If you asked me to choose a flavour combination I would enjoy, I would never have chosen this. But one taste of my white chocolate salted caramel popsicle and I was hooked. So much so that I had to make a second batch of these. This now is my new favourite.
Throughout the initial phases of our lockdown I remained extremely positive. This was something I could not control. And because I could not control it, I had to make my peace with the situation. That is not to say I did not have wobbles along the way. There was the fear that my parents would get the virus. Or that people we know and love would die. And I had a few wobbles about how I was going to meet our financial commitments. But for the main part I remained upbeat within myself. The first day of going back to work was weird. Never before had I taken 3 weeks off work and been stuck at home. Other than three visits to the shops I had not been anywhere. I had not gone for a walk other than around my garden. And we had not entertained.

And now I had to drive – yes drive – and sit at my desk. For the most part, the first day was a lot of madness. And then a new routine was found. One where I could still train in the mornings. Do the work that needed to be done. And come home and clean the house. The first few days I did not want to complete that part of my list. It just felt like too much effort. I even ignored the dishes for a day – albeit that was only a chefs knife and cutting board. But I knew I had to embrace the new normal and make it a part of my life. Otherwise I would lose the plot. The uncertainty of when we can fully operate is maddening. But again, totally out of my control. What is your new normal like?
