I’m finding it difficult to know where or how to begin this month’s blog,
so I think I'll begin with how I feel. I’m over whelmed with information about Covid 19 and just trying to
take each day as it comes. The weather has been kind and I've thrown
myself into getting much awaited jobs done outside in the garden. I realise we are extremely lucky to have a large garden and animals to
keep us all occupied and give us an interest to pass the time during this
I'm trying to make happy memories in such a frightening and
unpredictable time in all our lives. Having lunch sitting in the garden’s sunshine, making plans to create
a garden pond, painting stones outside, spending time with the animals,
baking, drawing, not stressing about school work, because mental health
and wellbeing are far more important for the time being.
Being positive is key, love the ones in your household whether people
or animal, or enjoy your own company, just be happy with what you've got.
In time this will be a memory, a sad and upsetting one in many ways but something that inspires me each day is nature. Watching birds busily
making their nests, flowers bursting into patches of colour in the
garden, seeing the longer lighter evenings. Nature is carrying on and so will we. So on your daily walk or out in your garden, take time to:
● listen to the birds ● enjoy the daffodils and primroses
● lookout for the return of the oyster catchers ●enjoy when the sun shines ● hedgehogs out of hibernation ● frog spawn
But most of all...
stay at home
