If I was a better person, I would be spending the time in lockdown do something wonderful like reading or podcasting or crafting. Instead, I’m not. True, I’m working my socks off, moving from business contracts to focus on (my real editing passion) fiction works. But, I can’t help but feel that I’m somewhat wasting my time in lockdown.
I do wonder how we will all emerge from this experience. Will we have, as a collective, used this experience to better ourselves? Or will we quickly drop back into our old ways? Will we, as I suspect, soon forget this ever happened and only reminders, like children missing GCSE results, be a way of remembering that was the year that was.
On a lighter note, I’m running short on salted liquorice. This sounds disgusting, I realise. But after I was introduced to it in Finland, I now can’t get enough of the stuff. My local independent sweet shop stocks some amazing salted liquorice, but, I’m now rationing myself. #firstworldproblems! Indeed.
