Keep smiling / these are tricky times for all.


It’s a bit of a crazy place just now and a lot of folk are feeling the world is mad at time’s. Yet sadly there are so many good stories about. Look at what the Nurses, Doctors Para medics, health support workers are doing.

There are so many good folk out there. I was so lucky to meet so many in my life in Search and Rescue I’m so many Agencies. These were normal folk in the Police, Mountain Rescue Teams. Helicopter crews, Search and Rescue Dogs. We worked with many more in the Coastguards, Lifeboats so many folk giving up time to help others.

These folk rarely make the news, their stories are seldom told sadly good news seems not newsworthy.

I never knew the term “Black Dog” now I understand a lot more how some folk get depressed. I am glad people are talking about depression and you would not believe how many it effects.

So let’s keep an eye on each other just now even those we think are strong still struggle. Many who read this will all be part of helping others over the years. We all need love and support so let’s not forget our friends and those we love !

As the kids are getting ready for Christmas the trees and decorations are going up. Let’s enjoy this happy period but not forget those less fortunate !
