Home for now!

First I would like to wish you all well, stay safe and look after each other.

Just want to say that everyone is well here for now and hoping we can keep it that way. I live with an elderly parent who has asthma/COPD a daughter with asthma and mental health issues and a husband who is diabetic. Me, I have no underlying health issues, except a tear in a tendon affecting my arm, which hurts but I can live with it.

Most of our neighbours are all self isolating due to age and health issues so I’m trying to do my bit by fetching essentials and medication. I’ve set up a Facebook group so everyone can keep in touch, one blessing is we all have decent gardens to get fresh air. I’ve also stated that its for positive news feeds and confidence boosts as there’s enough places to voice an opinion and spread negativity. I’m a positive person and like to keep people upbeat as much as possible, albeit it might get harder as time goes on.

Yesterday was hard as we always have a family gathering so again we’ve set up groups to have fun with video chats, although it got rather noisy with the youngest granddaughter yesterday. I think the youngest grandchild was more shocked to find that granny and granddad could use it never mind instigate it!!

I don’t think the garden is going to look anything like it has done for the past few years. it’ll still need keeping tidy but we’ll see what happens. The photographs are from last year, with different areas for different moods. My garden is my happy place, particularly this time of year when everything is starting to grow (not the weeds) and a nice place to relax when it’s warm and sunny.

I call this my Mediterranean corner, a quiet place to sit and relax.

I graduated in July after 3 years of juggling work, an elderly parent and a daughter returning home. Then there's a husband, a dog and two cats. I turned 60 in September, hectic, yes but I did it 😁.
