Slowly things began to return to an *almost* normal. Garden centres were re-opened and our house gained a whole host of new plants.
And then things got stricter again. I did a whole lot of Autumn baking, took many many baths and started to settle back in to the misery of not seeing people again.
December saw things get stricter again, so it was back to local walks and the weekly food shop being our main source of excitement. I got back into baking again and made lots of Christmas treats (that I *unfortunately* had to eat all myself as we couldn't see anyone to share them with).
I was so happy to see my sister for Christmas. We didn't stretch to three households, but instead ate a roast, prepared a massive buffet (for three people, which my boyfriend and I then spent days finishing) and watched films on Disney Plus. It was relaxing and just so exciting to see her.
New Year's Eve was a day for a final walk, this time on some snowy local hills. 2020 was a weird year, but it's made me so grateful for my health, my job, and treasure times when I can see my friends and family.
