With my first cup of coffee in bed I watched the photos of my grandchildren from Canada. They grow up so quickly and I realise I really miss them. Regular Whatsapp video calls are good. But play and tickle and Maya-the-Bee or aeroplane does not happen over Whatsapp video. I have two more grandchildren about 5oo meters up the street. With lockdown and the mutual responsibility to keep other safe, they could also be in another country. I miss them as much!

In this time of the virus, I have trouble not considering the economy. Sometimes I am not sure what is worse – the health effects of the virus or the effect on the world economy? There is a lot of discussion going on about the virus. We can discuss the economy post virus and how we want it to be as well!

I have never believed that should be just because it is!
