Advice, guidelines, rules or laws - it's not clear what's what! Stay at home and don't mingle, or Eat Out To Help Out and support all the people trying to earn an honest living and get the economy going again? I am going to feel pangs of guilt whatever I do. Have there ever been such mixed messages?
Trying to be positive in the midst of this pandemic is proving to be challenging, isn' it?
I can only manage it by setting my own house in order. I do have some control here and opinions I can trust (mine!). Having made a good stab at Kondoing the whole house (nearly completed though I ran out of steam with the miscellaneous category) I am now having downstairs decorated.
I am shocked at how bad it is when I take down all the paintings and curtains and remove all the decorative things from the kitchen. sitting room and hall and stairs.
While it is all being painted I will be socially distanced upstairs or in the studio or garden finishing off the Kondo process I hope.
Expensive work requring scaffolding will be done on the chimney, and the hedges will be trimmed and the grass given its last cut before winter.
Such an upheaval! But I am focussing on how it will feel in a few weeks time - fresh and tidy, water and windproof, and I'll be ready to snuggle down for the duration if need be.
Are you managing to find a positive? Do share - we all need all the positivity we can get!
It helps me so much to share my thoughts here.
I hope it helps you too.
