Life in lockdown

It's been a while but as we muddle through the 4th week of lockdown in the UK, I thought, what better time to write a blog post?

Everything's a little strange right now. There's a lot of uncertainty and we don't know when things will go back to normal, or whatever the new normal will be.

I wouldn't be human if I wasn't worrying about the virus and all of the people it's hurting. I'm heartbroken for those who have lost their lives or people they love. I'm anxious for my brother, a key worker and my best friend, a nurse. I'm nervous about when this all ends and Josh goes back to work and Arthur goes back to nursery. I'm uncertain whether Arthur will even go back to nursery, or whether instead, he'll be going to school. I'm saddened that I was doing so well with my work, and that for the most part, I've had to hit the pause button. I'm gutted it'll be even longer before we get our dream home.

But despite the worries and weirdness, I'm at peace with this way of living for the time being. I'm so grateful we get to stay safe at home. I'm so thankful that the people I love are, so far, okay. 

I'm happy we've been able to do fun things like paint rainbows, plant seeds and play in the garden. I love that we've been blessed with sunshine. I'm grateful we've enjoyed homecooked food every night. 

I feel like it's making us appreciate the little things in life. And I think that once this is all over, we'll appreciate all the things we've missed out on a little more too. 

Let's hope so anyway.
