Going out is still a bit of a big deal. That’s the truth. After 2 months of staying in by myself it is taking a long time to feel like going out casually again. Not counting that ” casually” now includes mask wearing, social distancing and hand sanitzer. Oh, and also there were not a lot of things to go out to.
But today , along with trying to charge my new piece of technology, I have been to a street market in another town and been for a walk on the beach. And I am going out tonight as well ….exactly what for I am not sure, apart from I will be speaking english.
It was lovely to be back at the market. I think that might be the first time this year .
I had €10 to spend on my winter wardrobe at the second hand stall . I could say that I am into recycling clothes…..or that everything was €2 each. 😁
I have er…recycled 4 jumpers and a gorgeous fleecy nightdress.
Am very happy! I really miss retail therapy.
( I should say that everyone at the market was wearing a mask and it didn’t seem particularly strange. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and buying lots of stuff.)
I nearly said, no thanks, as I had already had a lovely time at the market.
But I wondered who was it made the rule that one really nice thing was all I was allowed in one day.
I went to the beach. I haven’t been this year.
It was lovely. I miss the sea.
Feeling pleasantly relaxed and invigorated by all that sea air and happy buying I checked my phone and there was an invite for tonight.
And…..there is more….. I’ve just had an enquiry about some of my digital images. I would be delighted to sell some .It would mean that I would have an incentive to carry on going out and painting from life and no problems with post offices.
I am investigating how to do this properly without getting all stressed about how I should have done this that and the next thing.
Now I have about an hour before I go out….AGAIN!
May need to have a quiet weekend to recover…….
