Shani’s Lockdown Diary – 13th April – The Only One in the World

I woke up this morning to find a link from my girls of a new video they have made!  Many of you may know that our youngest daughter, Tália, has mitochondrial disease.  Well, the girls decided to make a fun video to introduce Tália to the world. For those of you have seen our videos you will have seen Tália’s head popping in from time to time or actually, more likely a foot or arm!!!  Anyway – I thought I would share it with you! It is a very stripped back version and really does show Tália in a true light.  I am really proud of my girls as they have made this lockdown so much fun for Tália – she loves to be with them and loves to be ‘one of the gang’.

Today, I was back into routine after having a little bit of a break over the Easter weekend. I let my hair down and chilled over the weekend –  I watched Hairspray with Tara and spoiled myself by watching some old episodes of Friends.

Easter was so different from the usual but we did manage to touch base with our family and friends and whilst we can’t be physically together, it was still wonderful to see their warm smiling faces and to spend quality time with them.  I also caught up with many of my closest friends – I have more of a social life than ever before :) – this is something I want to keep doing after lockdown.  We have been connected with people across the globe – HK, UK, Gibraltar, Germany, and France. The uncanny thing is that we are all in lockdown, all in the same position.

Friendship Quote

Friendship is really important and at times like this, there is nothing better to chat and be in the company of close friends and family.  It never ceases to amaze me how I may not chat with a friend for nearly two years but when we re-connect it is as though nothing has changed.
