Is April Fool's Over Yet?

Well, I'm now into week eleven of lockdown (thanks to a badly timed and very drunken stint in Pisa back in February). And while it's definitely had its fair share of wobbles, I gotta be honest, on the whole I'm kinda loving it. Like McDonald's level, baby. Makeup free, no alarm, no commute, #BikiniLife in full, weather-dependent flow...yep, it's been pretty good. So here are a few things I'm grateful for...

Routine. For our daily routine of coffee and orange juice every morning (cos sometimes it's the littlest things).

The kindness of others. For a £40 Just Eat voucher from Matt's boss which resulted in a kickass kebab coated in my absolute fave ever condiment (if not overall food full stop); burger sauce. Secondly, for the neighbours who left a 'help yourself' book box outside on the day I ran out of books. And thirdly, for the people in my life being complete and utter babes; supportive, adorable, and always full of enthusiasm. 

Sunshine. For being able to work outside in the garden, which subsequently means I'm probably the most tanned I've ever been in England (and definitely almost as tanned as France a few years ago). Cheers, UK, really nailed it with the lockdown weather, babe.

Alcohol. And lastly, but most importantly, I'm grateful for gin and red wine because they've helped make this shit show of a situation more bearable with saucy juniper notes, full-bodied flavour, and high alcohol content. I would be certified insane without them both.
