Coping with the New Normal – March #SoSS
Hello my dark Darlings,
Well this will be a random #SoSS post, because I’m a rather random gal! Not a deep thinker (although my offspring try to drag me along with them). My OH is always showing me spreadsheets and talking to me about interest rates making me want to run away & hide – it feels like maths class decades later. So that’s a glimpse of me – more creative than practical!
Last weekend was lovely, no demands on me so I watched the entire first series of Light as a Feather – I make no secret of enjoying media pitched at teenagers ( the angsty sexual attraction and friend dramas are so vivid). It has a great supernatural ouija board vibe to it (check out The Craft :film, Beautiful Creatures 1 film, book series & Sabrina the Teenage Witch:series on Netflix for similar subject matter).
I shared my #SinfulSunday image & thoughts with Don’t Take it Lying Down
That same evening I set about reading all the pieces submitted for Food 4 Thought Friday meme on the topic of Sport is Fun. It was wonderful to have so many link up (19 in all). I was only allowed to highlight 2 but I’ve sneaked a couple of others I loved below.
The working week commenced with a normal Monday, but I spent Tuesday ringing relatives and friends of my father’s to cancel his upcoming memorial. I’d been hoping it could be done with dignity before the Covid-19 lockdown, but I began to fear for the health & safety of attendees (ranging from 21-96) congregating. The Government stance has helped me, removing the fear that someone will turn up, uniformed that we’ve had to postpone it. Sad times, but talking with people who shared their memories of my dad was the silver lining.
On Wednesday the strangeness began – by lunchtime my office was operating social distancing – most colleagues left to work from home (poor IT staff: so many laptops to be configured in haste). My WFH days will be Tuesday and Thursday. I intend to be diligent about my work output – not going on Twitter except for lunchtime & my coffee break.
Encouraging Twitter friends to tweet/share pictures of panties from their archives was fun, #pantiesfromthepast will now be a ‘thing’ which I do on a Thursday. Please join in if you want to, give encouragement to those who do. I offer no restriction on panty colour or style, and please display them on any body – you should know I disagree with lingerie having gender limitations.
Reading people’s blogs, I’ve noted down what I’ve enjoyed, so a short list here:
