My baby is seven and I pray he makes it to 27!

Last Monday Ru turned seven and we were able to celebrate much more than last year, but not to the full extend he wanted.

Still Quarantined…………

So I have counted 49 days since I was last in an office working! As I approach the 50th day, I am feeling it, the boys are feeling it, the whole of the team I manage are feeling. The only thing free to roam wildly, is my cat Inna. She is oblivious to what the household is experiencing as she comes and goes as she pleases, sleeps and eats her food. Ru however, is really beginning to struggle with the…
