It’s been another challenging week and looks as though things will get worse before they get better.
I am trying to keep reminding myself that this is a humanitarian issue, but I have to admit my heart sank when I read this morning that the Premier League are considering voiding this season. I sincerely hope they go for a temporary suspension (or even ending the League now) instead. And yes, I know, First World problem 😉
This first piece made me laugh because I have to admit, I suffer from this. What makes a face punchable? [2 min read – warning some language]

Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s a good one. Social events here are being limited as I’m sure they are where you are, so I think it’s going to be a quiet one.
