I didn’t think it would happen to me but it has, I’ve finally lost my marbles and gone loopy. I don’t have much evidence to offer you at this stage but I will do my best.
Firstly, I work from home normally. I live alone normally (apart from that crazy cat) and so I’m used to being alone. I quite like it usually. I’m one of these introverted extroverts. If you met me out, you’d think I was a very extroverted person – and I am at that moment, but I need my alone time in order to recharge my happy batteries.
I knew that the self-isolation thing would hit most people much harder than me. I have another bit of my normal working in my favour you see, my relationship with Thom. Even thought it’s a real-life relationship, we still live at a distance and so each night, we get on Skype together and talk, or watch a movie or something ‘normal’.
So basically, much of my life hasn’t changed at all. I’m still here, working away, doing my blog, talking to my man, blah de blah de whoopee.
But I have standards, you know. I often joke about the joy of working in my pajamas, but I don’t really, actually, do it.
No, I get up, I get clean, I do my hair, I put on clothes (admittedly, not always ones I’d wear outdoors, but they are clean clothes and I could at least answer the door). I always, and I mean always, wear a bra.
Yep, underwear is important when maintaining standards and I always have fresh, sensible* undies to wear each day even when I’m completely alone and not planning on going out. (I have a drawer of sensible undies and a drawer of insensible undies… the second drawer is almost stuck shut these days, so loathed am I to put on anything likely to cause me pain… like underwired bras!).
You can imagine my surprise then, when this morning I got up and thought ‘NAH! Can’t be bothered with a bra today’.
Not only that, but I decided I’d shower later, rather than before work. I put on yesterday’s sweater.
I’m actually blushing as I type this to you. I’m ashamed. My standards have gone, the world is in pieces and I’m going with it.
I swear I’m going to get ‘it’ back. I plan on having a pamper day this week. I will do mani and pedi, do my hair properly, remove the stubble from my legs etc.
If a bear shits in the woods, does it exist if the Pope doesn’t see it?
That is my question to you today, dear Reader. Also, do you have your underwear on?

Until it becomes clear what can and what can’t be linked to and from a Flickr picture without it being considered ‘commercial activity’ I will no longer be linking to stores, marketplace, or events. I shall instead link to the creator’s Flickr where available, so you can find what you need from them directly. I recommend using SeraphimSL to find event details and links.
