    Hi All.
    This is a brilliant idea.
    For me,I am lucky,a great and supportive wife and family.
    This pandemic however has not been without its problems...Two of my three children faced redundancy,but seem to have dodged the axe although one of my sons still is not sure when he will fly again (BA Pilot)
    Like most of us,if my children feel pain so do I.
    This site gives us all the ability to share our hobby and have some light hearted entertainment.
    Keep it up Ladies and Gents.
    Regards.
    Bill

    Hi GARTH,

    It is good that building and sailing the model helped you.

    As these lockdowns are getting more restrictive more and more of us are unable to go out to enjoy our hobby or even to socialise.
    So it is even more important that we all talk and not bottle things up as that could lead to all sorts of troubles.

    So if you are lucky to be able to go out and about then please remember HANDS, FACE, SPACE.

    Stay safe.

    I just want to write that doing a blog & building a model last March help a lot with this pandemic & doing some model boat sailing also helps but being social creatures we forget to protect ourselves. Someone will ask a question and may be a little too close to you & you forget to tell them to not get so close and you aren't wearing a mask so we all need to remember to protect ourselves .πŸ˜€

    I'm lucky that talk comes easy to me.If I have difficulty it's in the written word.Not everyone is able to get out what bothers them and having this volunteer format is a good way to get help.Some times it's hard for us to say we need help or we need a little support. I have a good support group around me and use it when in need.
    As members you have a support group around you use it as it will help not only you but those listening.Lets help each other help all.We are in this pandemic together.This is my way of thinking out loud.

    I know the restriction are very high in England!

    Covid 19 is nothing to joke about!

    I have decided to become a Mental Health & Wellbeing Ambassador!

    Because a little over a year ago.

    My Mother passed away!

    I thought I could handle it!

    But, I was becoming Depressed about the situation!

    I needed to talk and I've been good friends with Martin555!

    I confided in him!

    We spoke on many occasions!

    And this talking really helped me!

    Although this has nothing to do with the restriction in England!

    I just want to say If your feeling down and depressed!

    Confided in one of us as your ambassadors of M.H & W.V.!

    Lets talk about it!

    It really helps and talking about, it really does help!

    Cheers, And good mental health!

    Just read this article - there may be some bits to pick out that may resonate with you...

    "you sit down at your desk, ready to dive into whatever is on your plate. Then the white noise of every worry you have right now starts to make itself heard in your brain. Pandemic. Economy. Unemployment. Politics. Current events. Holiday shopping."

    "humans generally aren’t well-suited to living in a highly prolonged state of unpredictability, and it’s showing"

    Bejesus Bill, tis another miracle!
    I had a sneakin' feelin' you weren't native to Dundalk!
    Carried away by a darlin' Coleen were we?πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
    As I understand our family history I must be about 1/4 Irish so that may explain why I sometimes make some unusual logic jumps and come up with the right answer!
    And wearing my heart on my sleeve also fitsπŸ™„
    Apropos accents; my problem on my first visit to Eire was not to unintentionally start to mimic the local accents. I seem to have the inborn talent/curse of easily being able to mimic voices and accents that I hear around me! If I'm not very careful I'll slip into it, which of course can be taken as insulting although it is not at all intendedπŸ€”
    Sorry, Just passing by Blarney Castle is just NOT ON Bill!
    Put ya foot down next time! That's an order Chief!!😎
    I was only there once, and sensed that I would likely never be there again.
    So I let myself be suspended by the ankles over the famous stone and kissed the damn thing!
    You can see the effects in some of my posts here😁
    I was quite the shy type before that experience.
    Know what you mean about the road signs BillπŸ™„
    I trundled about southern Eire long before the days of GPS and without the current AA Book of the Road I'd have been a four wheeled version of 'Up the creek without a paddle'!
    Only way we are gonna find out how our accents sound 'on here', as you put it, is to phone!
    PM me if you wish. I haven't bothered with Skype up to now, but in terms of this thread I can see it's potential and can install if needed.
    All the best, SlÑinte chugat. Doug 😎
