Week 47: Home

30th November 2020

This week after 8 weeks of living at a friends house while our bathroom was renovated we were finally able to move home. While the flat is still far from being back to normal, being back feels great.

This week was also Thanksgiving in America. In past years we’ve hosted a Thanksgiving in our flat inviting friends that we’d like to thank for playing a part in our year. This year, due to COVID and lockdown, rather than the big gathering of friends we’ve had round in the past, we celebrated it alone. It was nice to be back in our flat for it, it was sad that we couldn’t share it with friends.

One of the traditions for our Thanksgiving is going round the group with everyone having a chance to give thanks to the things that they are thankful for that year. It’s a nice chance to reflect on things that enable us to be where we are in the world, to appreciate the people that help you get there.

Hopefully next year we’ll be able to have friends around again, and give thanks for an enjoyable year.
