    I’ve had lots of exciting stuff but I’ve also had a lot of negative headspace. Kinda wanted to talk to people here but I can’t see if it’s worth it. I miss you all so much.

    Afternoon! Sorry for the down time….. how are we all?
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    J and A are both off school/work poorly, so trying to do uni work while looking after them!

    Same area or are you hoping to move further afield?

    One of the villages surrounding the town we currently live in. I got him to look at the property details and he proclaimed it ‘too small’. Not sure he gets the concept of ‘downsizing’…..

    Anyway, today’s going to be more successful, I’m sure. How about your day? What plans have you got?

    Morning! Got the kids coming round to watch the tennis and have a BBQ this afternoon

    Currently sitting watching a Dolly Parton bio - I think she is an amazing woman who’s had an incredible career yet managed to stay true to who she is. I’m a bit in awe of her tbh. Who’s an icon in your eyes?

    I love Dolly. I think Noel Fitzpatrick is an absolute icon. I admire him so much.

    I love Noel Fitzpatrick! He's amazing!!!

    Rob Burrow is an icon. He never let his size stop him from playing against men twice his size, and how he faced MND inspired so many and showed so much courage.

    Morning! So, in case you missed it, it’s the Wimbledon’s Men’s Final (which I shall be watching) and the Euros final (which I shall NOT be watching) today. Will you be glued to the TV or hiding underneath your duvet?

    I watched a Gaelic football match between Galway and Donegal first. Galway won! Then I watched the Euro final. I was very disappointed for England. They played a good match.
