Travel And The Memory Of

 This will be the first year in how ever many years that I have not got abroad , my passport is gathering dust and my husbands will need renewing soon and my suitcases have't a clue just as I haven't when I will get to travel again.At first when the holiday to Corfu got cancelled it was a bit heavy sigh you know that sort of sigh when you've run out of tea bags and you know then it is a real emergency.Travel is mostly importantly memories to fall back on especially in these pandemic times where we are all just trying to make sense of the world .You could give yourself a little boost and print of some of your holiday pictures onto canvas or perhaps a mug.I have literally just drunk out of a mug with the coliseum in Rome on it.I am not sure if even I will get abroad next year as who knows with this Pandemic but one thing I can be certain of is I will not let it make me a prisoner and I will do everything I can to be me and to help other people within the current rules and guidelines.

You could also relive memories by looking where you 've been on YouTube or you could plan a trip for the future and live it through Youtube and whilst you're doing this you could sample local cuisine by cooking some dishes that you might eaten or have indeed eaten. A not going abroad year doesn't have to be boring especially as there is so much to see within our own beautiful country take for example my flying visit over the weekend to Cragside or my holiday earlier this month to Boscastle.There is isn't any point moping I don't think yes please do have feet stamp but why not go and do in the current beautiful Autumn canvas we have about us.

A bit of self reflection never did anyone any harm and I shall be doing more of that when oh joy of joy my new kettle is here and my kettle brings me so much joy.But what I won't be doing is baking with Matcha or aka green snot like they've been doing on #GBBO this week it just looks and tastes vile.And of course it is lovely to listen to some Classical music and it soothes my soul just like tea does.I thought I might struggle to write of late but no I don't think I am , and I believe writing is so important as is my own individuality.And being home more has given me more time to appreciate the beauty of out seasons though I don't quite appreciate the rain choosing to rain just on me everytime that I go out to shop.
