It’s Been A While…

30 Mar

I could grovel; or I could explain that I’ve been battling health issues for over a year, which is why this blog has been dormant. With all that’s happening in the world right now, I think I’ll just wave a nonchalant hand in the air and move on.

I will tell you this, though: in the last sixteen months the NHS saved my life and the sight in my right eye, and has dealt with sundry other issues – all for free. Trapped in the house (Hub and I are on a 12-week lockdown because we are both at risk, especially the Hub), I’m frustrated that I can’t help.

So here’s my offer: if ten people reading this make a donation to Masks For NHS Heroes, the Hub will shave me completely bald, and I’ll post the video here.

I know you are all battling for PPE in your own countries, so I’m aiming this at British readers.

Stay safe and well, lovelies, and I’ll see you on the other side x

    Sorry you’ve been ill and delighted you’re well now. I’ll donate to your cause even though I’m not in the UK because you’re right, they are heroes just like our HSE, but I won’t hold you to the baldness thing (I know you fancy Capt Picard, but still).
    Take care Tin x

    Three hundred cheers for the NHS! They saved my life a few years ago, too. Haircuts are difficult during a lockdown – shaving your head could be a solution! Welcome back and a big HUG!

      Thank you! Glad to hear they saved you!

      Good point about the haircut – if only I’d known two weeks before, I could have taken the £25 I spent on my hair and donated it to the NHS instead 😦

    Ages late, I am. Where does the time even go?

    I really hope that you are feeling, if not magnificent at least a whole lot better.

    And you are amazing!! It’s that simple!!


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
