One thing is for certain, during these strange and uncertain times, I am finding time to do things I have been putting off for a long time. This blog post being one of them! It is almost a year since I last wrote. I mainly use my Instagram account to keep people that are interested in my work up to date with my goings on, but my website is important too. I wrote a blog post about my favourite things to do in Whitby around this time last year and you can read it here.
We have been fortunate to have some lovely weather in Whitby since this lockdown began. I have been trying to get in my allowed hour of exercise every day, either by going running or enjoying a walk after I have done some design work. The new extension recently opened on the East pier so it was great to have that to ourselves the other night and look back at the town from a different angle. My business has certainly been affected by the pandemic. The shops I supply are all closed so my only business currently is online from my Not on the High Street and Etsy shops. I thought I’d share a few of the pictures I have taken over the last couple of weeks. I know there are so many people that would have loved to be visiting Whitby right now, and I feel lucky to be living here in times like this. The local businesses and residents will certainly be ready to welcome back visitors as soon as it is safe to do so.

Two doors I hadn’t noticed before on Henrietta Street.

Church Street – the quietest I have ever seen it!
