The Vera Lynn song, “We’ll meet again”, does really have resonance at this time with the Coronavirus backlash of not being able to meet those we love. I hope that there will come a time when this virus is vanguished and we can go about our daily lives as usual, except for the realisation that “there but for the grace of God, go I”.
Today, I sat down to write a short post about what it’s been like for us here at Blenheim Lodge and to encourage potential guests to the Lake District to come stay with us when this area is again open to visitors. To say that it’s been easy would be an untruth. To say that it’s been terrible would also be an untruth. In truth, it’s been a bit of both good and bad. Good, because it has given me time to write and to rest from 17.5 years of never ever really having any time to call my own. Bad, because it has meant a life of no income whatsoever – not even a penny – but with bills aplenty. The utilities companies never stop charging; ditto for the telephone company; a mortgage that steadily reduces one’s bank account, and, of course, the fact that food needs to be produced on the table and things wear out. However, we, I’m sure, cannot ever discount the peace that we enjoy in our country, the cleanliness of our water, the abundance of beauty on our doorsteps, and the fullness in our bellies. Mostly, we have our health still to enjoy and be thankful for.
I hope you will enjoy reading this and the post related to this one. Take care and God bless.
