#keepbritaintalking

Morning all,

How are we doing in lock down? Chipping away at the days here, enjoying the extra time to write. I think its so important for those of us staying at home to keep busy with some form of hobby. Otherwise its so easy to get stuck in a downward spiral of worry. We need to keep our brains busy with something constructive in times like these. On a similar note: talking is so vital right now.

Shattered. Anxiety. Bees.

Hi all,

Well the title says it all. I’m knackered. So much has gone on with the COVID-19 virus, and with all of the stress, worry and general anxiety it’s taking its toll. The problems aren’t too bad, they are just as I mentioned in my last post: tender stomach and tiredness. I can cope with it. On a cheerier note: saw this bee the other day. Tom likes bees.
