I cannot quite put my finger on why it has taken me so long to post this, I feel like I am in a kind of mourning for normality! Hardly surprising given the circumstances. I do know that I have had to wrestle with the idea that I am currently unable to drive to Sandown and throw myself in that delightful briny. But there are people going through far FAR worse than I am and although I am unable to volunteer I can at least do as asked and stay at home and thankfully have some wonderful friends and neighbours.
