Glimmer of Hope

Good Morning,

Anyone else finding it more and more difficult as the weeks go on? I appear to be in the same cycle of being motivated and productive on a Monday, weary and restless on a Tuesday, procrastinate all day Wednesday, power through on Thursday and then I’m totally drained by Friday. I love working from home and I’m quite happy to do so for the foreseeable future, I just know everything will be easier when we’re allowed slightly more social contact in a physical / face to face manner.

In Scotland, meeting up with another household outdoors and from a 2 metre distance is permitted from this Thursday, 28th May and I cannot wait. This is the glimmer of light at the end of what has felt like a long, dark and never ending tunnel. I know this is going to be a long ass week leading up to that much longed for moment of seeing my nieces for the first time in 11 weeks. It’s going to be difficult not to hug and shower them with kisses however I’ll be grateful to simply be in their company again and can look forward to closer contact hopefully in the not too distant future.

It’s also my friends birthday this weekend and while we still can’t celebrate in the way we normally would, I’m grateful I’ll be able to spend time with her in the garden albeit from a safe distance. So many occasions and celebrations have been cancelled as a result of the situation and I really feel for anyone missing out on what are still important moments and milestones in life. I know we’ll make up for it when the time is right but it doesn’t make it any easier in the present moment.
