We are nearing the end of 2020 and for many a relief to welcome in a new year and see the back of this one. The pandemic has dominated most of the year, along with it restrictions and so many deaths. The news channel for me has become unbearable, whilst technology has been a lifeline for keeping in touch with family. This new strain is not what we wanted and seems to be spreading like wildfire, there is no holding it back. But then we have been given HOPE and a lifeline with not one but two vaccines now available. I am hopeful that if we can ride out these next few months, the vaccine will be a great help. We have no real plans for the New Year, taking everything very slowly but it is with a renewed energy that we go into 2021 with HOPE that we will be strengthened by this horrific experience of 2020.
