The world around me is awakening...
Hordes of cyclists are passing by again, whole groups of walkers and the one and a half meter rule seems to be becoming less important and perhaps that is the case if you don't have much to fear.

If I politely ask someone to keep their distance, I am laughed at. I think about what an acquaintance said recently. "I don't adhere to it and anyone who suffers from it should stay at home."

Now I feel like a vintage 'lady' again instead of an antique 'trien'.
Ready to get back to work with all the old products, making packages and filling holes, because it is becoming bare here and there. I'm taking some stock down to photograph for my website.
When I come downstairs, Jos asks: “where are you going?” ……
