Before I start my blog. Its the 20th June!! We are half way through the year!! How did that happen? I suppose it has been a hateful year and we will all be glad to see the back of it.

08/04/2020 Apart from the book club, today has been a blur

I woke up this morning with a tight chest and a headache (so what is new). When I looked on Facebook a good friend of mine Tracy had put a post on saying she had been struggling a little bit and was asking if anyone wanted to join an online book club as the bookContinue reading “08/04/2020 Apart from the book club, today has been a blur”

Feeling battered and bruised

Today is day 9 of my quarantine, and I am feeling better, my cough was less aggressive overnight. I now feel battered and bruised, I feel breathless and my chest really hurts this morning. It is as if I have been kicked in the chest. I can take paracetamol for the pain and I canContinue reading “Feeling battered and bruised”

01/04/2020 My faith in humanity is confirmed

What a truly lovely bunch of people we all are. Over the past week I have witnessed how kind and compassionate people are. I have had messages every day from people I have known for years and from people I have never met. All of them wishing me well and showing genuine concern for me.Continue reading “01/04/2020 My faith in humanity is confirmed”

28/03/20 Boris, Disney, and coughing

Well it turns out I have something in common with Boris. Get well soon Boris and Matt. This disease does feel like a juggernaut relentlessly rumbling around the world in an unstoppable wave of destruction. The only way to beat this is to stay inside as much as you can. Reducing contact reduces the abilityContinue reading “28/03/20 Boris, Disney, and coughing”

So I thought I would share with you what I am planning for the year ahead. To be honest most of these plans I have started already, but I amContinue reading “What are my plans for next year?”

We all have a choice

I read a tweet this morning by Paul McGee (@TheSumoGuy) that invited us to make a choice today. We could choose to be grumpy about whatever was irritating us or getting in the way of our life, or choose to be grateful for what we have and what is around us. I was out walkingContinue reading “We all have a choice”

Is Spring in The Air?

What a fantastic morning it is this morning in East Yorkshire. After such a stormy few days, wondered to myself when I was taking the the dog out, is Spring in the air? The daffodils are blooming, there are buds on the trees, there is birdsong in the air and the sun is shining. ThereContinue reading “Is Spring in The Air?”

Thank you Foggy….I think

I have not felt great this week, it has been one of those weeks, where I have just felt out of sorts. Nothing I could really put my finger on, just a bit down on my self. I didn’t notice my mood until Thursday when I reached the bottom of my mood. This is oftenContinue reading “Thank you Foggy….I think”

A valuable week

December is a stressful month. It always seems busier and more frantic than any other time of the year. The pressure built up by the impending festivities, as I mentioned in a previous blog adds to the stress. This need to have the best time at Christmas, seems to hang over people for the wholeContinue reading “A valuable week”
