What an interesting year 2020 has been…

It started off like any other year but then it showed its ‘made in China’ label. The world lost many people too soon. Families were kept apart. The world came to a standstill.

I now check labels almost obsessively. ‘Made in South Africa’ makes it into my basket followed by anywhere else other than ‘made in China’.

I wear a mask, social distance and obsessively sanitise my hands. I take no chances and turn down invites.

I miss greeting friends with hugs and listening to the buzz of voices in crowded spaces. I miss walking without a mask and seeing people smile with more than their eyes.
