A little light at a difficult time.
« on: March 24, 2020, 06:51:58 PM »
Just had my 55th birthday. Was very surprised and delighted to receive a handmade car from overseas. At first it stumped me as to who may have sent it, but...





It had to be from a member here!

Many thanks Diane, really made my day.

And so, into lockdown we go (in New Zealand).  I live alone most of the time (wife works in another town and is in essential services - Pharmacist).  Having no social or community support is going to be tough, and now being separated from work colleagues will add to the isolation.  Well, it's got to be done.

Hi Diane,

Thank you.  The card arrived a few days before my birthday, but I didn't open it until the day!

Hi David,

I thought I may have posted it a little late to arrive in time.  Crazy thing is, my son who has the same birthday (thatís how I remembered) and lives a few streets away from me didnít get his birthday cards from me as we when into lockdown the day before.
