Had a lovely wee early morning walk with Claire this morning!
So I decided to have a wee day out to myself.
Here I am in Abbie the campervan in Largs, appreciating stillness. I’ve had a Little Coffee Caravan oat latte and a large bit of Victoria Sponge.
I have the heater on and I’m working on my crochet blanket that had sprung some holes. I’ve been meaning to do this for ages. Stressing about the holes growing bigger and not fixing them after I’d put all the work into crocheting it.
This is what my van was for. A chance to chill, a chance to relax and reflect. I have had the loveliest time. I’ve put stuff up for sale, I’ve taken a whole lot of photos. “No?!?!?” You say… “surely not….” 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣🤣
I’m listening to Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast and she’s interviewing Deepak Chopra. They are talking about how in the western world we don’t appreciate stillness.
We all spend so much of our time running around with work, clubs, deadlines etc that I don’t know that we ever really take the time just to stop and be still. I am loving every minute of this. A chance to do nothing but catch up on my crochet and watch the tide come in. I can’t bring myself to leave 😆
It’s funny…. the only slight negative today was that I had nothing to drink and I got thirsty. I had bottles of Diet Coke in the fridge with no bottle opener…. I had water but it wasn’t fresh enough to drink, only to boil and I couldn’t be bothered boiling it….. and yes there were shops, but I stayed in the van! It’s probably the thirst that drove me home. Gets home and finds can of juice in handbag. 🤷🏻♀️🤣 oh how I laughed!
So today I’ve taken some time to reflect, recharge, rest and relax. I’m home now with Craigie and the monster pups and the fire’s roaring and the candles are on
I’ve not seen any covid news today or any other news for that matter. just watched the sea do it’s thing and that’s good enough for me.
Stay safe everyone 🔥🔥🔥
