The annual Is This Mutton Survey - and Link-Up

I hope you're all suitably feasted and rested after the holiday break. Covid restrictions in London meant that we couldn't mix with any other households, so apart from a couple of doorstep present drops, it was just the two of us. This makes us fortunate because I imagine a number of people were stranded, or on their own. 

Let's hope the new year and the vaccine roll out sees a return to more normal times. Holidays! Travel. Seeing family and friends whenever we want to. Maybe even working normally in an office. 

2020 wasn't all bad though, depending on your circumstances. Mine were well disposed towards working from home;  there were no children to worry about; my elderly mother, although a long way away, stayed safe and well.  I even managed to get one achievement under my belt: plugging away with walks between the start of lock down to the end of the year, and finally succeeding with the #Walk1000Miles challenge, and rewarded myself with the medal  (sign up for the 2021 challenge here).

The annual Is This Mutton survey, now in its 3rd year, couldn't ignore the impact of Covid-19 and how it impacted mid life women. I'm keen to find out how it affected your life, and what positives you found. 

The survey is open to women anywhere aged 45 and over. I'm using Google Forms because it doesn't limit the number of responses. and it's free.  SurveyMonkey would charge me an annual rate for this one-off survey, which, for a hobby blogger, isn't really viable!  I'm not capturing email addresses and you don't need a Google log-in to complete the survey. Responses are entirely anonymous.  I'd love it if you could forward it to any friends or relatives who might be interested too.  


The survey results will be shared in mid-January.
