Well folks, we are now getting acclimatised to our self isolation. I have become an accomplished baker, (Mary Berry, watch out), hairdresser, make-up artist, ( needs must), doctor/nurse, to our family, as well as chief cook and bottle washer, into the bargain!

We are realising the beauty of nature, in ways that we never noticed before. The different birds nesting in our garden and hedgerows, the beauty of the green fields, with the cows grazing contentedly, the wonder of the amazing sunsets, not forgetting the wonderful patience of our family, who run the many errands without complaint. Being very independent people, we find it hard to ask for help, but, help comes along in so many forms. Isn’t our God amazing!

Since the lock down started, I have seen my niece Ann and my sister-in-law Margaret, come to faith in Christ, so we know that our God is working in lives, despite everything that is going on in our world. He has promised that He will never leave us or forsake us, so remember keep trusting and praying because He is faithful!

When all this is over, I am open to offers, from all you ladies, or gents, who need a make-over, because I’m told that even an old gate looks better with a lick of paint on it!!
