Self Care on a budget

I am continuing the Allotment theme as part of my Financial Education blog.

I find my allotment not only allows me to grow my food. During the lockdown, it provided me with the solitude I needed for my mental Wellbeing.

For example, the other day hubby and I were on the allotment. As part of the ‘allotment ritual,’ we always put up the fishing umbrella.  It’s almost a tent and keeps us dry if it starts to rain.

If it does, we pour ourselves a cup of coffee and sit together chatting about what we have achieved, that day, usually while we are having lunch.

This particular day, I was sat under the umbrella on my own, sipping my coffee, and the rain started to fall.

I could hear the pitter-patter of the raindrops as I sit back in my seat watching the steam from my coffee winding towards the sky.  The sound of the rain momentarily transports me back to when I was camping as a kid. The singing birds and the smell of the wet earth after the shower made me feel at peace.

Why do I include this subject as part of my Financial Education blog?

It just so happens that my allotment doesn’t cost too much and provides a place of solitude that I needed to feel safe.

So I get self-care on a budget.

Sometimes we all need someone to talk about our personal finances and help us reach our goals.
