After a disturbed sleep last night, dreaming I was made redundant by my 86 year old Dad, and thinking my earplug was a pineapple lump (I did unfortunately try to eat it), I decided possibly the whole COVID 19 issue was having more of an impact on me than I had previously realised.
When we come out the other side of this I think Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig will be the winners. If I can’t focus I take a journey to that pantry I haven’t spring cleaned. All of 11 steps from my office. Two weeks ago I was walking an average of 30,000 steps a day. So I need to do 1,363 return trips daily to the pantry to achieve that. I’m about on target!

The good news is we have a third day in a row of reduced numbers of new COVID-19 cases. As the Prime Minister said, I am cautiously optimistic. A glass of wine is needed to celebrate – another trip to the pantry!!
