Wow, what a year 2021 has been thus far. Covid Lockdown part two, my vaccination No. 2, coming to terms with post-stroke effects, easing of lockdown measures in (allegedly) 17 days time! Thank goodness for the mass vaccination programme, at the moment major % of the adult population have had both vaccination jabs. We’re told… Continue reading Starting over again!
Here in London, the sun is out, and though the temperature is in single digits, seeing the sun and sighting the early spring flowers blooming their socks off, I am feeling happier and more optimistic than I have felt for ages.
