Thoughts on 2020
The Big Stuff:
Well… The global pandemic and three national lockdowns were probably the biggest things… What a year. Wist stopped work. I had paternity leave for a short while. Lots of time with the kids at home, together. It’s been a strange year. Awful for so many reasons, for so many people. But there have been tons of really nice things. Lots to be thankful for.
The Small Stuff:
Think we managed one night out this year. But separately… doh! And one lunch together. Lots of deliveries. Lots of baking bread and walking coffees. Lol’s now talking (non-stop) and baking/painting/drawing/running (non-stop). Ave’s starting to talk (“Ma Ma!” “Da!” “Wowol!”) and joining in (between mouthfuls). Zoom meetings, zoom quizzes, zoom gigs, zoom comedy and zoom fatigue. Exhausting. Missing friends. Missing London. But we’ve got it pretty good.
Quote for the year: “Ooh what has someone sent you for your birthday? Oh no, sorry, ignore that, that’s a covid testing kit.”
