19 positive thoughts on Covid-19

2024-04-28T16:27:09+01:00

Yes, we are in the throes of a global pandemic, but we've got to take precautions, do our best to stay safe and try to focus on the positives as panic isn't helping anyone!

We are all in this together!

2024-04-28T17:04:37+01:00

Coffee with a special friend this morning reminded me of something very important that I had let slide.  I tend to worry about things, big things, small things, and generally anything!  In the past year of being a mum, I've found all sorts of new things to worry about too, [...]
