📅 Thought for today:
‘Cherish your human connections–your relationships with friends and family.’

For the first time in 18 months, both of our boys are home for the weekend.
They are both grown up and live their own lives (in Cardiff and Manchester).
This is the longest we have ever gone without seeing them together as a family.
This has been the hardest part of the whole pandemic saga, so you can imagine I am full of anticipation for this weekend.
Whilst my working practice has adapted to online working, friends and family need to face to face meetings and physical contact, whether a hug, a kiss, a handshake or a pat on the shoulder.
I also caught up this week with one of my best friends, my study buddy, and it was so uplifting to spend a few hours chatting away with her.
As I shake off the fug and anxiety of re-entering public spaces, these are the reminders I need of the value of human connections.
Have a great weekend.
