Last week was full of emotion as we sail into uncharted waters. Hubby celebrated his birthday without seeing the children and grandchildren and of course the situation remained the same for Mothers day yesterday. My poor Bertie can't understand why we wont let him say hello to the rare person we see on our walks. But social distancing means the same for him.
Hubby has been a bit like Prince Charles who kept offering his hand before being reminded 'No Handshaking' by his aides. SEE HERE: https://youtu.be/QGU5XvzjwRE He will walk over and start chatting to people and I keep reminding him 6-7ft social distancing. Talk if you really need to but keep your distance.
My eldest daughter is struggling, she is the UK marketing manager for a hospital supplier. Her phone hasn't stopped ringing and of course she has the children at home and we can't help. We spoke to the boys telling them they need to be good and help around the house because mummy is helping to save lives by getting the right equipment to the hospitals that desperately need it.
This is when herbs and spices help so much, onion salt, garlic granules, cumin and season all. We've had one portion as soup and another a stew with some shredded chicken and mash potato.
My phone sprung into life early on Thursday. It was the British Blood team asking me to keep my appointment despite what was going on in the world. Blood donations went ahead on Thursday with a few additional safety tweaks to the normal routine. There was lots of Thank You's for your donation as the virus has people running for the hills.
I love some of the Memes etc that have done the rounds as a result of the Corona Virus.
