Solitude, Stress and Sanity – World Mental Health Day

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health. People have their different struggles. I’m pretty rubbish at running. De-stressing, unwinding, and letting off steam isn’t always as spontaneous or easy to achieve when you rely on the assistance of others to do stuff. I’m not sure that in the midst of… Continue reading Solitude, Stress and Sanity – World Mental Health Day

If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #7

If we were having coffee it would probably be in a garden. I’ve been doing a bit of that lately. What will happen when winter hits? I’m still shielding, or as close to shielding is possible when you rely on close contact with others to stay alive. Isn’t it ironic.... those that actually want to… Continue reading If We Were Having Coffee – Life Musing #7

I Went To A Graveyard So I Could Live

Sounds a bit dramatic doesn’t it? Well it’s much more true than I’d ever like to wish. The rebel that I am not, I went for a walk the day before shielding was paused. Yep shielding has paused, on the week that cases start to rise here in England UK. But we won’t go into… Continue reading I Went To A Graveyard So I Could Live

Pandemic Project – One Stitch at a Time (#The100DayProject)

I’m a crafter. It’s something I have to do. I’m rubbish at sitting still, and because my hands are the only thing I can move, I fiddle. One of my aims for the year was to take part in #The100DayProject and what better time for it to fall than in the midst of a global… Continue reading Pandemic Project – One Stitch at a Time (#The100DayProject)

Shielding In Accessible Isolation

Warning: may contain rambling. I went out last week for the first time since March. When I say out I mean I went to the doctors for a necessary routine appointment. If I didn’t have to I wouldn’t have. It felt weird. And I came straight home. I’m still shielding (still without a sword!) and… Continue reading Shielding In Accessible Isolation

Gotta Get Through This – 9 Tips For Self Isolation

I’ve lost count of how many days it’s been since I left the house. I feel I should have started a tally carved into the wall like a prisoner marking the days until release. Leave my mark. A piece of history. It’s what we’re living right now. History. I know every yesterday is the past.… Continue reading Gotta Get Through This – 9 Tips For Self Isolation
