Where do I start?
Here I am, coming out of a lengthy period of silence on the old ‘saying things’ front, but – due to the fact that this is the maddest time since Mad Maddy McMadderson went a bit mad singing madrigals – I genuinely do not know what to say.
It’s all too big, and incomprehensible, and unknowable, and unfathomable, and there are zillions of things to say that all make up this gargantuan ballsack of a situation in which we all find ourselves, so while I get my thoughts together and decide what I want to say, I’ll leave you with a heartwarming story of my inaugural attempt to assist the elderly through this insane time:
I was in the Pound Shop yesterday not being able to buy toilet roll, when I saw a little old lady with an empty shopping basket poking through some boxes on a trolley full of stock.
All my heart strings pulling at once, I rushed to her and asked her if she needed any help finding something.
The little old lady immediately flushed pink, and started mumbling ‘Oh, er… um… erm…’, and she looked so troubled at being spoken to that I thought to myself, Wait a moment, have I just caught you trying to nick stuff, you sly little madam? and I was about to step away and tell her not to worry, such was the extent of her discomfort, when she finally gave up fumbling for words, dropped her shoulders, looked utterly pissed off, and said:
There’s no helping some people.
Big love to everyone x

Haha! It’s good to see you blogging again (even though the circumstances aren’t ideal).
It’s good to BE blogging again! And if I can’t say things about a pandemic, when CAN I say thing??
I hope you’re well! 🙂
Hi Becky, We need more! Self isolation (or insulation as my 10 year old nephew declared) is ballsacks indeed. It is your job to help us settle into domestic bliss and it is all on you. Get scribbling ☺️ Please! But don’t share your pencils. Stay safe xxx Lizzie

Ah thanks Lizzy, for such lovely words! I shall accept the challenge of scribbling! And I certainly won’t be sharing my pencils, that’s a sure way of being infected. Hope you’re okay my love xx
Keep saying things! I’ve missed you. And you hit it spot on. Unfathomable. Old lady story was just icing on the cake.
Thank you! The old lady story did make me smile, trust me to get the one old person who didn’t want any help.
Stay healthy xx
