It was a stressful morning because of stuff I'm trying to sort out with my brother for my Dad - and we are in three different countries! It is what it is.....

So the emotional mood dresser that I am chose a bright and patterned outfit today which - believe it or not - DOES calm me down and make me feel ready for business. I react positively to my happy colours.

Out came the high contrast Boden stripes, glitzy jeans, my favourite bright coat of all time, and Radley London bag (for outside only). I change to outside sneakers for Sam's walks.

All items are between three and six years old. Three cheers for wardrobe golden oldies!

The daily drill for my AT HOME LOOK: shower, styled hair and make-up, an outfit that panders to my feelings when I get dressed, at home only sneakers, and some important accessories. A rare pic of "no specs" because I type without my specs.

I feel strong and in control. We will get through this.

We only go out to walk Sam. Keeping grocery shopping to every two weeks. Absolutely isolating and helping Seattle out as best we can.

Thanks for looking. Off to cook noodles for supper, sanitize, and take Sam out
