Coronavirus Update

To be totally honest this global crisis has affected me emotionally and mentally. There have been moments when I’ve felt overwhelmed as my daughter had to move out of her student digs overnight to a safer place and my son is stranded in Plymouth Uni as he is frightened he might be affected because he suffers with Asthma (he feels safer there).

However, I’ve sent them both a care package from their mum and a hand made card as well as cards to my family. I’ve sent educational books to my cousins little boys with boring times tables books but also a big book on how to Draw Disney characters.. including Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck! I included a handmade card with a dodgy looking bug on the front with a big bottom… and the title “Together we will kick this Bugs Butt!”

I have daily three o’clock chats with my neighbour over the fence while I have a cuppa and sit in the sunshine at my studio door. I’ve also moved table and chairs to the front garden where I can catch anyone walking their dog for a chat at lunchtime so they know they are not alone (we live in a village with lots of older people who like to walk their dog up the lane).
