After days of hard rain, it was almost as if nature knew something was up. This morning, the sun was shining, the sky was blue and blackbirds were sweetly singing, almost louder than usual.
Although, looking out of the window now, it appears the clouds are massing again in force. I hope that’s not allegorical.
It’s a massive day here in England today as pubs and restaurants are open inside, gathering limits have been eased and travel opens up, although only to certain countries.
Hugs are allowed. Yay, for people who love hugging! I might just say ‘all right?’ in a socially-distanced way, not because I’m afraid, aloof or a cold fish, but because I come from a family of non-huggers. I also don’t put kisses at the end of every sentence or more emojis to shake an aubergine at.
But it will be nice to have a cup of tea in someone’s house rather than shivering outside and pretending it’s okay.
It’ll be good to get out and about.
That’s about it. Stay safe.
Love, Maddie x
