Taking blog photos on our evening walks has become the norm these past few weeks. Even though both Professor M and I are now officially on holiday and have all day to do whatever we want, we still tend to go for walks in the evening, often with the camera in tow.
And because of COVID-19 pandemic, this year I’ve spent more time exploring the area around our suburb and the neighbouring suburbs than I’ve done in the 20 years that I’ve lived here.
I’ve discovered nature reserves I didn’t know even existed, I’ve learned that various wild flowers blossom at different times, and I’ve observed several species of urban wildlife up close. OK, mainly rabbits. And seagulls. What on earth are seagulls doing so far inland? I mean, we’re nowhere near the sea.
And I’ve made good use of my existing wardrobe, too. I’ve worn everything I have in so many ways and in so many different combinations that I can honestly say that I really don’t need a huge wardrobe. In fact, I could do with even fewer clothes as I tend to repeat outfits quite often and wear my favourites all the time.
I’ve even resurrected some old favourites. Take this dress, for example. I used to wear it all the time, 3 years ago. But for the past couple of years, it has mostly just been abandoned at the back of the closet, out of sight and out of mind.
And now, as I was clearing the closets and trying to decide whether it was time to finally let it go, I noticed that it actually matches the cardigan I bought in spring… Perhaps I should keep it for a bit longer after all, what do you think?

Have you rediscovered old favourites at the back of the closet?
