A Corona Christmas - testing positive for Covid

This Christmas was certainly not an ordinary one. Bear and I tested positive for Covid -19 and have been self isolating the last 10 days. 
Kids have thankfully showed no symptoms (pretty much me neither for that matter), but Bear is still certainly not 100%, two weeks after he fist started feeling unwell. He has mainly had a cough, fatigue and pain in his limbs. 

Im so grateful we found out just in time before we had plans to have my vulnerable Mum over, and instead we had a Zoom Christmas where we connected for hours on end with her and the rest of the family, and I think it's better to see this scenario as an unexpected positiv. Now we're just waiting for her to get the vaccine so we can all relax and exhale. It's been a tough year for her not seeing her grandkids etc!

Today NHS' Track and Trace service called and said we're allowed out now whoop! Starbucks is first on the list, then a long brisk walk around Regents Park.  


My brother Erik who is a respiratory doctor and works on the Covid ward has had his first jab of the vaccine and is waiting for the second and last one which follows 21 days later, so watch this space.

Chiltern Firehouse pre lockdown

Courtyard cocktails and nibbles with Anna ❤︎


London Embankment on Boris Bikes

For those who dont know, The Embankment along the River Thames offers spectacular views of the London skyline (especially on a day like this when the sun was out!) is filled with stunning historic attraction with South Bank across the river. The area is very lively and fast paced with the "cycle superhighway3" that we used on our rented Boris Bikes.
