A Life Less Ordinary
May 8th 2020. The summer has arrived, the temperature is climbing and here I sit at my desk with a cup of coffee and a chocolate biscuit. The smell of home baking wafting through the door and the radio chirping away in the background. A diary once bursting with appointments now sits gathering dust. My camera, cleaned within an inch of its life, is tucked away in my bag. And my kilt hangs in the wardrobe, pressed and ready to go.
Lockdown. There is absolutely no doubt that for the majority of us this is the strangest experience we have gone through and most likely ever will. Separated from family and friends, finding new ways to entertain ourselves and communicate. We fill our days, gardening, crafting and creating wonderful dance routines that we share with the world. Staying home to save lives while the super hero key workers keep the country running.
From time to time my mood has dipped, I've lost my mojo and made very little of my day. But on the whole I've taken this time for what it is, an opportunity to slow down and appreciate the little things. Watering the garden, getting lost in a book or going for a bike ride with the girl I'm lucky enough to isolate with.
What promised to be the busiest wedding season of my career, has now become a opportunity to reflect and be thankful for those I have in my life. To all of the couples whose wedding plans have been disrupted, I send my love and the promise that you will get through this. Take time to appreciate the love you share and like the flowers in the garden it will continue to grow.
