Celebrate the Small Things 8-5-20
This post is part of Lexa Cain's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to sign up!
What am I celebrating this week?
I just looked at my calendar and realized it's been seven weeks since I last went into the office. Seven weeks since I left my suburb. Seven weeks since I spoke face to face with another person not in my family.
I can't quite believe it. And more to the point, I can't believe I haven't gone nuts. I'm a social person. I like people. Even people I don't know. I enjoy sitting places and watching them, making up stories about them or just clocking their quirks.
Is it any wonder I've been struggling to write? I haven't seen anyone other than the people I see when I go out to exercise, and even them, we largely avoid each other, walking out into the street to allow the requisite two meters of social distancing.
This week I had my first take-out - Indian from the little hole in the wall curry shop at the end of our street. It was delicious. Partly because it's the best Indian food in town, but also because I didn't have to cook it. We'll do some take aways again next week because it's my birthday. Will have to think long and hard about what I want to make sure I'm not disappointed.
