I had never consciously thought about writing about my life but, subconsciously, I had been doing it for years. Blogging under the sub-heading of My Life to Date and How I’ve Survived It. That was the clue.

During Lockdown, I suddenly felt the urge to start writing about my life to date.  I had two large writing projects in the mix, which I should have been focussing on but, I couldn’t.   It was a surreal time, which gave us all so much time to reflect and to reminisce.  

A halcyon day – losing myself in the Indian Ocean 2013

Lockdown concentrated our minds about what we want to do with the rest of our lives when this weird period is finally behind us, and it also brought back colourful images of our halcyon days.  

Those memorable holidays in far-flung places, going to the theatre and being a part of the beating heart of London’s vibrant West End, or even an evening with friends in the pub. 

We are not out of the Coronavirus Woods yet, and the continuing threat of succumbing to COVID-19 galvanised me into recording some the events in my life to date, for posterity.
