Anyone else feeling vulnerable?

COVID-19, the Coronavirus…that’s all anyone is talking about. We are inundated with information. Unfortunately not all of it is true. And what’s worse is some people are panicking which isn’t helping and others aren’t taking it seriously at all. I went out today to pick up some much needed groceries. It’s always a bigger task…

Where do I go from here?

Last Saturday, my beautiful daughter got married. Despite the teaming rain, it was the most spectacular day I can remember. She was so happy and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. The wedding has been my focus for over a year. It has given me something positive to look forward to and to work…
