Lockdown & Mental Health

For those of you who, like myself, struggle with your mental health, the current situation is extra stressful. I can’t use either of the ‘C’ words or even the ‘P’ word that’s used in the news – not that I watch that either – and I am sure I’m not the only one. So, if you are among this not so merry band, why don’t you share with me what you are doing to try and keep your spirits up or keep yourself distracted.

I’m currently drumming up enthusiasm for my veggie patch. I have planted some seeds in pots and the first glimmer of pea plants have appeared.  I had bought myself a soothing water feature, but it’s already had a bit of an accident, so is temporarily out of commission.


I have been asked to provide some new photos of myself for a magazine article I may have hinted at previously. This is one of my favourites:


I think Kizzy was mid yawn there, although she can stick her tongue out on demand which is fun. Hopefully, I will soon be able to share this exciting article with you. I may not be able to do live readings like many authors are using to reach people at the moment, and the events my PA was going to on my behalf have been cancelled, but approaching magazines is a good alternative right now. And, of course, if you could share my blog with your friends, you would be helping me too.

Take care now, and stay safe.
