Do you know what I am loving right now? The remote love, support, guidance and motivation not forgetting the endless videos, tags, nonsense and downright silly behaviour. We are all doing what we can when we can, if we can. Words and phrases I won’t miss - we are living in unprecedented times, when this is all over, lock down, social distancing, what can I eat, what time is it, what day is it.
