Hello everyone, I hope I find you all well today. Im sitting here waiting patiently waiting for the delivery of handles so I can complete the project Ive been working on. Im hoping you’ll like it as much as I do.

The weather is beautiful here today so I’ll be going for a swim soon to our local outdoor heated pool, its such a treat! When I go to places like the pool or the lake, or even just a walk I have to remind myself of others who are not so lucky to have these beautiful surroundings. But its buzzing here with tourists right now and it is lovely seeing the smiling faces of the children, and their parents too, who are enjoying their surroundings and managing to spend family time together making memories. Everyone seems happy and grateful for what they have but you just don’t know what’s going on in peoples lives do you? Theres been a lot of talk lately on depression and how to handle it, and show support for those suffering. Theres that saying “keep smiling and carry on”, and yes it is lovely to see those smiles but to anyone who is going through this I say to you, speak to someone about it. You don’t have to put on a brave face. You are loved, you are valued, no one wants you to suffer in silence so speak to someone, anyone, but smile because you are dealing with it. I think life is so much harder now, or at least more complicated and Covid has made things so much harder. I moved to the Lakes for a slower pace of life, the less complicated your life is the easier it becomes and I can now care for my family and myself more. Its true the simple things in life can bring so much joy and are free… a simple stroll outside, breathing deeply and some ‘me time’. Start smiling because you are happy on the inside too.

Well Thankyou so much for joining me today.

Bye for now, Gillian x
