Stay safe, be happy, look after yourself

The world is slowly adapting to what is to become the new normal… at least for now. Most countries have put procedures in place, new rules and regulations which many deem as restrictive. Whilst we may or may not agree with the actions and the speed of which these are implemented, only time will tell if they are useful and necessary.

Whilst many are to stay indoors, away from others, with measures for social distancing, there are those who are carrying on vital work for their communities. If you are able to help others at this time, then your efforts will truly be appreciated.

What can we do…

Some simple things we can all do include:

⭐Picking up the phone: Call or video call friends & family.

⭐Write a note/letter: Just to say hello or to give a phone number in case help is needed.

⭐Donate to a food bank: Many people are lacking essentials as people are stockpiling. Search for your local branch and see what they need.

⭐Forward (and use) virtual resources using ideas from museum and gallery tours. For example, The British Museum has fantastic resources along with audio – great for learning new facts and keeping your brain sharp! Even the Opera has online performances which you can watch from the comfort of your own home.

⭐Follow the advice given by your own authorities.

Whatever you do, keep communicating with each other! Feel free to drop me a line below in the comments ⬇️

Stay safe, keep calm, be positive.

    Wise words, Laurena. I’m ashamed to say I didn’t consider if there were any food banks in my region, I shall have to do my research – what a great idea. Happy UK Mothering Sunday, by the way☺

      Thank you Eva. Our foodbanks are having a worse time than usual as everyone has been panic buying and emptied all the shops! Like actually emptied them! It will certainly be a different Mothering Sunday that’s for sure! No restaurants open to have lunch in, and not able to visit Mum in person. Hopefully the boys will have made a new plan!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend – I’m currently watching Opera (La Fille du Regiment) 😀 xxx

    Duh, of course- I must’ve temporarily forgotten about the lockdown for a few seconds! Can your Mum use Skype or FaceTime etc? Yes, it will be very different this year for sure. Enjoy La Fille du Regiment (the online performances are such a good idea). I think my favourite opera is Carmen💃
