Lockdown Blog Day 42

Monday, 4th May 2020

It’s Star Wars Day! May the Fourth and the Force be with you!

And, confusingly, it’s not the bank holiday. That’s on Friday. Although, at the moment, who would know whether a day is a bank holiday or not?

All days have a significance, even if lockdown is blurring the days somewhat. There are certain tasks I’ll always do on certain days. A good routine is essential to freelancing. Mondays, for instance, are always my admin days. If I have an editing job on, great. But today is the day for scanning in all those receipts, dealing with invoices, sending out boring emails.

Whilst we’re in this lockdown and losing track of days, we need to remember that certain days do have a significance to us. There will be anniversaries, birthdays and national days all taking place in lockdown. And just because we’re losing the ability to celebrate these days with others, it doesn’t mean we cannot mark the day in some other way.

Star Wars Day is not really celebrated in my household (no Jedis in here!). But, I’m sure like many did for Easter, we’ll mark special days in our own special ways this year.

In other news, have you seen the latest comment on my testimonials page? It’s really lovely – thanks!
