Q4. Best way to stay positive?
BLETHER-Keep in touch with friends that make you laugh.
GET OUTSIDE- breath in the fresh air, listen to the birds, Be thankful for the small things.. the garden, the dog, my family, the sunshine, our health, and knowing that this will uncertain time will pass.
READ MORE- make time to read a book.
I have so many books to read, I’m quite looking forward to having the time to read.
LIGHT A CANDLE- I always light a scented candle when I work.
SET THE TABLE- one of the things I do is set the dinner table every night with napkins, flowers from the garden and I light my table candles, creating a sense of atmosphere that differs to my daytime. I switch on my garden lights and might pour a glass of wine whilst I cook dinner.
MAKE SOUP- I make soup in a crisis. I think it’s a Scottish thing.
My current favourite is a John Pawson recipe for Leek and Potato soup with plenty of white wine and butter and black pepper...Such a simple recipe but so good.
