How is everyone doing? After quite a few weeks at home I have most definitely experienced the whole gamut of emotions. I have felt anxious about lots of different things: what kind of reaction will I and people close to me have if we catch the virus? Will we be the lucky ones with mild… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Emotions
Hi all I hope you are all well. I haven’t posted anything for AGES. Lots been going on here – some significant things (had another baby.
