Q. How are you managing with Christmas preparations?
My daughter and I always enjoy Christmas especially the tree and decorations. This year however is going to be extremely difficult due to the rising cost of food and utility bills. We have cut back as much as possible and we have been given a food hamper including turkey from a local group that my daughter attends which we are very grateful to receive. This year however I have reached the point where it is just not possible for us to use the heating in order to stay warm through the cold winter. With the fast increase in Covid cases and no real plan or guidance from the government even the return to school after the holidays is not certain giving us even more to be concerned about. We will continue to hope for the best and keep ourselves as safe and healthy as possible. These are very challenging times.
