wow coronavirus stats

Just heard on our news, we here in ireland have over 3000 cases of corona virus now. We’ve had 13 more deaths today bringing our death total to 71.
its so scary. They are predicting that the virus will peak for us from April 10th to april 14th. There is supposed to be a spike in cases then.
So the advice to all is, stay put, stay home, dont go anywhere unnecessarily. I am glad I have a home, I am also glad I dont have underlying medical conditions that make me suseptible to catching it.
Small blessings, a lot to be thankful for.

I love kind people!

I had such a lovely experience going home today.

The taxi driver who brought me was awesome! He was very friendly, and when we got to my house he not only carried my shopping bag and laptop in to my front door, he actually waited until I’d opened the door and he put them into my hallway for me. I was so grateful to him as I had Nitro so I wasnt able to carry extra bags.

I love it when people are kind. We had a nice conversation on our way to my house. I was asking him if he was nervous having people in his taxi, in case he caught coronavirus. He said no, that if your gonna catch it your gonna catch it. I guess that is somewhat true, but I’m nervous getting in taxi’s now since I dont know whose been in them before me.

But it was a very nice experience and interaction and it has really restored my faith in humanity, I’ve had problems recently in taxi’s, with some drivers. The company I used today, I use them a lot. So I know a lot of the drivers, and I knew this guy too. I tipped him a few extra euros for helping me to bring in my bags. He deserved that.

Biggie, our parents dog, has made a miraculous recovery!

He seems to be fine again! He is eating, drinking, and he’s walking fine!

I am so, so elated! He is such a trooper!

We’re all super happy! He might have another couple of months with us! Yay!

I dont know if it was a bug he caught, from something he ate while he was out in the garden, not sure, but whatever it was, he has recovered!

That dog is a miracle dog! Thank god and thank you all for all of the prayers!

what a cutie!

Nitro is being so cute! He’s in his bed, snoring loudly!
I love when he does that!
He’s so adorable!
I wish I could get a picture of him or take a video!
But if I go over to where he is he’ll stop!
Animals are so amazing! I am so glad I have Nitro. He makes me so happy.
I am so proud to be his mommy!

Done and dusted!

I’m done guys! College is over! finished! Finito!

I went in this morning for my final day!

We had presentations to get through! I did mine on depression in teens! It went absolutely amazing! I got fantastic feedback afterwords! The lecturer said I did great and it was an excellent presentation!

I was very very happy with how it went!

And now, we’re done! Done until graduation in may!

Well it might be april when we graduate, I’m just not exactly sure yet when it will be.

I came home, wrote up my learner log and now I’ve just emailed it to my friend denise who will upload it for me onto canvas!

And now I can breathe! What a day! What a terrific feeling to be able to say I did it! I got through this past year of studying! I’m done! I will be graduating and now I’m free!

I’m sooo proud of myself! I managed to get through it! What a blessing that is!
