the hair roots grow (thank goodness you can’t see mine). Let yourself just be however you need to be to get through this. It’s not easy.
Yes, I may have just globally shamed myself into doing my dishes now. But I promise you they will no doubt pile up on other days too. Let’s talk about all our windows. I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. We all have so much more in common than we realise. And that’s truly wonderful and is what keeps me going ?
