I have two aprons that I wear pretty much daily.
One is in my studio, it’s blue striped and covered in paint and dye. The other is at home and lives behind our kitchen door. It’s says the name of a well-known posh supermarket on (Carl got it when he was doing his fill in job a couple of years ago) and is a part of our family life.
These two aprons signify two different parts of my life and wearing them, reminds me what job and role I am currently doing – my home one means being home, fully a and my studio one means “chuff right off, I am BUSY”. I didn’t plan it like this, more fell into it – The home apron & The studio apron.
Years ago I heard to a radio programme about aprons, a young boy was expressing that to him “ when he saw Mummy or Daddy wearing an apron, it meant that “no one was going out” and that that it was time to rest, play, eat and be at home.
That did it and shortly after I began my apron-at-home-habit, as well as at the studio.
Adopt if you like, it works for me. Once a day at least I can look down, check my apron and remind myself what job I’m meant to be doing – refreshed, I continue.
