The last few months have been weird, haven’t they? (Sorry, that’s an understatement).
When lockdown first happened, I was already working from home in my little studio and very quickly my husband was also asked to work from home. Our daughter was home for study leave from Bristol University and would eventually take her exams and continue her studies online.
Once the whole situation began to materialise, I realised that my primary purpose would be the health and happiness of my family. Obviously, I would help anyone else in need, my friends and anyone in our community, but the mental and physical health of my husband and daughter were paramount.
My husband and I had already missed one holiday because of Thomas Cook going into liquidation, and our trip to Greece would be cancelled due to lockdown. However, we were still ok, and very grateful for what we have.
After a few weeks of meal planning and going out on the family shop once a week, I had an idea, why couldn’t we have our Greek holiday at home? All three of us love food and love cooking, it would be an at home adventure. I also love making people laugh, so decided I would post ‘holiday’ updates. Having announced my idea to my Facebook friends I had a momentary panic when I realised I would have to write something at least a little witty each day, no pressure at all then!
It was quite ironic when we had to postpone our virtual holiday for a week because my husband was called out to work!
The best comment from Facebook – Blimey Sally. That’s rotten luck . With luck like that I’m just wondering if you have any holidays booked for next year just so I can avoid those dates!
