Baking block vs painting block

Are they one and the same. In my little world painting and baking go hand in hand.

As I sit typing this blog, I am in a car park surrounded by bin lorries.

This happened while I was engrossed in my thoughts. I looked up and was hemmed in. I couldn’t go anywhere if I tried. (Too late I should’ve taken a photo). The bin men had left their wagons, gone off, but as I look up becoming aware of my situation I see them sauntering back with steaming cups of coffee and paper bags filled with bacon butties.

I was hemmed in and confined.

The men, having eaten their breakfasts, shouted new year wishes to each other, have now driven off.

Over thinking this situation; are the bin lorries symbolic of 2020? The shouts for best wishes in 2021 blowing away the virus and the clear view I have once again, a good omen for 2021!

Three good things come out of the end of 2020, snow on the ground, the nights are getting shorter and we can paint.
