We have had a snowy day today in Yorkshire. It’s the most snow I have seen in a while. I took the opportunity to walk out in the snow and enjoyed taking some photos. We are fortunate to have a garden that I can go for a walk in. I am not wanting to walkContinue reading “The Next Chapter”
Happy New Year to you all. As I think about what I can achieve in 2021, I reflect on what 2020 brought into my life.

‘Christmas is Coming’! ‘It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas’. These are the songs that often echo in my head as I am wrapping presents and decorating the house leading up to Christmas. This year the songs that echo in my head are, ‘All I want for Christmas’ and ‘Driving home for Christmas’. IContinue reading “A Very Covid Christmas”

I complete this article on #BlackTuesday 2nd June 2020. My mind is so troubled and heart is so heavy with sadness of the death of George Flloyd and the handling of this case by the American Police and the American Government. Racism is rife in the 21st century and not just in America. A lot of the times it is hidden and subtle, making it difficult to prove it has happened. At a time like this we as human beings, no matter what colour, need to step up, question and make efforts to stop this horrible, sad and shocking crime. A crime that has gone on for far too long. If anger and sadness is not expressed, we will not be any further forward to supressing racism. There is never a reason to be racist. Racism has been discussed openly in our household. Acceptance of one another is a crucial quality we can instill in our children.
It’s been awhile since I published my last blog, I have drafted it in my head several times but in keeping with the constant change in advice we are getting about keeping safe, my thoughts were conflicting each other in my head too. I felt drained mentally and found it difficult to think clearly. IContinue reading “OPINIONS MATTER”
Good morning everyone. Thank you for visiting my blog page. This is my first blog written in the month of May. I started blogging about this pandemic as we went into lockdown at the end of March. A blog sharing my own thoughts and experiences. Blogging about this pandemic definitely wasn’t on my ‘to do’Continue reading “SEEKING THE INNER STRENGTH”
It has been a month since I started blogging about the pandemic. This is my 11th blog. Stay safe and take care
This blog is for all children whose lives are on pause as they experience this pandemic. They have moved from a generation who were seen as privileged to a generation whose childhood is now comparable to ‘war times’. A generation that will prove themselves to be resilient. A generation to be proud of.
It’s our first day back to home schooling and my husband has also returned to work after a well deserved Easter Break. An anxious time to be returning to work as a doctor. When he left the house, both daughters shouted out ‘Stay away from the Virus’! My daughter M aged 12, has online learningContinue reading “LEARNING A SKILL”
Hope you are all doing OK! In this blog I would like to tell you about myself. I was born in Malaysia and lived there till I was 19 years old. My ambition was to be a doctor from a very young age. I wanted to help people and make them better. I came fromContinue reading “A MIGRANT WORKER”
