Well, what a strange Easter this is going to be for us all.
Ironic isn’t it that the weather has turned up trumps, when often Easter heralds the return of cold and miserable weather? I hope some of you will be able to spend time in your own lovely gardens!
I know we are a forum of sensible, mature people and that none of us will be daft and dangerous enough to be thinking of going out unnecessarily, but I wish the minority who can’t seem to get the message, would stop endangering us all by insisting on breaking the law for their own selfish pleasures.
Despite all the challenges, I’d like to wish you, and those you so tirelessly care for, as pleasant a weekend as you can manage. It might take some ingenuity, and swallowing some disappointments, but it’s all in a good cause.
Does anyone have any idea how they will cope with the weekend? I’m planning on doing a bit more cooking than usual; perhaps something a bit more challenging, to take up some time, to make us a special meal at least. And I’m blessed that my husband is rostered off duty until Monday night, so I have some company. Is anyone else planning on cooking a special Easter meal?
I’d just like to give a heartfelt hug to those of you who have loved ones in residential care homes during this crisis. It’a a heartache not being able to be with them, and sad for those who can’t understand why all of this is necessary. And to all who are caring at home, I hope you’ll be able to find a few minutes at least of pleasure for yourselves.
Whatever it is that you do to pass your time this weekend, I hope that you are still all managing to remain positive, and as safe and well as you can, and a very happy Easter to you all. 🙏
