Looking back at the calendar for last year the year got off to a good start. Although I was still working it was only a couple of days a week and I had spare time to do other things. During January, February and March I went to the cinema 8 times, (Cats, Frozen II, The Good Liar, Official Secrets, 1917, David Copperfield, Emma, Military Wives), to the theatre 5 times (Blythe Spirit, Asking for it, Cat and the Canary, Lady Chatterley, And then there were none), and to meetings of the Historical Society 2 times (Medieval Medicine, The origins of nursery rhymes). I also managed to get away on a couple of short breaks to Chester on my own and to Oswestry with Mark, Michelle, Anais and Roman.
I finished work on the last day of March and we went into lock down so all thoughts of using the caravan went out of the window. Instead I started making scrubs on the 1st April, using some of my own fabric and some supplied by groups. That carried on till the end of May and in all I made 45 tops, 40 trousers and 23 scrub hats.
In June I should have been going to Durham and Northumberland for 4 weeks with the caravan but of course that didn't happen (postponed till this year, fingers crossed). I did mange a few socially distanced picnics in the park though with Mark, Michelle, Anais and Roman which were lovely and as soon as the caravan sites were allowed to open on the 4th July we were off! In all I managed 39 nights in the caravan, mostly at Studley but also Somerset, Malvern and Broadway, one week in an apartment in Weymouth and 2 nights in Highbridge. Not bad all things considered.
I have managed to do quite of bit of crafting (aside from making scrubs). I have framed lots pictures for the hall, stairs and landing (pity no one can come and see them!), made some things (about 150 items) for Secret World Wildlife charity for them to sell in their shop and made several Christmas presents.
All in all I think I can say that I have made the most of what could have been a very miserable year!
