So after cancelling our holiday, I went to the coast a couple of times this week instead. I didn't feel I could motivate myself to go to work, so took my days off anyway. Hubby went to his office, I went to the beach. This is a nature reserve about 60 miles from our home. I was pretending to myself that I was, in fact, in the Outer Hebrides, and it was not that difficult.
This was on Tuesday. Not a single person in sight.
