This weeks challenge, set by Amanda doesn’t reqire too much foraging in my archives, instead I’m just looking at those I’ve taken in the last seven weeks, and it’s a surprisingly large number.
Life in lockdown hasn’t been at all stressful for us because we’re used to working together from home. Yes, we’ve missed going out for rides on our bikes but we’ve compensated with home trainer sessions on the terrace. Wherever possible we’ve looked for something to compensate for our loss of liberty. If nothing else, we’ve discovered we’ll survive retirement together!
1. Our lovely gardens
We live in an apartment which has a great view and sits in 27-hectacres of magnificent grounds. We’ve lived here for 15 years and, while we’ve walked through the gardens, we’d never fully explored and fully appreciated them as we have over the period of lockdown.
2. Cooking up a storm
It’s been a challenge shopping just once a week and relying on my fridge/freezer/store cupboard to provide inspiration rather than daily trips to France’s bountiful markets. But I think I’ve risen to the challenge. What do you think?
3. Corona cocktail
My beloved has made his own modest contribution by creating a new cocktail. He could’ve done more than just his role as OCD (Officer in Charge of Drinks) but he’s (deliberately?) been incredibly busy. Aside from his usual role, he’s been Zooming most days trying to find ways for dentists to deal with the COVID-19 transmission risks to themselves and their patients during treatment.
