Has the weather something to do with our mood?

Goodafternoon everybody!

At the moment we  cannot complain about it, it isn;t very warm, around 8-perhaps 10C, at daytime, but mostly we have sunshine periods, not too much wind, although there are sometimes some rainshowers, of course.
But on the whole, it isn;t yet very bad.
Nevertheless..... I am wondering.
I know that sometimes weather can play with our moods, but although we have rather bright weather(disregarding the fact, that it becomes dark already in the late afternoon, yak!), it seems that the lowering in temperature has effect on some husbands moods!!
Jan is very irritable the last week or so, any minor thing that happens, makes him fall out, I cannot say anything or he reacts not too nice, and as reaction to that, I also say sometimes things not in a nice tone, well, you know how that works.
But really, the most small thing can have this effect on him at the moment, so it is rather difficult to sail through his moods at the moment.
But I had a phonecall just two days ago with my friend Heidi and she has the same problem with her husband, LOL!
so we both wondered if the weather had something in it to cause it.
I know I sometimes can be picky on Jan, him being rather a stubborn person, not giving in quickly, I am keeping a watching eye on him, because I just worry and want him to feel good and as healthy as possible with his medical conditions.
Perhaps I am doing that at times too much, but good heaves, sometimes he can react at things, .............................................
I think everybody recognizes it, it happens to all of us at times I suppo, and it solves itself most of the times without problems, but you know, there are times that it is just too much and I feel like exploding ROFL!
Good, that's off my chest, it will not really help, but somehow it's feeling nice, hahaha. I think next week it is time for Heidi and me to meet, have a cup of coffee, talk about that problem, and all the things happened, and after that chat we both feel a LOT better. You just need sometimes someone to talk to, about anything that happenes in your life and Heidi and I have that kind of friendship.
I am lucky to have her as a friend.

Between all those irritation moments(giggle), it was also a rather nice week. I cannot mention anything really special that happened, but I managed to get quite some things done, that were already on my list for some time, mostly things in the house, a few little jobs in the garden, etc.
 I hope to be able to go shopping for my laptop next week, time is running a b it out now, for changing to windows 10.
It would be nice to have a laptop that will start withing 5 minutes or so(mine is taking around 15 minutes or even a bit more!) and where I can work again with my Photoshop elements program(hopefully it will work on windows 10, because it is already quite an old version, PSE 8).
I already have made our dinner, I've made cannelloni in bechamel and tomatoe sauce(the cannelloni are dried ones, that you can fill with minced meat or whatever you want, and they will cook in the oven in the sauce in about 20 minutes). I will make a simple sald to it from cucumber and tomatoe to it and for dessert we have stewed pears. We both love them and it is the season to buy and prepare them. It is easy, doesn;t take very much time.

My bottle gourd was delicious, and I still have enough left to make one or two more meals of it. Oh, last week I also made once stuffed peppers, which is also easy to make. So you see, I am busy also with cooking, I just love to have that oven again, it makes life easier. You can prepare a meal or part of it in advance and you just have to finish it in the oven in the evening.

The parakeets are coming back again too. First, some time during summer, we had just two or three visiting us, but nowadays there are sometimes 7 or 8 at a time! To it the tits(not always, but they do come) a lonely robin, lots of sparrows, it is sometimes real traffic in the garden. And there are also lots of pigeons and crows or perhaps jackdaws(is that a birdname?). That are the ones i donlt like too much, because the snatch away the food for the parakeets and others. I know, they also have to survive, but they sometimes scare away the little birds and I don;t like that. So at times I am like a guard, watching into the garden and when I see those pesty birds, i scare them away LOL. It is almost an impossible job, but helps a bit.

Good, that is it for now, I hope to soon type a blogpost on a new laptop, where everything will go much faster way. It also takes ages to start up my email, so that would be nice too to have a quicker upload of the program.
I wish you all a lovely week and that everybody stays safe( I saw the bushfires in California and Australia on the news, aweful!) and healthy!
Till next week.

Mostly a rather quiet week, hoorray!

Goodafternoon everybody!

We have rain at the moment, nt heavy, but dripping. Possible that in an hour or so it will be dry again.
Temperatures are still not really bad, around 12C, and at times there is some sunshine and then it all looks rather friendly.
Hope this will last for much longer, so that frost and snow stay away as long as possible LOL.

I don;t have too much to tell actually. It was a rather quiet week, and that was so nice to experince again hahaha.
here was only one day, Jan just did a bit too much and he felt that the evening!
I had warned him, but you know, hubbies tend at times not to listen to us.
Okay, next day he took it easy and he felt much better.
He can do little jobs every now and then now, but not for too long. I knw that irritates him, I think he feels a bit useless by it, but he just has to take care of himself after that operation and that takes time.
It will go better slowly, in a few weeks he wil be able to do much moore again.

Did you have a nice Halloween? We don't do anything about it, but I always go out in the evening in the garden to see if my friend Edna's is flying over and wave her a hello and goodbye LOL. This year she flew together with her daughter and that it was nice to see they both had a wonderful time in the air.
Tomorrow my friend Edna will have her birthday! If you have time post her a birthday wish on her blog. She will love that!
I did sent her a little birthdaypresent and card which by wonder arrived at time!
Sometimes the post does a good job too.

Have to go to the kitchen now to look at the meat I have on the gas. It is meat that has to stew for some time to get really tender. It is more a dish for Jan than for me, but that doesn't matter. I try to make different things during the week and once it is more to my taste and the other time more to Jan;s taste. And there are also things, of course, both of us like evenly.
May be there will be meat left over from today and then I think I wil make it into a one-pot thing. I have a bottle gourd, which I can dice up (or part of it), with some paprika, mushroom, onion, put that together in the oven for about 20 minutes, oh, may be even put some potatoes to it) and in the last 5 minutes I can add the meat to it and we have a delicious dinner. It isn;t much work, doesn't take too much time, what do you want more?

Good, that was it for today, hopefully I will have some more to tell about next week.
In the mean time i wish you a wonderful week.

It was a bit of strange week I dare say!

Goodafternoon everybody!

Our weather is still not really bad, although now it is changing and probably getting a bit colder later this week. There was some rain, but most annoying was the wind, which was at times stormy.
However it stills seems nice enough for some blooms to persevere, LOL.

The week started kind of well, Jan was doing fine, and I was happy about it, of course.
He even felt so well that he even tried a little outing to the market(he went there by tram) and had a nice stroll there. I think he did a bit too much, because he still has to be careful because of the wound(more the inside than outside, because that looks good).
That was on Wednesday, and at the same time i went to city centre to do some almost last Christmas shopping, which was rather succesfull. I was back home late afternoon and I felt my legs, pfffff!!
That evening I already saw that there was something not fine with Jan, nothing to really worry about, but he wasn;t feeling 100%.
I thought may be that it was because of his walk, that was a bit too long and straining perhaps.
Next morning he felt worse, he thought he might have strained a muscle the other day that caused the pain he felt.
Well, I went for a quick grocery shopping and coming home asked how Jan was. But I already saw it wasn;t very good and he told me the pain he had was more in the area of the kidney. Okay, I didn;t want to wait longer and because our doctor was mjust that week on holiday, I straight away called emergency from the hospital and asked what to do. I explained about Jan, that he he this surgery not long ago and with his medical background I worried too much to wait for a doctor. They said we could come over right away.
So we took a taxi and there the whole circus of tests and waiting started again.
After several hours also a number one doctor came by to examen Jan and wanted some more photo's and an echo too.
By that time jan had a painkiller, because he really had severe pains. That helped a bit. But it seemed Jan's pain and cause of it was a great mystery to the doctors, yes really!.
They didn;t know what to do, so at the end(we were there from 02.00 p.m. to 11.30 p.m., can you believe it?) they said there was no direct cause of medical urgence to keep him there, so we could go home. The pain was a bit less by the time, but still Jan wasn;t feeling really great.
Good we went home and hoped for the best. (they gave us however the advice, that if it came back or got worse or whatever we could come straight away to the emergency again).
Finally Jan did get some sleep during the night and next morning the pain was about 90% less and during the Friday vanished as in a miracle!
And nothing more during the weekend. so we were as much puzzled by it as the doctors!!! Perhaps all together Jan was perhaps right that it was a strained muscle or perhaps a nerve and by the painkiller he got it got "unlocked " again.
who knows????
We just hope this was the last of it and that we dont have to go back to emergency for a very long time!

I probably was so full of adreanaline from that long day in the hospital and all, that I got a burst of energy on Friday and did a lot of housekeeping jobs LOL!
I did a laundry, I made a soup for the evening, I cleaned the floor of the kitchen, cleaned the toilet, oh, vacuumed cleaned the house, and then I though it was enough and I sat down and almost didn;t move anymore the rest of the afternoon and evening, hahaha.

And so I ordered myself to keep it very easy on Saturday and also today, to reload myself again to have a good start on Monday again.
Yesterday evening I enjoyed watching the Strictly come Dancing on the BBC again. The couples that remain now are really getting fantastic and the show of yesterday was wonderful, it was the Halloween-special. Oh, I aways love the costumes and decors, the people responsible for that are real artists!

I am also looking around for a new laptop, I hope to find one next month without too much trouble. It will cost me a bit more money, but i decided I better buy a complete new one this time.  A new one will hopefully last a bit longer than a second hand one. And of course Jan also needs one with with the Windows 10. I still don;t know if we will buy the official windows 10 program and put it over the windows 7 on his laptop, or just buy a new one too. Or may be we can find a good second hand with windows 10 for a nice price.
That will be the project for next month, among other things.

I also made a very quick visit to heidi and her hubby Danny this week, just to see how he was doing after his operation. Happy to say, that went well and he just has to recover now. It will not take all too long.

Good, I don;t think  have more to ramble about today, so I better finish this post.
Time to have a cup of tea and sit down some more(LOL), and later I will have to hang out the food for our birds, some apple pieces for the parakeets and also some small portions of peanuts in a little net, and of course some seed for the sparrows and tits(but also the parakeets like it, the raskals!).
And sometimes, when I look out of the window,  suddenly see a little mouse, enjoying some of the seed the birds spread around. He is so cute. And he stays cute as long as he stays outside!

I wish you all a wonderful week to come, to you who celebrate Halloween: stay calm and have lots of fun, and to all of you, stay safe and healthy, please.
Till next week!

All is going well till now!

Goodafternoon everybody!

We´ve had some colder weather, quite some rain, still all together not so bad for the time of year. And I saw on the weather report that next week we might even reach temperatures around 17C, with almost no wind and quite some periods with sunshine! That would be good, because then it would be much more agreable for Jan to go out.
And he has to, to gain some condition and to get his muscles working again, and it also is good for the bloodcirculation. specially in his underleg and feet.

Last Tuesday Jan's brother Rob, came by to do some little jobs in the house.
He would come around 1 o'clock p.m., because first he had to buy a ramp for the shower in a shop not far from our house.
I had the idea, that when Rob would be busy, I could go out to do some shopping or whatever. The day before Jan and I already prepaired as much as possible the tools and such so Rob (or Jan ) could start working without loosing much time searching for things.
But..... it ended in me helping Rob with some of the jobs LOL!
Well, obvious Jan couldnl't do that(he isn;t yet allowed to lift things or sit on his knees, bending too much etc).
So I helped Rob in holding things in it's place, getting the right screws, and more. But.... lots of the things needed, were done. Most important was the ramp in the showerIspecially for Jan at the moment). Then there was needed a kiind of shelf in the kitchen on the place where we had the dishwasher. Now we just need to find a small cupboard, that will fit there.
And there was needed a new piece of wood on the kitchen door outside. Actually we should replace that door, but for the moment this is good enough( a new door could be rather expensive!). Now it needs a coat of paint and it will do fine for the winter.
well, it sounds all not much but it takes all time to do. I am glad Rob could help us with the jobs.
After my not intended help in carpenting and so, hahahaha, I was happy to sit down in the evening on the couch and I went to bed earlier than usual!

This week Heidi's husband had to go to hospital for an operation on Thursday, not all too serious, he only had to stay over for one night and came home again Friday afternoon.
The Friday morning Jan and I went to hospital in the morning to have his staples removed. Well, that went sooooo quick, all the visit and removing didn;t last more than about 15 minutes! Gosh, never thought it would go that quick, because normally there always is a waiting time for the appointment. Not this time.
The cicatrice looked well, and has no need of an adhesive plaster anymore.
The nurse only put on some small pieces of plaster, just to kind of strengthen the adhesion.
Jan still will have to carry cummerbund(is this the right word) for about 4 more weeks. At least during the day, he can remove it in the evening when he doesn;t move too much anymore and during the night.
And then we'll have to wait for about 3 months, when he will have his next appointment with an echo.

This week Jan planted even some more bulbs in containers. He did sit down on a little stool, and the containmers where at about the same hight, so it was something he could do, although slowly and careful.
Now hoping we will have three of four containers next spring with a selection of tulips and one container has daffodils. 

So all together with some grocerie shopping and a market visit for some fruit and cheese and veggies, it was a filled week. And yesterday I finally made us again a Boeuf Parmentier(kind of Sheperds Pie), because now I could prepare it and heat it up in the oven, yeah!!!
we had it yesterday evening for dinner with a bit of salad and for desert I made us the first stew pears of the year again. It all tasted really good and I have an easy task today for dinner. Yes, you might have guessed, we have the Boeuf Parmentier again and the stew pears. Wonderful, LOL.

Hmmmm, I think it is time I get myself a cup of tea(or may be a coffee. I don;t know yet), I am getting thirsty a bit.
I hope you all will have a wonderful week to come, with not too bad weather and lots of moments you can smile about.
stay safe and healthy!

Slowly coming into sort of normal rythm again

Good afternoon everybody!

So far, so good. as you know Jan came home Saturday a week ago and till now, it seems to go rather well.
Of course he cannot do much, has to be careful not to put much strain or strength on his belly.
But he seems not to have lot of pain of the wound, only if he has to sit down or come up, that sort of thing, or reach for a mug on the table, he has to do that carefully and slow and then he feels it.
He has an elastic bandage around the waist and belly, to give more support there and he still have to use that for some more time. Only in the evening he takes it off, when it really starts to bother.
Last wednesday we both went to out doctor across the street and Jan could walk that distance without much trouble. We went there to get our flu shot.
Gosh, I think the doctor hit perhaps a muscle in the arm or so, because the place where i had the injection, still is hurting when I touch it or lie on it.
I will tell him to do better next time LOL!

Then Thursday morning we had to go to hospital for a control appointment for Jan with the surgeon. Oh my, we pensionados aren+t used anymore to get up very early, you know and we hadn to be there at 8.30 p.m. so get our of bed at about 07.00 p.m. to be able to get dressed and have a cup of tea and such not in a hurry. We went with the tram, yes, lucky Jan could sit sduring the ride, and then he walked all the way from the tramstop to the hospital and the the department. Quite a distance for him now, but it went well.
Wound looked good, we only have to put on an adhesive plaster every two days, as long as there is some wound fluid. Today it already was almost dry, so to be sure, I put on another adhesive plaster.
Coming Friday we will have to go to hospital again, to have the staples removed)yes, first time they closed the wound with thread, second time with staples too). Hope that goes without too much problems, and then, when all goes well, Jan has to return after 3 months for a control. Then they will make again an echo to see if all hold well and works okay.

It is a pity, that the weatherr isn;t really good now, it isn't really cold, but we have wind and lots of rainshowers, so not the best condition for Jan to go out and try to have a little walk. It would be good for him to do it, and build up again some condition. It doesn;t matter if it is colder, but at least it should be dry, if possible with a bit of sunshine and not so much wind.
However today, the temperatures were realy nice, around 19-20C so Jan did a little of work in the garden(with my supervising eye and help for lifting things!!!).
He placed some flower bulbs in two different containers, cleaned out a few smaller pots with plants that were finished, and after half an hour he he enough of it. He was a bit tired and I understood him completely.
Still it was a start and he has to build up from this to more.

This week his brother came for a visit and Jan asked him if he could help with some smal jobs in the house, that at the moment Jan cannot do(and me neither). That was no problem. so he will come on Tuesday to do it.
Most important thing is a handrail in our shower! It is a lot safer, when you can hold yourself and also for stepping in and out.
Specially now for Jan, but also in future. And there is some carpenter work to do also for Rob(Jan's brother).
And I want to ask him to come by another time, perhaps next week, to do some jobs in the garden. There is a bush, that has to go, but for me it is far to heavy to dig it out, here is needed some manpower, really.
And there are some smaller jobs to do in the garden that are also for me at the moment too straining and difficult. So I would be happy with the help of Rob.

That;s about it for this week, we both slowly come to a sort of relaxing and catching up some sleep. And I am happy with that.
Thanks all for your thoughts and prayers lately!
stay safe and healthy as much as possible, and till next week!

Another hectic week!

Good afternoon everybody!

Weather here at the moment, rainy, windy and not very warm.
during next week temperatures could rise again a little bit up to 14-15 C, and with a bit more sunshine. It definately is getting into Autumn weather.

Well, you know about Jan having to go to hospital. (thanks to everyone with good well wishes!).A little as a surprise he could go home again last Wednesday. The wound looked good, almost dry, so medical wise it was okay to go home the doctor said. I wasn;t all too happy about it, though it might be just a wee buit too soon, but nothing to do about it.
It went rather well Wednesday evening, next day too. of course Jan feels the wound when moving, and he is very tired, but he had something to eat several times(little portions to start with), he has to regain strength again.
Thursday evening we had small dinner, and then when just finished around 18.00 a.m. Jan looked at his dressing gown and it had at several places a very strange color and it felt wet.
So we looked further and at the wound with adhesive plaster and that was all red and tearing it off at the bottom of it blood. Oh dear, the wound was leaking!
First I dried it as much as I could but it kept leaking. I could the hospital first, and they said well, come over to us. But How? I have no car and I wasn't sure if a taxi driver would take us, but they wouldn;t send an ambulance.
All stressed up I called my friend Heidi and asked if her husband Danny could bring us to hospital. In 15 minutes they were there and off to hospital ER.
(I had a sheet of plastic I layed over the seats in the car).
To make it short, Heidi stayed with me till about 19.45, then she had to go, because she had to go somewhere with her daughter.
It all took till 1.30 at night till Jan finally was brought to a ward! He was completely worn out, but I was too!
Next morning they operated him again, and it seemed that in "stitching him together, they missed a little part, that opened again caused a hematome and that started leaking. How nice!
After operation I went to hospital at about 1.30 a.m., and Jan was already awake(well, more or less LOL). We wanted to know if he had to stay for another night, of course, it took till 7.20 a.m. that a doctor decided it was better he stayed another night.
Yesterday he could come home, after still long waiting for the decision! we were home at about 18.00 a.m.
Hopefully now it will all go well and heal as it should do etc.
The worst of all is the endless waiting you have to do before you get any results or answers. I know, it is very busy in a hospital, and the doctors have many patients, but there must be a possibility to cut the waiting times? I think it does no good to the patient as well as relatives. Very stressing.

But okay, we are home again. Jan cannot move around a lot, of course and has to be careful not to put too much pressure on his belly.
So this morning I helped him to take a shower, I felt better to be next to him, to avoid any problems.
He tries to do as much as possible himself, but I don;t want him to move around too much yet( he has to move every now and then, but by little bits), so I am very busy with all those little things, like bringing him something to drink, helping him to put his socks on,making him a sandwich, and lots more things you normally don;t do. Rather time consuming, but it will only be for some days and then he already will be able to do a bit more himself.
As long as he heals well, it is all okay for me!

You can imagine I didn't have much time to do anything else this week, than gooing to and from hospital, and actually running around like a headless chicken ROFL!. It wasn;t one of the best weeks of the year, I can tell you that.

Now I will finish the post, hopefully next week there will be some lighter news to tell. I have a luandry turning in the washing machine, that is almost ready. I will hang that out, then I will have a little time to sit down to watch some tv or do a little game on the computer and then I will have to make us some dinner. Time is running out very fast today.
Have a wonderful week to come, stay safe and healthy.

Shocking week!

Good afternoon everybody!

To start with the weather, it is raining now with lots of wind, although the temperatures aren't too bad yet. But they will drop from now around 17-18 to 14-15C later this week. It really is getting into autumn-weather.

Where to start? The week started quiete good, quiet, some plans in the head to do, all quite as usual.
Wednesday evening I already noticed that Jan wasn't all 100% himself. He also didn;t have much appetite in the evening, I asked him why, he answered that he had some tummy trouble. Okay, that can happen. But it got worse, he really hurt when having tose "stitches", so I said he needed a doctor. He wanted to wait till morning so I could call our doctor. But it got still worse, he vomited also, so I called the SMASh(night emergency doctor's post). First they asked if we could come to the doctor's post(in a hospital rather far away from us), but I refused. Jan was in no comdition, to get into a taxi.
So the night doctor came to us. Couldn't find right away a cause, gave him a kind of painkiller and medicin against feeling sick and vomiting.
Urged us to call our doctor in the morning. You can imagine we didn;t have a good night, specially Jan not, the poor soul.
Next morning I right away called our doctor. Explained it all to the assistent and urged her to send the docor over as soon as he could. He came around midday, and called for an ambulance, because he didnlt know exactly what the cause was, but said Jan was a fragile patient, so better take no risk.
On to hospital emergency. We were there for about 4 hourse at least, Jan had all kind of tests and scans. They couldn;t see anything causing those pains in the belly. Gave us the choice to stay in hospital ro going home. ou shouldn;t give people that kind of coice, I think,. but okay, there was no direct medical reason to keep him there. He got however the advice, that if it got again worse, we should call directly to the ER of the hospital and we would be fetched by ambulance.
I wasn;t happy with it, but Jan wanted to go home and see how it went.
For a bit early evening it seemed to go slightly better, but already soon it all came back and even worse. So at about 5 o'clock night I called the ER.
Explained, and asked for ambulance to pick us up. Then I got the answer that they couldn;t send it, but I had to call for the 112(emergency phonenumber for police, ambulance and firefighters). Strange, but okay, I did so. ecplained and there they said the hospital probably could send the ambulance. All very confusing but after half an hour there suddenly was the ambulance.
Then the whole circus started again with all kind of tests and scans(in the meantime, Jan got some painkillers, so it didn;t hurt that much). Becaue of his diminished liver function and slight kidney problems he cannot have all painkillers, but they knew that.
After a long session of tests and waiting, I think we were there busy for about 6 hours, finally they stumbled onto something.
I try to tell it all as short as possible, which isnt easy, sorry.
At last there came a specialist Jan knows from earlier stay in hospital and he told him that they seemd to see on the scan, that 3 bloodvessels, going to the intenstins, were smaller(partly blocked) and therefor the intestins didnt get enough oxygen rich blood causing in longer terms mortifying of the intestins, and at first possibility of getting into a knot. And that causing hose pain-stitches Jan felt.
Two options: doing nothing, he would die, very soon or in short time.
Second option: an operation right away, with no garantee of succes, that was all depending on the situation of the intestins, that they only could see and know when opening the belly and taking a look.
Quite shocking, isn;t it?? We never could have thought of this to happen.
Well, there wasn;t much to argue, Jan decided he wanted the operation.
Then after may be 10 minutes came the surgeon who would do the operation, explaining us what they would do. As they already were operatinm they would place some stents into the vains leading to the intestins, so the blood could run freely and well again. And then they would see how the condition of the intestins was, if there was a knot in them or not, and if there was any kind of mortification to see or not.
Jan was in the operation room wihin an hour I believe.!!

I was a bit in a stress, you could say! About just two years ago I had almost the same situation, that time when Jan's kidneys had to had to be brought back to life again. He could die or he would survive. Well, that time he survived.
Now it was about the same. Quite a tricky operation, (specially because Jan was already having a fragile liver and also kidneys and all together it made it more tricky)with no knowledge of the outcome till the had opened the belly and even then, or just die.
Pffffffff, not the thing you are waiting for on a Friday!(or any day of the week)
I right away called Heidi, I just needed some support. She came right away, I think within 15 minutes she was there, and she just could see Jan for a minute and wish him well, before he went to the operation room.
Then I just had to wait. After Heidi and I (and also Séverine came over, so sweet)had a cup of coffe I decided just to go home and wait there.
 At about 5 o'clock a.m the surgeon called me to tell the operation went well, there seemd to be no dammage, they placed the stents into the vains and that worked really well. Of course we still had to wait how all would settle again,  but he was moderate optimistic.
Tonnes of weight fell of my shoulders!

I visited Jan Yesterday afternoon and of course he was terribly tired, but that didn;t matter. He still wss there! I saw the belly and I think he has quite a scar there, but that can heal. It will all take time, but that doesn't matter too much.
Gosh, I was soooo happy to be able to give him a little kiss and look into his eyes and hold his hand!!!!
In an hour or two I will go to the hospital again and see how he is feeling today. We just will have to take it day by day, won;t we?
Good, that was our week.

I will finish now, I think my laundy it just about ready, so I can hand it out, before it is time to go to Jan.
Please stay safe and look after yourselves and your loved ones. Life sometimes has nasty tricks up it's sleeves!
