Thank you as always for your support and understanding with the lack of posts lately we have been having technical issues with connecting to the internet. It has been so uplifting to know that I have been missed and thank you for your lovely emails and messages asking where I was.
All is well with us both, we are both keeping well and safe. Gerard has a compromised immune system due to the medication he takes, so is particularly careful in this current climate. At the moment there is no reported cases of Coronavirus yet on the Western Isles but as we all know this could change at any time.
We are keeping busy and enjoying many of our hobbies. It has been good to explore the copious amount of craft materials that we have. It has given us both a clearer idea of what is available and a list has been formed so that we can get on with a few things.
We are hoping that the weather will pick up a little so that we can make a start on so many of the jobs that need doing outside. We are going to start setting up the seeds in readiness for onward planting in our garden room. We stored all our outdoor plants out there over the winter and they have done so well. We love the rewards homegrown herbs and vegetables fresh from the garden, worth all the hard work.
We had prepared for this lockdown with lots of books and jigsaws so we have plenty to occupy our minds. Technology has become our new best friends and we have enjoyed daily contact with our daughters and grandchildren when the internet allows. Food hasn't been an issue as we had recently filled the freezer and restocked the store cupboard. If anything it has made us a little more frugal, making things last a little longer.
We are blessed with wonderful neighbours who keep in touch by telephone. The Church have whatsapp groups which are uplifting and last Sunday a service was done via a podcast which was such a joy.
In a World that is changing so fast all we can do is the best we can. Know my dear friends that you have all been in my thoughts and prayers. Take care and stay safe.
See you soon.
