Life with Coronavirus

How quickly life changed.

Spring began with blue sky and sunshine while the world was riddled with disease, an unseen enemy. 

Wherever you are in the world we shared the same feelings - anxiety, frustration, missing the freedom we take so much for granted and hugs from family. 

Yet so many positives. My wonderful husband coped with continual burnt offerings as I couldn't concentrate, the safety of home and garden, a well stocked larder and, most of all, the incredible sacrifice being made by the front line workers here in the UK.

We have adapted to a new regime and even new words - 'lockdown' meant drinking in the pub after hours, and 'ramping up' somehow related to plasma!

The world has changed immeasurably in 3 short months but, in the middle of the misery, human nature shines.

Community spirit is thriving as more people shop locally, home baking has resumed and we appear to be re-appraising our priorities.

I wonder if, like me, you have wobbly days when you wonder if you'll ever hug your kids again. I'm humbled by the venerable words of our new National Hero, 100 year old Captain Tom, who tells us "tomorrow will be a good day; we will get through this and come out of it stronger more united and ready to face any challenge together!" In the meantime he seranades us with 'We'll never walk alone' A legend!

The Million Mask Challenge

To combat frustration at this crazy old world I decided to make facemasks for my friends and family. 

What I found was an amazing lady who is marshalling an entire team of sewers to make a MILLION facemasks for her local hospital.

Facial Hair Remover

Most women don't talk about facial hair! In fact, it's the sort of thing that's rarely mentioned even between the best of friends.
