In the time of the virus: day 49

So.  Today was definitely a rest day, not least of all because I only managed to get a few hours sleep last night.  I’m glad we didn’t have another long walk planned.

As it turned out, it was a good day for generally pottering around the house catching up with a few things, and a short local walk to make sure that I maintain the good effect on my lymph leg of all the walking this week.

We also had our Sunday coffee trip – this time to the Black Forest, somewhere we were meant to visit later this summer but clearly that won’t happen now.  So a virtual trip is the next best thing.

One of the loveliest things I did today was to watch a video of one of the farm workers feeding all the animals at Bath City Farm, as part of a virtual event organised by Country Living Magazine UK.  She is a natural!  and it was filmed in good weather.  It helped make up for the loss of all the time we would normally have spent doing things at the farm.  You can watch it here if you like.  It’s a really nice 15 minute watch, and I’m sure you’ll leave it understanding why I’m so passionate about the farm.

I’ve been reflecting on what I want to take away from the past 49 days (and this week in particular), as tomorrow will be a return to ‘ordinary life’ (ie the extraordinary life that is the new normal).  Which will see me make some changes, and keep some things going.

I hope you’re ok, and finding ways to cope with whatever life has thrown at you right now.  I know that’s different for each of us.  See you tomorrow xx
