It was announced today that South Yorkshire would enter Tier 3 restrictions from Saturday. Greater Manchester will move into Tier 3 from Friday following a breakdown of negotiations between local leaders and government. It feels as if Liverpool & Merseyside have been in Tier 3 for a while now. Wales announced this past Monday that it's going into full lockdown for 2 weeks. London moved into Tier 2 over the weekend. And the list continues...
It definitely feels like we've entered a new period of uncertainty this past week and a bit, with so many questions that don't yet have answers. Are we heading for a second national lockdown? Are we likely to see children's playgrounds and nurseries close? And what about schools and universities? What will be the impact on businesses, and particularly small businesses? What about Christmas?! Surly the effects of mental health on individuals is greater, particularly for those with businesses that are forced to cease trading?
I share these anxieties and frustrations with you. Where has all the joy and fun of 2020 gone? The smiles, the cuddles and the roaring laughter; the kind that makes your sides ache, tears streaming down your cheeks, and you can barely breathe.
But I 100% believe in the old wives' tale. Laughter truly is the best medicine and I will do everything I can to bring a smile to your face. Just watch Elin and I go down the slide together! 🤣 If we can continue to bring joy and laughter to each other, then we will, for sure, all get through this together.
And finally, it feels all too relevant again now to say Thank You so much to all of you fabulous Cocorosers for your continued support, trust, loyalty and care for us. It really is so heart warming and so, so appreciated. Thank you.
Keep Safe and Carry On,
Janan & Team Cocorose xx
