Any thoughts of marathoning went right out of the window but I've still maintained my fitness as training runs are just part of my everyday life. Although we aren't completely out of the woods yet, I am feeling much more upbeat about everything and trotted off to complete the Sevenoaks 30 mile LDWA at the weekend which was just the tonic I needed.
I have been exceedingly active on the crafting front as I found both crochet and knitting very calming during the endless waiting. Interestingly, the projects I chose were not all nice, easy, mindless patterns (with the exception of Mike's cowl below) but required much concentration which in a way helped keep me focussed on something other than what was going on around us. I don't seem to have photos of my crochet or the other knitting projects so will just leave these here as a taster with more details to follow.

I have a massive collection of photos of many different things to share so hope to crack on with uploading them sooner rather than later although I suspect some things will be left unrecorded.
There's plenty going on with Alzheimer's Research UK too as I've been remiss in updating all the latest News. Must try harder!
Thank you to everyone who's emailed me to check I'm OK (I'd forgotten I used to have my email address on here - until I kept getting thousands of spam emails!), your kind words meant a lot. Hopefully normality will return sometime soon.
