Love Language in Lockdown

On one of their royal pillows, Bunny & Bearli pose on the terrace with their homemade masks, compliments of Poppy.

Creativity in lockdown is a particular delight.

When one evening Claudio said in his super sexy accent, “Bunny & Bearli need masks”, my ears perked up.

He got out the glue, some string, scissors, and found some material.

Left the results drying overnight are pictured; Right application the next day.

Application was immediately followed by the photo shoot featured below.

Finally, the video recording which was spontaneously born for B&B to give their own Public Service Announcement (PSA). Click image to see Bunny & Bearli’s PSA.

Indeed, a bit of fun in surreal times.

Underneath it all, an act of love and tenderness from my otherwise stoic and silent husband.

We have been in lockdown in Lugano since 20 March (this happened 16 April). We live in two rooms, space is premium. Headphones are often invaluable to get a little ‘space’ and quiet. There are even some days when I crave a bit of complex adult conversation about something other than Covid-19 or what to have for dinner. Then, Claudio speaks with his love language, and I remember why I came here 13 years ago (on 25 April exactly 13 years ago) and stayed.
