Who would have thought that when I recorded my message this time last year, that 12 months on we would still be in the pandemic and we’d still be feeling the effects of that. 

I know I certainly didn’t. 

I don’t know about you, but I have found the last 12 months probably more difficult than 2020, especially when the government announced in January that schools were going to be closed and children would be back to home learning. I have to admit, I cried. I found it really difficult having my boys at home and working and feeling like I wasn’t doing my job or looking after my boys or helping them particularly well.

I’ve found the last 12 months really tough from a mental health point of view and I know others have too. It’s been an unprecedented time, something that we’ve never come across before. But what has struck me most in the past 12 months is people’s kindness and people’s understanding and sharing of that experience. We might not all be in the same boat but we have been in the same storm. Just the support networks that I’ve built over the past 12 months and before that have really helped me through. Also my clients have been fantastic and so understanding. I’m so lucky to work with so many lovely clients and lovely people. 

So, what I wanted to say this year is let’s be kind, let’s be kind to each other. Let’s be understanding. Let’s support each other as best we can because by doing that, I think we’ll all get through this and we’ll all go into 2022 stronger. 

Here’s hoping 2022 is better than 2021. 

So Happy Christmas everybody. Hope you have a great New Year as well and I’ll see you in 2022
