This is today’s prompt on day 27 of Bloganuary. That means 4 more days to go, so almost there! I can honestly say that it has been a fun challenge so far to participate, but also a challenging one. Sometimes it’s hard to write about a given topic when you don’t feel inspired about it. On the other hand it also gave me a chance to discover: my writing style, topics that I like (or don’t like) writing about, but also that I don’t find it necessary to write a post every single day. It has taught me a lot. If you are a bit like me, you don’t want to have to write a post every day because you have to, you want to do it because it is fun to do!
Well, with the Covid-19 situation and all, it is hard to find some solitude. Working from home, you are never really alone. I am actually surprised that I haven’t been needing a lot of solitude. You would expect being together with someone for 24/7, almost 3 years straight, would become a bit of an issue, but it hasn’t.
Paul and I have found a nice rhythm together, and we are also really good mates, not only partners. That helps a lot! Don’t get me wrong, we both sometimes can ‘stick each other behind the wallpaper’ (this is a Dutch saying: ‘Ik kan je wel achter het behang plakken!’ – Something/someone you actually love but have had enough of for a while at that moment.) We try to give each other some space.
Does that mean I do not need a moment of solitude at all? Of course I do! These days I find some solitude while having a nice hot shower (or bath), some pampering time (face masks and footbaths), or have a walk over to the supermarket! I don’t know why, but doing groceries is something I like to do. Yep! I know I am a weird one!
