Time really does go quickly, doesn’t it? This year it seems to have stood still but then when you look at the date, you realise it’s still moving, perhaps even more so than normal.
Like most people, I am assuming, we haven’t done much. My days have been spent trying to learn how to bake bread, studying Japanese, cooking new things, crafting and navigating the apartment now my husband is working from home (this is still an ongoing learning opportunity).
I’ve also been back and forth to the hospital with thyroid issues, specifically a toxic nodule goitre, causing me to ...
