That’s my plan for this evening, to look after me. I think it’s fair to say that a lot of the world is in shock. There feels like a lot of upheaval and a lot of change. The weather over here has changed recently. We had a mild October with some really warm here and now bam! November has brought wind, rain and the cold. The clocks have changed over here aswell which means it gets dark really early. Work is stressful and I have a cold. So even without politics getting in the way I’ve been feeling rather up and down and emotional.
So this evening I will not be watching the news, not looking at political comments or memes on Facebook, I will be making and eating yummy apple crumble, I will have a nice, hot relaxing bath and read a book, I will watch a film and do some colouring. I will look for the positives in life instead of the negatives. I will look around for colour and joy in the world instead of fear and hatred. And my advice to you is that you do the same. Look after yourself, your friends and your family. Take some time to be kind to yourself, to care for yourself and to relax.
