One size fits all today - taking part in the Wednesday Hodgepodge, kindly hosted by Joyce at From this Side of the Pond
and using it as my Just Jot it January post as hosted by Linda here.
1. What advice would you give yourself as we begin this new year?
Try not to stress too much about the pandemic, take each day at a time and ditch the guilt.
2. If you could throw a themed party for yourself what would the theme be?
I have absolutely no idea, especially as I hate being the centre of attention. That brought to mind an idea that everyone should be masked then no-one would recognise me but wait, we're all wearing masks at the moment anyway!
3. Tell us where you were and something about what life was like when you were 20- 21.
Still living at home (in London's East End) but engaged to be married. That wedding never actually happened thankfully!
4. What's on the menu at your house this week?
Well we've got 3 days of Hello Fresh meals so haven't had to think too hard about the menu. Plenty of food in my new fridge and freezer so the other days will take care of themselves - especially as hubby does most of the cooking here.
5. What should you do more of this year? Less of?
More of? Staying in touch with family and friends. When we had our first lockdown in 2020 I made a point of phoning family and close friends so that I spoke to someone most days. As time went on I got really lazy at that.
Less of? Eating chocolate. Again we started off well by trying to make sure we got out for a walk each day during lockdown and if we did the reward was chocolate. Now I'm just eating chocolate anyway.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
These questions are good reminders right now as we've just started our 3rd national lockdown and are having to "Stay at home!" Of course this will be tougher as the weather is not so good for getting out for walks and we know that this will last at least until mid February.
In keeping with one of my intentions for the year and being positive, at least two vaccines are now being rolled out. And I keep getting lovely photos of these little ones to brighten my day:
How can I not keep smiling?
