So – end of week 1 of our second lockdown. For the likes of me, not so bad. The restrictions are relatively minor, compared to the potential good. But. For many many others, really really hard. Imagine being at home … Continue reading

It’s the weekend, different rules apply. An enjoyable relaxed time, especially after that announcement yesterday afternoon. Not a moment too soon. Concerned about what happens next, but let’s allow ourselves some time to bask in the knowledge that one particular … Continue reading
