When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

Making The Best Of It.

Both myself and Keagan have been isolating since the middle of last week - a few days before the actual lockdown was enforced. We are doing this due to my health conditions putting me at risk. Fortunately, Keagan's boss knows our situation and was happy for Keagan to remain at home to shield me.

Keagan works within a large team in horse racing where most of the team are young, strong and fit. We were all concerned that Keagan could have become infected and brought it home to me if he continued to work. 

So the sensible decision was for Keagan to isolate with me to reduce our contact. While my family live literally at the end of my garden - our gardens meet and we have a gate between the two- we are, as advised, not mixing households. My friends and family are bringing supplies to our door. I am lucky that I do get to see my parents, but of course, we are being extra cautious and they leave supplies on the doorstep, knock the window and then leave our yard and stay outside and chat over the wall.

With this beautiful weather I am grateful for my large garden. Every morning and afternoon I am spending time enjoying the sunshine, reading or just sat watching Asher play. Keagan has also been coming up and the boys have been playing together.
 Like most people, we are staying in touch with everyone via the phone, messages and video calls.

I also wanted to let you all know I have been asked to a be a blog tour host for The Coffee Pot Book Club which is ran by Mary Anne Yarde - who is an award-winning, international best selling author. So over the coming months, I will be hosting various authors - posting about their books and interviews. Maybe you'll discover a new author to read!
Anyway stay safe everyone and take care. Zoe
