    Hi @Bailey123 - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining, Gina. I haven't been anywhere for 8-9 weeks, but rarely get out anywhere. Sometimes I feel it's just the thought I can't go anywhere if I wanted, that conversely makes me want to go out! Thankfully due to the lovely weather we're still getting, I've been able to get out in my garden & greenhouse, which has helped such a lot. That, & my son & daughter-in-law live close by, so at least I get to see them, stood well back in the garden. :)

    The weather is a real blessing, it's beautiful.  Lots to get on with in the garden, & family have really helped us too. Couldnt get an online shop for 3 weeks at first, but all sorted now thankfully.  :)

    Hi, Adrian, good to hear from you. Its certainly a strain on your emotional wellbeing. I remain positive, & I have seen & reflected on so much more than I had time to do before. Getting the garden straight too. It's a big garden, & a lot of work. My daughter isnt interested in helping, & she is a full time job herself! But I do what I can. You sound busy? I think kids are a gift at keeping you positive & cheerful though, they say such funny things, & have a lovely way of looking at things, even in bad times. The latest government advice is very much aimed at some, but not all. It's a little disappointing, but I guess we just have to get on with it.

    Hi thank you for your kind welcome. My daughter loves music & dancing, & we do a little work out together, each day. She loves her iPads too, which have been a god send! She loves being with me, wherever we go. Shes a typical mommy's girl! 😊
