    Chanie, I have recovered from Covid-19 but I am left with fatigue and some memory issues. I have had some arthritic pain, but it responds well to my usual painkillers. Thank you for asking. 

    I have been busy reading and watching lots of TV programmes. I am getting ready for my grandson's 21st birthday next week and  one of my great niece's birthday next Saturday.
