    Post-cancer treatment confinement crisis- the three C’s

    It’s not that bad, I’m not about to go out and buy myself a sportscar or take up with a twenty year-old.  However, post-cancer treatment combined with Coronavirus lockdown has definitely given me itchy feet.  My google maps timeline has shown me that I have travelled a total of one kilometre for the whole of May, and only one kilometre further in April, when I was staying at a friends’ chalet.  It has become the new normal for all of us.  We have become hermits, not by design and not by choice, but by the needs of the world.  You do get used to it, and not having to be…

    My appeal to you

    Take a breath, take a pause.  What am I talking about? That what is to come. Any day now, social media will be awash with ‘f%*k you 2020’, ‘glad to see the back of you 2020’ type thoughts. Take a breath, take a pause. I think we can all agree that 2020 has not been the best.  There have been emotional and mental health struggles.  There are people hanging in there financially on a wing and a prayer. Take a breath, take a pause.  Please, before we all get caught up in the negative cycle that social media and media in general is about launch. This has not been the…
