"The new restrictions were announced this week which don’t make much difference to us as we’ve had local restrictions since end of July. However, it still has brought up a raft of feelings to add to the overwhelming sense of frustration. It continues to feel as though I am treading water. I want to adhere to the rules and am keeping away from things as much as possible but the isolation at times is difficult. The positive today was receiving the lovely little welcome back from the research team; amazing that something so small can brighten my whole day. Thank you "
