Just a wee note for readers that my mind and focus at the moment is on family matters.
It may take longer than usual to get back to emails and messages. I am reading them though so don’t stop sending them.
I’d like to thank my friends for their help and support especially in relation to the blog helping me collate, manage and publish posts over the past few days and for the days ahead when things are going to be a bit tougher. It means I can concentrate on supporting Dad at this time. I appreciate it immensely and I am so grateful I have caring friends like I do.
