Feeling totally down today. So much so that I actually went for a short walk-run promised to a friend. Feel better now. Good enough to start work effectively. Realising that I looked forward to rain (allotment and garden need it) but this gloomy weather does not help my moods. Social isolation is a term people misuse but the real impact will start to kick in about now and it will not get easier…so I am moving to the second stage of self-care: more activity, more inspiring work, more contact with friends. Stay safe, y’all.
