Typical innit

At a time when we could all be out and about enjoying the glorious weather, we’re on lockdown 🤪🤪🤪❌🚶🏻‍♀️

I can hear the birds 😃🕊🕊🐦

For me, in my job, its business as usual. This is my life…confined to the house for 22 hours a day, 2-4 weeks at a time, with a few outing exceptions like hospital visits or the doctor or a bit of shopping. I don’t mind so much in winter when its cold and rainy, but it’s a mental (and emotional) challenge in spring, summer and autumn. 🌸🌼🍁

But, I am making the most of my break and getting out while the going is good and making the most of my allowable time off and out ….adhering to work and government guidelines. Thankfully this position is not like many others I’ve had in the past where I’m not allowed to leave the house at all for 2 weeks at a time due to the nature of the client’s condition and requirements.

Make the most of your time out allowance and enjoy the fabulous weather….the air is clearer, I can hear the birds, there’s less pollution, I can see the stars at night, and nature is drawing breath….

Clear skies 🌝🌝

…I think it’s finally happened….

I have over the years often said how much I love the UK, how wonderful life is in this country, how priviledged we are to live in a 1st world country and how much I enjoy living here, and now…….after 9.5 years……..

I b*itch about the Government (vehemently), complain about the weather (occassionally),

 I have a right old moan when the bus is 5 minutes late,

I complain when the tube is delayed by a signal failure and I have started to realise that 6 months of winter is not fun!  🙂

I have become an avid birdwatcher,

British Jay

feed the foxes in the garden, chase the squirrels, avoid Oxford Street to the best of my ability, am seriously considering ‘wintering’ in a sunny countryand get all teary-eyed when I hear the National Anthem! 😉

today, I had a full Christmas lunch with all the trimmings (albeit pork fillet and not a turkey),

watched a Pantomime on TV and listened to the Queen’s speech!

I think it has finally happened……I have morphed into a Brit!!!!
