Apparently this is Easter Monday. This is the day where the great british public get on with gardening and DIY….. this would have been easier fpr Helen and Ionagh if cats weren’t involved!

It is true to say that all days are just merging into each other now and keeping track of the days is getting harder.
Keely however has managed to keep up with 10k steps a day, help by her “in-laws” dog, and the continuing nice weather.

it is now notable that we are speaking to more of our patients who are beginning to suffer dental problems. Although we are very grateful for everyone’s understanding of the situation we (and the rest of the UK) is in – this is getting more and more frustrating for all involved.
All at the clinic are undergoing their own trials and tribulations and like the rest of the UK we are having good days and bad days. Anna is particularly missing her mum….. as she has not seen her since the lockdown, although we are very proud of her for finally learning to do all aspects of housework.

This morning Captain Thomas Moore, raised money for the NHS by completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday. He original aimed to raise £1000, but currently his total stands at £12.5million!
Despite the lockdown, Ionagh still attended her regular blood doning appointment at Raigmore hospital. One of the positive aspects of the lockdown is that blood stocks are currently at a good level, although this is due to regular operations being cancelled.
