I'm lucky to be still alive after surviving a Spontaneous coronary artery dissection three years ago.
I'm not well off by a long shot or retired. I have a mortgage, don't know if I'll have a job to go to if this carries on. But it did put things into perspective for me and this covid situation isnt worth losing your mind over that's for sure.

Not watching the News everyday has certainly done me good. Once a fortnight is about right I reckon. The missus said a couple of weeks ago ..... “ you’re always in a grumpy mood after you’ve watched the news do you know that ? “ She was right.
Hello Mick, I stopped buying newspapers some time ago. Even the missis has stopped buying her Saturday mail, I know it sounds
a bit head in the sand but if I don`t know about it I wont get annoyed about it, just the same with the news, check it once a day and
once a day is enough.

I couldn't agree more with your sentiment about enjoying the simple thing in life, just wish we could apply the brakes sometimes and really appreciate what we have. God, I'm starting to sound like an old timer, can I please apply to become your apprentice PG?
Mind you it`s a lot easier to switch off in the warmer months.

I 'Totally' agree with your positive thinking Bob, You're a credit to our forum....:)

I'm on meds myself for my mental well being. Being a carer for our special needs twins (34 years old) takes it out of oneself, but you got keep going....Things will get better and so looking forward to wetting a line again in the near future...;):)

One job which I keep meaning to do is sort out photos on the computer. Must have 20 years of CDs, memory cards, stuff on phones etc.

Time consuming, but would remind you of good times, and look forward to when all this is over.

Apologies- but you may be super organised and already done this....

Just an idea

Take care & all the best
