Deadline missed

I really did intend to do a blog during February but somehow life, and events in general, just got in the way and so I didn't.

So now we have the most dreadful situation. We were just starting to get used to living with Covid, although I know it's going to be with us even though all the restrictions have been lifted, and then Putin decided to invade the Ukraine. 

What, really? 

The images we see in the News are so harrowing and unbearably sad. Those poor people. The scenes are unbelievable. Women and children fleeing across the borders, some carrying terrrified animals, whilst their men folk head off to defend their country with no training. Ukrainian women and children tying fabric to netting as camouflage to send to soldiers on the frontline.

Children asking what it's all about. They should not have to worry about where they will sleep at night or when they will get some food. 

So many sad stories.

I've borrowed this story from Facebook:

My heart goes out to everyone affected by this and my thoughts and prayers are with those affected.

A photographer took this beautiful photo of clouds over Kviv that look as if they've formed into the shape of a Guardian Angel for the people:

I have a folder full of photos of craft, running, Nature etc to upload onto here but I really don't have the stomach for it right now.

God bless everyone affected by this and please know that the thoughts and prayers of the whole civilised world are with you.
